North Georgia Gold
Got out for a little panning in Woodstock today with a couple friends... It was small fine stuff, but we had gold in just about every pan.

Hoping to pan out my cons from dalongha this weekend!

How'd ya do? Any pickers?

Hey New Guy here, I've found gold as a Divemaster here at home in Florida, but hope to get out and try panning in GA, NC or SC this spring and summer. I have friends in Alaska I visit for fishing so maybe I'll find a stream and give it shot there too. Any day under wild blue skies is a great day! Newbies need love (and gold) too!

Yes the water was very chilly, but when gold fever sets it, it'll warm ya up :-)

I hear that! I went out this morning and was on the creek but 7;15am. My wife thinks I am crazy but I tell her the same thing....See a little yellow in your pan and you forget about everything else!LMAO!

Ya I hear ya, my buddy's and my wife think were crazy too. Maybe there right?! Ya we didn't even venture out there until 10am on Wednesday.

Got my pan in the mail the other day along with 20 lbs of paydirt I bought just to practice. I'll be damned, just four or five scoopfuls into the process and I have 2 flakes and an itty bitty picker a bit bigger than the head of a pin. Now if I could only figure out how to stand up after 4 hours of this I'd be in better shape. AND, if my brother tries pouring Goldshlager on my dirt one more time I'm going knock him out. Having fun, very relaxing but OY the back!

Sounds good, make sure you season those new pans
Mar 11, 2013, 04:42 PM
Drywallman quick question, How do you season a pan? I'm new to this and just got my first pan.
Mar 11, 2013, 06:24 PM
What you are looking to do is lightly scuffing the pan and also removing any oils from manufacturing. So I would suggest hitting the whole thing real lightly with some fine sandpaper like 200 grit, then wash it out with a little dish soap. Also a drop of dish soap or jet dry will change the surface tension of water and help prevent gold floating while you are panning cons at home. If you've never heard of floating gold check this out...
