    "but it could make a good hat as mentioned. I'm gonna stick with my Stetson though even though it cost more. I would try one if someone loaned it to me, but you just can't beat a $10 pan .

    $50?!?!! Does it come with Starship Enterprise shaped classifier? The Garrett Super Sluice is $8.46 on Amazon. Garrett's deluxe gold pan kit is $42.45 and it comes with everything a n00b would need to get started.

    That is the way they are, even 150 years ago. Up here in NoCA when the chinese came over for the CA gold rush all the area they could get for mining from the white miners was area that had already been picked over. They went in and processed it and still made a living, but probably then wasted it in the opium dens.

    looks like we have a drive by but pretty old though. He made his one and only post on Oct 5 2016. That is the day he joined t-net and also the last time he visited. Which means he has not even seen any of the great comments.

    I had to hunt google to see what he was even talking about. Maybe someone else snuck in and relayed a few. The model I saw was not clear it is some kind of green and a single pan is now $25 and not fifty.

    He might have been a good contributing member if he just stuck around.

    Pretty sure his post was only meant to generate funding for his kickstarter account.
    Looks like he was pretty good at generating donations from around the net.

    LOL..... You got me to thinking about the same thing....
    Tallied up my equipment expenses and I'm in at about $650.
    And my take so far..... At todays spot about $70.
    Granted I don't get out nearly as much as I could and this is beach gold gotta move a lot of sand for that....

    Time and knowledge change that as your time in mining grows. I'm on the other side, way ahead of my equipment costs.

    If I was digging in a spot that produced better than half a gram for like 50 hours of digging maybe I'd be ahead lol... Granted much of that time was when I was really new and was running a lot of overburden instead of better gravels. Pretty sure the spot I have access too right now was only profitable when they hydraulic mined the entire mountain and made the low-grade pay. The river was finally starting to get low enough after 5 years of drought where some better spots were opening up, but that's gone now lol.

    New Nevada adventures in the future though!

    I spent more money this winter then probably my whole prospecting career but I'm sure I'll get it back and then some this spring... I love that we are having all this wet weather but I cant wait for the snow to melt so I can get into my claim.

    Oh man. For 1g you should have 1g in gold. That's close to double your take. :P

    Haha... if I had more time to dig I'd have more gold. The issue is when I have to rationalize time = money and digging low grade doesn't pay that well. Not like I can dig every day for less take than my cost in gas. I really missed out on last summer. The fires really turned me off from going to to the river, and I know if I had taken some time to dig in the trench I would have had some nice pickers to show for it.

    It's all good. The adventures continue, and I finance my toys by putting in extra time at work, and I can't pay for the feeling that being out in nature gives me by working more hours inside. I'm hoping by this spring and after the runoff the rain will open up something worth digging. Otherwise I'm going to have to call up my friends in Auburn and tell them I'm coming to visit!
