    What's your best paydirt?

    I just thought I would see who you are getting your paydirt from and what would you recommend. I just started panning some paydirt. So far I have bought from Lynch Mining, Goldbay and Strike paydirt. Lynch Mining has a Black Friday sale where I ordered a bag Lynch Mining Original for $16.13 and a 5lb bag Belmont Mountain paydirt for $17.10. I found quite a bit of gold in each and was well worth ordering. I heard really good things about Goldbay so I ordered their 3lb bag with a guaranteed 103% ROI. I found 1.4 grams. The last was Strike gold paydirt. I never heard of them and I should have asked before I ordered. What a scam. Out of the 10lb bag I found 0.03 grams. It looked like Goldbay leftovers. Avoid them at all cost. I have another two bags being delivered Friday from Lynch Mining and I am getting ready to order again from Goldbay. I included a picture of my 1.4 grams from Goldbay.

    Just realize that spot price is based on 24k (100%) gold purity.
    You will not get 100% gold purity in paydirt. The purity can and will vary depending on the source.

    Alaskan gold for example can vary from around 70% to as high as 92% pure.
    The purest gold nuggets are found in Australia with purity of 95% and higher.

    That is not to say that some nuggets found in the western states are not as pure as some found in Australia.

    Thats right "natural Gold" is never 100% pure or 24K ,In the 80s% range is the norm .Virginia gold is in the mid 80% range...

    The best pay-dirt I ever got was from a guy I meet on some gold web site . He was/is a traveling salesman from the great state of Texas . He used to sell pay -dirt but doing it on the side of his sales. anyway he was going to be close to me on his sales trip ,SO I invited him over for Bar-B-Q and he responded with a BIG HEAVY BAG of cons for free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Man-O-Man was it rich ! He said it was the last material he had . The next day I took him to a little spot close to where he had rented a room. ALL SMILES !!!!!!!!!! I usually invite guy's traveling through , a place to chill out from all that driving and a cool drink !

    You should check out Roaring Camp's dirt of the month club. This California Mother Lode gold comes from the Mokelume River which is 22k. Look them up at www.roaringcampgold.com

    It's cheaper to buy from the club you belong to and make up your own custom blend of cons! Why pay to have the gravels shipped to you ??
