    Recent gold results. On the left is from the honey hole I sent Utah Mason and Ultraminer to last week. On the right is from the panning tubs at the GPAA Gold & Treasure Show last weekend. I hit the tubs at the very end of the weekend so I wasn’t taking gold out of a paying customer’s pan. Funny how much -100 mesh gold was in there, just overlooked by all the newbies and kids

    Not surprising at all, in fact they expect it. That dirt that's panned is surely run again by GPAA.
    Lets say a bag of dirt costs the panner $10, each bag has $5 of gold, and the panner only recovers $3 in gold. They are happy for the experience, and GPAA gets all their money back after the show. Good racket

    Well, sorta. They don’t run it again, they just haul it to the next show and add fresh gold there! The Denver Show was number 5 of 6 for the spring season. I figure the large amount of 150 mesh gold was accumulated over the 5 shows. Newbie panners wouldn’t even see it in the pan!

    Just wanted to show off my banner. This was at the Denver GPAA Gold and Treasure Show a couple weeks ago. I sold a hundred books and had a ton of fun 🏻
