We are pleased to offer for sale this Gold Panning Equipment Prospecting Kit - 3 Sifters / Classifiers, 2 Gold Pans, Tweezers, Glass Vials and Shovel.  This Gold Prospecting Set includes 3 Gold Sifters of varying mesh size, two different sized gold pans, three different glass vials, magnifying illuminated tweezers, and one shovel.   The mesh sizes included in the Classifier Set for Gold Prospecting are: 1/2", 1/8", and 1/20".  Each Sifter has built in stainless steel mesh firmly attached to its green plastic frame.  The dimensions of each piece of this Prospecting Sifter Set are 13.25" for the upper diameter and 11" for the lower diameter, with overall height of 3.25".   Gold Classifiers are specifically made to work with multiple sized Mesh Classifiers in one stack.  Gold Sifters sort out anything larger than their mesh size, generally rocks that you do not want in your gold pan, and allow for the panning step to follow.  The Gold Pans included in this set are made from high impact durable plastic.  They are in 14" diameter and 10" diameter sizes.  The tweezers have an LED light and a 1" diameter 4X magnifying lens. The glass vials included are in 3 different sizes, holding 0.10 oz, 0.17 oz, and 0.24 oz.   The Trowel included in this set is made of heavy duty extra strength nylon and is 11" in length.  This Gold Prospecting Set works great with any 5 gallon bucket.  The sifters fit perfectly upon the bucket and allow you to pan out the residual.  This Set for Gold Prospecting  is new from our inventory.


Information on How to Pan for Gold!

  1. Where can you find gold?  With the right setup, some basic knowledge, patience, a little luck, and the right equipment, you can find gold in many places across the U.S. 
  2. Use classifier(s) to selectively filter out particles of different sizes.  We recommend pouring into a 5 gallon bucket.  Most prospectors that use these mesh strainers check through each layer for possible gold nuggets in with the rocks and debris and then scour the residual in their gold pan.
  3. Shovel a small amount of strained material (4-5 handfuls) into your Gold Pan.  Make sure all material in the pan is wet (It is advised that you keep the pan underwater while panning).  Break up any clumps of material, and remove any rocks that you have not filtered out.
  4. Swirl the Gold Pan in a counter-clockwise motion. Swirling does two things: I. Allows gold to begin settling at the bottom of the Gold Pan.  II. Brings unwanted dirt and gravel to the top of the Gold Pan.
  5. After swirling, switch motion to a gentle "side to side" motion which helps with the gold settling to the bottom of the Gold Pan.
  6. Tip your Gold Pan and allow the water current to rinse off the top layer of dirt and gravel. **Be careful to only rinse one layer at a time, gold could be washed away if too much material is rinsed at once.
  7. Slowly move your Gold Pan forwards and backwards to assist in the washing away of unwanted materials.
  8. Repeat steps 2 through 5 until you only have a few spoonfuls of material left in your Gold Pan. This material usually looks like black sand. 
  9. Look in your pan for gold flakes or slivers.  If they are present, swirl hard enough to keep them collected at the bottom of the Gold Pan.
  10. Collect your GOLD and celebrate!!
