We are pleased to offer for sale this 5" 3oz Snifter Bottle for Gold Panning / Prospecting. This 3oz Snifter Bottle is designed specifically for gold panning! The squeeze bottle is a standard "Boston round". The tubing is very ridged and clear with an outside diameter of .187" and an inside diameter of .125" (1/8"). The inside diameter is perfect for snifting gold. This diameter allows you to pinpoint the gold and snuff only the gold without all the other material around it. The washers are specially machine cut for an exact fit. The inside hole of the washer was cut 7/100 of an inch smaller than the tubing diameter to guarantee an airtight seal. The washers also provide a very tight seal with the cap. Gold panning requires the proper equipment for an enjoyable experience, these quality Gold Snifter Bottles will perform beyond your expectations!
Information on How to Pan for Gold!
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.
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.
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.
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.
After swirling, switch motion to a gentle "side to side" motion which helps with the gold settling to the bottom of the Gold Pan.
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.
Slowly move your Gold Pan forwards and backwards to assist in the washing away of unwanted materials.
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.
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.
Collect your GOLD with your snuffer bottle and celebrate!!
