    Need some advice..Panning for gold?

    I am sure I could try my hand and learn along the way, but I figured I would ask you assholes first.

    How do you pan for Gold? I know there were a few threads on that other site, but I think this would be good tech to document on Irate!

    Any ideas ThePanzerFuhrer ?

    My advice is: include your subject in the the thread title if you're looking to create a local resource

          What will be really funny is when there isn't actually any gold in that sand and you pan it over and over again for nothing.

            Dirts and water go in pan, you shake it a bunch, and dump out anything that isn't gold.

              Get a metal detector & search for gold. Thank me later-

                Start by running a magnet thru it while dry.

                  Lol hope you have fun. Panning for gold is a skill all men should have. Start small and pan it into another tub that way if you mess up you can try again lol.

                    I suggest you go about it the old fashioned, and current 3rd world, way. Dump in some mercury, wait until it absorbs all of the gold, dump it in a pan and burn off the mercury. Make sure to inhale all of the fumes you can along the way

                      I do it like I fish, a little too fast and I lose interest if I don't get results right away.

                        Find a bar in the suburbs go about mid week mid day and start asking the lady's.

                              I could be wrong, but I feel like gold panning in Kansas is like chilling on the coast in AZ.



                              First learn where to pan

                              The technique on moving the pan around is pretty easy to learn, I'm not good at it, but I've done it once at our local "gold Nugget days" which celebrates the discovery of a 54 lb gold Nugget just down the road from me
