The Gold Pan

The Gold Pan

The gold pan is the most essential part of any prospectors equipment, it is the easiest and most efficient way of separating gold from the lighter materials in a river on a small scale. You will usually receive a small and large gold pan in a gold panning kit.

Gold Pans are fairly cheap to buy nowadays as most of them are now made of durable plastics, up until the last 20 years or so most gold pans would have been made of metal, although these are still available. The plastic versions available to buy are of a high grade and are superior to the old time ones – many of the older gold pans do not have as many riffles in them as they are harder to beat out of the metal, whereas in the plastic versions its simply a matter of thermoplastic moulding.

Below are different types of gold pans for sale, i will arrange them from large to small depending on what size you need –
