DOC Posted August 2, 2020 Report Share Posted August 2, 2020 (edited) I did a little experiment to see how effective the Gold SPOT™ Treasure Scoop Portable Gold Pan is for dry panning. This scoop was developed not only to be a more effective nugget recovery tool when using your metal detector but also as an effective tool when crevassing and sampling. This is useful when you are looking for deposits of small nuggets and flakes of gold in cracks in bedrock. So for this experiment, I mixed 1 gram of 14 mesh gold, that would be about 30 or so tiny nuggets and a half of a gram of 18 mesh gold which would be around 40- 45 little flakes total 1.5 grams with dirt and black sand. I mixed it up and put the Gold SPOT™ Scoop to work to see how effectively it could recover these tiny pieces of gold. What's your guess? How much of the 1.5 grams do you think the Gold SPOT™ was able to recover by only dry panning with no water? Get in touch with Rob he just got another load of them in.
