Panning in the Backyard

Here is a fine little inexpensive panning station I set up in the yard. I copied it directly from
” Askjeffwilliams.com ” on Youtube. It is portable to so you can pack it into the field and use it almost anywhere. Jeff Williams has tons of good videos for prospecting and I highly recommend watching them.

So I collected a couple more buckets of dirt last Tuesday after work and I am about to see if they have any gold. I screened them down to 1/4″ and panned them out.

Check your screen before tossing it into the tailings you might find some interesting rock.

Well it was a bust no gold to speak of just a few specks that were to small to even tweezer out.

So now what to do with the tailings, I use them for my landscape and garden borders, also starting a small rock stockpile for future use.

I also used the panning water in the garden so it wasn’t wasted.
