My first attempt at panning!
I’m still a good way from getting the weight as there is some very fine gold dust in with the not so wanted dirt!
I’m also getting the the fine dirt in with the gold?
I need a whole lot more practice at this!

Hi Matt ,
That little coin is 1863 not 1963 smile

That dirt is looking good so far , you may need to pan it a couple of times to get most of the very fine gold out .
Like most I'm keen to know what the final weight is .

Cheers

The bits I can separate with tweezers and an eye dropper 1.16 grams Thanks you very much Outback!
Still have a lot of fines to separate, I will keep you posted.

Honestly I didn’t expect to come out in front, I wanted to see and and pan the raw materials, also have some of the real deal to test the detector with.
Can’t tell you how happy I am with the results.
Although if you put it on an hourly rate just for panning then I won’t be leaving my day job!

Hi Outback, I've been reading some of your earlier posts on your dry winder as I've been looking for a dry classifer, I'm interested in it to buy if your ready to sell!
any more progress with your Drywinder?

Hi Matt

If you didn't throw the dirt out, you could repan a few times for practice.
Amazing how much easier it gets after a few sessions practising.

Also my friend Gunter showed me how brutal you can be with dumping the dirt/sand and the gold really does stay in the pan.

Practice more and you will be a pro in no time.

Thanks STC, I did pan it out four times and I kept the tiny bit of dust in the black sand that I couldn’t separate. (I’ll put it in my pan if I ever find some for myself!)
The bulk of the time I spent with it was the dust in among the black sand, but I think it was worth it as you can see it went from 1.16 gram to 1.9, still the only gold I have!
I have now added what dirt that was left to my back yard.
I didn’t understand what outbacks Dry winder was at the time and I think it’s a good simple machine to add value to my adventure!

Hi Matt ,
Not a classifier but a concentrator smile

Have decided not to release any of the previous models , the newest design is probably close to what is possible ~ efficiency .

I have a professional gold prospector testing the unit in WA at the moment , he uses all the known methods & gear to score gold including detectors like the 7000 etc .
The idea is to find what tool returns the most weight ( profit ) consistently for one mans effort .

Cheers
Jack .

Thanks Jack, the dry winder “concentrater” certainly works as the fines in my pan show!
While detecting I keep finding patches of hot ground and I can’t take bags and bags back to the Ute to drive 4hours home and pan then take the overburden back again!
If I find the patch, mark on the gps return later with a concentrater and carry away a few hundred grams of pay dirt makes very good sense to me!
The other thing is if I move 6 square meters of hot ground let’s say 300mm deep and then run the detector over previously undetected ground I may well have a nugget or a lead to follow?
I believe detecting is a great loaming tool but not the only tool for prospecting!
My plan is to have a dry concentrater and a wet one.
