On a recent fishing trip to Copeton dam I travelled down to Bingara and done a tour of
3 creeks Gold Mine owned by Paul Myer who was a wealth of knowledge and a great host. He makes a product called A Panners Mate which I was taught to use as well as learning to pan. Great fast and easy to use system, I haven't purchased the kit yet but will once I build up funds again.
Cheers Jamie.

My head almost exploded watching those YouTube’s.

I would not mind trying one out but for $990 can’t see it happening anytime soon.

Hi AussieChris,
Know what you mean regarding$$$ however if you are ever up that way for $25.00 drop in and try them out, you may just change your mind. There was a full panners kit there for around $600/$660 and I thought that if I was going to pay that much I would definitely pay the extra for the Panners Mate as there was no comparision for ease of use and volume.

Yes I have to totally agree with you there.
The concept I get, and makes sense.
His alone choice to market and package as is.
But an individual package alone with the pan included might be more tempting.
I think price will hinder sales dramatically.

??? Rediculous amount of money , get a large bucket / tub and fill with water , drop a good pan like a garrett super sluice into it with material , and go and buy a hand scarifier from bunnings for about ten bucks , and give it a good stir with that .

I normally classify my dirt with sieves into a plastic washtub full of water before i run it through the sluice or pan it depending on creek water levels , for that sort of money all i can see that im getting , which i dont already have is a fancy dirt stirrer , which i can do with a hand scarifier.

I love seeing new ideas and new gear and I would certainly give it a burl for $25, but like others above suggested, hard to go past a garret super sluice. Side by side I dare say most of us would be able to pan 4 of those small shovels out in the same time.
God knows since the high bankers are gathering dust my panning hours have gone through the roof.
