How to Pan for Gold

  1. 1. Gold Panning Step One http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>Number one is to choose a good location to dig your sand and or gravel from. Since we are looking for gold it only makes sense to find a promising spot to shovel your gold bearing material. Dig behind large boulders or on bedrock for maximum gold/gravel mix. </li></ul>
  2. 2. Gold Panning Step Two http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>Fill your gold pan 3/4 full with the sand and or gravel. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Gold Panning Step Three http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>Place your pan under water and gently shake and rotate. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Gold Panning Step Four http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>Once the large rocks are cleaned of sand particles, discard the rocks by hand. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Gold Panning Step Five http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>Now shake the gold pan from side to side while partly submerging the pan under water. This allows any gold particles to start settling towards the bottom of the pan. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Gold Panning Step Six http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>Tilt the gold pan with the edge that is away from you slightly under water. While shaking side to side, lift and re-submerge the pan above and below the water over and over. You should see the lighter rock and sand being &quot;washed&quot; over the lip into the stream. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Gold Panning Step Seven http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>Continue with this shaking and submerging until there is approximately one cup of rock and or sand material left in the gold pan. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Gold Panning Step Eight http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>Now remove any remaining pebbles (that aren't gold nuggets) and discard them. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Gold Panning Step Nine http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>While shaking in a circular motion, lift and lower your pan above and below the water level with the gold pan tilted away from you. This will wash away most of the remaining lighter material. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Gold Panning Step Ten http://www.mygoldpanning.com/goldpanning101.html <ul><li>What you are left with is a little rock, black sand and gold. Swirl the pan in a circle with a little water and look to see how much gold you have! </li></ul><ul><li>What you are left with is a little rock, black sand and gold.
