Lucky 33 is now offering the recreational gold panning experience. Come join the fun and pan for gold like the miners once did.


As with any gold panning, there is never a guarantee that you will find gold, unless otherwise stated.


Our virgin paydirts and concentrates come from mining ventures in several different states -- Alaska, California, Washington State, North Carolina -- and our gold ore is from Colorado

Terms

Paydirt: When a prospector is out in the wild, and finds a place that has produced gold. They will sometimes fill a few pails of the soil, complete with a few leaves and twigs and whatever s in the soil, then take it to a better place to pan it. This is called virgin paydirt. (It has not been gone through at all.) You will have the same chance of finding some gold in that paydirt as would the prospector on a stream. Sometimes the paydirt will also have natural gemstones and gold nuggets.

Concentrates: It takes roughly about 11 pounds of paydirt to make one pound of concentrates. When the paydirt is run through a gold processing machine, the dirt, leaves, gravel, twigs and most all of the “junk” in the paydirt is washed out leaving a classified (sized) concentrate. This is usually 1/2” or smaller. The chances of finding gold in the concentrates are much greater.

Black Sand: The black sands are usually left in your gold pan after a few handfuls have been panned. This is where the fine flour gold hides. Dragging a magnet through it will pick up the black magnetite.
