I enjoy spending some money on paydirt.
It gets a prospector used to panning and ensures some gold at the end of the day. When planning a weekend of prospecting this comes in handy.
Also useful to practice your panning skills or introduce someone to prospecting.
I will go over the 5 Paydirt’s that I have bought and tested on amazon.
This will give you a genuine idea of what is inside before trying it out yourself as well as avoid any scams.
Because yes, some of these are scams and should be avoided.
1. Klesh Gold Blast Paydirt
Best on this list, in my opinion, chunky gold to be found as well as gemstones. The seller is an acknowledged expert and takes care in preparing what he sells.
A very safe bet compared to some of the products on Amazon. Will give you a good panning exercise as well as contain a minimum of one gram of gold. You will also find gemstones, I guarantee 😉
Comes sealed, feels authentic, and ensures a fun panning experience.
Weight: 8.6 ounces
ROI: +/- 80 $
Special Offers: 1 gram guaranteed
Price: 115 $
2. Goldn Badger ‘Colossal’ Paydirt Panning Pay Dirt Bag
One of the larger bags on the list whilst not being too expensive. It’s a good exercise due to how much material you need to pan through.
Ideal for a prospector wanting to get used to the panning process. Not the most incredible gold ROI and the material is a bit dusty but not a scam.
Weight: 32 ounces
ROI: +/- 17$
Special Offers: “Honey Hole” Bags contain 2-5x Bonus Added Gold!! Some bags contain 1+ grams of gold! 1 in 3 Bags = “HONEY HOLE”.
Price: 37.5 $
3. Goldn pay dirt – Eureka Panning Pay Dirt Bag
This has many good reviews but is a scam beware. They ask people to fill in 5 lines of review before they receive the product. I have also tested a larger bag of their’s and the return was ridiculous. A company to totally avoid.
It’s important to read the fine print as well as the size of the bag. The bag size is tiny and the gold content is minuscule, if not nonexistent to less experienced panners.
Not a good buy, not good to train with, and not much excitement in the end.
Weight: 6.7 ounces
ROI: 3 $
Special Offers: 1 IN 3 BAGS = Motherlode Bag!
MOTHERLODE GOLD PAYDIRT BAGS = 2-5x bonus added gold, some bags contain half+ gram of gold!
Price: 24 $
4. PIONEER GOLD Paydirt Panning Pay Dirt Bag
22.5 dollars and you will find gold enough to fill a dry day prospecting or simply as a gift to a new prospector.
The material is clean and very enjoyable to pan, you can find pickers as well as fine gold, not the very fine flaky gold some bags contain.
weight: 8 ounces
ROI: +/- 5$
Special Offers: ‘MORELODE Bags’ will contain 2x-5x Bonus Added Gold! MOTHERLODE Bags occur on average 1 in 2 bags
Price: 22.50 $
5. Kenai Gram Kracker
The biggest bag on the list, a real 1.4 pounds to pan through. 1g of gold is also ensured, and I always got at least 1g. The gold is not as chunky as the Klesh pay dirt on the other hand.
Alaskan material with black sand to pan through, enjoyable experience.
It’s a good buy for a passionate prospector or someone trying to share their passion with another.
Weight: 1.4 pounds
ROI: +/- 80 $
Special Offers: Enriched each bag with 1 GRAM OF GOLD
Price: 99.99 $
I would recommend the Klesh bag for new prospectors as it will be the most fun.
I would stay well away from the company Goldn Paydirt on Amazon.
If you are on a tighter budget, I would recommend the Goldn Badger Colossal Bag .
Thank you for reading and I hope you find some gold!
