THE GOLD KING GOLD PAN

Made in Phoenix Arizona

Ok your thinking what is so good about this gold pan that a post is done about it. First up the guy who came up with the design was way ahead of his time with the design. The pan is 16 inches wide at the top and 9 & ½ at the base with a 6 inch by ¼ V shape drop, and is usually blue in colour. Alas the production of this pan stopped when the designer and manufacture passed away some years back but from time to time the pans still pop up second hand.
This pan was and is the best cleanup pan I have ever used due to the V drop and wideness of the base which allows you to run your water both left and right around the rim to clap dead centre over the wash concentrate in the V Drop. At the same time tilting the pan back so the water draws off the black sands with very little movement from the micro sized gold.

Photo see how the black sand is drawn off.

The next best pan is the Garrett Super Sluice pan had this pan been made with the V Drop it would have been a perfect pan but it dose not. This pan due to the wide base it has is also a good pan for clean up, but from time to time you will get movement of micro sized gold which needs pushing back to the top of the pan. I run the water both left and right around the rim to clap dead centre over the wash whilst tilting the pan slightly back towards me, in the same style as I did in the Gold King Pan.

If the pans you are using have a small base it is very difficult to do your final cleanup in the above manner. The colour of your pan is also very important Black is out for a clean up pan you can not see the black sands. But they are great as testing pans cheap and robust.

All the gold you see in the Gold King Gold pan {the blue one} was a typical weekend total of 10 hours work all up. The area was O’allen Ford when it was in it’s prim. Those certainly were the days when we worked those spots - only the top 15 cm or so too. Never seen as good since. SIGH! {well not from that area anyway}

THE GOLD KING GOLD PAN Empty All true!

Seriously, I 100% agree with this post. I tried every pan out there, and like a few of them. But, the Gold King was far and away the best. I left my Gold King in a friends car years ago, and never saw it again. When I tried to replace it, I discovered they were no longer available. Big disappointment. The Garret pan, as mentioned, is the next best thing, at least to my taste and the OP. Keene makes great pans, but I never cared for angle of the sides, and I much prefer the larger size of the Gold King. If you come across one, grab it!

The only problem with the Gold King pan is they are a bit brittle, I have chipped a 2 inch section off the lip on the underside, if I sent it to China to get coppied they would make them all with the same  bit missing. Crying or Very sad
