Brilliant video tutorial on PANNING. All the information that anyone could possibly want or need. If you're just cleaning up from your sluice, or you're using your pan to test a new area, or panning is your preferred method of searching for gold ... THIS IS THE BIBLE!!

OK ... no more Gold Hog advertising ... but thought the techniques might have been interesting to those who are just starting out, or have an interest in family days, picnics & panning. I'm guessing not everyone is able, or wants, to own the GPX5000

Someday I think Kate is referring to some in here who at the mention of Garrett detectors go off as if Minelab was paying them to bully others from even mentioning Garrett ! Lol!

Why would you ,I my opinion , teach a newbie that way of panning ? If any thing the newbie should be only taking the cons towards the riffle section ,less chance of gold loss , and then when a spoonful or a little more is there ,then teach them the tap and backwash method of final cleaning ! I'm sorry but I must say YouTube gurus are in some cases just trying to push their product and in so doing try to convince the newbie they have just reinvented the wheel !  Other tubes are pushed for the money they collect for the poster ! As you can see im not a fan of YouTube vids! Just me, but some people just love them  and that's fine for them but as I said not my cup of tea !

OK ... I know all of you guys have been doing this for quite some time. There's at least a couple of you whom I would consider "knowledgeable" and are certainly experienced and practised enough to be teaching others.

I would not put myself into that category, because I regularly learn new techniques, or just glean small things that I wouldn't have thought of unless I spotted it in a video, or read about it here on the forum. Even in the previously recommended video I made several new "little discoveries".

It was my intention to offer a link to this video because I thought other "newbies" might be interested in these "little discoveries".

You guys all know about this stuff ... understood! Very Happy  But if one new chum finds one little gem within this video, then I've helped that person.

I'd like to thank Ark and whiskers, though never met either, they changed my panning technique for the better for ever  cheers 

Like Ark said Laughing  learn to move the material towards the riffles, and then over the riffles without losing any gold,
object achieved when you can reduce the contents to black sand and a small percentage of heavy blonds "and gold, derr"
Learn that step and learn it well!
Then learn how to and perfect the backwash method, no other method comes close to the results achieved using the backwash technique  cheers 

Like I said it's november already Razz

P.s, I'm off to the dunny Q41

Yeah Kate as fencejumper says keep putting up the Gold Hog stuff ! I feel it just confuses the newbie that's all !
Do you pan like that ? Was it the way you were shown ? Have you read the panning posts in here ? And always remember we have in most states a clay problem on the gold fields not so in America . We had one of the best minds of prospecting from America in here as a member and believe me his loss to this forum was a tragedy! But he was one to admit that he was amazed at the difference in the way we approached our prospecting in the two countries and the difference was in his opinion the make up of our gold rivers .

Some of the best posts in this forum on panning are from Whiskers ! If those who want to learn how to pan read and re read those they will have the best idea of how to attack a bit of panning ,whether it be a family day or someone trying to learn for their betterment in the art ! Why you say am I pointing this out ? Because I'm tired of people I meet on the creek  coming over to where I'm panning and telling me " your doing it all wrong" Sigh!
Am I is my usual reply " oh yes I've seen it on YouTube " ect.ect. 5 min gurus lol!

just to be clear I was not suggesting that guy's way of panning was right or wrong.

I was reffering to seeing more of kates post's with her goldhog gear she's been using.
cheers
