Common Myths About Gold Paydirt

Paydirt is a great investment

Over time, probably, but…while the value of the gold in your paydirt shipments can appreciate over time, there are more fiscally-sound ways to invest in the gold market. I’m looking for thrill-seekers more than wealth-chasers. However, I can’t say paydirt is a bad investment, after all, you never know what you’ll find.

Paydirt is a total gamble

Real prospecting is a gamble, but when you buy paydirt from IPan4Gold, it won’t be a shot in the dark – there are no “dry holes” with iPan4Gold. You can enjoy the discovery of genuine gold without worrying that you’ll turn up empty handed. Our paydirt is guaranteed to have value.

Paydirt is a scam

It can be, but not at iPan4Gold. You might find “paydirt” offered for sale online that’s just backyard dirt containing little or no gold. You will find all kinds of creative offers to separate you from your money including raffles and offers “too good to be true.” Congratulations, now that you’re here, there’s no reason to go looking for trouble like that. Our products are real, consistent, and your satisfaction is guaranteed.

ABOUT OUR PAYDIRT

Our paydirt is better than the real thing! However, you should understand:

1. Our paydirt is a blend of material taken directly from the gold fields of Alaska and the North Georgia Mountains. This gives you the ability to pan material that is different, challenging, and contains some native gold from each of these areas. 

2. Our paydirt can be dusty, because is has been dried. It will also make your water muddy. This is because most of it has not been washed through a trommel or highbanker. You will therefore find pine needles, seashells, and other items native to the area from which it was mined and stockpiled - just like a real gold mine. 

3. The crushed quartz rock from Georgia contains very little black sand. The material from Alaska is almost exclusively black sand, but with little or no magnetite.

3. Natural unsearched gold paydirt on average contains less than 2 grams per ton of material. Therefore, in order to offer both value and a memorable Eureka! moment to the panning experience, we add gold from Alaska, Colorado, Australia, and parts unknown. 

4. Every paydirt shipment is a CUSTOM MADE order just for you. There is no assembly staff or machines involved in putting together your shipment. It is made just for YOU. Therefore you won't find any GTIN, UPC, or other barcodes on it.

4. Send me your questions and I'll do my best to answer. thx mdv@ipan4gold.com

Gold Paydirt and Nuggets for Sale

Gold can be found almost anywhere. But you won’t necessarily find enough to make the creation of a gold mine profitable. Placer gold, or gold that has been freed from its host rock through naturally occurring geological processes can be recovered through simply using a gold pan and following standard gold panning processes and procedures. In this method, you focus your efforts on the physical characteristics of gold - that is, gold is approximately 19 times heavier than water. So creating a slurry by immersing gold bearing soil and rock gives the gold a chance to sink to the bottom of the water column. When this is done, the heavier materials including gold will sink to the bottom and the lighter, waste material, called tailings, will rise to the top. Then it is simply a matter of washing the layers of lighter material out of your gold pan until only the “heavies” remain. This is where you will find gold...if there is any. While gold does exist over a large area on the surface of the earth, the majority of it is smaller than can be discerned by the human eye. That’s one reason gold is so rare, because it is virtually impossible to recover gold in a gold pan when it is so small as to be invisible to the naked eye.

Gold Nugget

Gold nuggets are very rare and hence carry a premium over the “spot price” of gold. Nowadays most of the largest gold nuggets recovered are found through metal detecting. Nuggets can also be recovered by placer mining. There is no greater thrill than finding a gold nugget in a gold pan. Nuggets can also be found in the tailings piles left over from earlier gold mining operations.

Gold Nugget for Sale

Gold nuggets generally sell for a premium over spot gold cost since they are so rare. Unless a gold nugget is purchased by a collector, it will most likely be melted and refined to make .9999 fine gold, commonly referred to as “pure gold.” Refined gold is most often poured into bullion bars of varying weights, or maintained into bullion coins.

Placer Gold Price

Placer gold, gold freed from the host rock deep underground and brought to the surface. River and streams are the most common source of placer gold as the process of erosion cuts deeper into the surface of the eart, thus exposing placer gold deposits. Placer gold is prized by may who are captivated by the almost surreal experience of finding gold in a gold pan. Hence the term “Eureka” (I found it!) has come to be the catchphrase most exclaimed by gold prospectors the world over.
