The Best Place to look for gold is...

Gold prospecting is a lot like looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack…it is extremely rare and without a knowledge of what to look for and where to look, it is almost impossible to find.

080815 Gold 300x195 Where to Find Gold...

5 Yards of paydirt processed using 8 labor hours, 4 gallons of gas, blood sweat and tears…but in the end Eureka!

 That’s where the axiom comes into play, the best place to look for gold is where it has already been found

Maybe that’s why there is such a rush of excitement when we do find gold in the pan, because it is so rare.

But who has time and resources necessary to spend pursuing the Mother Lode?

 In 1848, the first prospectors to arrive in California from Mexico, and South America had easy pickings.

According to a PBS documentary, a little scraping in the dirt in the right spot without hardly any tools at all could produce pounds of gold!

 As more and more prospectors scoured the landscape, gold became more and more difficult to find.

Eventually all the easy gold was gone. But the fact is, even in those same locations, gold can still be found…it’s just smaller in most cases.

 You hear talk of “gold dust” all the time, but at $18/ounce, it was hardly worth the effort to keep working a claim that only yielded gold dust or what today we call “flour gold”.

 With advances in technology however, processes were discovered that enabled the recovery of gold so small as to be invisible to the naked eye.

In fact, one of the largest gold mines in the U.S., the Carlin Trend, has produced over 50,000,000 ounces of gold…most of which is microscopic in size.

The 49’ers couldn’t recover gold that small, not did they have any interest in doing so at $18/oz.

 Things are different today. With gold hovering around $1250/oz, even old mines are being re-opened (Haile Gold Mine in Kershaw, SC).

Fortunately for those of us who love the rush of seeing gold in the pan, we can still have our own Eureka moment without having to move to Alaska or the Yukon and investing massive amounts of money to set up our own operation. That’s where the purchase of gold paydirt comes in.

 For a fraction of the cost, we can have the excitement of seeing gold in the pan in the comfort of our own homes.

With a minimum investment in a gold pan, a tub, and a snuffer bottle, one can get started.

 Here at iPan4gold, it is our desire to see others discover the fun and excitement of seeing gold in the pan for the first time…there’s nothing like it.

  • A disclaimer, we have never advertised our business as a gold investment strategy.
    We sell gold paydirt as a means of enabling people to participate in the process of panning for gold as a hobby, not as an investment strategy.
    There are much better ways to invest in gold, but none of them offer gold at an instant profit. In fact premiums on gold bullion range from around 2% for 1 kilo bars to over 30% for 1 gram bars.
    To reiterate, we do not sell gold, we sell the fun and excitement of FINDING gold in a gold pan through the gold panning process. That’s all we do. Read our BLOG articles and you will see how many times we tell people that buying gold paydirt is not an investment strategy. We sell people the opportunity to pan for gold…that’s all. The fact that they end up with some gold is a bonus, a secondary benefit. Gold panning, in our little world, Is just a hobby, and unlike most hobbies, you end up with something that has actual value instead of just nice memories and sore muscles.
    I say again “Buying gold paydirt is not a gold investment strategy.”
    That’s what bullion bars, coins, and rounds are for, not raw gold.
    While raw gold could grow to be worth more than what it was purchased for, it is a long-term investment at best.
    Gold bullion is pure gold, placer gold is NEVER pure.
    We want to sell gold paydirt to fellow enthusiasts who have gold fever, that is they love seeing gold reveal itself in a gold pan. You can always tell when someone has gold fever or not…Those who don’t always ask “how much is that gold worth?” when you show them the gold you have recovered. Those who do have gold fever want to know where you found it and if they can go with you next time.
    What’s in your pan? I hope it’s iPan4Gold.com!

  • I invested around $10,000 in purchasing gold from many legit companies, and no complaints from the B.B.B. Anyhow what iam trying to say is my experience with buying gold from these companies, you will always lose the gain you are looking for. I find it’s not a good investment. You will lose in buying gold from paydirt companies. I doubt you readers will never see my words. It’s the truth.

  • Sounds great… While Ive become OK at panning at home, I need to get into the wild.. My quest is to find a new spot. According to the geologists I have met, there is Gold! Lots of gold. People just have not found the new places yet. There are deposits to find. Pinpointing it is the hard part for newcomers, because we are ignorant of what to look for. So I too like to hear that new locations are being found.
