Gold panning

Gold panning is the process of extracting gold from placer deposits. For gold seekers, prospectors and miners this technique is one of the cheapest and simplest methods to get the gold out of the ground. The goal of this panning process is to separate the gold from the sand and gravel mixture of the river bed material. This technique was also used in several of the big gold rushes in North America (e.g. Klondike).


The OKM Gold Labor Au 79 is a supportive and handy tool for gold seekers, miners and prospectors to determine the gold content of placers and minerals. In some easy steps you fill in your sample, start your measurement and read the results. You simply follow the instructions on the detector's screen and at the end you know how many grams per tonne of gold your sample consists of. This gives a good indication whether the place is worth for gold panning or not.


This video gives a short introduction for the gold detector Gold Labor Au 79, which is used to determine the gold content of a soil sample.
