Discover gold the easy way with the Minelab PRO-GOLD range of high quality pans and accessories. Prospecting for gold has never been so much fun!
The PRO-GOLD features two premium quality pans and a versatile classifier. They’re constructed from durable lightweight polypropylene, are UV-resistant and float in water.
Multiple Panning Zones for Maximum Gold Recovery
It’s like having three gold pans in one! There is a standard smooth sidewall, PLUS coarse and fine sidewall riffles (15-inch pan) to catch all sizes of alluvial gold particles efficiently so you don’t miss any. The coarse riffles easily trap the larger gold nuggets to help you quickly discard unwanted gravel, whilst the fine riffles capture the tiny gold specks – this can add up to big gold fast!
Large 90° Riffles
Large 90° riffles on the 15-inch and 10-inch pans catch larger gold grains before they wash away. This is a good initial step to separate the black sand and gold from lighter colored sediments.
Mini riffles on the 15-inch pan assist in trapping very tiny gold in fine black sand, allowing the sand to wash away leaving the gold behind.
Final panning can be carried out on the flat sidewall, allowing you to clearly see the gold that collects in the bottom corner as it becomes separated from the remaining black sand.
High Contrast Blue for Optimum Gold Visibility
Opposing points on the color wheel have high color contrast. In the diagram, yellow (A) and blue (B) have high contrast.
This is why a blue pan will help you to see gold more easily than all other colors. Black may seem like a good choice, but it will camouflage the black sand that is commonly found with alluvial gold.
Adjacent colors on the color wheel have low contrast, so orange or green would not be a good choice of color for gold visibility.
Low contrast combinations
Green and yellow are from the light half of the wheel and do not reveal gold nuggets easily.
High contrast combinations
Red and blue are both ‘dark’ colors, giving maximum contrast to make gold nuggets highly visible.
Compact Nested Design
PRO-GOLD pans are constructed from high quality materials and have been cleverly designed to fit neatly inside each other for super-easy transport and space-saving storage.
Ergonomic & Practical
The classifier is sized perfectly to fit on top of a standard 5 gal. (20 L) bucket, and the two handles make it comfortable to use.
