Where to buy Gold Nuggets :

A few months ago, when gold was close to $1,200 per Troy Oz,  I decided to buy a single gold nugget and found that  offered the best prices at the time.

This is a 1 Gram Gold Nugget for $ 50. The prices are lower now....

This beautiful nugget resembles the head of a Lion or a Dragon and is one of my nicest to date.

Check out for great prices on Gold Paydirt  and some of the most incredible gold nuggets you will find on this planet !

They also have these stunning Gold/Quartz specimens for as little as $40/gram....

This is a Yukon Gold Nugget 2.00 Grams = $80

Better Paydirt, bigger nuggets, best prices

National Geographic Rock Tumbler $ 45

We actually picked up this little National Geographic Rock Tumbler as a trade for an old iPhone Speaker at a Neighbourhood Garage Sale.

It comes with several oz of rough semi Precious stones including green, yellow, red jasper and others. We'll post results and video below.

We have been tumbling for the past 2 days and already the rocks are very smooth and brilliant.

Great for 2 young rock hounds !

We will try to pick up some low grade opals to try next. Some very good Semi Precious gem groups on Facebook.

Felix Paydirt Free Sample + $2 Shipping

This arrived in the mail today !
Felix Paydirt's Gourmet Gold  Free Sample  + $ 2 Shipping.
We'll open it up and pan over the weekend, and posts results and Video  here ....

I've been told we'll get at least 4 or 5 small flakes of Gold ! You can get your own Free Sample here :

And these are the results:

Three nice sized pickers. Klinkers ... they go "clink" in the pan.

I'd say about $2 worth of gold. So we know that Felix has good gold in their Gourmet gold.

The Paydirt also came with a coupon to save $10 off our 1st order of Paydirt.... so we will have to give this some serious consideration.

Excellent promotional Package !

And, here is the video of us panning the gold. We could see all three pieces in the 1st 1st minute.

How to Calibrate then test your Digital Scale.

OK, so I found this super great awesome Digital Scale on that can weigh my fine gold, flakes and nuggets for only $9.29, but I forgot to buy the 100 gram weight  ($3.42) to calibrate.

In the mean time I was able to use some 1 Troy OZ Silver Maple Leafs (3 Maple Leafs + 1 Cdn quarter and 1 Cdn penny) as weight to add up to 100.06 grams. After Calibrating, using the instructions on the lid of my super, great, awesome Digital Scale I then checked several coins just to make sure I was getting good readings. And indeed I am.

Check these out:

US Dime = 2.26 g                                  Cdn Dime = 1.74 g             Cdn quarter = 4.44g

Now, I should be able to determine if that tiny flake of gold is .25 of a gram or not !

  • Awesome TARE function to determine the net weight of any product by subtracting the weight of your vial.
  •  Easy touch buttons, large size digits, and stark contrast LCD blue backlight display, make the measurements easy to read. The scale's platform measures 2.5 x 3.0 inches.
  • Measurements - Includes all the necessary unit measurements for easy weight translations: gram, ounces, grain, and carat. Set the scale to your desired measurements by pressing the MODE button
  • Accuracy - Weighs a capacity of 100g in increments of 0.01g. Manufactured with high precision sensors to ensure accurate weight readings. 

Notes on Canadian Coins: 

Each Canadian coin in circulation weighs differently based on size and content. According to the Canadian Numismatic Publishing Institute, there are nine coins in circulation. Each coin has different dimensions and is composed of different metals, making each unique.

The nine coins, their weights in grams and their compositions are:
  • One cent, 2.35 grams, 0.94 steel 0.015 nickel 0.045 copper plating
  • Five cents, 3.95 grams, 0.945 steel 0.035 copper 0.02 nickel plating
  • Ten cents, 1.75 grams, 0.92 steel 0.055 copper 0.025 nickel plating
  • Twenty-five cents, 4.4 grams, 0.94 steel 0.038 copper 0.022 nickel plating
  • Fifty cents, 6.9 grams, 0.9315 steel 0.0475 copper 0.021 nickel plating
  • One dollar, 7.0 grams, 0.915 nickel 0.085 bronze plating
  • Two dollars, 7.3 grams, 0.69 nickel 0.29 copper 0.02 aluminum
  • Five dollars, 8.36 grams, 0.900 gold 0.100 copper
  • Ten dollars, 16.72 grams, 0.900 gold 0.100 copper
On May 4, 2012, Canada minted its last penny. In early 2013, the Royal Canadian Mint began to collect and recycle them because the cost to mint one penny was 1.6 cents.

This arrived yesterday: Paydirt.  $ 40 US with Free Shipping.

My son and I have been panning this Paydirt for a few weeks now... I realize that we went too quickly at 1st since we are still finding fine gold dust after panning the 3rd time.

So far we are up to 1/2 gram of gold with a lot more fines and flour gold to pan out.

This is why we buy Paydirt in Canada, in March !

Believe me, there is nothing I'd love more than to be out on a Claim prospecting for Gold, but here in Northern Canada we still have a month or more before the snow melts and the earth begins to thaw. So to keep the Gold Fever in check and to ease the Cabin Fever we buy a little Paydirt, pan it in our kitchens and find a smidge of gold that we store in little glass jars.  Stay tuned there are more Paydirt Reviews on the way ....  In Canada, in the month of March, the Dirt is in the Mail !

Snowed Inn - Panning for Gold in Canada, in the month of March !

Can you believe they are still calling for Major Snow Storms on the North East, US and Canada ? It is almost the middle of March !!! What is a Prospector to do ? OK, we dig out the sled, build a  fire next to the criek and melt the earth; we chisel away with a pick axe until a few grains of sand begin the break apart. We haul the bits of frozen earth back to the cabin where we have a sled with hot water..... we melt the bits of ice from the stream and we pan for gold. Then we go drink inside, drink  hot chocolate and warm up to go back out.

Yuba River Gold Panning Paydirt $9.99

This one gets a 5 star review on Amazon:

1/4 Pound of Yuba River Gold Panning Paydirt for $9.99

•Natural Paydirt Concentrates
•Guaranteed to have GOLD!
•From the Yuba River in California
•Contains mainly fine gold and small flakes!
•Some of this paydirt may have pickers or small nuggets!

Product Description: If you enjoy prospecting this is the paydirt for you! This paydirt will contain flour gold, fine gold, flakes, and maybe even pickers or small nuggets. These paydirt concentrates contain high amounts of black sands! Each bag is also screened down to a quarter inch which classifies out the larger rocks, so you only get high quality concentrates while still getting the chance to get any nuggets! Since this is river paydirt, it may be slightly damp or wet when you receive it. You will be taken on a prospecting journey to the Yuba river in California when you pan this bag of concentrates out. I want you to imagine a hard days work of prospecting on a remote creek and panning your concentrates out to feel the joy and excitement of seeing color in the bottom of your pan. There is no better feeling than the anticipation of slowly taking your time to reveal gold under layers of black sand! The weight of paydirt in each bag is a 1/4 pound or 4 ounces. This is meant for recreation and has no guarantees on the amount of gold in each bag but we do guarantee at least a bit in every bag. Tips for panning: First, I recommend panning just spoonfuls at a time, just one bag may take over an hour to pan, depending on your skill level. As with any concentrates, pan over a catch basin so you can re-pan for any gold you may have missed. It is pretty easy to let the smaller gold fall out with some of the black sands. If you have never panned before feel free to ask me any questions! Please note we offer the same paydirt in larger sizes!
