Learn: 'Panning Basics'
Panning is fundamental to gold prospecting. It doesn't matter how big or complex a processing system you have - it will always start and finish with a gold pan. While it's true that there are as many ways, techniques and opinions on the ‘best’ panning method as there are prospectors, essentially all methods of panning boil down to attempting to agitating the material enough to let the gold settle on the bottomof your pan while slowly sluffing off the lighter material (hopefully, retaining the gold in the process).
Most importantly, remember that panning takes practice. Patience is key. Take your time.
If a picture is worth a thousand words - watching an instructional video on how to do something new is worth volumes. We have scoured the internet and found a couple of videos on simple yet solid panning techniques that should really help get you started on the right foot.
A bit more advanced demonstration of a backwash and tap finish panning method is demonstrated.
