Competition Gold Panning Tips

A basic explanation of the competition panning is simple and short. It will be followed by an extensive explanation of some of the different variables that come into play with this type of pan. If you can get pretty hard with this type of pan, pan your general will also improve.

The sand and gold are placed in a saucepan. Shake the gold at the bottom. Pan on the sand. View or take the gold. Place in a bottle if necessary.

In all competitions, the constants that you will be dealing with some type of sand, gold, a pot of gold and water. Gold will be placed in the sand under the rules of competition. The gold and sand can be placed in the tray for you or in a bucket and you put the gold and sand in the pan. From there, you put the flat plate in water and shake the pan so that the gold deposits at the bottom, being careful to keep the pan flat. WITH a flat pan, begin to wash the sand from the pot. If you use more gold than you can wash aggressive enough. If you use smaller gold, you should be more careful and pay more often. Tip the pan carefully as you lose material. If speed of travel, I tell competitors to wash twice more after seeing the gold that all the sand is at the top of the pan when you see the gold medal for the first time and fall on gold and cover it. All competitions require that a judge be able to see gold at some point in the fishing competition without it.

Bases apply to gold mining pan style competition, with some refinements. As in all the scenic, the first thing a panner competition should do is set the gold at the bottom. It sounds too simple, but most people do not loosen the material into the mold and enough gold is removed from the pan at first. There are many variations from here, but the one we teach that works for everyone is to keep the flat pan under water and stir just send gold down. Depending on the type of competition you are and the type of pan you use, you shake side to side or spin half round, like a batea. Experience tell you how long to do this. Then you'll start turning the equipment off. The type of competition, once again, will determine how quickly you do this. If your competitors with big gold, you can rotate the sand off fairly quickly. If you use smaller gold, you will need to take a little longer and set more than once. The type of stove and water conditions with whom you work will also identify many factors to how fast you can get rid of the sand. When using more gold, a spin-off on the sand with more motions in an oval shape, allowing water to enter from one side of the pan and bring the sand on the other side. When you are swarming sand with more gold than you can use centrifugal force to your advantage, but be careful not to over centrifuge or gold will follow the water in the pan. WATCH THE ANGLE OF THE PAN. Keep the gold trapped in the bottom of the fold. Most of this action is done with a flat pan, tip in the end, just enough to remove the sand, and slowing down the motion. Two smears at the end, when you see gold, to remove the sand just to see gold at the finish. From there you should be able to demonstrate your gold to a judge or easily remove from the pan to be placed in a vial. One last thing, keep the pan under the water while you are panning. Water is your friend.

When panning with smaller gold panning general instructions apply, but most miners do their best to mold and to flatter. A flatter pan, it is harder for the gold medal on vault and out of the pan. This does not mean he can not if you have not paid enough, just that it is more difficult and you should be able to pan faster.

There are many gold panning competitions across the country each year, and each has its' own rules. Some offer pans to you, others let you use your own. Some use large gold , glitter, and some of them may be very small. The amount of sand that you must treat varies as well. A competition uses about 1 and a half gallons of material and small pieces of gold. A very tough competition! The site will try to follow them, and we have a link to a site that tries to maintain a schedule of all competitions held each year. Good luck with your panoramic Come join us for fun.
