Our Professional Series gold pan is, without a doubt, one of the most popular gold pans ever produced. These pans incorporate the best features required in an effective and user friendly design. They feature our unique, undercut, riffles and the riffled portion covers nearly 40% of the pans side. Experienced panners will appreciate our large flat bottoms. There are no grooves or gimmick traps in these pans. Manufactured to be extra thick from durable plastic, and finished with just the right texture, to help grab the fine gold. Available in three most appropriate color choices for contrast: green, blue, and black. Made in the USA, these pans are offered in 14 and 17 diameters.
The sluice box is an absolute must for the beginner. It is a simple, yet effective, tool which allows the operator to process a great deal more material than would ever be possible by simply using a gold pan. Our Proline sluice boxes are built with the same quality as found in our powered equipment. We use only the highest quality aluminum and all steel parts are plated for corrosion resistance. Ribbed matting is installed at the front of the sluice and aids in quick inspection for gold.
Perhaps the most unique feature found on our sluices is that the expanded wire is inset onto the bottom of the riffles, and is welded in place, making cleanup much easier. These sluices are available in small, medium and large. The medium and large are equipped with large handles for easy transporting.
Sieves have many uses in mining. It is easier to extract gold from similar sized particle sizes. Separation by gravity with the help of water is accomplished easier with sorting sieves where the material is graded into different sizes.

What is a placer mining claim? The offical definition is "all forms or deposit, except veins of quartz, or other rock in-place." In other words, any deposit not located in a lode deposit. It is a piece of publicly accessible federal land that is open for mineral entry and claiming. Filing a mining claim with the Bureau of Land Management gives you the right to extract the minerals on the claim, but does not give you exclusive rights to the property itself. In the Lower 48, the maximum size of a mining claim is 20 acres per person.
Remember that federal, state or local guidelines and regulations may differ from location to location, so be aware of the rules before you prospect anywhere. There's still plenty of gold to be found (U.S. Geological Surveys estimate that 33,000 metric tons-- nearly 1.2 billion ounces-- await discovery, mostly in the western USA), so get out there and get your share!
DID YOU KNOW? The market price of gold is based on 1 troy ounce of pure gold. In every ounce, there is 480 grains, 20 pennyweight or 31.104 grams. Since gold has gotten so valuable, it has become necessary to weigh it down to a fraction of a grain. Every grain counts and every grain is valuable, so before you go to sell your gold, weigh it carefully on a sensitive digital scale that can register to at least one-tenth of a gram.
The spot price of gold is the official price of gold at any given moment and can vary between different sources of data. The most common quoted spot price comes from the London P.M. or afternoon fix gold spot price, actually set during the morning hours in the United States, around 9:00 am Eastern Standard Time. The London PM fix, of all the gold spot prices, is the price at which the world's largest size gold purchases and sales are accomplished on any given day. This is the one price of gold in US dollars which is quoted daily, and familiarly, around the world. During the U.S. trading day, the spot price is usually based on the latest Comex spot gold price. This is a constantly changing price from the New York markets, and trading goes on until about 2:00 p.n. Eastern time.
Chunky nuggets, gleaming flakes, fine flour gold... all forms of the shiny stuff have been valued since the dawn of time as a store of wealth, and gold continues to be the most solid medium of exchange in the world. No matter the size or type, or whether you find it in a stream or out in the desert, gold is the noblest of metals and having the right gold mining equipment makes recovery easier, more profitable, and lots more fun!
Luckily for all of us, modern-day prospectors and manufacturers are constantly inventing new and innovative equipment and supplies to make gold recovery much easier than it was during the Gold Rush days of the '49ers!

Making a complete list of gold mining equipment starts with defining the type of gold mining you are doing and the budget you have at your disposal. The type of mining relates to hard rock,eluvial, or placer; alluvial deposits. The capital budget you have to invest in buying your equipment with dictate the scale at which you want to mine and influence the long-term operating costs of your mining operation.
Since most of the information online provides lists of gold mining equipment for amateur level mining with equipment like: gold pans, metal detectors, mini sluice box, blue bowl, geologist rock pick, soil scoop, hand screens/classifiers. The items listed just now fall closer to gold prospecting tools and equipment than actual mining.
I will present here what I consider are major equipment lists for 3 types of mining operations. Remember now, a metallurgist is writing. This will not be flawless and since my speciality is process equipment, that is mostly what will be discussed.
Some amateur level gold prospecting equipment such as metal detectors are often classified as mining equipment by small miners/prospectors operating as a hobby. These items include but are not limited to:
Minequips gold mining equipment is manufactured for commercial use in small to medium sized gold recovery operations, and our gold mining equipment is used successfully in production gold mines in New Zealand, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Bolivia, Ghana and Cameroon.

9/1/15 Amazon Order: Excellent digging tool for metal detecting, would rate this a 5 if it came with a nice nylon sheath to carry on your belt. I have dug in some pretty difficult ground and this knife does a great job of getting through route water as well as gravelly surfaces. Highly recommend the product only wish that I had a sheet to go with it. Digging Knife.
Sluice boxes are designed to take advantage of laws of gravity, while also considering the fact that gold is denser than other materials. Seen as an inexpensive piece of equipment for the active gold prospector, there are a number of options available to any individual who may be wishing to invest in this particular item. However, with a sluice box making it easier to know when you have hit paydirt, then checking out the various boxes and choosing the right one for your needs may prove to be the best investment of your time.
If you have ever watched a program such as Gold Rush, then you will have heard about sluice boxes. This may make you inadvertently believe that they will involve large pieces of equipment and an even larger bank balance, but thats not the case.
Instead, a sluice box can vary in size quite considerably. That being said, there are various components that you need to be aware of before you go ahead and invest in a brand new sluice box for gold prospecting.
The structure of a sluice box is simple and yet highly effective. The basic idea for gold sluice boxes is that it consists of a straight channel with slow spots at specific intervals. These slow spots are made by riffles, which then create a backflow of water. This, in turn, allows for any gold to drop and settle allowing you to extract the gold from the original material.
However, you need to consider the water flow. If there is too much water, the gold will be carried higher up in suspension, so it will effectively be swept away and not separated. If there is too little water, not only will the gold drop down too fast, but so will a lot of lighter material. This will block those slow spots, so if theres any gold it will end up being carried out of your sluice box with you being unable to extract it.
The same logic applies for any used sluice boxes for sale. The riffles could be damaged, so they will become blocked in a shorter time frame. Considering the potential for missing out on that gold, you might decide its worth buying a new, professionally made sluice box.
So far, we have mentioned water sluice boxes, but there is also the option of dry sluice boxes. This option uses air flow to effectively do the same thing as a water sluice box. If you are unable to hook up to a water supply, then this may be the best option for you.
At Kellyco, we stock a number of Keene sluice boxes ranging from hand-held to the Keene super sluice box designed for dealing with a larger volume of material. Of course, the best sluice box will be the one suited to your needs and, no matter what they may be, we would be happy to assist.
One option is to purchase a complete package. With this, you get everything from the sluice box itself to jets, the pump, the engine, and other items that will help you get started. This option comes in different sizes, while we also supply adjustable support legs to provide you with a stable platform to operate from. However, if this sounds overwhelming, then an item such as the Keene High Production Hand Sluice is also a great option. This has a wider design to increase the flow allowing you to pass through even more material in a shorter time frame.
The best sluice box to buy is undoubtedly dependent on how often you want to go gold prospecting and the amount of soil you plan on digging up. This is the kind of tool that will end up paying for itself, so if you are serious about this as a hobby, then investing in a gold sluice box with a powerful motor to drive it will be essential.
Buying a sluice box doesnt need to be stressful or confusing, but we here at Kellyco know that you may have a number of questions before making your purchase. If that is the case, then you can contact us via our customer care department where a member of our expert team of gold prospectors and detectorists will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Having the right gold prospecting equipment will change your entire approach to this fun hobby. With the right equipment, your chances of finding this precious metal is much greater than having the bare minimum. With several key items included in any gold panning kit, being aware of the best items to have within your budget will help ensure you have a successful gold prospecting hunt.
With a wide range of gold prospecting equipment for sale, you certainly dont want to be wasting money purchasing the wrong items. At Kellyco, we have you covered for every circumstance and any budget. As a result, there are a number of different items that we believe should form the basis of any treasure hunter kit.
This hobby doesnt need an individual to have a wide range of mining equipment. Instead, gold prospecting can be easily achieved on a small budget while still enjoying the exciting experience of gold panning.
Looking through the pages of gold prospecting equipment, you may feel confused as to what is worth spending your money on. However, we feel that there are some key items that should form the basis of any gold prospecting kits.
The exact items will depend on how serious you want to take gold prospecting. If you love the idea of dredging rivers or streams to see how much gold you can uncover, then we have the equipment that you will need to do just that. Also, if the idea of some gentle gold panning or metal detecting is more up your street, then we have you covered as well.
First, if you love the idea of covering rivers and streams to uncover any gold that may lie in the water or bed, then a dredger would be important. This item comes with a motor, sluice, classifier, and suction hose to bring up the material from the bottom and to then be sorted through.
At Kellyco, we stock each individual component that would be required to either establish your dredging kit or to replace items that may be tired or require updating. From a wide array of suction hoses to attach to your power jet, to a variety of engines with different HP, our team of gold prospecting experts will be able to advise you on the best equipment to purchase for your bounty hunting adventures.
Of course, for those who are beginners with gold prospecting there are more inexpensive ways to build your kit. A simple gold panning kit costs very little and yet it is a wonderful way for someone to be introduced to the joys of gold panning. But, if you want to invest some extra money, then there are several items that should be on any list.
First, you need to consider if you wish to use a water sluice or a drywasher. As the name suggests, a drywasher uses alternative methods in that it focuses on air to separate the gold from other debris. Also, having a range of classifying meshes to hand can help you quickly sort through debris and be left with pure gold at the end of it all.
Of course, you may be drawn to the idea of gold prospecting with a metal detector, and that is an area where we certainly excel. With several options available, we have several gold detectors and search coils from manufacturers such as Whites, Nokta Makro, and Fisher.
However, dont break your budget on a gold detector, there are several cheap gold detectors at great quality. With every type of gold detector, no matter the budget, you will be able to distinguish between rocks, debris, other metals, and the gold itself. It does most of the hard work for you allowing you to simply enjoy the act of uncovering the gold.
For those just starting out with gold prospecting, we also have a number of kits that can be used as a way of an introduction. From the Minelab gold panning kit complete with a riffle pan and classifier, to Garrett producing their own sets, some of the biggest names in the industry understand exactly what you need when searching for gold panning equipment.
We know that you may have a number of questions surrounding what to buy and whether or not certain items are worthy of the investment. If this sounds like you, then make life easier for yourself by giving us a call here at Kellyco. A member of our team of expert detectorists will be happy to advise you on the best items to purchase that will allow you to get started with gold prospecting.
