BIG JOHN 14″ GOLD PANNING CLASSIFIER – 12MM MESH
The BIG John 14″ Gold Panning Classifier is an essential part of any gold prospectors kit as it improves gold recovery and efficiency.
Classifying is the first step in the gold panning process. The BIG John 14″ Gold Panning Classifier with 12mm mesh separates by size, larger unwanted stones, rocks, and debris, leaving behind paydirt suitable for panning, helping improve gold recovery and efficiency.
The 12mm classifier can be placed over a BIG John Gold Pan or a bucket to catch the debris which in turn can be inspected for larger gold nuggets.
- Classifier mesh is 12mm, ideal for screening out larger stones and debris
- Proven design to maximise gold recovery and increase efficiency
- A hole in the edge of the pan to hang or tie it up
- Durable, lightweight PE plastic, does not rust or erode
Africa has a rich history of gold mining and many informal artisanal, and small scale miners still rely on gold panning to recover gold to make a living. For hobbyists, there are many streams and rivers in South Africa and Africa that bear fine gold and gold panning is ideal for extracting the gold.
Gold panning is the process gold prospectors use to recover gold from streams and rivers. Water is used to separate heavy gold particles from lighter sediment by swirling a gold pan containing water and paydirt in a circular motion. Denser gold particles remain at the bottom of the pan as lighter sediment and water is ejected out of the pan. Repeating this process a few times the remaining gold will start to show at the bottom of the pan at which time the miner can recover the gold.
If you are a gold prospector, gold miner, artisanal gold miner or hobbyist looking to try your hand at gold panning, then we highly recommend the BIG John range of Gold Pans designed for gold mining in Africa.
