This is actually my 2nd purchase from Ryan8246, as the 1st one arrived partially opened and about half full. I did pan it and recover about 40% ROI based on cost of half the original price (lost half the dirt). So purchased another from seller at reduced price and was very happy. As you can see from the ROI stats I found a .2 gram picker right off the bat so kids made me stop panning so they could play with it. Then recovered all the rest in 2nd and 3rd pass while kids played with picker.The only slight problem I had with Ryan’s Bearded dirt was it was slightly wet, and when paying by the weight would prefer not to be paying for water. However will overlook that for an over 50% ROI.
Ryan8246 ended with a 7.5 out of 10! While the ROI was low, the customer service certainly made up for it. Was a decent bag of paydirt just had a lot of little issues to lower the score just a little each time.

This review is my opinion and my results may vary from your results. My bag may have been a bad batch or a great batch, remember no two bags of paydirt are ever the same. So please use common sense when buying paydirt from any seller. Oh and good luck and happy panning!
