Sadly it seems CarolinaPaydirt.com has closed it’s doors. Hopefully they come back as they had a good product.
Well after a short break here is my most recent review.
I originally wanted to just buy the picker and concentrate bag they offered for sale but I love deals and the “Combo Box” seemed like a great deal. The Combo Box costs $94.99 but if you purchased each bag individually it would cost $134.98 so you save $39.99 or basically get the 10lb bag for $10.00.
Originally I had decided to review each bag separately based on the advertised prices on CarolinaPayDirt.com, however I soon realized that the ROI for the “Combo Box” was very good and deserved its own review so here it is…..
First thing that you will notice when panning this Pay Dirt is it is super dirty, and will turn your water a nice shade of brown in seconds. Then you will start finding the gold. I ended up finding 1.49 grams of gold out of the combo box with a net ROI of 63.20% which is pretty good. However if bought separately the ROI were not that great. If purchased separately the 10lb unsearched would have been 40.30%, the 3lb Picker 45.40% and 49.72% for the 8oz concentrates. So individually maybe not so great of a deal but as a package deal this is a good buy and will buy again.
CarolinaPaydirt.com’s Combo Box ended with a total score of 9.1 out of 10 which is a good score. While the ROI wasn’t the highest, the fun factor really made this combo boxes score go up. Overall a great product and well worth a try.

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!
