  1. Hello I just went to the GoldenSpearmine.com website and the panning sample bag they have is sold out. I love to pan paydirt bit not to keen on the concentrate bags. I love unsearched paydirt. What paydirt do you like the most?

    • Yeah those Australian sellers don’t stock a lot of paydirt. He does restock frequently so just have to keep checking back. As to an unsearched bag, my favorite used to be Carolina paydirt, but sadly they went out of business. So currently still looking for a new favorite. If you find one let me know!
