LynchMining 1lb Original Paydirt Review #2

The Review of LynchMining Original Paydirt:

I had hoped the start of GoldPalooza would start off with a bang with LynchMining Original Paydirt. Sadly, it ended up really just being a bust! While it did have it’s moments of fun, overall I was really disappointed in this paydirt. It was a roller coaster of emotions that ended on a very low note.

It started on a bad note when the bag came in light, not by much, just an ounce, but I hate light bags. The LynchMining Original Paydirt weighed in at 14.9 ounces, so 1.1 oz short. It wasn’t a big shortage but it still just irks me when simple things like weights are ignored.

After getting over the weight issue the fun factor really kicked in. I had a great time panning out the -10/+20 and -20/+30 material. I even found a lot of gold in each pan so I was constantly being rewarded for my efforts. It was honestly really fun to pan it all out. The paydirt was clean and the gold was bright. Making it a fun and easy panning session.

Then I got to the -30 paydirt and it all came crashing down. Tablespoon after tablespoon of paydirt went through my pan and I found no gold. With the vast majority of the¬†LynchMining Original Paydirt being in the under 30 range (about half of it) this was a huge let down. What made it even worse was I had to repan it multiple times because I couldn’t believe it would have no gold in it. In the end I found zero gold in the -30 and was extremely disappointing.

One of the reason this bag of paydirt scored so low was the shipping. Currently LynchMining has a 1-7 day handling time, plus the 1-3 days it takes for USPS to deliver. So shipping can be as quick as 2 days but as long as 10 and to me that is unacceptable. I will also point out that 90% of the complaints I hear about LynchMining is shipping that takes even longer than those listed lengthy time frames.

Another issue I had was the huge discrepancy between the amount of gold found in each classification. If a bag of paydirt is only going to have chunky +30 gold in it, then the vast majority of the paydirt should be in the +30 range as well. That was the exact opposite for this bag, about half of the paydirt was -30 but all of the gold was +30.

The one good thing I can say about the LynchMining Original Paydirt is how consistent it appears to be. You can see by my 1st review of it, I had almost the exact same amounts of paydirt and gold recovered. If the issues with the shipping and paydirt classifications were fixed it might be a great bag for beginners.

LynchMinings 1lb Original Paydirt bag ended with a score of 6.7 out of 10. This makes it the lowest scoring bag of paydirt from LynchMining I have reviewed to date. The paydirt wasn’t horrible, but with a really bad shipping policy, disproportionate classified paydirt and just a so so ROI it had no way to score high.

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!
