Mikes Gold Paydirt 3lb Bag Review

The Review of Mikes Gold Paydirt 3lb Bag:

So after my last Mikes Gold Paydirt review I decided to try and go bigger to see if my results would be the same, better or worse. I decided to go with the 3 lb bag this time around to see what I could find. Again before getting too deep into this review I will caution anyone who wants to purchase Mikes Gold Paydirt to only do so on Amazon and not his website. He has had major issues with not shipping out paydirt and has since removed all contact information off of his website which is not a good sign. So I would only suggest this paydirt if ordered off amazon, which is where I bought this bag.

I will point out as well, how good the reviews for Mikes Gold Paydirt 3 lb bag are on amazon. It is currently at 4 stars with a 66% rate fo 5 stars. This is amazing for paydirt, since most people who buy it off amazon are doing so as gifts, and they might not be for people who know how to pan out the gold. I did notice though that the reviews are either really good or really bad, with 2/3rds being good. So it seems the amount of gold in each bag isn’t the same, some seem to have enough to get 5 stars. While other bags seem to be short and warrant 1 or 2 stars.

This is a large amount of paydirt and again it is really dirty stuff. So plan on either changing your water a few times or using a poor off pan to keep your water as clean as possible. Being so dirty it makes it a little challenging to pan out. The good news though is, the Mikes Gold Paydirt has very little in the way of black sands. This makes it much easier for the gold to sink to the bottom of your pan.

Most of the paydirt was in the -30 classification, but most of the gold I found was in the +30 range. This made for a long tedious job of panning out dirty -30 material for very little reward. Much like the 4oz bag I reviewed earlier, I think this is one of those bags where you are probably better off not classifying it down. Instead I would just take a cup full at a time and pan it out.

Overall it was a really fun bag of paydirt, and it really surprised me with how much gold was in it. Even though the -30 material didn’t have much gold, it had enough to keep the fun going. So in the end I had a good time, found a lot of gold and was glad I made the buy.

Mikes Gold Paydirt 4oz bag ended with a score of 9.3 out of 10. A great and really surprising score. I found way more gold then I ever thought I would but not complaining. I would and do plan on trying out more of this sellers amazon paydirt. Only a few minor dings kept this from scoring much higher..

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!
