The Review of Washington Beach Mining 5oz Bag Paydirt:
I have been watching and wanting to review a bag of paydirt from Washington Beach Mining for a while now. When I originally added them to my long list of paydirts to buy they only had the regular Cape Disappointment. So when I saw they had added a new bag of paydirt and they had sample sizes I jumped all over it.
Customer service was astounding and they quickly answered my numerous questions. The shipping was also as fast and I received my paydirt in just a few days. With it being shipped out the day after I placed the order.
The Green River paydirt from Washington Beach Mining is supposed to have gold from +20 down to -100. I expected most of what I would find would be closer to the -100 range. So I was pleasantly surprised to find three really nice flakes of gold in the -10/+20 classification. I honestly thought this was going to turn out to be a really good bag of paydirt.
I even found more gold in the -20/+30 classification. Not a lot mind you, but enough to keep me happy and the belief alive. This was going to be a good bag of paydirt! Then I started panning out the -30 and found a lot of gold, most of it in the -100 range. This was turning out to be a really good bag of paydirt.
Then I pulled out the scale and ruined everything. What I though was a decent amount of gold turned out to be 0.032 grams or $1.30 worth of gold. WOW! That was really not what I was expecting. It really just sucked all the wind out of my sail, and ruined the whole experience.
In the end I did have an okay time panning out the Green River paydirt from Washington Beach Mining. As a result of the low ROI I would probably not be buying this paydirt again anytime soon. At least I have a bag of the Cape Disappointment to pan out in a few days.
Washington Beach Mining 5oz Green River Sample Paydirt ended with a score of 6.4 out of 10. Most of all though the extremely low ROI gave this paydirt absolutely no chance at a high score!
