(eBay Seller) US-Karuk 1lb Vancouver Paydirt Review

The Review of US-Karuk 1lb Vancouver Bag Paydirt:

I do not know why, but the sellers name US-Karuk has always stuck with me. When ever I am asked about a good seller on eBay my mind always goes to US-Karuk. Now that is not to say his paydirt is the best on eBay, just that is how much I enjoyed his paydirt in my last review. One thing I don’t do is rewatch old reviews, because I don’t want to influence myself for future reviews. So I am not really sure why I have US-Karuk stuck in my head but bette rhoe this is a good bag of paydirt, lol.

Well this bag did not start out with a bang, instead it started out with some damp paydirt. So before I could even start my review I had to stick this paydirt form US-Karuk in the oven. Once that was all done I managed to classify it all out. The +10 and the -10/+20 paydirt was pretty uneventful as it had no gold.

Once I got to the -20/+30 is when I hit the jackpot. Well It wasn’t a jackpot by weight, but after all the other pay dirt that had no gold it was a bountiful surprise. Those 50-60 small little flakes of gold really put a spark in my panning. Then I got to the -30 paydirt and the gold dropped off big time. Still found a little bit of gold but not much.

This is definitly an easier bag of paydirt to pan out. Was pretty clean paydirt and since 95% of the gold was in the -20/+30 range it would be easier for a novice to pan out. This stuff also wasn’t full of black sands like most paydirt.

US-Karuk 1lb Vancouver Paydirt ended with a score of 7.0 out of 10. This was a good bag of paydirt and the score would be a lot higher if the seller added a description and used better bags.

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!
