The Review of Eureka Joes 2lb Bag Paydirt:
I have previously reviewed Eureka Joes and 2lb Taste Of Alaska paydirt. That bag had a score of 8.0 but I did miss grade one item so it probably would have graded out as a 7.9 as well. So before I get into the real review at least one thing about this seller is it is consistent. It’s just too bad neither bag was great, just average, so consistently average.
This bag started on on a real positive note. The paydirt cam double bagged, and I love that, even if the main bag is a coffee bag at least they added a second (ziploc) bag to catch anything if the main bag broke. So off to a good start, but it kind of went down from their.
Now I normally don’t expect to find a lot of gold in the +10 material, but when your paying $55 which is more then the cost of a gram of gold you want to find at least one piece. Especially on a 2lb bag where about 12oz of your material is in the +10 range. Sadly I did not! All I found was dust and more dust, oh and the +10 rocks.
Once I got down to the -10/+20 and -20/+30 is when i hit the mother load of gold. The problem was it just wasn’t enough. It was fun sort of, I mean I was finding gold but again just not enough. Then when I got to the -30 I found a lot of fine gold, but fine gold doesn’t move scales as much as I needed it too.
In the end I was so so happy with this bag but I got the impression this bag was a $55 sample bag. So you could see how the dirt is, what kind of gold etc, but just a small taste so you would buy a larger more expensive bag. Which at a 55% ROI I won’t be rushing off to do. Now this isn’t horrible paydirt, but when you start getting in the +$55 range they have a lot more sellers with a bigger bang for the buck.
Eureka Joes 2lb Paydirt ended with a score of 7.9 out of 10.
So I was happy with this bag but it was pretty in the middle. Nothing to wow you over or really complain about. Just an average bag of paydirt!
