Gold pans

Recommended Posts

Hi Allen,

I think that is the annual panning championship at Tankavaara, Finland. Those are not gold pans per se, but rather what is known as a Batea. Very commonly used in central and south america. In the Dutch West Indies, the natives made them out of local wood, and they are called a Dulong. Don't know what they're called in Finnish. They are much faster panning than a typical gold pan, that's why they're popular for timed competitions.
