They recovered about $57 dollars worth of gold out of two buckets of dirt I brought back from the desert where I had already found some nuggets.

Way to go Doc. Getting the kids to learn and keep them into hobbies outdoors is great. I've never seen a gold pan like the purple pan. Something new?

I took my 10 year old out today for an hour to try the new Equinox 600 we got. Found 13 cents and a few pull tabs. He can't wait to get out again!
