Gold Rush Panning Kit Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

Fans of the popular Discovery Channel show, Gold Rush are sure to love the Gold Rush Panning Kit. This exciting kit for young (and older) prospectors features a 12” gold pan, glass vile, snuffer bottle, 1 bag of pay dirt and a certificate of authenticity. In fact, every panning is guaranteed to contain real gold…..some bags in the Gold Rush Panning Kit has up to $500 worth of gold in it!

Our family thought the concept of panning for gold in our own backyard was thrilling and the kids couldn’t wait to find pay dirt. This is an activity that is fun for the entire family and features everything you need to feel like a gold prospector.

Available from the Pay Dirt Gold Company you can shop online to purchase the Gold Rush Panning Kit ($39.95), an additional 2 pound bag of pay dirt ($29.99) and even a scale ($19.95). You will find everything that you will need to have an “authentic” gold mining experience at home.

I homeschool my children so we decided it would be fun to include this as a unit study in which we studied the history of mining for gold throughout time, watched episodes of Gold Rush on the Discovery Channel and for the grand finale we panned for gold!

We watched the instructional video online at the Pay Dirt Gold Company website and read the easy to follow, detailed instructions before getting started. It was such a fun experience using this kit to pan for gold and the kids eyes got wide when they saw authentic gold flakes for the first time. In fact, even my husband and I thought it was a great adventure and we were thrilled to pull out the bits of real gold. Striking gold was truly exciting (even for us grown-ups) and we all agree that this gold mining kit is a big hit.
