  1. Charles M.

    I’ve been purchasing this paydirt for years and have always been happy.

  2. Keith H.

    This is a great product. The paydirt bag is a good size for the price. Good dirt for a beginner to learn to pan and know how to spot the gold.

  3. Tony H.

    Very happy with this paydirt from the Original Claim and will continue to be a McDaniels Mining customer. I’ve purchased from other companies and no one but McDaniels has provided such awesome gold.

  4. Timothy Z.

    I love this product. It is priced well and arrived quickly. The dirt was simply amazing and I’m now investing in a sluice to capture all of the gold. I’m new to gold mining and just wanted to learn more about it. This dirt was really easy to pan and the first small amount I panned had a really nice picker in it. Thank you McDaniels Mining!

  5. Kyle H.

    Great purchase! I bought it as I am new to panning and wanted practice with known gold. Very fun and easy, found enough gold to fill the bottom of my vial!

  6. Alan J.

    I bought 2 bags and there was gold in every pan. Worked great to get the technique of gold panning. The free shipping is great too!

  7. Joe W.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this paydirt. Found some fines as well as a nice sized picker. I highly recommend McDaniels!

  8. Larry N.

    Great pay and great service from McDaniels Mining. This is my 5th order from them and I still don’t have a favorite product yet!

  9. Darryl B.

    I found gold in every pan, from one piece on up to several. There was a lot of gold to be found in this bag. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this item to anyone who wants to pan for gold.

  10. Bruce S.

    There is gold everywhere in my pan!

  11. Jake M.

    Always ships fast. I’ve never been disappointed by any of their products. It’s always a great time.

  12. Dave R.

    Fast shipment and found plenty of fine gold and some pickers!

  13. Alex H.

    Great gold, fun to pan, shipped fast!

  14. Edward S.

    Our kids enjoy panning for gold. We also enjoy it as well. We just finished panning out 2 bags, it’s good for a couple hours of entertainment. I just ordered a few more bags to have for when friends come over.

  15. Kevin M.

    McDaniels Mining has fast and free shipping. I was amazed at how easy it was to pan this paydirt and find gold. As a novice, I will definitely be buying more of this dirt.

  16. Chris N.

    I liked the gold in this bag! Quite a few good size pieces and lots of fines! Great practice before going out in the field for the real thing. It’s fun to show the family and teach them how to pan for gold!

  17. Chet S.

    Great fun for those new to gold panning. The amount is good for kids (or adults) who might get bored before finding anything. We found a nice size chunk that was hard to miss. It helped create an excitement to do more panning. Great way for the kids to reduce screen time.

  18. Mary F.

    This was the first paydirt we ordered where we finally got a good amount of gold! We got quite a bit of gold in all 3 bags that we ordered! McDaniels Mining is the paydirt we will be buying from now on. Our 9 year old loves it! We’ve purchased 4 bags now and are getting a nice collection of gold.

  19. Mike T.

    Found some fines and pickers and also had fun! Great fun for those new to gold panning. We found our first piece of gold before we dumped the pay into the pan!

  20. Jay H.

    What an amazing product! I had so much fun panning the pay and was surprised at the amount of gold found! This product is great for all ages and skill levels. I am just learning how to pan for gold and was really surprised to actually find gold in the bottom of my pan. Highly recommend this product for anyone interested in panning for gold. Have already placed another order.

  21. Chris M.

    I really enjoyed panning the Original Claim paydirt. As a beginner, I was hoping my technique was correct and if I was losing any gold. I purchased a bag and it arrived fast. Fun to see gold in the pan. I would recommend to any beginner to test your panning technique or to anyone who wants some gold in their pan.

  22. Joseph R.

    This great product is 5 stars. It is perfect for beginners who want to get their hands on some gold. The product shipped fast and was easy to pan. Also got more gold than expected.

  23. Dale P.

    The material is easy to pan and good for young or new prospectors. Delivered double-bagged which is nice. The gold we collected is stored in a vial.

  24. Emily V.

    Fast shipping, good gold, fun to search through the spoils for the shiny stuff. Thanks McDaniels Mining!

  25. Terry H.

    I liked this product because it was delivered quick and was easy to use! I am a beginner prospector and so I split the dirt in the bag into three panning sessions and found gold every time! I’m looking forward to my next delivery and to keep practicing while receiving the reward of finding gold!

  26. Roger D.

    Fun for the whole family! We found quite a bit of gold and panned through all the material three times just to be sure.

  27. Jim S.

    This was my first bag of paydirt ever purchased. Gold panning has become a bonding activity with my dad. Since we live in an area with no naturally occurring gold, we decided to try this paydirt. Very cool!

  28. Sharon P.

    This was tons of fun! We spent several hours sluicing and hand panning this pay. Got real gold and was happy. Great paydirt, thank you!!
