If you are looking to go on a vacation that might be PROFITABLE instead of a loss, why not consider gold panning? Not only is panning for gold and other treasures fun, but you can also find treasures that can be worth enough money to pay for your vacation, pay off your car, or even buy a new home! Below you will find a list of some of the best places to take a gold panning vacation. But first, let me tell you that you can actually Gold Pan right in the privacy of your own home! Here’s a really unique opportunity that you can use to try out panning prior to planning a gold panning vacation. There’s a company online that sells and ships loads of gold panning dirt (referred to as “Pay Dirt”) directly to your home. And the cool thing is that every load of dirt DOES have something in it – gold, gems, etc. The one item I was interested in is the 2 fill pound of pay dirt for only $35. It has a guarantee of a minimum of 1 gram of gold in it – so you know that, no matter what, you’re getting something back.
Here’s the direct link to order your own Pay Dirt sent right to your home.

Also, if you are looking to purchase low cost, high quality panning supplies, then be sure to check out Black Cat Mining. This company specializes in panning equipment. Black Cat Mining has everything from Metal Detectors to Gold Concentrators, Treasure Hunting Books, Clearance Items and more at mega affordable prices.
