Placer Mining Equipment
Placer gold is the gold found in small nugget form or tiny chunks of loose gold. In areas rich in gold and gold mines, the gold is usually found scattered on the ground. These tiny chinks or pieces or nuggets are technically termed as Placer gold.
In countries, where a certain area is confirmed to have gold rich deposits in the soil, people usually take up Placer gold hunting as an amateur Placer hunter. Most of the areas where the gold mine had been functioning for years and have yielded gold, but are now shut down due to completion of the gold extraction, have become popular tourist attractions.
Placer mining is essentially done on a low cost basis and purely pursued on a personal basis. But in areas where the labor is utterly cheap, Placer mining has been used to mine gold on a commercial basis too.

The old Pans have been now replaced with innovative models. There are a variety of additional features in some of the models like a Riffle design to trap the gold using gravity, or the high impact Plastic Pan which reduces the panning time in half with a 3/ 8'' sieve.
