Desert Fox Automatic Panning Machine 

The Desert Fox is a compact, light-weight automatic spiral gold panning machine you can take anywhere. Weighing under 10 pounds even with a rugged folding stand, it folds up and stores neatly in its Action Packer tub. Operate it right out of the tub, or remove it from the case and use it in a stream. The Desert Fox gets it name because it will operate on just three gallons of water. It sets up quickly and easily and can run 70 pounds of concentrates in an hour-- it's both a separator and a concentrator in one self-contained panning machine. The Desert Fox recovers an amazing amount of flour gold so you never lose even the smallest pieces (which all add up!). Operates on any 12-volt automotive battery or even a 35 watt solar panel (not included). Comes with an owner's manual and a small bag of sand containing real placer gold so you can practice with your new machine and see how efficient and easy it is to use before you take it into the field.

Accessories for the Desert Fox are also available below— a backpack harness, chargers, and a Kit for using the Desert Fox and the Mountain Goat Gold Trommel together. 

If you'd like some unbiased reviews of the Desert Fox, which has been manufactured in the USA since 1969, respected writer and life-long gold prospector Jim Klein field tested this gold panning machine and reported his findings in the March/April 2002 issue of Gold Prospector Magazine. Garret Romaine also reviewed the Desert Fox and Gold Magic in the Nov/Dec 2009 issue of Gold Prospectors Magazine.
