The original Gold Claw pan is a true gold panning break through... and now it's even better with the addition of a smaller Pocket Pan included in the kit. Just like the original larger version, the Pocket Pan is made in the USA from rugged Tritan plastic, which is virtually indestructible and sun resistant. The Pocket Pan is available in several colors: Rich Green, Purple, Bright Green, Blue, Clear, or Black. Use drop down menu to choose the color of your Pocket Pan and the larger Gold Claw pan.
When you purchase a Gold Claw Original & Pocket Pan Kit, you get: Original Gold Claw gold pan (12 inches wide x 10 inches tall x 2.75 inches deep), smaller Pocket Pan, practice paydirt (contains 5 to 10 flakes of real gold!), a snuffer bottle to easily suction the gold from the pan to the vial, and a small empty vial in which you can display and keep your newly discovered gold! Practicing on paydirt before you go out builds confidence, so you'll know you are panning correctly. The practice paydirt can be used over and over to refine your skills (TIP: get a scoop of dirt from a local stream and mix in your gold to master panning it since every type of gravel acts differently).

Kevin Hoagland, Executive Director of Development for Gold Prospector's Association of America, had this to say about the Gold Claw in the Nov/Dec 2017 issue of Gold Prospectors magazine (page 42): "Gold Claw burst onto the prospecting stage last year and has enjoyed great reviews ever since. The Gold Claw is a welcome addition to the world of gold prospecting for the simple reason that Gold Claw founder Klint Washburn designed a uniquely-shaped pan that works. The Gold Claw doesn't have a lot of fancy bumps, sides, grooves, and other sometimes unnecessary this and that, which has become almost cliche. The Gold Claw and the special panning methods used to master the Gold Claw is different and outside the comfort zone of what most of us old miners have become accustomed. After the initial shock of its design, and the typical 'where's the rest of it?' reaction, we find that it is a serious pan that everyone should have in their gear box. Gold Claw pans use a distinctly different design which makes the tool suited for a variety of uses, one of which is my favorite: dry panning. There is an art to dry panning and hours of practice must go into perfecting your art for success. Well, at least it used to! The Gold Claw for dry panning is fast, and more importantly, extremely efficient. It's the most efficient pan I have used to date. The great thing about the Gold Claw is that it's even more effecient as a wet pan that it is a dry pan. After getting over the initial surprise of how it looks, in very short order your favorite prospector will be catching gold that used to go in the tailings pile on the first pass."
