Gold is much heavier than ordinary sand, nineteen times heavier than an equal amount of water, therefore it sinks to the bottom of the pan before the dirt settles. We will show you how to seperate the sand, rocks and dirt from the gold using the old time gold miner’s technique. With the right swirling motion gold will stay on the bottom while you wash away the dirt. When you see all your gold we’ll help you put it into a vial of water and seal it for you to take home.
