A good panner will help your placer mining endeavors

A good panner  will help your placer mining endeavors
This year we changed things up a bit and added Paul to our team this year.

Paul pans each level of our pay gravel seam.  Top to bottom everyday and its the toughest job on the project. His efforts have really assisted me in determining what I send to the plant. Our grades are fairly low and I have been able to keep our mining plan on track.

A jack of all trades from driving the rock truck to feeding the plant we are lucky to have him.

Accurate panning is essential to keep your pay gravel grade in your economic margins.
