With the Gold Claw pan, you can now get out of the house, go to nature, spice up that typical campout or hike with a gold adventure that will produce lifetime memories. Gold panning has been around for over a millennia, dating back beyond the ancient Egyptians. In all that time not much has changed. The old style of panning requires a lot of technique, tons of training, and is difficult to learn. Unless you are an expert, it is very easy to have the gold in the pan and lose it without even knowing it was there! The Gold Claw pan has improved features engineered into the outer edge of the pan. This ensures every particle interacts with and is caught by these gold grabbing features. All you do is shake the material in a thin layer out of the pan until all that remains is gold. The Gold Claw is so easy to use that even little kids can use them.
