Where can I use the Gold Rush Nugget Bucket?
As long as there are no signs in public locations posted with claims, you can use it on most public lands, including the beach, rivers, lakes, and more. We do encourage all prospectors to contact their local government office that administers the specific tract of land that you want to use, and get explicit permission for your proposed date, location and activity.
No. The funnel and bowl are designed to force the gold to the bottom of the bowl and keep it there. All other material will flow over the top and out as waste. Just check the bottom of the bowl occasionally to see if you’ve collected gold, and if you have, you can now pan it.
Do I Have To Empty The Collection Bowl When It Fills Up?
Do I Have To Put Anything In The Bowl Prior To Using It?
It’s best to have a few small rocks or miner’s moss in the bowl if the material you’re using is mainly sand. This will give it a base to help keep the gold at the bottom of the bowl.

What Do I Do With The Magnet In The Vial?
Once you've panned your concentrates down to very fine material, like black sand and the gold, place the vial with the magnet inside to lift the black sand away from the gold. Leave the magnet in the plastic vial as it makes clean up much easier.Shake the vial to remove the black sand from the outside of the vial itself. Thus leaving the gold as the heaviest thing in the pan.
How Do I Use The Sniffer Bottle?
The sniffer bottle can be used in two different ways. The first is to fill with water and then gently blow larger material out of the pan. The second and most frequently used method is to use it as a suction device to suck the gold and gold flake from the pan and then blowing it into the empty vial.
