Three Vets also has some cheap gold pans and equipment. They are right behind the Cambie Can Tire on Yukon St.

I've been into Factory Tools Direct in Mission, they've got quite a bit of stuff in there. I asked one of the guys there if they had a website, he told me to check out West Coast Prospecting -  Ultimate Source For Your Gold Prospecting Needs

There's also another place between Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs called The Happy Prospector, they have a website also....

Midland Liquidators on Kingsway or Langley Bypass. Pans, classifiers, snuffer bottles, specimen bottles, shovels, boots, gloves and assorted useful hardware.

WOW another CHAD... you must be awesome..lol  Cheers to the Chads!

Anyhow,  Good leads for the new people.. my only comment would be SMI guys I find condescending and rude.  Especially when I was new... now some of it stems from them always being understaffed...  endless lineup of people making radios and crap and we all know how much prospectors like to chit chat about this and that.. so understandably tiresome..but still.  your in customer service..lol

pony tail guy (sorry if your on here man)  needs more time in the field prospecting so that he can offer passionate advice.  Just my two cents...

I bought a few things at Barry's in Yale, his prices seem ok. Good selection for fall.

Thanks I'll go there and have a look. I need a couple more things such as a weight scale that measures in lbs not grams.🤔

upnorth ,

Going to the internet might be the way to go for an accurate digital scale.  BE SURE to verify that it measures in TROY Ounces, and after that hurdle, AVOIRDUPOIS Ounces (flour and sugar weight), grains, grams and pennyweight all are easy to choose and convert.

PM to you.
