Maybe I missed it but one of my best recent purchases was a good hand lens 10X - 15X is fine and it helps a lot when panning out the black sand. I feel a lot more confident now that I am not blowing out any flour gold.

I carry a pouch and in it is spare everything a eye dropper also works good also. I have miners magnut, lupals spare vials tweesers spare sniffer botttle plyers and soap in a vial. This is strapped to my wast. I have 2 spare pouches pockets for anything i find and can put aside for a look at home, and add rubber boots a gold pan i do not use a classifier when panning. I empty it out in my classes so ppl can see my stuff i may need at any time. I also have a spot in pouch for my vial of gold. I LOST TOO MUCH STUFF PANNING SO I LIKE MY POUCH AS IT STRAPS AROUND ME AND WHEN PANNING I HAVE ACESS TO IT AT ALL TIMES WITHOUT GETTING UP CHEERS RAY

ronut - if you are any where near Van - I suggest

for a hand lens. My $18 lens works like a charm.

Great post I was on the right track on my own you just focused my packing list and made the load a little lighter. The 3 gal bucket is a great idea as I can see how 5 callin buckets would get very tiresome quickly

Great thread with lots of excellent info/suggestions. I thought I had most of the bases covered, just to find there are some things I should have that I never even considered.
