Well I have tried around 6 or 7 different kinds of paydirt, to practice in winter. I have to say that none have come close to the amount and quality of the gold you get. I could turn around and sell it on ebay and sometimes pay for the whole bag or sometimes just 3/4 of it. The thing I love is the first bag I bought contained a 1.1 beautiful nugget with lots of chactacter. Have only gone through 2 bags this year, 1 pass netted 4.5 grams sure there is plenty left when I start going through it again later this winter along with my other cons. I highly recommened him. Hoping I hit the jackpit this year, he is put 18 1 to 1.5 oz nuggets in 100 bags along with the same or more 1.5oz and quarter oz nuggets. Just one could make my year.
