When I saw the pyramid Pro Pan I thought that would be a great piece of equipment to add to my inventory. I thought that it would be great to use in places that you can not use a dredge or a sluice box. Places that only panning is allowed or even in a location that the water is low and running to slow to operate a sluice. I thought that it would be a great item that you could use in those hard to get to locations that you may have to hike into, its light weight and fits in a backpack. I was in a location that only panning was allowed and there was some very nice gold and panning is just a very slow method, I was thinking I need something that I can move a lot of material in a relatively short period of time. I had seen the Pyramid Pro Pan on the net and also advertised in a magazine there were claims that it could keep up with a sluice box. I figured this would be just what I need. I found some videos on YouTube and saw it in action, looked good. I told my wife that I would like one for Christmas so she got me one and I finally got to test it out over the weekend. I dug some material, classified it down to half-inch, and filled a five gallon bucket. I ran the material through the Pyramid Pro Pan and it only took up to at most ten minutes. If I had to pan that bucket it would have taken me hours, the better part of a day. I ran a second bucket right on top of the material I had already run. It was easy to operate, clean up was a snap, I just pulled the plug and emptied the concentrates into my pan and finished it off. I had flour gold. The location I was in has abundant flour gold and if this thing will catch the finest of flour gold it will definitely catch the larger gold as well. I am very pleased with the operation of this pan and I was not disappointed in the least bit. I highly recommend the Pyramid Pro Pan.

    Sounds like something I might like. Is this kinda like the Nugget Bucket?

    • I have only seen pictures of the Nugget Bucket I have never used one so I am not sure. All I can say is that the Pyramid Pro Pan is easy to use and it gets even the finest of gold and you can move a lot of material. I can process a bucket of material in less than 10 minutes. I like it a lot.
      Thank you for the follow.

    10 minutes is fast! I was near Hayden, Arizona 2 days ago on a club claim and wish I had one. I need to carry water and reuse, but still, it would have been easier and faster in the heat. I didn’t want to list an auto link, so here is where you can look at it – goldrushnuggetbucket.com. Good shapes and builds. Thumbs up.

    Very cool. It does seem quite similar to the Nugget Bucket in functionality but I’m eager to see if it gets even finer gold than that. I’m looking for a new sluice and pan kit right now at various online stores and so far have found some good deals at goldrushtradingpost.com but I need more reviews like this to help me make my decision.
