Turbopan™ gold pan is a prospecting tool and mining tool for the prospector and artisan miner involved in small scale mining. Whether you're a hobbyist out looking for a run or a crevice filled with gold – or gold panning for a living in a developing country – Turbopan is the right piece of prospecting equipment that gets all the gold easily and quickly. Turbopan eliminates the problem of compaction that happens in the traditional pan because it is basically a circular sluice. Turbopan doesn't require running water like a sluice, it simply maximizes the effects of gravity. Its shallow depth means it can be used in puddles and troughs. And its unique color lets you easily see the gold, even when panning in black sand!
