Well seems like forever since I managed to dig into any of my stockpiled Pay Dirt. So managed to get two bags panned out and this is the 1st of the two reviews for today.
First let me say this seller also sells on Amazon and ebay (Elkie13) as well. I also noticed on Ebay they had another seller selling the exact same paydirt but under a different user name. After contacting the owner of Constellation Mining Company I was told it is just some schmoe who bought up a lot of their paydirt and is reselling it. Since the reseller might have opened the bags please be wary when buying the Constellation pay dirt.Now onto the Pay Dirt itself! This stuff is full of small flaky shale which makes panning a real chore. Since the shale is flat it tends to dig into the riffles of a pan and prevent just rolling out like normal rocks. Also the gold was all flat flakes so that combined with the flakes of shale made it hard to make the gold always sink to the bottom. So pan this stuff carefully and with care so not to lose any gold.
I will say one thing everyone should do is visit the Constellation Mining Company website just to read the blog.
ConstellationMiningCompany.com's 1lb bag ended with a score of 8.5 out of 10. It was a fun small cheap bag of paydirt with a decent ROI.

Elkie13's Nicely Packaged Pay Dirt
This review is my opinion and my results may vary from your results. My bag may have been a bad batch or a great batch, remember no two bags of paydirt are ever the same. So please use common sense when buying paydirt from any seller. Oh and good luck and happy panning!
