Well today should be a busy day, this being the first of two reviews plus a very long blog post is in the plans for later today.
This is a very cheap bag of Pay Dirt at only $10 a bag but the shipping is horrible. The company is located in California yet to ship to me they are charging $13 for a 1lb bag of paydirt. That is just outragous! If they shipped priority mail it would arrive sooner and be half the cost. I ordered two bags from GotNuggets.com to try and cut down on the shipping costs but still cost $14.36 for 2 1lb bags of paydirt. So unless the ROI was spectacular I had no plans on ever ordering from again.As to the Pay Dirt, this 1st bag was a very easy panner, with only a few flecks of black sand. So was a very quick and easy cleanup. ROI ended up at 44.50% but would have been higher if GotNuggets didn’t charge so much for shipping. Overall its decent pay dirt, and maybe if you live close enough to cut costs down to under $5 a bag for shipping is worth a try, but not at current $12-15 prices.
Jeff’s Natural Paydirt ended with a score of 6.7 out of 10. The score really suffered from the extremely high shipping costs. If I would have only bought 1 bag the $13 shipping cost wold have cut the ROI down so much the score would be even lower. The score also suffered from a cheap bag and being vastly under weight.

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!
