Update: This sellers site has now closed!
Well has it been a while! WOW! Who knew life could keep me away from the shiny stuff for so long. So after ever so long I have a new review and boy is this one a tale of good vs evil. Before I review this pay dirt please read the following story and warning:
I purchased 2 bags of pay dirt from this seller last year and actually I forgot I had. Well 3 months later I get an email from Rob (the owner of goldbearingpaydirt.com) that due to a one-time problem shipments were delayed but he was sending partial refunds to make up for it. I believe the refund was supposed to be 50%. So sounded good to me, since I had forgotten about it might as well get it for half off. Two days later I get a full refund and following day 2 bags of pay dirt show up at my door. So all's good right, I mean free pay dirt, who can complain? Well it seems this one-time problem became a common practice for him. About a month after I got my pay dirt in I posted here that I would review it in a few days. Well soon after I posted this I started getting a lot of emails from customers of Rob that they weren't getting in what they ordered and he wasn't replying to emails.
Well after 3 of these emails I decided to email Rob and he replied same day. He said he was behind in his shipping but everything was good. I also asked him about some promo he was running where 1 in 10 bags had large nuggets added. I asked him about which bag, as he had several from $35 to $150 and over 3 emails he skirted the issue which worried me. Well after continued emails with his customers seems nobody got what they paid for and his site expired. So while the review below will be good I highly suggest you stay away from Goldearingpaydirt.com until Rob gets his act in gear.
This will be a review on 2 of Robs (Goldbearingpaydirt.com) bags of pay dirt. I had originally planned on putting this into 2 reviews but then decided better to be one since both bags were ordered together and arrived in the same box, so odds are they were from the same batch. Now this stuff was hard and I mean hard to pan. It was almost all fine gold with a few flakes and all the dirt was almost all fine black sand. What made it harder is I can't find my magnet and too lazy to buy another. It ended up taking me right about a month to pan this all down to nothing but gold but boy was it fun in a maddening way. This was that tedious pay dirt you can only stare at for short periods of time before going cross-eyed, lol. It was good paydirt though, and with a ROI of 59.45% will be in the top 10 of my top ROI's.
This is pay dirt I would definitely have bought again if not for the seller's issues (see above).
GoldBearingPaydirt.com ended with a score of 6.2 out of 10! While the paydirt was fun )in a maddening way) and I probably would have given it another shot since the ROI wasn't horrible the shipping issues would keep me away.

The Gold Weigh In
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!
