Sadly it seems CarolinaPaydirt.com has closed it's doors. Hopefully they come back as they had a good product.
Well thank god October is almost over. It seems while September was the month full of panning that beautiful yellow gold, October is the month of delays and delays. So even though I had some great paydirt to review it seemed I was and am always behind a few days this month. I already know November and December are going to be busy months due to kids vacations and holidays so I am only going to do 2 gold reviews per month those months.
One good thing that came out of October is I finally got around to moving this blog to a new host. I am not sure if the site will load faster but my other host upped its price 4 fold and just wasn't worth it anymore for the speeds the site was loading. I still need to change out the design as well as implement a new rating system to take into effect the NON ROI ratings of some of this paydirt. I really want two ratings on each bag of paydirt, a ROI rating and the everything else rating. So a great fun bag with a lower ROI won't be ignored simply because the ROI isn't 100% or better. While a great ROI is awesome sometimes a huge bag of fun paydirt is even better.
Well on to the review and remember to subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE so as to not miss any of my reviews.
So finished off the last of the CarolinaPaydirt.com paydirt and man am I pleased with it all. This bag, the 8oz concentrates was just as much fun, but just less of it. The 8oz is really just a miniaturized version of the 3lb picker bag. Again it was extremely dirty paydirt so it mucks up the water fairly quickly. Again was surprised the ROI ended so high, as I thought it would be closer to 35% but as always gold is a weird weighing mineral. Overall again it was an extremely fun bag of paydirt and I am happy with all 3 bags I got from carolinapaydirt.com
I will be posting another post with the final ROI of all 3 bags of paydirt based on the “Combo Box” price and what the final ROI would be if purchased at the discounted rate. You can find the “Combo Box ROI” HERE.
CarolinaPaydirt.com's 8oz Concentrate Bag ended with a total score of 8.1 out of 10. While the ROI was pretty low the other criteria raised the score a lot. While the score was high I would probably stick with the combo box over individual bags due to the low ROI.

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!
