As always it has been far too long since my last review. Also as always you can blame my doctors, as they always want me to do this or do that, or go here and get these tests done. Worst is they always want me to come sped hours in their waiting rooms watching my soul drain away, lol. What little time wasn't wasted by my doctors went into finishing some projects around the house and in my gold shed.
The good news is, while i spent those hours shriveling up in the waiting rooms I made some spreadsheets and templates to use for future reviews. These will cut down on some of my time I used to spend shooting or reviewing gold paydirt. In turn I will now start giving full reviews on the videos. That means final numbers, ratings and oh yea ROI's.
I still hope everyone will still come visit my blog as every 1000 visitors or so I make a penny and that penny helps fund all those bad bags of paydirt I buy simply to review, lol.
Well on to the review and remember to subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE so as to not miss any of my reviews.
GoldNPaydirt got its start selling sluices. I know because I tried and tried to get one for the longest time. The owner Brian used to sell the bucket sluices on eBay and I emailed him numerous times about them. It was on my wish list for the longest time, but with most money going towards paydirt I never had the extra funds. Then once I did have the money he had stopped selling them and moved onto paydirt. So I figured if I can't get the sluice might as well get the paydirt.
GoldNPaydirt sells its paydirt not only on it's website goldnpaydirt.com but also on eBay and Amazon. Now the reason I tell you this is because the prices vary from site to site and not in the normal way. Most sellers charge more on eBay and amazon due to the fees they are charged. This is not the case with GoldNPaydirt, as most times the prices are higher on the website. So I found the best price on eBay and that is where I purchased my paydirt.
Okay, so now more about the paydirt itself. This stuff is dusty and I mean dusty, but it really doesn't foul up your water which is a good thing. It contains a ton of magnetized black sands which will make getting though the paydirt much easier if you use a magnet. If you don't it will definitely help make this a challenging bag of paydirt to pan out.
I must say as a sort of disclaimer that I am pretty sure, like 99% sure, that I hit the jackpot in this jackpot bag. So not sure how the jackpots work, but pretty sure the nugget might have been the jackpot. If it was it would have changed the ROI greatly. With out that nugget I recovered 0.342 grams of gold worth $13.93, so would have had a final ROI of 48.89% so that nugget really changed the final ROI and review rating.
GoldNPaydirt's 2lb Jackpot bag ended with a score of 9.4 out of 10. The ROI was over 100% and I can only assume that is because I had a jackpot in my jackpot bag. The paydirt was extremely fun to pan as I found it difficult with all the black sands. The really only downside to this paydirt was the descriptions which are slightly confusing. Also having to shop around between multiple sites for the best price was time consuming. They did get a higher grade for packaging for double bagging though.

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!
