"GopanKa" gold pans

Nowadays, traditional gold panning is a popular activity and a hobby to be enjoyed during active vacations. And maybe even more…
Image
I would like to offer you several types of gold pans from my workshop for this activity – we are calling them the "GopanKa" series. They are all made of steel with thickness of 0.8 mm, handmade.

If you have any comments or suggestions with respect to the pans, please contact me.

I will do my best to accommodate you. If you are looking for a little inspiration first, please read this article about Jan Kralik, a Slovak gold digger of the 21st century.

If you are a beginner and would like to learn more about gold panning, enjoy an e-book by Braňo Martiš: - How to become a gold digger.

Ask your curious questions on the new gold panning forum - click here.

Then go to the website of Gold Digger Tom and Whitejoker, where you will find more specific examples of gold panning. You can check out the gold panning technique with a pan or sluice box in a short video guide by Honza Bašta.

Watch my video about gold panning on the Danube.
