"Hey John. Just wanted to start with a big thank you for a great day spent panning through your paydirt bag... I panned it with my parents and niece and nephew... we all had a great time finding sapphires and emeralds and other gems of which there where so many... and what look like small rubies as well. Then there was the gold... found almost 0.5 of a gram and we have only panned the dirt once so far. Looking forward to re-panning it again and already ordered my next bag. Thanks again and all the best mate. Cheers"

"I'd just like to say thank you for the quality of your Paydirt. I spent 3 hours with my wife and two young kids panning and re-panning, continually finding new treasures each time. We had a blast. All the best in your recovery from the fires"

"Dear John...thank you for the Paydirt shipments over the last few months. I'm happy to support an Aussie business. Your product is always shipped promptly, packaged well & you provide communication as to what is happening with the order. As a customer, all of this is appreciated. Your Paydirt has always been as described. I find it relaxing & interesting to pan the material multiple times & find some gold in each pan. The mixture of gold is good too - pickers, flakes & fine gold, not just one type. This helps me develop my panning technique so on my few prospecting trips, I have a better chance of recovering gold if it's there. So I'm not wasting my limited time in the field. Then there are the gemstones to pick through & identify as well. Please keep up the good work ! A Merry Christmas & a happy & healthy New Year to you & your family. Regards"

"Well my paydirt turned up I've only been in the prospecting game for a few months and I can honestly say that was the most enjoyable 2 hours lean't over a tub with my pan in my hand I've had since I started and by the look of things I'll be going through it many times yet "

Ben, Rosebury NT, Apr 2019 - PAYDIRT

"Highly recommend Eureka Prospecting, My hubby gifted me a bag of Paydirt for Xmas and so far I've found 1.24grams of gold in good lil nuggets, finer gold & other Fabulous gems and I still have plenty more to pick out... super stoked. Thank you "

"Great product for value and sells out in minutes every time! Loaded with all sorts of gemstones which I am yet to identify and packed with gold ranging in sizes. I purchased 2 bags of regular Paydirt for a friend and myself. Instantly we were amazed how much colour was in our pans!! The more you dig the more it provides in gems and ... gold in each bag!!! This Paydirt has us both hooked!! Can't wait till next release... thanks for the hours of joy and hope to be a long time customer for years to come."

"very first pan of just a spoonful of the premium paydirt"

"some nice pickers"

"loads of gems"

"I bought my first 200g of PAYDIRT in June 2017 and I missed out on the premium, so I made sure I was ready for the regular bag. I just wanted to see how it was, I can honestly say that the bag was well worth the price. I love the bag it comes in for starters... like a money bag for the bank I guess...then rather than pan it, I decided to just take a spoon full at a time and take my time to sort through it, Oh my god, I didn't expect so many Beautiful Crystals... then I realized there was just as many light purple Stones... that's Amethyst I'm sure, then a very small amount of red zircons, 1 or 2 blue and green sapphires...and then I searched for the GOLD!! Wow... there was gold in this BAG too... not going to disclose this, I don't want everyone buying these bags now, because I want to buy more. I decided to look at the paperwork that came with the bag, Diamonds??... HMM how can or would I know...Devils Dice?...I wonder if that's these very minute pieces of near perfect square rocks... oh I have to check my bag even further, who knows whats in there, maybe I will smash up some of the quartz too as there may be some extra hidden gems inside the stone... Thanks for the BAG and I'll be buying more this coming Saturday, I must try a bag of premium... regards"

Thanks John... me and my fiancée are new to fossicking and found some nice rocks around W.A. I bought her 2 of your Paydirts and we love them... we can now fossick at home while watching the TV. She just loves looking through the Paydirt finding all the gems. I then get to keep the gold haha. Very happy with your product and hope to get more in the future"

Marc, Welshpool ACT, Oct 2016 - PAYDIRT

"Liz and I panned out the bag you kindly gave us on your last visit, and I can say with all honesty that it's the best Paydirt I've ever seen offered in Australia. A fantastic amount of both fines and heavies that will test all levels of panners; and great to see that there is a good range of high SG gems amongst it. Keep up the good service John and may luck follow you around this season.....Cheers Wal"


"Well shown John. From experience, pan these bags a few times, they really do keep giving... Exceptional Paydirt.... Cheers ..."

"The results of 1 bag of regular Paydirt"

Davis, Maryborough QLD, Apr 2016 - PAYDIRT

"I'm a happy customer ..... I had classified the dirt though 2mm mesh before I panned off and only today got around to sorting through the screenings and found a nice picker (see attachment) so yes PAYDIRT does keep giving. You'll notice another order from me this week. I've mentioned you on 2 prospecting forums that I contribute on and hopefully you'll be seeing a swell in sales as a result. regards"

Rob, Frankston VIC, 17 Apr 2016 - PAYDIRT

"As an experienced panner I was greatly impressed with the way Paydirt is presented, and the contents immediately on opening visually deliver up to expectation with gems and crystals clearly visible. The gold content was of primary interest to me and here again PAYDIRT delivered to expectation. PAYDIRT is exactly as described in the product description - I found gold flakes and a picker however at this point, apart from amethyst, the gemstones are a mystery for me and I just might have scored a diamond for all I know. I will purchase PAYDIRT again."

Rob, Frankston VIC, 09 Apr 2016 - PAYDIRT

"Hi John, got the pay-dirt yesterday . I went over to a couple of mates who are hardcore prospectors here in WA and they loved ya baggies. A lot of variety, great for novices ... noting some small gold visual (1 picker) and flats .... nice touch with the gems etc... I love it... very good and its something I would have for Prospector Park ... I will keep you in mind for anything in the future"
Simon, Prospector Park WA, 05 Apr 2016 - PAYDIRT

"I throughly enjoyed the bags of Paydirt. Really challenging and exciting to process. I would recommend them to everyone. Really interesting mineral in there as well, molybdonite I am told, and a few small blue sapphires... nice to have in the collection, as well lots of quartz crystals and little bits of amethyst.....And of course 2.81g of the yellow."

Mark, Mitchell ACT , 27 Jan 2016 - PAYDIRT

"Thanks for the quick delivery of my paydirt. I was amazed at what I found. I panned it about 6 times and it was still giving gold from pickers to very fine gold. Just when I thought there wouldn't be anymore, I then put it through my blue bowl and guess what, there was more gold. Lucky I did or I would have thrown it away. Mate you are right, that dirt keeps on giving. I will certainly be purchasing more paydirt. Thanks again".
