VIDEO DEMONSTRATING GOLD-PANNING

This video shows how a gold pan is used. Gold is 19.6 times heavier then water and the rocks and sand are typically about 6 to 7 times lighter than gold. By keeping all the sand and gravel moving and suspended in water, the heavier gold drops to the bottom of the pan. The lighter materials are rinsed off the edge of the pan with the water, leaving the gold behind. Filmed by Evan Lewis.
