Gold Pan TURBOPAN 40 cm.
46.00EUR 30.67EUR


Computer Assisted Design for a complex Hi-Tech Gold Pan.
Anti-clockwise pattern for waste ejection
Additional Sidewall Riffles
Green color to see gold more clearly
Well built for rugged field use.

Turbopan was designed by Kim Hillier, an Australian geologist and prospector with over 20 years experience in mineral exploration and gold prospecting. His first experience with gold pans was using traditional steel "Klondike" pans, as well as plastic gold pans, while doing panned concentrate sampling surveys for alluvial and hard rock gold.

The process of panning down samples was slow and the results highly variable, depending on the skill and enthusiasm of the panner. He found that compaction of black sands often stopped gold getting right to the bottom of the pan, and it could be lost if the panner wasn’t careful.
It was also a slow process!

He saw a need for a pan that would require a lot less technique, was easy for beginners to use, and could reduce a load of dirt quickly – while being cheap enough to be available to all budget sizes. He figured the necessary requirements of a good gold pan would be to:

Get the gold to the bottom and into a trap as quickly and as effectively as possible
Get the waste out as quickly as possible while not losing any gold
Allow concentrates to be cleaned up quickly and effectively
In 2000 Kim entered his first gold panning championship: The Far North Queensland Gold Panning Championship. He won the Men’s Skilled event. He won it again in 2004, as well as winning a Queensland Championship in 2003. Kim went in his first World Gold Panning Championship in 2001, when it was held in Australia.

In 2004 he won the un-official category of Enduro Gold Panning at the World Championships, panning 80kg of dirt in 22 minutes. Kim has been a Grand Finalist at the World level 5 times, putting him in the top 30 gold panners in the World.
