Alaska Gold Paydirt Concentrates - 8 Oz. Packet:
Up for your consideration: Alaskan Sluice Concentrates
Hey There Folks! Welcome the VA Gold Seeker Store. Go ahead and kick your shoes off, relax and have a look around. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Up for your consideration we are offering an8 oz. packet of ……Alaskan Pay Dirt Concentrate. The item ships USPS priority flat rate.
The material is mined by a friend who has been working in Alaska for several years now. I was fortunate enough to have met him some years back and we struck up a conversation. We found out that we both had an affinity for gold and prospecting. One thing led to another and now I am happy to offer you some pretty great material to work.
You are offerding on Alaskan material mined in the Eastern part of the state. This material is quite interesting and it is surprising what minerals one might find. Okay, so what you really want to know is, “what is the gold content”? The gold that we have found in this material runs a gambit from micro fines to small nuggets. Please do not purchase with the thought of getting all pickers or nuggets because that may not happen. We processed a lot of this material over the last 5 years and always found gold. Some of the material only contained powder fine gold but never the less gold always is present. I cannot tell you exactly how much or what you will find. That is just a mystery of prospecting. The material does have a decent amount of black sands as well as interesting minerals and gems.
I will not going into depth regarding the process of running material but if I may I do have two suggestions.
The first: Please process this several times. Pickers and nuggets are easy to get out but to get all the gold it requires a little effort. Make sure that you have a catch tray. Sorry I know that you have heard that 1000 timesJ.
Secondly: Products such as Jet Dry or even detergent aid in eliminating float gold. Remember surface tension is not a friend to panner. Funny story, I was out of Jet Dry so I used some of Nita’s dish detergent in my clean up sluice. The soap worked great and smelled “spring time fresh”; however, after a while I couldn’t even see the sluice through the suds. J
My wife and I want to thank our many customers. Due to you, this has become a rewarding experience. We have made many friends that touched our hearts. Unfortunately it has become necessary to add a disclaimer to our product. So here goes:

This sale is for an 8 ounce packet of Alaskan Gold Concentrates. We previously offered these same concentrates; however, my buddy that sluices the material has been working as a guide for the summer and not mining. Of course this really blew my mind. Guiding….Mining you make the decision lol.
We have begun moving into our new workshop and I came across a bucket of the Alaskan material. I really struggled with running this myself or listing. After a discussion with Neat (For those that do not know Neat is my wife Anita) listing won out. I am very excited to say that,YES IT IS BACK!!!The Alaskan Sluice Cons offered by VA Gold Seeker’s.
These cons are mined in an undisclosed creek in a secret location south of Anchorage. All I know about the location is you go about 53 miles until you see this certain black rock where you turn right and go another 7 miles to a certain stump.......and so on and so forth. This material is a mixture of dredge and shoveled sluiced concentrates. After removing the overburden, the pay layer is run through a trommel. The trommel classifies the material to 3/8” and finally drops into the sluice. The material you are offerding on is a portion of these cons.
What will you find? Well, let’s hope a fair amount of gold.Okay joking aside. This material has a decent amount of black sands. We are also finding some garnet as well as other gems. The gold will range from micro dust to small nuggets; however, dust is in small supply. The majority of gold will be flakes and pickers. Depending on your definition, nuggets are also being found. Please remember though sluiced, the product is unsearched and directly from the mats. Of course we do dry, weigh and package the material but the amount of gold remains a mystery. I know that some people complain that the material dirties the waters. I do not know what to say about that. Folks, ummmm this is dirt it will dirty the water and yes it has been sluiced.
For what it is worth my suggestion is to work this material slowly and just a bit at a time. Personally looking at this material the first thing that comes to mind is “Quikrete”. It is thick, heavy and feels just like concrete. I suggest that you classify before panning. Pay close attention to the rocks. When testing we found quartz/gold specimens. Try working slowly and methodically. Begin with a few tablespoons at a time until you get a feel for the weight. The blonds (ummmmm maybe I should say the grays????' ;-) will work away leaving what we are all looking for (Gooooooooold). Be aware the gold likes to hide in the black sand so when using a magnet I also pan the magnetics. If you are fanatical like I am try running this several times. The fines always seem to keep showing up. Consider using a loop. I use a 30x but lately have gone to a 1000x micro cam. The cam not only shows how cool the gold looks but brings out the micro gems. Under a 1000x even sand looks gemmy!
If you have any questions just give me a shout and I will do my best to get you on the right track. I have never done this before but my Buddy is guiding until Octoberish so when this material is gone we are all out of luck until he gets some more stock piled. Due to the limited supply sales are restricted to 4 lbs, that way more people can have a chance at some great panning. When mining resumes we will lift this restriction. Sorry if this causes any inconveniences.
