Fairplay Colorado

Fairplay Colorado

The town of Fairplay Colorado is a historic gold town with a gold panning area along the middle fork of the South Platte River.  For $10.oo/day or $100.00/year,  you can get a permit to pan and sluice the creek and tailings which are practically everywhere.  Read the regulations carefully, unfortunately they are very specific regarding equipment that you can use.  Restroom are located close to the prospecting and fishing pond.

I was quite surprised to find some nice flakes in my pan and could see how a typical sluice box could bring quite a good amount. There are camping spots available which also require a permit. http://fairplayco.us/docsforms/2017_Gold_Panning_permit_application.pdf

Between Fairplay and Alma Colorado rests the Snowstorm dredge.  It is not easy to see and is located on private property.  The plan is to move the dredge closer to the hi-way and turn it into a tourist attraction.  This was one of several bucket line dredges that worked the Platte River.

Don Finley has been in contact with the land owner to donate the Snowstorm to Fairplay and then, raise the money to restore it.  To witness this dredge is quite an impressive site and we have quite a few pictures that will be posted on this site in the near future. We went to a meeting where an old timer talked about how the lights in town would dim when they turned it on.

    Banjo Pan – Worlds Fastest Gold Pan

    The Banjo Pan is the Worlds Fastest Gold Pan using the Gold Cube principles (degrees of separation) we’ve come up with a pan that combines a sluice and a gold pan for continuous production with a removable vortex collection mat.   Not only continuous panning without stopping (similar to a sluice box) but performs wet, dry or underwater!

    So Easy To Use!

    Simply scoop your material into the Banjo Pan and dip it into the stream using a rocker motion to gradually flow the material over the mat.  The Banjo Pan is designed to automatically provide the correct angle for the mat to work properly.   When done processing carefully remove the mat and clean-out into the pan! Directions are on the back of the pan.

    Tub Flange small

    Connect multiple tubs for continuous circulation. The Vegetation kit’s PVC pipe slips into the Flanges to create a water tight seal between the tubs. The system leaves the tubs totally portable and nest-able. The Flange system is a must where gold is fine, water is scarce, and every drop counts!

    An ideal portable and contained small production system has a 3 tub sediment system (3 Tub Kit) using the tube flange to connect them together.  A very good system has a smaller tub inside a larger tub then one next to it connected by flanges (2 Tub Kit). For more information on this incredible product please check the Tub Flange Page.

    Blank Tray for Trommel

    The Gold Cube blank tray allows is perfect for mounting the Trommel and avoiding mounting onto the original water tray.  When you install the Trommel it usually goes on the Gold Cube water tray (the very top tray) but you can mount it also on a blank tray. This blank tray also is perfect for experimenting with other matting.
