It Really Fits in Your Pocket
It Really Fits in Your Pocket

 

Gold Claws new Game-Changing technology

  • Traditional pans require years of experience 
  • With the Pocket Pan, no experience is needed 
  • The Pocket Pan uses Gold Claw DIGS technology 
  • Technology built into the pan catches gold for you
  • Shaking the pan makes the paydirt flow out in a thin layer 
  • Features in the Pocket Pan catch the gold as the dirt flows out

Testimonials from Original Gold Claw Customers:  

  • "My ancestors joined the Australian gold rush in 1850 ... I think it's the biggest advance I have seen in 50 years" J.B. Australian in U.K
  • "The Gold Claw burned through the clay in 15 seconds and down to black sand in another 30 seconds! Needless to say, everyone wanted to know where they could get one, including the Gold Mine Owner … I will never go back to the "old fashioned pan" again!" S.P. USA
  • 2000 years of panning changed like magic and it really really works! J.G. Canada

The Pocket Pan is the newest addition to the innovative Gold Claw gold pans

How it Works:  

Shaking and tilting under water puts just enough energy into the paydirt to make it gently flow out like a liquid (liquefaction). As the paydirt flows out of the Pocket Pan the gold is caught by high-tech features engineered into the Pocket Pan. 

Although designed for professionals, the real breakthrough is for people without experience panning gold. This technology creates a new paradigm for people who have always wanted to experience the magic that comes from finding gold. Now anyone can do it!

Design and Development: 

I honestly thought that with the gold pan evolving over the ages that all good inventions had been patented by now. It turns out there were more inovations to be had. 

In the past panning for gold was more technique than science. With Gold Claw, panning is now more science than technique. We went through exhaustive experimentation and prototyping.

You will also receive Paydirt with Real Gold!

To make this an easy decision and to ensure your success we are shipping a 1oz container of actual paydirt to every backer with Real Gold in it!

  • There is nothing that acts like GOLD
  • Practicing on anything else is not the same. 
  • Practicing on paydirt before you go out gives confidence, you'll know you're panning right
  • Practice paydirt can be used over and over to refine your skills (tip Get a scoop of dirt from a local stream and mix in your gold, every type of gravel acts differently).

Paydirt is gravel that contains GOLD! Each backer will receive a resealable 1 oz container with pay dirt having typically 5 to 10 flakes of Real Gold in it.

Color Options

To start we have a blue Pocket Pan available to everyone, as our funding goes higher we will be able to offer more colors. Each color we make available represents additional inventory that will cost more to have on hand. Now that we have funded our stretch goal is $25k, as we get closer to the $25k we will make available additional colors to choose from, including: Clear, Purple, Green, and more. We are looking forward to your input on colors you would like to see.

Join in to help create memorable adventures for all. 

Our goal at Gold Claw is for anyone to be able to experience the joy of catching gold and enter this amazing world.  

We need your help to get the new Pocket Pan mold built and inventory made and shipped out to everyone. 

Thank you for your help and interest in the amazing new Pocket Pan.  

Please share this Kickstarter on Facebook, Twitter, and everywhere you can to help get the word out and make this possible.

Special thanks to all those who supported our earlier Kickstarter campaigns, you made all this possible. Without you all we would not have made it this far!

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is a low-risk project.

We are making a new mold and our mold maker is very good. The only significant risk is time. If something goes wrong during the process the tool maker will have to redo the defective part, slipping the schedule.
