      @ Doug Johnson --- About seasoning the pan, it couldn't hurt to give it a good cleaning to remove the release agent coating the pans surface (a by-product of the manufacturing process so that the pan does not stick to the mold). The other reason for seasoning is that all the other pans out there have s smooth surface (unlike the gold claw) and roughing it up helps small gold to stick. When you are done seasoning, water should Not bead up on the pans surface. Remember to use oil free soap for this process.

      Hello there!
      I have a problem -it seems that I have received a starter kit without the pan... I was convinced that I have purchased the right one but apparently I paid 35 US dollars and that's with shipping. Is there any chance to paid extra and get the pan? The real reason I bacekd the project was the pan.. Regards,

      I would like to know how can I track my package? Since this is an international delivery, I need to know if I have any problems with that.

      Thanks the pan looks GREAT! I got the clear one. I panned the bottle of dirt and got 12 small pieces of gold. It does go a lot faster the regular type of gold pan! Thanks again. :-)

    8. Steven McGovern on

      Should we all have received our pans by now? I've still not received any tracking info or the actual package. Keeping my fingers crossed.

      Thanks, just received my Gold Claw pan (the transparent one) it looks GREAT! Haven't panned the dirt that came with it yet. Been raining and waiting for a sunny day. Thanks again for a GREAT product!

      Should we season the gold claw pan like they tell us to do to the regular gold pans? Like this video? Thanks…

      @GoldClaw, I received my pans today and tried them out with your "pay dirt". This pan is the easiest pan I've ever used. After screening out the bigger rocks/pebbles, the pan was better able to work the black sand quickly. Thanks. This was a great pan and I'm planning another trip just for panning with a Gold Claw.

      Thank you all for the great comments, this is exciting! So far everything is coming together! I'm excited to see the starter kit samples next week and possibly get the mold assembled and ready for first article!

      It should be interesting to see how well this product works first hand. My parents are planning a trip to Alaska next summer and I believe the Gold Claw is going with them.

      Wow! I almost want to cry, because for years I have thought about how I could find the gold nuggets that are so plentiful in the mountains of Utah. Now I have a source and I know what my family will be getting in the future!

    17. Douglas Liebert on

      Wow! Wasn't sure you were going to make it there for a while. Glad to see this will make it to production. Can't wait to try this out.

      Thanks Tracey Bentz and Anthony! We only need $549 more to go with 5 hoursl left. Let's hope others do the same. It was figured that if backers were to pledge $2 more, we will meet and exceed the goal. Just saying...

    37. Missing avatar


      I pledge $50 so hopefully the goal will be reached.

      I increased also. I sure hope this works efficiently with the micro gold in my area...

      I've increased my pledge...let's help meet this goal people.

      Henry: With only seven hours we have no currently physically planed bonuses (the pay dirt is the bonus). But we're currently considering the idea of giving all supporters a code-based coupon to use for a discount on our storefront when it's up and running (thanks to the Kickstarter support!) that they can give to friends & family to make use of, or keep to for themselves to use later.

      But we're only just about $700 away! I don't think that's very much at all, and by my estimates we should complete our goal.

      If you would like to up your pledge and get another pan just in case it funds (you aren't charged if it doesn't go through, of course), you are more than welcome to. If not, we're appreciative of your support thus far!

      Need some kind of bonus to motivate the backers to increase their pledges

    42. Michael Gilberg on

      I increased mine to 2 a few hours ago. Let's go backers, get one for the spouse and/or kids and get them panning!!!!!

      We have only $1515 to go before the campaign is funded. With only 11 hours left we will need 30.3 people to pledge at the $50 to be funded or if we all (331 backers) increase our pledge by $4.58 it will be funded.

      The founder of American Prospector visited yesterday morning to see it for himself. He was so impressed that he cam back late yesterday to make a video about it. Once he posts it I will share.
