Yesterday I picked up my first gold pan and classifier, I decided I really wasn’t into plastic, so I wanted my equipment to be “ye olde timey” and therefore metal, and I had seen a lot of videos about the batea pan, and I had seen there was a local supplier in Christchurch.
Shoutout to Mark Sutton of Sutton Engineering you can find him on trademe https://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Listings.aspx?member=1368997
So I got a 415mm Dia 65mm deep batea pan and a 9mm classifier to match $25 for the pan and $24 for the classifier.
I also found a small pick (size of a rock hammer) that I liked
It used to be a welding slag hammer, I have cleaned it up and I think it will do fine.
