Pro-Camel Spiral Gold Panning Machines

If you’ve ever had to pan buckets and buckets of concentrates by hand, you know how much work it is, how much time it takes, and especially how much your legs and back ache when you’re done.

What you don’t realize, is how much gold you’re loosing!

Even a seasoned gold panner is going to miss some gold when panning by hand, especially if the concentrates are heavy with black sand. So for the beginner or average panner, the odds of washing some of the gold out of the pan are even higher. Let’s face it, loosing some gold while panning by hand is simply a fact of panning and something we should expect.

This is why Automatic Spiral Gold Panning Machines are so popular today.

  • They ease the burden of panning by hand by doing all of the hard work for you and doing it the same way over and over again.
  • They allow you to process significantly more material in much less time.
  • They increase your gold recovery effectiveness by a factor of 50. That means you will recover 50 times more gold than you would working by hand with a traditional gold pan.

The first Automatic Spiral Gold Panning Machine was introduced to the public over 40 years ago, back in 1969, by the pioneer and inventor of the Spiral Panning Machine, Angus Niccolls, who also founded Camel Mining Products, Inc. This first machine was called the Little Camel and was an instant hit with the small mining community. It was small, light weight, portable, used a 12 volt battery for power, and only needed three gallons of water to operate. Over time, the design was improved and it grew into what is known today as the Desert Fox which is the #1 selling Automatic Spiral Gold Panning Machine on the market.

Though the Desert Fox does a great job recovering gold, it is limited to the amount of material it can process (about 70 pounds of concentrates an hour). This limitation, along with a cry from the mining community for something bigger, gave way to a new Automatic Spiral Gold Panning Machine called the Pro-Camel. This new machine, though much bigger than the Desert Fox, still effectively operates using a 12 volt battery, but can process an incredible 400 pounds of placer sand an hour using the 24″ wheel. That’s a 471% increase in processing power and with a newly designed 2-stage spiral wheel, the gold recovery is even better.

The Pro-Camel Automatic Gold Panning Machine is available with two different wheel sizes (18″ & 24″). Everything else about the machine is the same, so you can use the different wheels on the same drive unit.

  • The 18″ Model has a white wheel and is available for delivery worldwide for $695 + shipping & handling

  • The 24″ Model has a blue wheel and is available for delivery worldwide for $895 + shipping & handling
