Georgia Gold Rush Paydirt

What is paydirt? You might even be asking yourself, what does concentrated gold ore or pay dirt mean anyways? Well folks, that just means that we remove a lot of the dirt so you are guaranteed gold in every bucket. Our exclusive concentrated paydirt is mined just outside of Helen, Georgia in Dukes Creek, the site of the first major Gold Rush in America. Here at the Outpost, we offer several paydirt buckets to choose from. Each one varies in size and gold concentration, but are loaded with fun and excitement! They are perfect for any level of miner, from beginners up to seasoned prospectors. We recommend planning at least an hour or more for any the buckets below, especially for first timers. All of the equipment is provided.
