Object Name Pan, Miner's
Description Prospector's gold pan.

From WordIQ.com: The simplest technique of placer gold mining is panning. In panning, some sediment is placed in a large metal pan, combined with a generous amount of water, and agitated so that the sand flows over the side. Any gold particles contained in the sand will, due to their much higher density, tend to remain in the bottom of the pan after all of the sand and mud have been removed.
