Recover MORE GOLD with the Pro-Camel 18 Gold Panning Machine!
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.
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 18″ wheel. That’s a 471% increase in processing power and with a newly designed 2-stage spiral wheel, the gold recovery is even better.
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.

History of the Pro-Camel
The Pro-Camel 18 (18″ Spiral Wheel) is the big brother of the Desert Fox and the largest 12-volt automatic spiral gold panning machine manufactured anywhere. It was introduced to the mining community in 2009 and has received rave reviews since its release and is known as one of the top fine gold recovery systems on the market today.
Why Does The Pro-Camel Work So Well?
The Pro-Camel uses the same basic technology of gold separation as a traditional gold pan: Water, Motion, & Gravity. Because gold is so much heavier than the other material that it’s found with, it can be easily separated from like sized material.
With a traditional gold pan, you create a slurry of water and material mixing it well to allow the gold to drop down to the bottom of the pan. You then slowly & carefully wash off the lighter material by dipping the edge of the pan in the water.
