For the gold panning enthusiast, we have a special treat this year. This high quality sluice box, valued at $232, is available as a raffle item. You can buy your raffle tickets, $2 apiece or 3 for $5:

This is a great opportunity to score a modern and authentic item that our 49er miners would have loved to have!
