Originally aired: Tuesday, May 3, 2011
Brawn pulled out his favorite finishing pan, dumped an ore bag in a trough of water and provided a gold panning demonstration right inside the store, explaining that "gold is 19 times heavier than water so it sinks really fast and when it gets on the bottom (of the pan) it stays." After a few minutes, you could see the flecks of shiny ore in the bottom of his pan. "Badda Bing, there's your gold, it's that easy," said Brawn.
