Here we have an Australian brand Gold Sieve set, made from Aluminium which should last you for years.
I still have my first set that i purchased from this company back in 2011.
These light weight Sieves are perfect for hiking in, reducing sample size in a pan and for resting your water pump pickup on when recirculating water to keep leaves and grass out of your pump.
1/8th mesh or 8 mesh is the perfect size to screen down to when panning for gold, anything that hold up above the 8 mesh sieve should be discarded carefully upside down so as to inspect for heavies like gemstones or gold.
The 1/4 mesh or quarter inch is perfect for shaking those oversize stones and debris out of your sample early.
I've owned plastic sieves, stainless sieves and these aluminium sieves and they are the only sieves that still haven't rusted at all.
