Mark Peterson is the entrepreneur behind Gold Rush Nugget Bucket. His gold panning kit includes everything you and your family need to find gold — including screens, funnel, scoopers and a clean-up kit (tweezers, gold vial, black sand magnet, and suction bottle). In 2015, Peterson pitched his business on Shark Tank and got an investment from Robert Herjavec ($60k for 25 percent).
Gold Rush Nugget Buckets now come in three colors – Yellow, Desert Camo, and Desert Pink – and are sold for $99.95 each. Extra accessories including a Metal Folding Shovel ($19.95) and Gold Pick Rock Hammer ($24.95) are sold separately. Gold Rush Nugget Buckets also available on Amazon, where you can also find the helpful book The New Gold Panning Is Easy by Roy Lagal.
