The "Batea" is rumoured to be created the the ancient Mayan Indian civilization. The early ones were carved from wood and were used to pan gold, diamonds, emeralds, rubies and gemstones. Anything heavier than common sand and gravel could be panned with a Batea. It is believed the Egyptians and Chinese adapted a simular style of pan for their own use based from Mayan design.
Fast forward to the 21st century and Batea pans have been proven to process a lot of material FAST!
