Do you want quality ores on-the-go while adventuring in Stardew Valley? Not in the mood for mining? Don’t worry. Copper Pan is your answer, and we’ll let you know what riches you can get from the tool!
In Stardew Valley, you can’t always trade your time and effort for copper ores and chunks of stone. Although it’s one of the most efficient and obvious ways, it won’t work for some players. Thankfully, all it takes is a basin, and you don’t have to dig deeper.
Minerals, gems, and many more riches hide beneath Pelican Town’s soil. A few Pickaxe upgrades can make the difference and could even save your life! However, does it still matter for the time-consuming journey with bad luck?
Extra loots count, and this helpful tool can add an advantage. What’s with the pan, how to get it, and what riches can you get from panning? We’ll also include tips that’ll be indispensable for your looting!

The Copper Pan in a Nutshell
A Copper Pan is an ore-gathering tool (and other items) available in Stardew Valley. Watch out for shimmering lights in a body of water, as that’s where you can start panning! The process is similar to swinging a Scythe or any weapon, needing no energy.
How to Get the Pan?
Unfortunately, the Joja route is more expensive than Willy’s free offer (or 2500g if lost). Yet, purchasing saves time and the trouble of catching every fish in Stardew Valley. It’s up to you whether or not you’ll get the cutscene or straight panning – there’s no bad option.
Loots from Panning
Now that you have the tool, you can start collecting by left-clicking to any bodies of water with the shimmer. You’ll get essential resources for starters, including ores, stones, and random gems. However, the items you’ll get will differ if you’re on Ginger Island, where fossils are abundant, unlike the valley.
Nonetheless, here’s a complete table to show you what items you can get with their selling prices:
While panning resources straight from rivers isn’t the most productive and lucrative, they still have obvious uses. You can earn situational money from crafting and building to gifting to item delivery.
Copper Pan Tips
Aside from common forage items, you can follow green arrows that’ll lead you to the place. Unfortunately, they rarely appear, and the treasure you get isn’t worthwhile. Wearing lucky rings, consuming lucky food items, getting the Special Charm, and checking the TV will help.
Lastly, bringing extra pans and leaving them near the source can help you save an inventory slot. Since the shimmering lights spawn more on the Dig Site at Ginger Island, it’s the best place to keep an extra in case.
