Everyone knows what a “pan" is, but what about “pan out"?

This phrase means to work out or to get a good result. The origin of the phrase is connected to the gold rush. The pan refers to a sifting pan where dirt and gravel is washed out to reveal the heavier gold that is left behind. Gold prospectors in the California Gold Rush used sifting pans in creeks to sift out the gold. That’s why now people use “pan out" to indicate something working out.
