This chapter is for the everyday Prospector!  A place to share your adventures, results, and to ask questions and to learn from others.  Gold Fever of the West Valley is a proud Chapter of the GPAA, the Gold Prospectors Association of America.  We strive to be full of positivity, integrity, and most importantly, where members’ voices are heard loud and clear.  You, our members, are what makes our chapter successful!  Gold Fever of the West Valley is open to the public and children are always welcome.  Please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts on ways to introduce our future generations to the joys of prospecting!  Gold Fever of the West Valley serves GPAA members from Glendale, Surprise, Peoria, Buckeye, Avondale, Tolleson, Morristown, Wickenburg, El Mirage and Phoenix, Arizona.  

The GFWV is a Arizona Non-Profit Educational Corporation and we are working on our Federal 501c3 Status.  The Mission statement of the GFWV is to strive to educate the general public, our members and their families, about the fun of prospecting, metal detecting and the conservation of our mining claims and public lands.  There are mentors available for prospective members and their families to learn about each of the different aspects of prospecting and exploration!
