Our purpose is to provide an environment for both members and visitors to
become more knowledgeable about the ecologically safe recovery of
gold and gems from our public lands that are open to mineral entry.
Also to teach each other about equipment use and methods as well as
keeping up with the ever changing mining and prospecting laws.
Check out our Announcement section for upcoming outings that are
held at various GPAA claims and public access areas.
You’re welcome to come to one of our outings and learn how to
dry wash, nugget shoot, sluice, and pan for gold.
Come to one of our meetings and you may win a gold nugget or
a handy prospecting/camping item from our raffle table.
Stop in some Saturday morning and say “Hi”, until then good luck prospecting.
