GPAA/LDMA Dirt Parties:

What is a “Digger’s Dirt Party: 5-Day Common Dig?”

Whether you’re just getting started in gold prospecting on the weekends or you’re a seasoned “sourdough” veteran in the dirt for years, the common dig operation, seminars, hands-on instruction and activities offered during these five-day events will help you get the “in the dirt” experience, fun and adventure for you and your whole family... plus some gold too!

Dirt Parties are much more than just recovering gold. It’s family and friendship! You will often hear the “ol timers” share their stories and experiences about “the club.” I’ll encourage you to partake, and listen at any camp campfire . . . the entertainment, history and knowledge is always a hoot! For more information call 800-551-9707.
