    Hello everyone!

    I am new to gold prospecting and I just joined GPAA. I am having troubles finding some information so I decided to ask few questions here.

    1. Where can I find digital copy of GPAA Claims Club Mining Guide? (I got monthly subscription because I don't know how long I will do prospecting)
    2. I received welcome email with Official GPAA Membership Card. In description it says "Your membership card/permit is below.". Am I supposed to print it and take with me? Is this card enough to access properties?
    3. I'm from San Diego, CA and it says nearest prospecting property is Himalaya Mine, but there are no GPS coordinates or directions. Who may know details of that property? (Other 2 San Diego properties have GPS coordinates)
    4. Are there any residency restrictions? Can I do gold prospecting while not being US citizen (I am permanent resident)?

    Thank you for reading this thread :)

    1. Apparently mining guide is a list of properties https://www.goldprospectors.org/Properties/MemberActivity (I thought it is more like a rule book)

    Still not sure if membership card from email is enough and whether I need separate permit card.

    Welcome Serhiy,

    Online guide is under the properties button on the GPAA header above
    You should have received from GPAA, a box with sticker, patch, mining guide ect, there should have been a page with your club member ship AND a mining permit
    that is to be carried when on a GPAA claim. I have never been asked for either, but do carry them with my mining guide hard copy.
    Properties that do not list GPS concordances are privet properties that may or may not allow mining, but places of interest
    No restrictions on residency that I have ever heard of or read of

    Thank you Bill! I was actually at GOLD PROSPECTORS 1, 2 & WARRIOR at the moment when you replied :)
    Parking lot was closed, trail overgrown, found many ticks on me. I'd be very surprised to meet someone there checking for membership card.
