    Hello Folks-I'm curious-I asked this of the HQ members, but no reply. That's ok, they're busy--but I'd like to know.

    What is the difference in the GMAA and the LDMA? I see events that are attended by both groups. The LD costs $4800 and the GMAA costs $155 for 3 years. I don't understand the relationship. Are the claims the same? What's the deal. Should I join the LDMA? Are the claims in the Mining Guide the same for both groups? Which is better?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have no idea what the GMAA is.

    The GPAA (Gold Prospectors Association of America) has the claims in the Mining Guide which I believe all need to be renewed each year.

    I understand the LDMA actually owns the land their claims are on.

    All claims are governed by local county and state laws, even California which has illegally
    ignored Federal Mining Laws.

    I think both groups were started by Massie.

    The LDMA is over priced, but they do make it somewhat painless to join by the low automatic monthly payments available(which includes the GPAA).

    Since I seem to have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, and there's definitely plenty in these groups, I'll hang around for a while. Hopefully I'll gain some wisdom as well, eventually.



    Good luck
