A great resource for prospecting is The Mohave Prospectors Association. Their organization is devoted to the search for GOLD. They currently have over 300 acre’s of Gold bearing prospecting claims that you can search on as a member.
Meeting’s are the 1st Tuesday of each month and all are invited to attend, join and participate in the meetings. They also hold monthly outings, have occasional campouts and other types of functions.
As a club member you will have an opportunity to learn to drywash desert soil for Gold, use metal detectors and other type’s of prospecting methods. You may also run across an occasional meteorite. The club has a variety of equipment that can be borrowed on a weekly basis to try out your new endeavor.
Annual dues are $35.00 for new members and $25.00 per year thereafter. This is for a family membership.
