VEGAS GOLD SHOW! NEXT WEEKEND! 4/25 – 4/26

If you haven’t been to a Gold Show you’re missing out! They are a ton of fun, and I’ve only been to the small one in Pamona, CA. I hear the Vegas show is spectacular!

So who else wants a bag of pay-dirt to pan every month??

Ok guys. I don’t know about you, but my wife is really into subscription boxes. She has them for snacks, flowers, cosmetics, jewelry; even the dog gets one every month. So I finally found one for that prospecting guy (or gal) like me. The “Dirt of The Month Club” from Roaring Camps in Pine Grove, CA. Imagine, a bag of pay-dirt right to your door…every month. Just ready to pan. 🙂

Check out the full story HERE. You can also visit Roaring Camps and do your own prospecting if you’re in the area. See their info page.

Good luck!

GPAA: Gold Prospectors to Host Gold & Treasure Show in Pomona, Calif. Feb. 7-8

Gold FlyerThe GPAA Gold & Treasure Shows, which are open to the public, were started decades ago by GPAA founder George Massie to introduce people to gold prospecting and to teach them how and where to find their own gold. Besides being a lot of fun, the purpose of the gold shows is to remind everyone that gold prospecting and small-scale gold mining are still a way of life for hundreds of thousands of people across the United States. Gold mining is an integral part of American culture, heritage, world history and our economy.
