CANCELLED – GPAA Gold and Treasure Show
May 2, 2020 - May 3, 2020
GPAA Gold and Treasure Show
May 2-3, 2020
The Gold Prospectors Association of America’s (GPAA) Gold & Treasure Shows were initially conceived to introduce the public to the local prospecting community. Each event presents a unique opportunity where local chapters, state directors, land rights advocates, leading industry manufacturers, dealers and experts come together to welcome a new audience pursuing an interest in gold prospecting. Each show will feature close to 100’ of panning troughs loaded with more than three ounces of gold. The panning zone is a show favorite and a great experience for kids ages 4 to 94 to learn and refine proper panning skills from some of the best gold miners around. The best part – keep everything you find! The fun doesn’t stop there – every show day wraps up with the Major Prize Raffle where we give away around $5,000 in prizes ranging from metal detectors to prospecting adventures. A raffle ticket is included with every paid admission, and more are available for purchase at the prize booth. All raffle ticket proceeds go to benefit local GPAA chapters. Got your eye on a new piece of mining equipment? The GPAA Gold & Treasure Shows are the best place to pick up that new dredge, high banker, sluice box, gold pan, you name it. Learn everything there is to know about mining equipment straight from the manufacturer. Plus, you’ll find some “can’t be beat” show pricing, not available anywhere else. Also included with admission is the Gold & Treasure Show Seminar Series. From basic to advanced prospecting and mining techniques, the seminar series is hosted by some of the most knowledgeable prospectors and geologists in the country. Time: Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm; Sunday, 10 am – 4 pm
