Kevin, with over half a century of global experience, is a seasoned prospector and miner. Recognizing the value of education over mere execution early in his career, he committed himself to this mission. His dedication to training has played a pivotal role in the success of numerous gold prospectors and mining operations. His belief remains steadfast: Anyone with a desire to thrive in the gold industry should be equipped with the necessary knowledge.

The events are free to attend for anyone interested in learning how to prospect for gold.

Spend some time reviewing other GPAA member reviews on the get togethers that you are going to attend by utilizing the online property guide here, Learn a little bit about the area and mostly show up with an open mind and a desire to become a better prospector and willing to pay it forward. We will reach out to you prior to the event with meet-up details and everything else you need to know to be prepared.

Don’t forget your basics…. Bucket, pan, shovel, scoop, crevice tools or picks, classifier and a snuffer bottle. We will be putting together more final details closer to the date of the event that you choose, and you will be notified via email. 

Most GPAA claims are located on BLM land, which is generally open to dispersed camping for up to 14 days at a time.

Absolutely, gold has no idea where it is and the force that moves it. Prospecting and then mining is truly about learning how to see, not look at the ground differently.

Our founder George “Buzzard” Massie said to Kevin and a small group of GPAA Members, “There are three things that I want you to always make sure that you are doing, 1 make sure that our members always have a place to prospecting, 2 do everything in you power to help keep members informed and 3 (the most important to Kevin) is that at all times the GPAA is about Members helping Members to become better Prospectors”.
