Great Starter Kit

The magazine is awesome and the pan and snuffer bottle are just what a new prospector needs to get started.

Al S. (House Springs, US)
New membership

So far I am very satisfied with the Membership package. I was happy to add the high quality black pan to my gear, i have 3 green ones already and think the color difference will help. Have not made it to any claims, very disappointed there is no active gpaa claims in Missouri but didn't expect it. Road trip review to follow

Love the nugget

A very nice nugget for joining.
Paydirt was fun to pan and rewarding.

Fast Delivery

I was surprised at how quickly the GPAA sent my membership cards and panning goodies! Looking forward to putting it all to use.

So awesome

Where can you be part of a group and have access to all the claims for so cheap plus ask all the questions you want, plus meetups, guidelines to help you find gold... I got all my questions answered and found gold at my first meet up... if I didn't run out of water I would have found a lot lot more and everyone apart of the group is super helpful and extremely friendly. So happy.
