Thanks for visiting our site.  We are a chapter of a larger organization called Gold Prospectors Association of America.  If you are not familiar with the GPAA, take a minute and visit their website to get an idea what they are all about.

I’m sure you’re wondering why a gold prospecting club in Illinois.  Illinois certainly is not known for its rich gold supplies.  Well, just because the gold isn’t here, doesn’t mean the interest isn’t!

At this point, we are a diverse group, from the novice to the old-timer, just interested in learning about gold and gold prospecting, and eager to share what we do know.  We plan to hold monthly meetings to get to know each other a little better and continue our growth in the field of prospecting.

We have a few outings scheduled and more to come. We are always looking for more places to go in  Michigan, Iowa, Indiana or perhaps the shores of Lake Michigan are possible locations to get out-of-doors and do some real prospecting.

If you have any interest in becoming a part of our organization or if you have any questions for us, please go to our Membership page and send us your information.

As time goes on, we plan to develop our website further offering much more information on gold prospecting.

Again, thanks for stopping by our site and feel free to check out our Google Group!
