What Is a Membership?

Congratulations! You have just found the largest gold prospecting organization in the world.
A Gold Prospectors Association of America membership gives you an edge as a prospector; whether you are new to gold prospecting or have been prospecting for decades.

Access to Claims

Gain access to hundreds of claims provided by the GPAA. Our claims span across the United States. That means there are probably one or more claims near you. The Mining Guide gives details about each claim, so you can start prospecting.


The ability to connect with the GPAA community may very well be the best benefit of membership.  The fellowship experienced at a GPAA event or through joining a chapter is beyond compare.  Membership also grants you full, unlimited access to the features of the GPAA website.  Most notably, members are able to post and converse on the Online Mining Guide and GPAA Forum and view special members only areas.
