Our Association The Western Colorado Chapter of the GPAA has a chapter contract with Gold Prospectors of America and goes by the rules and regulations set forth by them. We meet the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at 115 W. Main Street, Olathe, CO. At our meetings, we do club business, have discussions, presentations, and demonstrations. Come early and catch Gold Fever with us. The claims used by the club belong to members of the club and are not GPAA claims and are NOT listed in the GPAA Claims Guide. Only “Members in Good Standing” are allowed to work the private claims.
To become a “Member in Good Standing” you have to attend 3 consecutive monthly meetings and help at one of the gold shows held during the year. You can then purchase a badge for $1.50 which covers your family and must be with you at all times when you are on the claims.The term “recreational prospector” does not apply to prospecting and says to authorities you are not a serious prospector and are not covered by the mining laws. The terms you need to use to identify your activity include: small mining operator, minerals prospector, professional prospector, or any term indicating your activities are for profit not pleasure. What we doWe have monthly meetings, have a booth at various rock and gem shows, do fundraisers for a charity, and have outings to educate various methods of gold prospecting. Gold Shows – We have a booth at the Grand Junction Gem Show in May, the Delta Rock and Gem show in June, and Delta Heritage Days in June to promote our club. .
