Special outing this weekend Saturday June 23rd and Sunday 24th at Eddie's Claim with Dave Rogers demonstrating metal detecting techniques. Also we will have a equipment sale of prospecting and camping equipment. Bring your old equipment that you would like to sell.
It's not too late to sign up. Come to the meeting this Thursday night to find out more details.
The wonderful people at New Mexico magazine featured GPANM in the July issue. They joined us on an outing in February to learn more about our organization as well as learn how to prospect for gold. The article explores the techniques and secrets about hunting for gold in New Mexico. They even found some color. We are so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of such a great community magazine. A special thanks goes out to Robert Julyan (writer), Minesh Bacrania (Photographer) http://www.bacrania.net/
