Welcome to New Mexico's first and oldest gold prospecting organization!
If you are looking for an active gold prospecting organization, where you can learn and engage in serious gold prospecting, then the Gold Prospectors Association of New Mexico (GPANM) may be for you. Here at GPANM our members have access to numerous claims around the state, including several only 45 minutes from Albuquerque. Our mission is to allow our members access to profitable mining claims. We often have monthly outings that encourage members to be active gold prospectors, with an emphasis on sharing knowledge and tips on gold prospecting. We pride ourselves on being good stewards of the land and good neighbors to fellow claim and property owners. Come to our next meeting and join in on the experience!
