Week End Gold Miners Prospecting Club

Prospecting sites in the Heart of Georgia’s Gold Belt

Georgia – home of the first major gold rush in the United States!

Beginning with the discovery of gold in the 1820’s on what was then Cherokee Indian land, millions of dollars worth of raw gold was taken from the North Georgia mountains. Despite the countless number of miners that have passed through the area since then, gold is still being found on a regular basis by recreational miners today. Unfortunately, unlike the western states where public land abounds, virtually all of the gold-bearing property in Georgia is privately owned making access difficult for most individuals.

That’s where the Week End Gold Miners Prospecting Club can help. Our organization is a family-oriented, non-profit corporation that gives you a place to relax, prospect for gold, visit with other prospectors and most of all, have a good time in the outdoors. On each of the properties leased by the club, members and their families are encouraged to pursue one of many exciting hobbies. Each of the properties are very rich in GOLD, GEMSTONES, artifacts and the beautiful outdoors.

Your are warmly invited to explore our web site, become a member and take part in the fun we all share!

Here are just a few of the things you will experience as a member of the Weekend Gold Miners.

What’s the river called?

1 day ago

Man, I had a great day on the river with JP And Taylor Brown. Those guys are hilarious. I would have given a bunch of money to have to camera with me! I won’t get into details but it looked like one was enjoying it better than the other 😂. These two are gold sniffing dogs, they put me on the best gold I’ve ever had in my box and it wasn’t that hard to find it. I had been going about it all wrong and just wasting my time. Don’t believe everything you see on YouTube because Georgia is definitely definitely than California.

First cleanup on the river bank had me at 90 colors for just a 2 hr run. Second cleanup was 1 1/2 hours and I musta hit a pocket because on the cleanup I had 211 colors 🤩 😮. Finally it was getting dark and my final cleanup was a rush while I could still see, but was able to count 81 colors!

Thanks again guys for everything! I’ll be happy to dredge with you guys ANYDAY!!

I’ll post pics tomorrow!

This isn’t all of it. I’ve dredged for 9 days now and this is the past 3 days. The rest is mixed together in a cons bucket to take home and put through some different cleanup sluices I’m working on. ... See MoreSee Less

It was fun while it lasted but sometimes you have to return to reality. Was going to stay another week but the forecast doesn’t seem to like that idea 😆. Thanks again Jp & Taylor! ... See MoreSee Less

New utility patented Kreeger sluice. Next week I’ll be doing a video for loss analysis on 100-200 mesh from 1g AU in Hungarian black sand concentrates so you can see the results. Sets up and cleans up as easy as a drop riffle. m.youtube.com/watch?v=daH1AqgPVjQ ... See MoreSee Less
