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.

LOL. I’ve been to Turner when you were actually NOT there!

LoL 不. Who thinks you live there. Wait 1 guess不不不不不不不不不不

This is super funny because if we go and you arent there we say "wonder where james is??"

Quit acting like kids. If Anyone saw James they wouldn't know the difference. He's like the fixtures over there.

I think you all live there... lol

If I lived in a house like James I wouldn't be there . I would be playing hide an seek.

I drove 1000 miles, my buddy flew up from Florida, three days later we had to leave, Strange guest rule. always forget to ask before meeting

Nice house

I have always had great service from Keene

That is why I am glad to be a dealer for Keene! They have always taken care of anything I need for my customers!

I've been going to the keene,s shop in chatsworth for 40 years for everything I've ever needed and they were always great.!

Well I use to have at least 5 Keene dredges and after trying to order some parts they couldn’t get pat told me it wasn’t his problem and he had over 600 emails to check I decided it was time to sell my Keene dredges. I have since bought a proline and I have to say I wish I would have done a long time ago. The proline is very nice

I also bought a new 4” ultra box and there quality was terrible the wire cloth cut outs didn’t match were they needed too nor did they sit in properly.

All my mining equipment is keene the only thing I had is not keene is my trommel and it can from dahlonega from tam ray I talk to mark and pat keen a few times a week

Pat is hilarious to talk to. Good guy

If you want custom dredge mods call him

They are always very helpful

I bought my 4 inch and it's had the mat was cut crooked and I complain they never done anything about it..
