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.

I tried out Michael Whites

But Without a prewash I don't think it will do good at Turner. (Red Clay πŸ‘Ž

Only my opinion but I think the optimum equipment piece for Turner would be a trommel with a long cylinder being fed by a long trough type wash box dumping into a couple runs using different type mats. Prob a 3 inch pump as we ran my 9 foot long highbanker there and the 2.5 pump just lacked a little for something of that size.

Seems once the cups you’ll lose a lot??

Probably should have given more info. i am using a 800GPH pump with a 3/4 inch feed line. i am using a 1 1/4 inch discharge hose and a 3/4 suction line. using a 3/8 jet dont know if it will work but ill give it a try and see what happens

The high pressure line needs to be on about a 11 degree angle to the main tubing

Lee is right. Won’t work like that
