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.

Got these in Georgia....

I’ve found small nuggets detecting at Turner. I’ve seen nice size nuggets come out the river

Nah.... No nuggets found here🀫 πŸ€₯πŸ€ͺ🀣 I heard NC has bigens over there πŸ‘‰

Tammy has some pretty good ones at her store

A Garrett 200 metal detector picks up flour gold we have in a glass vial. A tiny amount too.. so Id say metal detecting works.

I’m detecting in western nc near Rutherford county
