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.

Every group has drama queens. You’ll quickly learn there is a great core of people that are reliable and great mentors and friends. And you can find gold! And it’s only $20 a month!

Pros- I have found gold each time I visit a property and all the people I have met are very welcoming and willing to help you out or point you in the right direction. Cons-only 1 I have come up with but it’s more of a “me problem” is living 500 miles away from there.

Solution: Move closer ?

I’m a member of 23 years. Best people, and I also brought home gold…..every time. I live about 90 miles away. I’m there a lot.

I live 7 hours away I would drive it every week if I could I love everything about it and all the people I have met

Great group of people I camp two weeks every month and love it

Great people and good gold.

Perfect place to learn. Very nice areas to dredge or shovel distance is my issues also. If you live pretty close it's well worth it

Well I’ve heard about a motor being stole, someone staying in a camper that wasn’t theirs, that people don’t like you to bring your family with you

Where is the actual club based out of?

Dahlonega / Auraria Ga Aka knucklesville

Yeah I’m just trying to get a feel for the place ..

Sure I’ve heard of equipment being stolen. In 23 years in the club it has only happened a few times. I served as an officer of the club during most of my 23 years of membership. I would have heard if it had happened more. We concluded that this was not done by members. The area floods during big storms. Sometimes the equipment, if left near the banks are washed downstream. This has also happened. Sometimes it is found downstream. Family is always welcome. We encourage you to bring your family members and children. We built the club as family oriented.

If you are having any problems with things missing please put up more field cameras so we can catch people

My only issue has been that I don’t run powered equipment, ricer dredge, high banker etc. Being a pan and shovel, 24” sluice kinda guy I don’t feel like I’m finding anything like the people who dredge are finding. Perhaps I don’t know the turner camp well enough ?

Great group of people I am a life time member that looks forward to retiring to enjoy camp more
