 History

"All that glitters is not gold"

This phrase comes from an old proverb dating back to ancient Roman times during the gold rush it referred to fools gold, which is bright and glittery in the pan, but is worth nothing. Today it means that even if something looks good, its possible that it’s not. 

Central Valley Prospectors is an Official Chapter of GPAA. You do not need to be a member of GPAA to join CVP and we charge no dues. We are a non-profit (501-c-3) small mining and prospecting club. CVP is dedicated to providing education and increased public awareness of prospecting and mining, as well as lots of fun. We own our own claims and provide outside programs for various groups. We welcome all ages, including families with children.

TIPS

There is no fixed rule for the location of the pay-streak on the stream bed. It is a case of cut and try. You should test carefully those places where there is indication of the stream widening out, or changing slightly its direction of flow.

Please note some of our menu items are no longer active. We will be doing our best to get these working as soon as possible.
