New to the CVP Site!

We have added a few new features to the CVP site!

The Gallery is slowly being updated with current and historical pictures of outings by members! If you have pictures of your outings you want to share contact Bob or Denise to get them added!

We now have an Education link which houses our Educational outing information. In addtion you can find:

  • Education - discusses our primary purpose as a chapter of GPAA. Want to volunteer to help teach kids about prospecting, take a look!
  • Prospecting History- NEW! We will periodically be posting a piece of Prospecting History! Our current entry is about Coulterville! Please keep an eye out for updates!
  • Mining Safety - has been moved into the educational section of the site for a better fit!


Ensure that you are up to date on your GPAA dues.
