"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.
There is a fairly common misconception about a trap or catch-that it must run across a creek. This is not true! Any truly successful sniper or dredger will tell you that they get some of their best gold out of crevices which run the same direction as the stream. Crevices like this that have a tight “V” shaped bottom and have rocks tightly jammed into them, form a natural sluice box.
Please note some of our menu items are no longer active.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.
