Central Valley Prospector became a club in August of 2004. We are a not for profit Gold Club who's goal is to educate everyone on the history of the California Gold Rush, how to mine for gold, and how to use different types of equipment to get gold out of the ground. We host educational events at local schools for the 4th and 5th graders who are studying the California Gold Rush. We hold monthly club meetings and teach our members how to find and extract gold from the ground. We hold monthly outings to give our members hands on experience on getting the gold out of the ground.
