About Us


Our background.….

We are a registered non-profit club in the State of Nevada.

Our primary goal is to educate the public on the various methods of recreational prospecting and looking for GOLD without disrupting the balance of nature.

Contrary to the myth, the locating and recovery of that seemingly elusive yellow metal – GOLD – does not have to destroy what nature has created.

We enjoy going to various schools, camps, and business outings to teach people how to pan for GOLD. At the various school and camp outings, we do not charge for our service, and all of the GOLD that we use to teach all people is REAL GOLD . . . and they get to keep it!

We also do various fairs and town doings such as Windows into History and Truckee Railroad Days, both held in Truckee, California.

The character you see above is ‘Jackass Charlie’. He became our logo many years ago and watches over us wherever we go.

We are based in Reno, Nevada with regular monthly meetings – 4th Tues every month.
