Welcome to the web home for the Colorado Springs chapter of the GPAA

A Message from the President
Greetings Fellow Prospectors

ATTENTION Members and Guests: 

The 2016 Memorial Day Outing to Derry Ranch Placer on Lake Creek outside Buena Vista has been cancelled for lack of attendance.  Also, the location of the outing which is on private property owned by Mr. Dennis O’Neill, is no longer available for individual pay-to-dig prospecting.  Mr. O’Neill has leased the mining/prospecting rights to Colorado Gold Camp (CGC).  For this year’s outing, we had a pending contract with CGC; however, due to the small number of members expressing an intent to attend this event, the costs to the club would have been prohibitive.  Individual access to the property is still permitted with a membership in CGC.  For additional information, please see their website:  coloradogoldcamp.com; or call Daimis at 970-409-0333.

ALTERNATE Memorial Day Weekend Outing:

The Chapter will be doing exploratory prospecting on Fountain Creek in Fountain, and Manitou Springs, during the Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-30.  Details will be provided on this website as available and by e-mail for those on the Chapter e-mail list.  For additional details, contact Chapter VP Doug Hirdler, 320-630-4355.
