“The first time I heard the name Chicken I laughed. I didn’t believe there could really be such a place…green as goose grass and full of lofty ideals, off I went, thinking to myself as a lamp unto the wilderness.”
—excerpt from “Tisha” as told by Robert Specht
OMG! 2020 is going to be a gold pounding quest where more people will have the chance to participate in the Gold Prospectors Association of America (GPAA) and Lost Dutchman’s Mining Association (LDMA) National events.
Do you have what it takes to gear up and help Kick Some . . . Open a Can of Whoop . . . participate? You will walk away with GOLD!
Have you been dreaming about mining for some serious gold? Using BIG equipment to run more material? Here is your chance! Get ready for a week-long gold adventure (or do multiple weeks) with experienced gold prospectors to guide you to wild unearthed riches. This Expedition is set in the heart of an Arizona Motherlode. The desert area is rich in gold and beauty.
Back in the 1860’s, just outside of LDMA Stanton Camp, is the famous “Rich Hill” that stands so picturesque. The base below the mountain was an area that gold nuggets the size of potatoes were being unearthed. This area, the basin, was dubbed “the Potato Patch.”
How would you feel if you were running good gold bearing material, and not getting any pickers when you are in material known to have pickers? The material tests proved it only days before. Now, the fines were great, but where did the pickers go?
