Today, there is actually more gold to find than the old-timers found way back in the 1800’s gold rush era. Gold prospecting and treasure hunting has become a very popular and family oriented hobby. At these shows there is something for just about everyone to do in their search for that elusive gold and treasure.
Fun for the Whole Family. Whether young, old, or somewhere in the middle, the excitement of unearthing your first spec of gold is something that you're not soon to forget. The Gold and Treasure expos are great opportunities to experience that level of excitement first hand. Spread out amongst the vendors are panning troughs for both kids and adults where you can learn skills and techniques used by the best in the business to uncover a healthy amount of gold.
Thousands of Dollars in Prizes. Metal detectors, pans, sluice boxes, you name it! Each day, thousands of dollars in door prizes are given away. All you have to do is show up and you could be leaving with a brand new piece of top of the line prospecting equipment. It really is that easy!
Connect. Find a chapter close to you, make new friends, keep in touch with old ones! Each show has a handful of local chapters for you to connect with and join to have a "family" of your own to go prospecting with!
Learn • Explore • Shop. Rub elbows with some of the best prospectors in the business and learn key prospecting techniques as they host seminars throughout the day. Browse the show floor and get your hands on the latest and greatest in prospecting equipment. With dozens of vendors and hundreds of items, you're sure to find something you'll want to take into the field with you.
