Rye Patch Nugget Shoot
This years Sixth Annual Nugget Shoot will be held on Saturday September 15, 2018 at the Rye Patch Reservoir State Park in Northern Nevada. This hunt will be put on with the GPAA of Northern Nevada and the Reno Prospecting and Detector Club, with major help from Rye Patch State Park and the much appreciated sponsors (Please consider being a sponsor of this event).
“The world’s largest free metal detector hunt”! Plan on a fun filled day of metal detecting with both adult and children hunts. There will be demonstrations and hands-on experiences in gold panning, dry washing, metal detecting and mineral identification, with various educational lectures from local experts and mining professionals. At 2017’s hunt, we awarded over $20,000 in prizes and this year we are hoping to meet or exceed this level! As you can see our event offers something for everyone.
Check out the 2016 Video that White’s Electronics did for this event! Can you imagine what 2018 is going to bring? Thanks again to our amazing sponsors!
