Five Days of Fun and GOLD Mining
The Arizona Gold Mining Adventure has been a long kept secret known only to a very few people who truly enjoy GOLD prospecting and especially GOLD mining. It's been a hit with all including celebrities who demand their privacy while enjoying the Old West. When the word started getting out and others expressed a desire to participate we've decided to open up the adventures for others to enjoy as well. Arizona Gold Mining Adventures are held at the Paydirt Mining Company commercial placer GOLD mining operation located in the GOLD rich San Domingo Placers area southeast of the city of Wickenburg and north of Morristown Arizona.
Your Arizona Gold Mining Adventure will consist of a total of five great fun-filled GOLDen days beginning on a Monday and ending on Friday. On your first day you will get your accommodations situated and you will participate in group professional GOLD prospecting lessons with emphasis on Dry Washing for GOLD in the desert. During the next 4 days you will help set up and run a real commercial placer GOLD mining operation. On the fifth day after lunch we will shut down the operation, clean up the equipment and SPLIT ALL THE GOLD found at the operation! Everyone attending the Arizona Gold Mining Adventure the full 5 days will receive an equal split of the GOLD found on their 5 days of participation. A "blind drawing" will be held so everyone has an equal chance to get any one of the GOLD shares. In the case of large nuggets a seperate drawing will be held. Please note that there is a strict limit of 10 paid participants during each Mining Adventure! This helps increase the share of GOLD each participant will receive at the end of the Adventure during the GOLD split and after 5 days of prospecting and commercial mining this can be a nice amount of GOLD, especially with today's GOLD prices. Both individuals, couples and groups are welcome to participate. Be sure and get your share of the GOLD and sign up for the Arizona GOLD Mining Adventure.
AAGP MEMBERS GOLD DIGS
The AAGP also has GOLD Digs for AAGP members only. These are decided upon at the monthly AAGP meetings and they are then announced on the website at AAGP Club GOLD Dig. There are many benefits for members to participate in these club digs as it helps you learn where the claims are and also where the GOLD on the claims can be found. It's like having a lot of prospectors helping you to find the GOLD! So be sure to come to the meetings and help get the next club dig up and running and then sign up to make sure you're included. AAGP Club Digs are free to all members!
