The elections are now over and Jerry and I were reelected to our positions. We thank you for your support. There are a number of events that we will be doing this year that will take the place in lieu of the gold shows that other organizations like to do. And, I expect you to […]
Hauser Geode Beds was great. We did find some. We went out earlier than others, so we didn’t see other members of our group. We found many of those geodes that were previously broken into so we knew we were in the right area. The weather was perfect.
A number of our members went to the […]
If we haven’t been out metal detecting at the beaches around that old sunken ship or other areas where there may be some new sand washing up, we have been out at the claims metal detecting for old relics buried long, long ago. I hope the new members are able to hook up with our […]
I understand that we did have a few members go out to the Friendly Fox outing. Members did find some gold flakes. I always liked to take kids out to the old horseshoe cave next to our claim. I would tell them the story about some lost miners in the cave and that you could […]
Here we go again. Another new year with the Treasure Seekers. We started some years ago with a membership of around 30 members. Now, we have an average of 150 members coming to our meetings. Our meetings just keep getting better. Our speakers are top notch. Our membership volunteers are the very best. There are […]
Here it is December. Where did this year go? What did we do this year???
Well, in January, David Rice gave a presentation on the Plaster City trip. Don Starr gave a presentation of a trammel he built for less than $40.00. We also had a field trip to the Hall of Fame claim. Jerry Hobbs […]
The big happening this month is the Julian Rendezvous on Veterans Day, November 11. Over 60 have signed up already. Big prizes for the gold panning contest. Big prizes for the metal detecting contest and those who participate in the metal detecting contest are eligible to do the relic hunt afterwards. Three or four clubs […]
The Himalaya Dig!!! Well, we did it. Some got some great specimens and some got a few specimens… We did have a large crowd. The event wasn’t as great as it was said to be. Maybe I wasn’t trying hard enough. Anyway, we did it and we will look for other places to dig for […]
I don’t know about you all but it has been pretty darn hot out there to do any serious prospecting. And you would be crazy to go to the desert to do it. The best bet for this summer weather is going metal detecting either in the parks or on the beach. I’ve been doing […]
We had a great picnic again this year. The metal detecting contest had a turnout of approximately 40 members. Total turnout was around 60 or more. Still the gold panning contest doesn’t draw that many who try. The winners of both contests are posted at our website. Thank you all for coming, providing the food […]
