People Looking For Real Gold & Treasure Adventures
Join our Chapter. It’s FREE! Route 66 Gold Miners, Inc. is the non-profit, Orange County Chapter of the GPAA. We hold our monthly meetings in Brea, CA, centrally located in beautiful Southern California. Our chapter was formed in 2003 and since then has grown to one of the best prospecting clubs around. Our members range in experience from the beginner to the seasoned pro, each willing to make you feel welcome and share the wealth of knowledge they have on how to find gold and treasure.
Our Chapter’s Mission
We strive to provide a family oriented environment where members can mingle and share the passion for prospecting & treasure hunting. We also work to educate the community about prospecting by participating in local events, such as rock and mineral shows, where our chapter can teach children and adults alike about how to prospect and pan for gold. The Route 66 Gold Miners actively promote the GPAA (Gold Prospectors of Association of America) and the PLP (Public Lands for the People) who are constantly fighting for every American’s right to enjoy public lands and the right to prospect on them.
Our Chapter Outings
Each month we have an outing. It may be a trip to our private claim in Barstow, an adventure up Azusa Canyon or maybe a short trip to the beach for a metal detecting hunt. The bottom line is: something is always going on in the club. These outings range from an easy short day trip to rugged summer night digs at our Barstow claim. There is always something for every member to participate in and learn.
Please Join Us at Our Monthly Meetings
We hold our meetings on the 2nd Saturday of each month between 5:30pm and 8:30pm at the Brea Scouts Center located at 401 S. Brea Blvd. in Brea, California. All are welcome. We strive to make every meeting an educational and entertaining event. We have entertaining guest speakers who talk on a wide variety of subjects that relate to Gold Prospecting and Treasure Hunting. To top it off, we hold one of the best raffles around, bar none. Members and guests have the opportunity to win a Gold nugget, a gold bag, silver coins, mining equipment and much more each month.
We look forward to meeting you and having you join us on one of our many adventures.
