Welcome home to Northern California where the Scott River meets the Klamath River an a Common Dig “Dirt Party” Outing gets underway!

What is a “Common Dig Dirt Party Outing?” Gold Prospectors Association of America (GPAA), in association with the Lost Dutchman’s Mining Association (LDMA), hosts a National Gold Mining Common Dig “Dirt Party” where all participants will be working for their gold split at the end of the outing.
All gold recovered during the operation is split between the participants. All participants will receive a vial with a picker or two in it as well as a PayDirt bag that has their split of the gold recovered. It is more than just Gold Diggin Dirt Party. . . . You will meet people from all over the country, that want to learn more about how to become a better gold prospector. People are there to help you find more gold, both hands on training and a “classroom” setting. Some subjects include: Basic prospecting, geology, panning, GPS, detecting, etc. There are also daily fun activities that help benefit the camps.
We encourage you to invite friends and family to join you at the outing; however, only paid participants can be a part of outing activities, i.e. classes, seminars, hands-on training, etc. This is a great opportunity to get new people involved in prospecting for gold. This is a great escape to learn and have a good time.
