Hunts & Events

Organized hunts and treasure-hunting shows are a great way to pick up tips to make you a more successful hunter, meet fellow hobbyists and even check out that new piece of equipment you have had your eye on.  Listed below are some upcoming events across the United States.  If there is one planned for your area or in a location that you can combine a family vacation to attend, mark your calendar and start making plans . . . you will be glad you did and as many have found, attending hunts can be highly addictive!

Website:     
Flyer:         
Event Description:    Participants will work on the Commercial Operation GOLD Dig and receive a full share of the GOLD recovered that day! All the GOLD recovered is divided up as evenly as possible based on size of any nuggets and/or flakes found and number of participants. The GOLD share pick is conducted in order of payment received so first to pay gets to reach in and draw their share of the GOLD out of the pan first! This gives them the first and best chance of picking the overall best share but does not guarantee it as this is a "blind" pick out of the share pan and relies purely on chance.
