Get ready to get dirty, have a ton of fun, and git some GOLD!

Your GPAA-LDMA National Dirt Party: 5-Day Common Dig is just around the bend. Dirt Party 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. Work hard and Digger may enhance your final split.

Dirt Parties are much more than just recovering gold. It’s family and friendship! You will often hear the “ol timers” share their stories and experiences about “the club.” I’ll encourage you to partake, and listen at any campfire . . . the entertainment, history and knowledge is always a hoot!

Whether you’re just getting started in gold prospecting on the weekends or you’re a seasoned “sourdough” veteran in the dirt for years, the common dig operation, seminars, hands-on instruction and activities offered during these five-day events will help you get the “In-The-Dirt” experience, fun and adventure for you and your whole family... plus some gold too!

As a Dirt Party Participant, you will receive a vial with a picker or two in it as a “thank you” from LDMA, as well as a black sand dirt bag that has a split of the gold recovered from the common operation
