The BIG DIG II – July 30- Aug 2

March 23, 2010 in: General


Join us for 3 days of digging, sluicing, panning and FINDING GOLD!
We’ll be staying again at Twin River Campground. Here is their website:


They have campsites and cabins. We’ll be staying on the riverside, so reserve your spot there.
If you have prospecting equipment, bring it along. If you don’t, the camp store sells everything you need. They even rent sluices!!


If you have any questions, email me at

Last year we had about 12-15 people and had a BLAST!

    UPDATE: If you want to join us for some prospecting, you will need to camp at Twin River. Day passes are limited to the first few people who ask. Please contact me if you think you will be coming up for the day…or better yet, stay for the night!

    This event is merely a way for prospectors to get together and enjoy digging together. It is an informal gathering and is not structured. Sometime in the future we may offer some classes and a more structured event.

      Cool! Once we decide on a date for next summer, all you need to do is make a reservation at Twin River Campground for the weekend. Then you can learn how to prospect for any of the group. It is a very laid back event…just a bunch of nice people who are obsessed with finding gold! We will probably post the date sometime in the Spring.

      Hope to see you in Bath next summer! Let me know if you have any questions about prospecting.
