Gold Searchers of Southern Nevada is a Las Vegas club comprised of members from all walks of life. From "greenhorns to seasoned prospectors". Some members have backgrounds in fields such as geology, mineralogy and mine engineering. But, most of all, our members share a common love of freedom to explore the great outdoors.
A number of our club members are "Snowbirds" from many states. Whether on extended vacations or for the winter. They come to the great southwest to enjoy the weather and seek that beautiful yellow metal known as Gold. Our club has several gold bearing claims where they pursue their goals. Most of are members own at least one metal detector. Others in our club put their trust into proven gold extraction equipment such as dry washers and recirculating sluices. The club conducts regular monthly outings where you can see and use a variety of prospecting equipment first hand at a location known to produce gold.
There's a wealth of knowledge to be gained and friendships to be made. Finding gold is not our sole priority. Club members participate in public service activities such as fencing and securing abandoned mine shafts, teach scouts and public school students about the mining industry, minerals and gold panning. We also voice our opinions on matters such as land use and mining laws.
Monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 at the American Legion Post, 425 E. Van Wagenen in Henderson, Nevada. Visitors may attend two general meetings and/or go to one club outing. Or simply join our club by filling out a membership application, and Hold Harmless Agreement. The first year dues are $45.00. Dues thereafter are $30.00 per year. This is a "family membership" which includes all immediate family members.
