Make plans this spring to attend a Gold Prospectors Association of America (GPAA) Gold & Treasure Show! No matter your age or experience level, the expos offer something for everyone and provide the best opportunities to learn new skills, see product demos, and rub elbows with some of the most respected miners and metal detectorists in the business!

2018 gold show
Browse the show floor to find the latest and greatest gold mining and metal detecting equipment, attend free seminars, ask questions of the pros, and enter to win thousands of dollars in door prizes—metal detectors, sluice boxes, Gold Cube, and MORE! Also on the show floor are panning troughs for both kids and adults where you can learn new techniques— keep all the gold you find!

Saturday show hours 10 am - 5 pm and Sundays 10 am - 4 pm in these cities:

Tucson, AZ  February 17 & 18, 2018
Pomona, CA  February 24 & 25 
Ridgefield, WA March 24 & 25
Las Vegas, NV April 22 & 22
Boise, Idaho  May 5 & 6

Visit the GPAA website for details and to buy your $5 adult tickets online. Adult admission is $10 at the door; kids 12 and under are FREE and so are active duty military and veterans with ID.

Did you know... there is actually more gold to find today than the old-timers found way back in the 1800s gold rush era? Gold prospecting and treasure hunting has become a very popular and family oriented hobby, and these Gold and Treasure Shows are a great place to start in your search for that elusive shiny metal. See you there!

NOTE: Unfortunately, the ICMJ Gold Prospecting and Mining Summit usually held at the fairgrounds in Placerville, California has been cancelled for 2018. ICMJ is exploring other venues for April 2019.
