Welcome to Illinois Gold Seekers! We are an environmentally friendly, family oriented group of prospectors and treasure hunters We are GPAA chartered and educate everyone on prospecting and treasure hunting. You are encouraged to attend any or all of our meetings and do not have to be a current member of GPAA. We have hands on demonstrations and lectures on gold prospecting, treasure hunting, and rock hounding. Our meetings are held the 3rd Saturday of each month at 1 P.M., unless otherwise posted on our events page. We also have outings a couple times a year to gold bearing sights.
We are based out of Rock Island Illinois and welcome anyone to our events. We are beginning our 5th year as a GPAA chapter and welcome new members. There are no dues or fees for attending our meetings or events (except our treasure hunt, or, pay-to-dig sights that we may visit). We are in the process of planning an event filled year in what looks to be educational, fun, exciting, and enjoyable for all. Our officers are all volunteers and dedicated to the above listed fundamentals.
