Our next chapter meeting will be at 10 am on Saturday, Oct  20, 2018.  

As usual, we are at the Coker Creek Village Center. 

Please note: Check the Dining Hall first, then if we are not there,

we will be in the front building near the parking lot. 

If you have a presentation you would like to give to the chapter, 

please contact Allen Trotter and let him know asap.  

If you have anything to sell related to Prospecting, please list

it on the forum and bring it to the meetings. 


Our Coker Creek GPAA Chapter will have 2 booths set up at the Coker Creek Gold Festival on Oct 13-14, 2018. 

NOTE: This is a local event and not the GPAA chapter Gold Festival we have had in the past. We are looking for Volunteers to help in our booths and to teach Gold Panning. Please look for a special Forum post soon on this topic.  Some of the proceeds will be going to the local elementary school. 


Update Aug 21, 2018: The GPAA had cancelled the GA Gold and Treasure Show. 

 There is only one Eastern show remaining in Springfield Ohio on Oct 27-28.

Godwin-Coker Creek Lease Closes 9/26/2017


As of Discussions held this weekend with the Buyer, The Godwin - Coker Creek Lease is now closed due to the property being sold. 
While there are other areas where we will be able to pan this has been the only location in the State where we can Class 2 Prospect.
This is an unfortunate turn of events, as we have not been able to secure another lease at this time. We are currently looking in the area. 
However there are still locations where panning is allowed. Please check the forum for details.

Congratulations to our New Board of Directors Members!
