We are having our 2nd Lucky Strike Outing June 20-21. This is a two day outing where we run their wash plant. All paying participants will receive an equal split of the recovered gold. Last year we recovered 26.4 grams. The fee for renting the wash plate for the two days is $1500.00, we will split this cost between all participants. This does not cover lodging, transportation, or food. There is onsite camping, and several motels close by. Contact Jason, or Joseph For more information.
We are setting up the web store to receive payments, the amount is based on 15 participants. The final amount will be adjusted up or down depending on the amount of members who sign up.
Debbie Straub for drawing the Nugget
Brian Griffin for winning the 1oz silver proof gold mining coin.

We will open the2014 season with the first three club outings at the Farm Claim, during those outings we will set the agenda for the rest of the season so it is very important to attend and let your voice be heard.
If you are joining the GPAA or renewing you GPAA membership Please let them know to credit the Buchanan Chapter for membership points. This helps the club to purchase mining supplies for our raffles. Thanks.
We welcome you to our club site. We are based in the Northwest Georgia Area. Please feel free to look around; some areas are for SGMA members only. We are a private club mostly made up of GPAA members. To sign up please contact SGMA at; email@example.com or come join us at our monthly meeting.
We are the official Buchanan Chapter of the GPAA.
We meet monthly to spend the day prospecting for GOLD and that evening having a pot luck dinner where we tell lies about the nugget that got away. After dinner we discuss Club business and have our Club raffle. During the year we will have several common operations as well. Our members range in experience from just starting out to seasoned veterans.
We are a not for profit organization and charge no membership fees. Our operating cost come solely from Fund Raisers, donations, and raffle proceeds.
I just want to reaffirm for all the new and potential member’s one of the main guideline that we built this club around, and that is No Drama. I’m sure if you have been on the GPAA site very long then you have been exposed to a lot of the drama that takes place there. This kind of back and forth bickering hurts not only the person’s reputation but also the club reputation that they are associated with. So in short if you are into that kind of stuff please consider joining different club because frankly the SGMA will not tolerate it.
If you have a problem, issue, or suggestion please let us know about it and we will do our best to get it settled.
Be assured we will take any and all actions necessary to protect our club and it member’s reputation…
You can view all the Club Videos. We will be posting them as we make them so please bare with us.
