For the last couple of years January through April had great weather and so far this year it's been the same so many have been taking their lessons now! Also during this time many small nuggets were found, some finding multiple.

UPDATE! - December 2019 was one of the wettest December's in ten years. This unusual amount of rain in December has moved a lot of GOLD bearing gravels and members who are out and actively prospecting are finding a lot of newly uncovered GOLD out on the claims!

So far in 2020, January and February have been wonderful warm and sunny months making it great for being out on the claims. Right now the daily weather is sunny and 70F-78F out on the claims! As always, many of our Winter members are having a great time here in the warmer sun. The GOLD they are finding gleams beautifully in the nice warm sun! Last April a new member from Alaska took a prospecting lesson and then went out and found 3 beautiful nuggets in 7 hours of work over 2 days that paid for his new GOLD Getter membership! So if you want to enjoy the sunny warm days prospecting beautiful GOLD, join the AAGP now and come on down here and get out where the GOLD flows like the warm sun! You too can be enjoying this wonderful sunny and nice weather with us while you find and take home the GOLD! So far all lesson attendees have been finding nice placer and nuggets!

The AAGP is now offering Private and Group Professional GOLD Prospecting Adventures and Lessons in Arizona. Now, with the assistance and guidance of a master prospector, you can live the adventure of a lifetime, just like they did in the Old West. Of course, you will have all the advantages of today's modern conveniences and none of the hardships found in the old days. The gunslingers and bandits are no longer a threat to modern GOLD prospectors, but you can still visit the same areas that the old prospectors went to find their fortunes. You can drive your vehicle to most locations within an hour from Phoenix and modern equipment removes most of the physical burdens and enhances the recovery of GOLD! Each of your daily prospecting adventure or lessons can include any one of the following areas:

  1. Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced Prospecting Skills
  2. Drywashing in the desert
  3. Dredging techniques in streams and rivers
  4. Highbanking techniques along streams and rivers
  5. Nugget Hunting/Shooting
  6. Crevicing for Nuggets and Placer GOLD
  7. Claims research and staking.

Each of the above adventures or classes is designed to teach you how to have the best chance at successfully finding GOLD every time you go looking for it. After you complete one of the GOLD prospecting lessons, you will know where to look for and how to recover GOLD so that you can come home with the GOLD! All necessary equipment will be provided for your lesson(s) or you can be trained on your own personal equipment should you prefer. For less than the cost of a professional fishing guide, you can enjoy the thrill of a lifetime and learn how to keep on enjoying it on your own. Lessons are day-long and begin approximately 10:00 AM and usually end between 4 and 5 PM depending on many factors. If you have ever wanted to learn how to enjoy any of the above areas, please feel free to contact us via voice or fax at (623) 934-6882, or you may email us at the following address: .

Gold Nugget found during a private gold prospecting lesson

Charles, who is an expert fishing guide in Minnesota, went on one of our Arizona Nugget Hunting trips through our GOLD Prospecting Adventures and Lessons where he found a beautiful GOLD Nugget with quartz matrix! A total beginner, he found a Nugget anyone would be proud of. Hopefully, with his new knowledge, he will find many more.

Special Notice: So far this year everyone has been finding GOLD on the lessons and many are finding nice NUGGETS! We believe it's due to the excessive amount of rainfall we had this and last year over the previous years to help uncover the GOLD.
