About GPAT Tucson
The Gold Prospectors Association of Tucson (GPAT) is the only prospecting club in Tucson that is affiliated with the Gold Prospectors Association of America (GPAA), a nationwide organization. This affiliation allows us, as a club, to utilize all of GPAA's Gold Claims. We presently have TWELVE Claims within easy driving distance of Tucson and are continually adding more. We are a family oriented organization, many of our members bring their spouses & children to all our outings. GPAT is a non-profit organization. ALL Officers are volunteers and receive no remuneration. ALL operating funds are raised by the sale of prospecting related items, and by the raffling of GOLD & merchandise at our monthly meetings and at our group outings.

VISITORS are always welcome at our meetings and may participate in almost all activities, including the GOLD Raffle.

There are always members available to sponsor guests, especially first timers. Come as a Visitor and if you decide that you would be interested in Recreational Gold Prospecting, we will be glad to sign you up as a GPAA & GPAT member.
