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.
