While our meetings and events are open to the public, you must be a member of the Gold Prospectors Association of America to access the properties year round.  What does membership in the GPAA get you?  Here is a list of benefits included in your membership:

  • 296 Member Exclusives Properties to Prospect
  • 52,000 Acres of Prospecting Land
  • Gold Prospectors Magazine - 6 Issues Per Year (Yearly Membership Only)
  • GPAA Patch, Bumper Sticker, Decal, and Mining Guide (Year Membership Only)

Join yearly for $134 for your first year, reduced renewal rates yearly.  To sample what the GPAA has to offer, there is a limited Monthly membership for $5.99 per month.  This is a great way to see if prospecting is for you before joining for the full year.  However, this membership is limited.  

When joining, be sure to select Bellville, OH as your home chapter.  Our chapter will receive points for this which can be used to receive merchandise for our events!
