The Bedrock Prospectors Club was organized by men and women interested in small scale mining and prospecting for gold and other precious minerals and gems.

The Bedrock Prospectors Club has also been the predominent Northwest club involved with organizing some of the most important mining rallies in recent years.

The Bedrock Prospectors Club is involved in many ways, including lobbying, to preserve our rights to mining, as granted by the "Mining Act of 1872".

Bedrock Prospectors Club is registered with Washington State as a nonprofit corporation.

More about us

Bedrock Propectors are families having fun with a common interest.

We prospect for minerals, as well as the following:

  • Enjoy Pot Luck Dinners at our Outings
  • Camping trips at our claims, and elsewhere
  • Hiking and Exploring
  • Community Service
  • Tell Stories and laugh, while learning from the experiences of others
  • Host a great Christmas Party


To sum it all up

This is a group where all ages can come together and play. We bring our families, along with our friends and pets. We watch nature in all its glory and enjoy laughing when nature rains on us. When the flowers are in bloom and the deer bed down near camp, we sit by the fire telling stories of past fun, and past storms. Oh, that's us, Pacific Northwest prospectors!

Washington State Gold

Here's some pictures of gold found by a Bedrock Prospectors Club Member:

All of the gold was found in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State.

Course gold nuggets are not common, so recovering them while small scale mining is especially rewarding.

Get yours today. There's still more of that "gold in them thar hills" to be had!
It's estimated that the "Old Timers" miners only recovered less than 10 % the gold that exists. That leaves a lot left for us modern miners to find, and profit from.
