Our next general meeting will be held on March 28, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. Be sure to add that date to your calendar and come to enjoy the meeting and your prospecting friends!
Members are asked to sign up to help with the Gemstone Junction (rock show) table to be held on April 13, 14, 15 at the Golden Spike Exhibition Building. Any time you can spare will be greatly appreciated. It's also a fun time to meet adults and kids and tell them about prospecting as a hobby. You can also wander around the rock show and see what you can't live without!
Just a note: The California ban on suction dredging will continue. In January 2018 the Supreme Court rejected a challenge to it indicating that the Federal Government has largely sided with states on environmental isssues. Therefore, if California feels suction dredging is harmful to its environment, they can regulate against it. Other lawsuits are still pending.
