Committed to preserving Arizona’s great prospecting heritage for all generations of gold prospectors.
Roadrunner Prospectors' Club (RRPC) was founded in 1982 as a non-profit, volunteer-staffed, family-oriented club dedicated to gold mining in the state of Arizona. Members enjoy access to over 270 gold-producing claims encompassing more than 5500 acres of land in Arizona. Some claims are on creeks in the cool mountain pines while others are in the desert foothills; and after a fun day of prospecting, members may keep all the gold they find.
RRPC provides members with placer mining claims and educational opportunities to learn and practice various methods of prospecting for gold. Socially, in addition to the monthly meetings with guest speakers, the club sponsors several annual outings that include the Spring Picnic, a coin hunt, and planned backhoe digs. We wrap up the year with a Christmas Gathering which includes dinner, entertainment, gold nugget drawings, and lots of fun.
The goal of the Roadrunner Prospectors’ Club is to educate members and the public in regard to recreational prospecting, including governmental jurisdictions, environmental issues, and laws that we are mandated to follow.
The vision of the Roadrunner Prospectors’ Club is to educate the members and to bestow on future generations the needed knowledge to continue recreational prospecting in an environmentally friendly way.
