About G.P.A.A

The Gold Prospectors Association (GPAA) was founded in 1968 to preserve and promote the great heritage of the North American Prospector. The GPAA was also dedicated to providing a platform for the exchange of information, presenting an organized voice for recreational and professional prospectors and helping it's members find more gold.

Today, the GPAA has become the worlds largest prospecting organization, but their goals haven't changed one bit. Through television, the internet and print media, the GPAA today provides more information and is a more effective organized voice than ever before. GPAA programs provide places to go, local support, free information service and much more.

About El Paso Chapter

We are a family of friends and acquaintances that come together to share the love of nature and the search for gold through Recreational Gold Prospecting.

Brought together by common purpose, we are a chapter of the Gold Prospector Association of America.  Our Chapter is located in El Paso, Texas and was established in 1997 with the help of the late Norm Bliss and a few other local members of the GPAA.

Norm Bliss was the founder and first President of our chapter, an avid prospector and devoted family man.  Throughout the years our chapter has grown through word of mouth and through community services we have provided in the El Paso area. 

Although there is very little gold in West Texas, we are a few hours from many old mining districts in the State of New Mexico.  Our chapter is governed by the By Laws of the GPAA and laws governing prospecting in Texas and New Mexico.  We give instructional demontrations to  all age groups interested in finding gold through placer mining using many different types of equipment.
Our main objective is to promote prospecting in individuals and families.  There is no charge or fee to attend the monthly meetings and all persons interested in recreational prospecting are invited and welcome.  Meetings are held the 2ndTuesday of every month at Skyline Optimist Youth Park, 5050 Yvette @ 7:00pm.  Committee Officers, members, including new members, get together to discuss business, current events, club drawings and upcoming outings.
