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.
Meetings are held the third Monday of each month from 7:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
We meet at the Puyallup Masonic Hall at 1005 West Pioneer, in Puyallup, WA.
We have a guest speaker or program each month,
with classes on panning, dredging, how to do it, and where to go.
There is a Monthly Name Drawing, but sorry, you must be present to win.
It will grow by $10 a month until it is Won.
There is a Prize Raffle at every monthly meeting. A Gold Nugget is raffled off
along with two other great prizes. Tickets are 1 for $1 or 6 for $5.
Prize donations gladly accepted. Good Luck.
Don't forget to give to the Family Christmas Fund at the
door throughout the year.
The Membership Chairman is available at every meeting to help with questions
and promote Your Club. Members are always sharing tips and techniques; their
favored equipment practices plus shows and, need I say, tells?
Open Board Meetings are held on the First Tuesday of Every Month.

Several outings are planned throughout the year.
Members can enjoy Metal Detecting and Rockhounding activities.

famous "Pot Lucks", and Tailgate Parties!
And always, all gold you find as a member on club claims, you keep!
Let's have some fun.
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!
