Welcome To The Northwest Mineral Prospector’s Club.
The Northwest Mineral Prospector’s Club (NWMPC) was Established in May 1981 in Vancouver, Washington USA, and Incorporated in the State of Washington as a Non-Profit 501(c)(4) on April 29, 1992, to provide education for people interested in small-scale Gold Mining & Mineral location.
We typically hold our club meetings on the second Tuesday of every month starting at 7 pm. Guests are always welcome to drop in and see what our club is all about and to ask any questions you may have about small-scale Gold Mining & Minerals in Oregon & Washington.
Due to Covid-19 and for the SAFETY of our club members and guests, we have Temporarily discontinued our monthly In-Person meetings until it’s SAFE to resume. At this time our Club meets via Zoom Meetings.
Several times each year our club has group outings at our club’s Gold claims which are fun for the whole family. This is a great opportunity for novice Gold miners to ask questions and learn panning skills from Gold miners of all experience levels.
One of the many ways our club promotes small-scale gold mining is to have a Gold Panning Booth at several of the major outdoor shows in the Pacific Northwest. We demonstrate to kids of “All Ages” the best way to pan for Gold and you get to keep All the Gold you find in your pan.
The Northwest Mineral Prospector’s Club (NWMPC) has various types of mining equipment and books about Gold Mining, Prospecting & Minerals in our club’s library that club members in good standing can check out and use.
Our monthly club meetings are held at the Bridge City Community Church located at 2816 SE Harrison Street. Milwaukie, Oregon 97222.
