The Anchorage Chapter of the Gold Prospectors Association of America is an informal group of like-minded folk with an interest in small-scale mining in the "GreatLand" of Alaska !

The Anchorage Chapter meets the third Thursday of every month, 7:00 PM (pot luck at 6 PM) at the Alaska Industrial Hardware (AIH) offices at 2192 Viking Dr.  This is not a retail site but it is near Mountain View.  Road directions are north on Reeve Blvd through the light to Viking Dr.  Turn left on Viking Dr. The large white warehouse is on the left.  Go to the west end of the building.  The meeting site is an attached blue one-story windowed structure.  We will have the door open for you.  Park at the far west side of the parking lot.

The Alaska Treasure Seekers Society
4311 N Dartmoor St
Wasilla, AK 99654
United States

We are an organization dedicated to family outings in search of lost or discarded items from the past. We enjoy searching legally and with permission for coins, relics, and artifacts. Most of us use metal detectors in this endeavor, but it helps to have a "nose" for the past to make your outings more productive. If you are a person interested in poking around old mine tailings, gold-bearing creeks, city parks and school grounds for gold, coins, and jewelry, then this organization is for you.

Our members are coin seekers, relic hunters and gold prospectors. Some are all the above!

We are located in Alaska, primarily in the Anchorage, Eagle River and Matanuska Valley areas, but welcome metal detecting enthusiasts from everywhere.

The club has regular meetings every month through the summer with the last meeting and elections at the big year end party. Meetings resume again in April. There are door prizes for members at the meetings, competition for "finds of the month" and occasional guest speakers.

Understand what the laws are about digging artifacts.
