Our Mission Statement
East Bay Prospectors is dedicated to providing education, support and increased public awareness of prospecting and mining, while maintaining responsible environmental conservation. Our purpose is to educate and support individual participants, groups, organizations and anybody else interested in the ecologically sound practices of gold prospecting, small scale gold mining for profit and treasure hunting. These purposes will be accomplished through training and education concerning the locating and legal removal of minerals and treasures while preserving wildlife habitat and the environment where these activities occur. Training and education shall be accomplished through demonstrations, lectures, meetings or field outings at any location deemed appropriate by the board of directors and club members including public lands where we can or have gained ownership of the mineral rights.
