WWW.IOWAGOLD.COM
    They have lots of info
  on where to find gold in
            INDIANA

but don't forget to come back
Look at what I won.
Every month the club has one or more door prize drawings and you can win
      many things from gold pans to prospecting suppplys to silver coins.
You never know what we will have to give away, and everyone gets a chance.
           We also sell tickets for nicer prizes like gold nuggets and other stuff.

Everyone is always welcome to stop by and its free to join the local chapers.
        So if you have ever wanted to learn how to find local Indiana gold
   or just try it out for the fun of it, and meet people that like getting outdoors
       then you really should drop by one of the local chapters and say "Hi".
  We here in the Southern Chapter will do our best to make you feel right at
  home and see to if you have some fun as will. If your from Northern or Central
            Indiana you cal always check out the other Chapters as well.
                                 But you should start with us.
           Gatesville is just a few miles outside of Nashville Indiana.
Salt Creek runs thru Gatesville and we can use about a mile or so of the
                   creek in each direction from the Country Store.

                  The thing about Gatesville is its easy to get into
           (you can drive right upto the creek and unload your gear)
       The waters slow and shallow with geodes for the kids to pickup.
If you are new to prospecting please check out one of Indiana's local clubs.
They are free to join and will be happy to help you out and get you started right.
You may also make some new friends along the way.
It really is more then putting dirt in a pan and shaking it around.
We have 2 clubs in Indiana right now and maybe more on the way.
Check out our links to the other chapters

         March 7 August 9, 2015 Gold! Riches And Ruin
"Gold! Riches and Ruin explores the historical and cultural significance of gold in the American West. This exciting exhibit looks at historic gold rushes in California, the Black Hills, and the Yukon-Klondike, and features objects and images that tell the stories of people, their relationships with the landscape, and the gold they sought and took from it. These are stories of perseverance, adventure, innovation, and success, but also of greed, violence, sacrifice, and failure. They illuminate the significance of gold to American culture, and the role it has played in forging a national identity."
