Prospecting in Nevada

Episode #15 of the Nevada Magazine radio show features an interview with Larry Robbins, president of the Northern Nevada Chapter of the Gold Prospectors Association of America. The show is complementary to a story by freelancer Richard Massey in Nevada Magazine's March/April 2013 issue titled "Prospecting in Nevada." The issue is on newsstands until May 1.

Robbins taks about how Nevadans can get involved in and join the GPAA prospecting group, including info about a Rye Patch Nugget Shoot (metal detector hunt) event that will be held Saturday, September 28 at Rye Patch State Recreation Area northeast of Lovelock.

The GPAA of Northern Nevada meets the fourth Monday of every month from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Spanish Springs Library in Sparks. "Any person who wishes to get out and have a good time looking for gold in the wilds of Nevada can come," Robbins says. "There are no dues, no fees, and we survive on the general goodwill of our members and sponsors."
