Calvin stated that the Back Page article on us in the Delta County Independent was published on December 12, 2018.


The winner of the Nugget Board was Don Kosnik. Congratulations. The new board will be a .5 oz silver bar.


Calvin is going to hold a silent auction on a 2# bag of Felix concentrates. The original cost of the bag was $120 plus $18 shipping. It is the Motherlode edition. The auction will be open til the April meeting.


There will be a workshop at Lester's house Saturday the 26th at 9 am. This is for if you have equipment to work on or concentrates to pan out or if you just want to hang out. This will be pot luck. Bring a dish (chili or soup or something that goes with) and your own place setting and drink. If you need directions, please call. If there is no answer, leave a message and I will return your call.


We will be doing sign-up sheets for volunteers to work the fundraisers (gold shows). If you volunteer and actually work the fundraiser, you will receive 3 tickets for the large door prize drawing. We need more club members to help at these events. 


Deb wants to sell her LDMA lifetime membership. Please contact for more information. She is offering a very good deal.
