The Central Montana Prospectors
Group invites you to join in the
search for gems, fossils, metal,
gold and other varieties of mining.
This is a family friendly outdoor
activity that can enhance your life. Prospecting is for all ages and
Panning for gold in the mountains and streams of Montana, especially those
around central Montana, is what we do.
We will teach you how to do this and give
real life examples for you to follow.
Gem prospecting is the search for precious gemstones around Montana.
State land is an option to pursue for
those interested in gems such as
sapphires, garnets and rubies. Our
group has outings for those interested
in gem collection and discovery.
Our group has yearly opportunities to
try your hand at detecting metal
objects of all kinds. We teach you how
to utilize metal detectors and
strategies to apply when seeking this adventure in the wild.
For those that would like to find treasures of the distant, fossil hunting is for you. Our group will share their knowledge in finding prehistoric fossilized bone, stone and other fragments.
