The Buckeye Chapter
The Buckeye Chapter of the Gold Prospectors Association of America was started
in 1996. People from all over the state came together to pan for gold. There
are three claims in the state. The Swank Claim located in Bellville, Ohio, the
Frazee Claim near Zuck, Ohio, and the Lewis Claim located below Lucusville in
the southern part of Ohio.
Members must have their claims club prospecting permit on their person at all times when they are mining on any of the GPAA claims. You must also have a valid membership card. Visitors are always welcome but must be accompanied by a member. If you are interested in checking out one of the claims we would be glad to have you visit during one of our monthly meetings. We will show you how to pan and you can ask as many questions as you want.
