The Desert Gold Diggers currently has gold claims that are available to all current members. Some claims can be accessed by regular passenger vehicles but a high clearance vehicle is recommended. All meeting areas for the monthly outings can be reached by any vehicle.
If you need a ride into a claim from the meeting place at a monthly outing, contact the Outings Director when you arrive for assistance. Members are very helpful about current road conditions, whether your vehicle is adequate and offering rides if needed. Meeting times and places for the monthly claim outings are given in the DGD Gazette and on the Calendar page.
All club members are given detailed maps of the claim areas with directions and road information. Recommended vehicle type to access each claim is also given. It should be noted that the claims committee tests each new claim for gold before adding it to our holdings.
All club mining claims have volunteer Claims Stewards who check claims for access and report discrepancies to be corrected.
