2012 Washington Gold Shows
Written by: Lost Treasure magazine
This year, Bedrock Prospectors are holding two very special raffles to benefit a few very special organizations.
First off, they will be raffling off two five-day prospecting trips, one donated by the GPAA for any of their California/Oregon events, and another donated by The New 49’ers. In addition, over 30 exciting prizes will be given away that were donated by organizations like the GPAA, The New 49’ers, Apex, Keene Industries, Fisher, Teknetics, Bounty Hunter, Gold Cube, Gold-N-Sand, Estwing, White’s Electronics, Minelab, RCM, Gold Rush Trading Post, Miners, Inc, Rosewind Mining, Cabela’s and Irish’s Mining Co. and more companies are being added to the list weekly. Who knows just how many gifts we will be giving away?
Prizes include a Gold Cube, a Keene Super Concentrator, back packs loaded with prospecting tools, pin pointers, and sluice boxes, a Gold-Sand, an Apex Pick, more concentrators, nine checks from Minelab for $200 each towards products, and all kinds of mining tools.
And everyone stopping by the booth will receive a free trial subscription to Lost Treasure Magazine.
The club will be carrying all the prizes worth over $7,000 from show to show. Attendees will be able to purchase raffle tickets at each show for the trip giveaways, and register to win the other prizes. The winners of the two trips will be announced at the Spokane GPAA show - April 28th – 29th, and the rest of the prize winners will be announced at the Liberty Miners’ Rally, August 25th – 26th.
All of the proceeds from the raffle will go to support agencies like the PLP (Public Lands For the People, http://plp1.org/home.html) and the Resource Coalition (http://www.resourcescoalition.org), as well as other fine organizations. The need to support these agencies is greater than ever if we are to protect our rights as prospectors. Tickets are only $1 each. For less than a cup of coffee, you can help keep our rights to do what we love - prospecting, mining, metal detecting, and rock hunting, etc.
