About Me

Been a wannabe prospector for 25+ years after being hooked during a Jeep Jamboree trip in 1984 yet have only tried a few times since on camping outings etc. due to life obligations. I have more time to make a serious effort now and am glad to find a local group for guidance on where to go a looking.

We moved to California from Pennsylvania in 1980.  I always admired the western life and think it would be fun to try to find some gold like the old prospectors did!

About Me

Hello Folks!

My name is Douglas Jan Junghans, Please call me PUCKY;  I was born in Wisconsin in1951. I am the ninth of 11 children. I move to California in 1991 and joined the GPAA ; I met Terri Markey in 1994.  We Joined The LDMA in the fall at  an Italian Bar common dig. I used to go to Italian Bar (a LDMA patented claim near Columbia, CA) quite often; The changes to the management and new rules and charges/fees have slowed my visits down. I urge you to visit the Camp and check it out, as GPAA Members have a free 3 day Pass waiting at the Main Office for the asking.  I have 2 Gold Claims on Rose Creek, 3 1/2 miles past I-Bar! I love to dredge!! But I can't because of the laws we are forced to follow. California really sucks now that the EPA and the enviro-wacko's have their way!  In late 2008, I contacted the GPAA Office inquiring about starting a Chapter in the East Bay. Gold Pan California (Prospecting Supply Store in Concord) offered to let us use their store as a meeting place. I filled out the paper work and got some locals involved, and with the help of the GPAA New Chapter Meeting Mailer, we started the East Bay Prospectors! March of 2009 we were officially founded. I was elected the first President (2 years) I was blessed with folks wanting to help and lend a hand with the Club. With that help, we have one of the finest GPAA Chapters in the World. Feel free to message me at any time, calling me during business hours is greatly appreciated.

About Me
It has been a number of years that I have opened the web site, due to my own illness and death in the family. I have relocated from Arcadia to the high desert (Apple Valley, Ca.)around the Mojave Desert is my new playground and this is where I will explore for now. Its been a few years that I made a trip up the Sacramento area to visit with family and to play and work the northern rivers. Curently doing some hard rock recovery (dry washing and metal detecting). Besides gold recovery, I have been finding some gems and minerals, a whole other relm of prospecting. But theres nothing like the old yeller stuff.
How long have you been prospecting?
Been playing in the dirt most of my life thanks to my father. Have a lot of the recovery tools and also lost quit a few along the journy. The past ten years have been off and on, but this is where the heart is.
