LDMA - Lost Dutchman's Mining Association

The History of Lost Dutchman’s Mining Association
The Lost Dutchman’s Mining Association was founded by George, Wilma, Perry and Tom Massie in 1976 to provide places where men, women and their families could meet, prospect and mine for gold. Beginning with one historic gold property, Italian Bar in California’s Mother Lode, the LDMA now has an ever growing number of private properties and claims in several western states and also in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Lost Dutchman’s private camps and claims boast some of the finest gold reserves and prospecting in this country.
One of the most important considerations when new properties are being evaluated for the LDMA is their gold-producing potential. Exhaustive tests are made in the area to ensure that Lost Dutchman’s members will have continued access to proven gold reserves. Members in past years have reported finding anything from a few flakes of gold to some very large nuggets on our properties.
LDMA members can prospect and/or camp on deeded, patented properties such as Stanton, Arizona, a gold rush town north of Phoenix that is being restored by volunteer members. Or, there’s our Scott River property, deep in the lush forests of northern California, where fog often drifts through the trees. The Klamath River itself provides gold-rich gravels in an unbelievably beautiful setting. An LDMA membership is something that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come.
LDMA members also have access to a multitude of valuable mining claims in some of the West’s richest mining areas. All of the gold that members find is theirs to keep!
The Lost Dutchman’s Mining Association represents more than just prospecting. Join us on holiday outings at historic gold mining camps. Enjoy prospecting and mining seminars, demonstrations, field trips, camaraderie and more!
