You made it!

Gold Rush University, which we have affectionately nicknamed: GoldRushU

The purpose of this site is to be a resource for knowledge, skills and a "Motherlode" of useful tools for beginning prospectors (greenhorns), as well as old gray haired ones, small scale miners and part-time prospectors.

It is currently just a pinch of gold dust in what promises to be a full "poke"!

We are currently digging through the mountain of prospecting information out there, "concentrating" it down to the richest "paydirt" to be made available here at GoldRushU.

Some of it is coming from old books, maps, magazines and the electronic world. Some of it is coming from myself and other prospectors sharing their personal experience, which is where some great "nuggets" of value are coming from.

This site is a "working mine" with new "finds" to share, so check back and continue your education at GoldRushU!

Part of what we do to insure we preserve our private and public property rights is to support the work of PLP:

Keep our mining rights and freedom to access PUBLIC LAND and to use our own PRIVATE LAND 

 PUBLIC LANDS FOR THE PEOPLE is your organiztion...working for you.

Here is an update on the dredging lawsuits by David Young, PLP lawyer:

Public Lands for the People
A great grass roots organization fighting hard to keep public land PUBLIC and open to mining, hiking, camping, fishing, geocaching, hunting, off roading and other public uses.

If we don't stand up for the freedoms that other generations before us have fought hard to win- we will lose them by default and be left standing there, scratching our heads wondering what happened to the small scale gold miners, fisherman, hunters, hikers, canoes, snowmobiles, bikes?!

Gold Rush University is dedicated to keeping America's mining heritage alive for future generations.
