Welcome to the Yellow Metal Miners Club Home Page

Hello everyone.

Yellow Metal Miners Club / Association is located within the Edmonton Area and is open to all persons interested in Gold Panning, Gold Mining and Prospecting.

Always great to see and meet new people joining the club.  Sharing stories, ideas, equipment and other information is a great way to stay active, meet new people and pass the months until the opportunity returns to get back out and get yer Gold!

A special thank you to a returning guest speaker.  Frank, always great hearing of your trails for the gold, and seeing all the items you share.

 Here are the dates for upcoming meetings.  Looking forward to sharing stories and adventures we all have experienced.

At present, we are planning a Gold and Prospectors Show which will have several displays, activities and a Gold Panning Competiton with prizes (nominal fee to enter, plus seperate age groups).

About the Yellow Metal Miners Club

Meetings are held monthly, on occasion, twice per month. Information is shared, items are demonstrated and friendships are developed.

Guest speakers will be scheduled throughout the winter months and outings for day trips planned throughout the year. Occasionally we will have some fun at competitions with prizes.

Come and share your stories and hear others. Guaranteed to be a fun enjoyable time.

Please register with attendance and number attending by email or phone. Location of meeting will be sent upon registration.
