The Santa Rosa Gold Diggers is a not-for-profit group of gold prospectors located in Santa Rosa, California. Our goals are to have fun, build friendships and help each other find gold. Monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, 7:00 pm, at Veteran’s Memorial Building in Santa Rosa, 1351 Maple Avenue, in the North Room. We cover equipment, techniques, gold history, places to go, and current legal and political issues relating to the use of our Public Lands. We publish a monthly newsletter and have organized outings. We hope you enjoy our page and that you find gold in everything you do!
