Please read, fill out and sign each of the forms where required. It is very important that you understand the Pick and Shovel, and follow the requirements when operating on our claims. Failure to comply could cause problems with BLM or DEQ, resulting in fines. You must carry your members’ card with you when you are working on any of the claims. Failure to do so may result in Forest Service, BLM employees or other EOMP members asking you to leave the site. Any member may ask to see your card which is changed yearly.  We want to make sure that those who are working the claims and removing the gold have a right to be there.

Unless otherwise mentioned, you will receive your membership card and maps after a check and signed paperwork has been received by our Corporation’s Secretary. We can use the internet to let members know of changes in  outings and other club announcements.
