Welcome to UTC, the Uncompahgre Treasure Club. We are a group of metal detector and treasure hunting enthusiasts who practice our hobby in the peaceful Uncompahgre Valley in southwestern Colorado at the foot of the scenic San Juan Mountains.
Our club roster lists 75 members. UTC meets monthly and offers activities to stimulate our spirit of adventure: news regarding metal detecting and treasure hunting, speakers on topics about our hobby, and raffles for prizes. Our scheduled night time, metal detecting hunts for coins are a particular favorite, too.
UTC is fortunate to hold title to an unpatented placer gold claim on the San Miguel River, a short distance downstream from Placerville, Colorado. Club members can metal detect, pan and hand sluce for gold on the claim.
Please explore our website. Consider attending our club meetings held once a month on the 2nd Monday, 7-9 pm, at the community building in Lions Park, 602 N. Nevada in Montrose. You will be welcomed by all of us!
For additional information, please telephone Don Rodarte, club President, at (970) 258-1955.
