ARIZONA GOLD MAPS

GOLD IN ARIZONA - GOLD MAPS FOR GOLD PANNING, METAL DETECTING AND PROSPECTING WITH OVER 4,500 GOLD SITES. GOLD MAPS ARE GREAT FOR GOLD PANNERS, GOLD METAL DETECTING, GOLD PROSPECTORS, ROCK HOUNDS, CAMPERS, HIKERS, AND GEOLOGIST. THE LOCATION AND MINERAL OCCURRENCE OF GOLD FOR THESE SITES CAME FROM EXTENSIVE RESEARCH OF THE ARIZONA DATA FILES FROM THE U.S.G.S. DOCUMENTS. (MRDS FILES) GOLD MAPS INCLUDE GPS DATA AND WERE PREPARED IN THE AREAS OF ARIZONA IN WHICH THE MOST OCCURRENCE OF GOLD HAS BEEN FOUND AND ARE LISTED BELOW.

There is still gold in the creeks, and washes in Arizona. The best chance to find Gold in these creeks and washes, placer deposits, and prospects, is to know where the occurrence of gold has been found. Before you dig or pan for Gold you will need a map to show you where to look. These Gold Maps provide you with past and active gold mines, placers and claims. The venture will be interesting and challenging. When you do make a Gold find it will be very exciting. In the past, it was not uncommon for one to find 1 to 6 ounce nuggets in the streams and placers. Those days may be gone, but with some luck and a lot of determination you may find some gold or even a gold nugget. There are present day stories of modern day prospectors, either panning or using metal detectors, finding nuggets today. The picture to the right is mountains in the vicinity of Sedona, Arizona.

 

ARIZONA GOLD MAPS

A portion of the Gold map from the Prescott Gold map is shown below.


The gold sites are noted and shown with a numerical number next to each site. The number is referenced to a north latitude and west longitude point. The sites are plotted on a USGS topographic map which shows the contours, streams, points of interest, and forest areas of the land. A 'P' next to the record number shows were placer gold deposits have been found. A gold cluster is used to identify gold site's record numbers when to gold sites are too close to number. An attachment is included with the maps that show the gold sites record numbers. The red cross hatched area represents historical areas of placer gold deposits. Ghost towns / Miners Camps and Historical towns are shown on the gold maps in the yellow ellipses. Active Prospectors Association gold club claims areas are shown on the maps, noted in the yellow boxed areas. Hiking trails are noted by a 'H' in a red circle with a 'T' next to it. Picture to the right is a valley view of Sedona. Recreational Gold panning is allowed within the National Forest.
