COLORADO GOLD MAPS

GOLD IN COLORADO - GOLD MAPS FOR GOLD PANNING, METAL DETECTING AND PROSPECTING WITH OVER 3,700 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 COLORADO DATA FILES FROM THE U.S.G.S. DOCUMENTS. (MRDS FILES) GOLD MAPS INCLUDE GPS DATA AND WERE PREPARED IN THE AREAS OF COLORADO IN WHICH THE MOST OCCURRENCE OF GOLD HAS BEEN FOUND AND ARE LISTED BELOW.

There is still gold in the creeks and streams in Colorado. The best chance to find Gold in these creeks and streams, placer deposits, and near old mines 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.

COLORADO GOLD MAPS

A portion of the Gold map from the Denver, Gold map is shown below.

 

The gold sites are noted and shown with a numerical record number next to each site. The number is referenced to a north latitude and west longitude point. (See the table in the upper right which shows the gold record numbers with their latitude and longitude position.) These record numbers can be inserted into a GPS device so that you can easily find the location of the gold site in the field. The gold sites are plotted on a USGS topographic map which shows the elevation contours, streams, points of interest, and national forest areas. A 'P' next to the record number shows were placer gold deposits have been found. Roads are highlighted in red and old Miners Camps / Historical towns are highlighted on the gold maps. Gold sites that are clustered so close that the GPS record number can not be shown on the gold map are denoted by a gold cluster. The record numbers are shown on an attached paper copy of the gold site record numbers. (See the detail to the right for cluster #3) Prospectors Association gold club active claims areas are also shown on the gold maps. Hiking trails are noted by a 'H' in a red circle with a 'T' next to it. Recreational Gold panning is allowed within the National Forest.
