GOLD IN COLORADO - GOLD MAPS FOR GOLD PANNING, METAL DETECTING AND PROSPECTING WITH OVER 3,000 GOLD SITES. GHOST TOWNS, MINERS CAMPS AND HISTORICAL TOWNS ARE SHOWN ON THESE MAPS.  GOLD MAPS ARE GREAT FOR GOLD PANNERS, METAL DETECTOR USERS, 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  U.S.G.S. DOCUMENTS.  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.     
 

                                                               

 


The best chance to find gold in creeks and placer deposits is to know where the occurrence of gold has been found. Before you dig or pan for gold  in the creek deposits, 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 especially with the price of gold at an all time high. In the past, it was  not uncommon for one to find 1 to 10 ounce nuggets in placer deposits and creek deposit. Those days may be gone, but who knows, maybe with some luck you could find a gold nugget.

This gold map shows gold sites located in the Routt National Forest, and north of the town of Craig, Colorado.  The map shows the

land grades and contours,  the hill elevations, which are range from 6000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, the roads, trails, streams and

creeks, ruins, ranches, towns, and national forest.  Gold prospectors, gold panners, hikers, rock hounds and campers

can use this gold map for their outdoor recreational activities. Get your gold pans and metal detectors and head for the hills,

 streams and creeks.  However, the first thing you will need before you start your adventure is a gold map

Each gold site represents an authentic mine or prospect as recorded by the United States Geological Survey (USGS)

The mines date back to the 1860's to the present.  Most are abandoned, but some prospects and mines have current day

claims on them. These maps show the gold record numbers adjacent to each gold site. This denotes the latitude and longitude

point of each gold site.  This is useful with GPS instruments for field location of the gold sites and can also be used by

Google Earth or other GPS locating map programs to look at an aerial view of the site prior to any prospecting.

            The mother load of gold runs from Boulder Colorado south west to

            Leadville Colorado.  The largest cluster of claims were located just to the

            west of Denver, along Clear Creek, near Idaho Springs. ( 15 miles due west of

           Denver along I-70.  The elevation rises about 5000 feet.)  The gold sites follow

            the continental divide, and are located just to the east of the divide from Boulder

             to Denver, and found mostly by the streams that are eroding the mountains. Steep

             drops are noted around alpine peak, and Grays Peak (14000 feet elevation) down

            to the stream valley (10000 feet elevation).

          The elevation of the divide is around 12,000 feet above sea level, with several peaks reaching

           to over 14,000 feet above sea level. (Mt. Evans peak is 14,264 feet above sea level)

             Many gold sites are found on both sides of the continental divide near Leadville, on the

             streams and sides of the mountain where the erosion has occurred.   There are other

            gold sites scattered around the quadrants on the creeks.  Some near Aspen.  Most of the

             gold sites appear to be accessible by paved road way or trails.  There are many hiking

             trails within this area.   

             Close up detail gold maps are included which shows the gold sites in the vicinity of

             Leadville, Keystone, Georgetown, and others areas in the Denver area.  These detailed

       which is useful in obtaining gold claim information or for filing a claim.

      Another cluster of gold sites are located about 15 miles west of Durango by U.S. 160.

       The gold sites are off road, and you will have to access them by trail and use your

       GPS to find them.  About 40 miles north east of Cortez, along S.R. 145, there is another

      cluster of gold sites near Telescope Mountain. (Elevation 12,201 feet). A stream runs

      parallel to the State Highway 145 where several gold sites are shown.    Other gold sites

     are found through out the quadrant. Some gold sites are by the paved roads, but many

       off road and can be accessed only by trails or dirt road ways.  Several gold sites are located

       on the streams in the vicinity of State Road 149, about 20 miles south west of Gunnison. 

        Further along SR 149, about another 20 miles, is another cluster of gold sites near the

        Lake Fork Creek. (This creek runs next to the Road)  However, a lot of the

        Gold sites are off the main road and follow tributary streams of the Lake Fork.

        There are several plateaus around 12000 feet elevations, Mesa Seco (12,880 feet) and

        mountain peaks of 14,000 feet elevation ( Uncomphgre Peak 14,309 feel elevation).

        The stream valleys that carry the gold deposit from the mountains are around 9,000 feet

       above sea level.  There are pretty steep drops from the mountain tops to the streams.

        35 miles south of Montrose, on U.S. 550, there are several gold sites located adjacent to

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1:250000 SCALE BASE GOLD MAPS AND 1:100000 SCALE DETAIL GOLD MAPS?

THESE ARE TWO DIFFERENT USGS MAPS AND WERE MADE AT DIFFERENT TIMES. USUALLY THE 1:100000 SCALE MAPS ARE MORE RECENT.  

The 1:250,000 scale gold map, about 1'' = 4 miles, define an area covering 1 degree of latitude and 2 degrees of longitude or a 1 x 2 grid map.  The extent of topography shown includes primary roads, creeks, rivers, mountain ranges, major cities and towns.  The gold sites shown on these maps show where the gold has been found in general locations.  This is adequate to find streams or prospect areas when the gold is not clustered in a certain vicinity.  When is is apparent that you may not find the gold site in certain areas where the gold is clustered a more detailed gold map is required.

The 1:100,000 scale gold map, about 1'' = 1.6 miles, defines and area of 1/2 degree (30 minutes) latitude and 1 degree (60 minutes) of longitude or a 30' x 60' grid. 4 of these maps show the same area as shown on the base gold map with a 1:250,000 scale.  However, a lot more detail is shown on the 1:100,000 scale map which includes secondary roads, smaller creeks and rivers, smaller towns and cities and jeep trails and hiking trails.  Section, township and ranges are defined on this map. (You will need the section, township and ranges if you want to file a claim or find out if a claim exists on a prospect or gold panning area.)  Contours are shown in more detail along the creeks, allowing you to estimate the creek slopes and find areas where the creeks flatten out.  Gold deposits occur at creek bends and places where the creek flattens out. 

                                     

                                                                              

RECREATIONAL PANNING ON PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LAND:

The following U.S. Government policy is quoted from a Department of Agriculture letter:  "Panning for gold is allowed in the general National Forest areas as long as no machinery is used and no environmental damage results.  No permit is required as long as this is a recreational endeavor or hobby and not a commercial venture."  Most mines and prospects are privately owned.  Persons desiring to pan on private property should first obtain permission from the owner.  Claims are allowed to be filed in the National Forest under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management.  Persons desiring to pan on claimed property should first obtain permission from the claim owner. 

FILING A CLAIM IN A NATIONAL FOREST:

 Contact the Bureau of Land Management in the state that you wish to file your claim. You will need a map to provide the section township and range of the area that you want to get a claim.  These gold maps are ideally suited for this process since these gold maps show areas in which gold has been found in the past and also show the section township and ranges on the 1:100,000 scale maps.
