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 the past gold mines, placers and prospect sites. 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. In 1990, an 8 ounce nugget was found on the slopes of Pennsylvania Mountain, west of Alma, in Park County, Colorado. The picture to the right is mountains in the vicinity of Durango, Colorado
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. 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. 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,(public land) however, one must first obtain permission from the claim or land owners to pan on claimed areas and on private lands. One can use the GPS coordinates as shown in these maps to determine if an area of interest is claimed or not by going to the website of the blm.gov. National forest boundaries are shown on these USGS maps, however one should verify the national forest areas with the state forest service prior to panning.

The mother lode of gold runs from Boulder, Colorado, south west to Leadville, Colorado. The largest cluster of claims and mines were located just to the west west of Denver, along Clear creek, near Idaho springs. (15 miles due west of Denver on I-70, and the elevation rises about 5000 feet.) The gold sites follow the continental divide, and are located to the east of the divide from Boulder to Denver, and found mostly by the streams. Steep drops are noted around alpine peak, and grays peak (14,000 feet) down to the stream valley. (10,000 feet) Many gold sites are found on both sides of the divide near Leadville. Other gold sites are shown from Aspen to Bailey. Many gold sites, in the national forest, are located near paved roads and trails. There are many hiking trails in this area.
THE LEGEND OF TREASURE MOUNTAIN. The legend is that in the late 1700's Napoleon of France sent an expedition to find gold in America. The expedition found gold near Treasure Mountain, but were unable to get it out due to problems with the Indians, so they hid the gold that they found near Treasure Mountain. All but one or two members of the expedition were killed by the Indians, and those two barely escaped back to tell about the gold. Legend has it that the gold is still hidden somewhere near Treasure Mountain. Treasure mountain is shown in the Leadville portion of the gold maps. There are many gold sites found in this area.

Beware of mining claims in the national forest. These folks do not take kindly to trespassers. Look before you pan.
Always look for the claim markers. To help you avoid panning in claimed areas, the bureau of Land Management (BLM),
which grants the mining claims, provides
a website to show you where active claimed areas are located. The new updated website is easy to use.
*** BLM ACTIVE CLAIMS ***
Another way to get the Township, Range and Meridian of a prospective gold site is to goto
