There is still gold in the creeks and streams in Idaho. 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 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. Picture above is the American River near Elk City, Idaho, where several placer gold deposit sites are shown on the gold maps.
A portion of the Gold map from the Elk City Gold map is shown below. (HWY 14 by the S. Fork Clearwater River.)
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 gold sites are shown adjacent to access roads and streams. 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. Roads are highlighted in red and old Miners Camps / Historical towns are shown on the gold maps. Hiking trails are noted by a 'H' in a red circle with a 'T' next to it. The picture to the right is a creek located in the Sawtooth National forest. Recreational Gold panning is allowed within the National Forest.

History - the first Gold found in Idaho was in Pierce, Idaho, in 1860 on the Orofino River, now within the Clearwater National Forest. (Gold sites shown in the Hamilton Gold Map.) The prospectors established many mining camps as they eventually spread out to the gold fields near Boise and further east into the Montana territory. The boom lasted until the 1880's. Modern day prospectors still pan and search for gold in these areas.

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.
