 IDAHO GOLD MAPS                


GOLD IN IDAHO - GOLD MAPS FOR GOLD PANNING, METAL DETECTING AND PROSPECTING WITH OVER  4,300 GOLD SITES. GHOST TOWNS, MINERS CAMPS AND HISTORICAL TOWNS ARE SHOWN ON THESE MAPS. GOLD MAPS ARE GREAT FOR GOLD PANNERS, PROSPECTORS, ROCK HOUNDS, METAL DETECTING, CAMPERS, AND GEOLOGIST. THE LOCATION AND MINERAL OCCURRENCE OF GOLD FOR THESE SITES CAME FROM EXTENSIVE RESEARCH OF THE IDAHO DATA FILES FROM  U.S.G.S. DOCUMENTS.  GOLD MAPS INCLUDE GPS DATA AND WERE PREPARED IN THE AREAS OF IDAHO IN WHICH THE MOST OCCURRENCE OF GOLD HAS BEEN FOUND AND ARE LISTED BELOW.     
 


The best chance to find gold in streams and placer deposits is to know where the occurrence of gold has been found. Before you dig or pan for gold  in the stream 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 stream deposit. Those days may be gone, but who knows, maybe with some luck you could find a gold nugget.

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. 

 

HOW TO DETERMINE IF AN ACTIVE CLAIM SITE EXISTS AT THESE GOLD SITES:

The Section, Township and Range are shown on the detail gold maps, scale 1:100,000.  Since the BLM (Burea of Land Management) uses the Section, Township and Range to define where an active claim site is located, all you have to do is go to the BLM web site and follow their instruction to find an active claim site.  Then you can plot the claim areas on these gold maps.  The BLM active claim areas taken from their web site show only a portion of a Section that a claim is located on, but it gives the claim owner and the claim number.  After you get the claim number, you can contact the BLM in the state you are prospecting in and for only the printing fee they will send you a copy of the actual claim that shows a detailed location of the claim.    In the field you will see claim stakes.

WHERE CAN I LEGALLY GO GOLD PANNING?

You are allowed to pan for gold in the national forest for recreational use without having to obtain a permit.  However, you can not pan in areas that have a claim. Claimed areas are staked out and noted as described above.  You can join a gold prospectors club and pan in their claim areas.  You may be able to pan in areas under the jurisdiction of the BLM, which is not in a national forest, but you must contact them prior to any panning.  You can file a claim, usually a placer claim with the BLM on a stretch of creek and for a yearly fee, $140 for  a 20 acres claim,  be allowed to pan for gold on your claimed area. You have to check with the local, state, county and federal authorities for use and size of dredges. You must get permission from private land owners prior to any gold panning on their property.
