THE LOCATION AND MINERAL OCCURRENCE OF GOLD FOR THESE SITES CAME FROM EXTENSIVE RESEARCH OF THE IDAHO DATA FILES FROM THE U.S.G.S. DOCUMENTS. (MRDS FILES) 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.

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 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.

 

IDAHO GOLD MAPS

A portion of the Gold map from the Elk City Gold map is shown below.


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. Prospectors Association gold club claims areas are also shown on the maps, noted in the red and yellow clouded areas. 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.
