There is still gold in the creeks and streams in California. 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. In 2014, a nugget weighing over 5 pounds ( 75 troy ounces) was found somewhere in Butte County, California by a prospector metal detecting and was named the Butte Nugget. Butte county is located in Northern California and includes the town of Oroville.(Chico and Yuba City gold maps) In 1977, the 156 ounce Mojave nugget was found by metal detecting at a shallow depth. The gold nugget was found in southern California on the south side of the El Paso Mountain Range, near Randsburg, California. (Cuddleback Lake Gold Map.) The picture to the right is Mt. Shasta
A portion of the Happy Camp Gold Map near Weed, California, 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 devise 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. Jeep trails, forest service roads and trails, streams, lakes and road are shown in the gold maps. The picture to the right is a stream in the Klamath National Forest. Recreational Gold panning is allowed within the National Forest.
