There is still gold in the creeks and streams in Oregon. 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. Crater Lake is shown in the picture to the right.
A portion of the Gold map from the Medford detail Gold map is shown below.
The gold sites are noted and shown with a numerical number next to each site are the REAL DEAL. These gold sites represent where gold has been found in the past. (Some online web sites claim that placer or lode active claimed areas as found in the blm data base represent present day gold sites. The blm does not categorize minerals shown in the claimed areas. An active claimed area may be prospected for a variety of minerals from gold to silver to tungsten to lead to rubies to quartz to sand.) The number is referenced to a north latitude and west longitude point. These are GPS points that you can use to find the gold sites in the field. The gold sites are shown adjacent to access roads and streams. The sites are plotted on a USGS topographic map which shows the contours 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 the Rouge River. Recreational Gold panning is allowed within the National Forest.

History - As a result of the California gold rush in 1848, gold was found in Southern Oregon around 1851. The prospectors from California moved north to areas around present day Medford and Roseburg to find gold. They established the early mining camps of Waldo and Ellensburg (Gold Beach). Placer gold was found in the black beach sand at Gold Beach. Other miners went north east to find gold near present day Grangeville and Canyon City and Baker City. The boom lasted until around 1869. 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.
