There is still gold in the creeks and streams in South Dakota. 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. The days of easy pickings may be gone, but with some luck and a lot of determination you may find a gold nugget. There are present day stories of modern day prospectors, either panning or using metal detectors, finding nuggets today. The town of Deadwood, South Dakota, is shown above, which is located in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

 

SOUTH DAKOTA GOLD MAPS

A portion of the Gold map from the Rapid 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. A 'P' next to a gold site indicates placer gold deposits were found in this area. The gold sites are plotted on a USGS topographic map which shows the contours of the land. The old miners / ghost towns are shown in an ellipse with name of the town or site printed in the ellipse. Also shown are claim areas for the GPAA prospectors club in the yellow shaded box. Gold panning is allowed in the national forest.
