WYOMING GOLD MAPS

GOLD IN WYOMING - GOLD MAPS FOR GOLD PANNING, METAL DETECTING AND PROSPECTING WITH OVER 150 GOLD SITES. GOLD MAPS ARE GREAT FOR GOLD PANNERS, PROSPECTORS, ROCK HOUNDS, CAMPERS, AND GEOLOGIST. THE LOCATION AND MINERAL OCCURRENCE OF GOLD FOR THESE SITES CAME FROM EXTENSIVE RESEARCH OF THE WYOMING DATA FILES FROM THE U.S.G.S. DOCUMENTS. GOLD MAPS INCLUDE GPS DATA AND WERE PREPARED IN THE AREAS OF WYOMING IN WHICH THE MOST OCCURRENCE OF GOLD HAS BEEN FOUND AND ARE LISTED BELOW.

The best chance to find Gold in 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. Jackson Lake is shown in the picture to the right with the Grand Teton Mountains in the background, near Jackson Hole.

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 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 which include the town of South Pass and Atlantic City. Wyoming Prospectors Association (WPA) gold club claims areas are also shown on the maps. This portion of the gold map shows gold sites along Cottonwood Creek, which is in the Teton National Forest.
