There is still gold in the creeks and streams in Wyoming. 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. The days 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. In 1995, a 27 ounce nuggett was recovered from Strawberry Creek, in the South Pass Mining District, Wyoming. Jackson Lake is shown in the picture to the right with the Grand Teton Mountains in the background, near Jackson Hole.

History - South Pass Gold Rush took place in 1867 after a mountain man named Lewis Robinson discovered a sizeable amount of gold near South Pass, Wyoming. News of the find had men coming to this area and by 1868 to 1870 there were over 1500 lode mines in the area. The population of South pass was about 2000 people at its peak in 1870. A man named Lewis found gold on Strawberry creek in 1876. 21,000 ounces of gold bullion was found in the lode mine. Gold prospectors fanned out to the areas to the north around present day Jackson Hole and found some gold in this area too. The gold played out by the 1890's, but mining operations continued in the South Pass area through out the 1900's and even in 2006, Fremont Gold was prospecting the area near Dickie Springs, just a little south east of South Pass. (Shown on the South Pass Gold Map) Today there is about 32 people living at Atlantic City, just north of South Pass City. South Pass city was bought by the State of Wyoming and has restored many of the original buildings and is a visitors park.

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.
