GENERAL GOLD INFO
A Duck Gold Panning A one ounce gold nugget will bring $2,000 to $4,000 on the collectors market.

Per a letter from the Department of Agriculture, no permit is needed for recreational gold panning and gold prospecting in the general national forest areas, provided no machinery is used. Our gold prospecting and panning maps show many national forests with gold deposit sites. 

The gold prospecting and panning maps tell you how to pan for gold, where to look for gold in a streambed and how to tell fool's gold from real gold. You can quickly learn panning by following the gold panning instructions on your map.  Some people like to pan for gold at public rights of way where bridges cross gold-bearing streams. Treasure hunters use their metal detectors in gold prospecting and to hunt for coins and jewelry at the rural churches and schools shown on the gold prospecting and panning maps in the southeastern states.

You will enjoy prospecting and panning as the maps guide you to the gold mining and prospecting locations. A streak of gold mines and gold prospecting sites extends from near Montgomery, Alabama to Washington D.C. The gold was placed there when Africa overrode North America about 250 million years ago. North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Alabama have many gold mines and gold prospecting sites. These states were our main domestic source of gold for 45 years before the 1848 California gold discovery. In 1837, the US Government established gold coin mints in Georgia and North Carolina, rather than transport the raw gold from the southern gold mines to the Philadelphia Mint. Prospecting and panning information for each state will be found by clicking on the links in the left-hand margin of this page.

The largest true California gold nugget weighed 54 pounds. A 195 pound mass was also found. The 6,600 gold mining and gold prospecting sites shown on our six California gold prospecting and panning maps are continuous from Mexico to Oregon and to the Arizona and Nevada state lines. All gold mines and prospecting sites on the gold  prospecting and panning maps are from official geological records. Recreational gold prospecting and panning in California is a very popular hobby. Prospecting and panning information for each of the six California gold mining and prospecting regions will be found by clicking on the gold prospecting maps links in the left-hand margin of the page.

We do suggest, however, that on first viewing, the first few short pages be read prior to getting into the prospecting and panning details for each state. The next page is GOLD PROSPECTING, GOLD PANNING .
