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. 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. The Organ Mountains, near Las Cruces, are shown in the picture to the right.

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. Ghost towns / Miners Camps / Historical towns are shown in the yellow ellipse on the gold maps. The Ghost Towns / Miners Camps and Historical Towns have GPS coordinates listed in the gold map. The gold sites as shown above are located in the Carson National Forest.
