Topo Gold Maps

What topo maps say about where to find gold!

Topo maps contain some important information for the gold prospector. Elevation differences play a big role in how gold is driven downhill by gravity.

To see how to customize the look of your custom gold maps, watch this video…

I like to make the gold locations on my maps stand out in useful ways. For example it is useful to clearly see where current mining activity exists vs. historic closed mines. For that I use custom mine markers or icons.

    or are there enought public spaces to dig in for gold

    thank for all serge

    • Prospector Jess says

      It’s probably best for you to join a club in one of the major bearing areas near where you plan to prospect. Getting a claim this early in your journey is likely too soon.

  4. Vernon Singer says

    HI P.J.
    This Vernon, I live in E. Stroudsburg, Pa. I find some quartz in lots of places, I know gold has bin found near The Delaware River, but not much. I find the quartz in or on the grown near my home. Do you think that I may find gold here?

  6. Gregg lyell says

    hi. i see you mentioned the Alaskan idiots that are traveling all over the world to find gold and cannot find their ass with both hands. Now i see they are diamond mining and having been a diamond miner for 14 years in Sierra Leone i can tell you that diamond that they found was worth about $100 max but to them it is the Holy Grail of diamonds. I guess ignorance is bliss as they say.
    I am trying your gold maps info pack and see how it goes. I know about the government areas already and have several of their maps for mexico mining as well but I am always looking for something new.

    Thanks for the info and have a great new year.
