Gold Prospecting Guide 2023

Gold Prospecting is one of the rarest elements on the planet. Only a tiny percentage of ground has any significant quantity of gold. I suppose that is the reason it is currently valued around $1500 per ounce!

If you like to metal detect for gold nuggets like I generally do, then we are talking about an even smaller percentage of areas that are going to be productive. Places where you could potentially swing a metal detector and find a gold nugget is way less than 1% of the landscape (In truth, it’s probably closer to .01%.).

If you are new to gold prospecting and you want to have a fighting chance of actually finding gold, then you are going to need to find a place where there is some gold to be found. If you just wander out into the hills aimlessly and think you are going to get lucky, I can assure you that you’d have a better chance of finding a needle in a haystack. You need a plan.

Research Process

The research process starts at home, before you ever set foot in the field. You need to decide where you want to go. But how do you start?

You start your research by thinking broadly, then narrowing down to a specific area the further you get into the process. I’m going to show you exactly how I do that.

Odds are you are going to want to look for an area that is relatively close to where you live, so you first want to find some information on the occurrence of gold in your area.

The first step is to find some information on historic mining activity in your state. Fortunately there is a lot of good general information out there. Any state that has a history of mining will have at least a book or two written about it. Assuming that you live in a place with gold, a quick search on should result in at least a couple books about mining in your area. This will get us started with some good general info.

Any general book that covers the entire state is great because you can identify regions that are worthy of further attention. A decent book like this will mention specific mines, rivers, and creeks where mining activity has taken place. Remember that anywhere that gold has been mined in the past still has great potential for the modern day prospector.

Gold on Public Land

So now we have determined a general area we want to do a little prospecting, and even have a few names of different creeks and rivers that interest us. Now we need to figure out if we can get to those areas an actually do a little digging.

Unfortunately not everywhere is open to prospecting. Obviously, there is private land to keep in mind. You can get maps that shows land ownership, or nowadays you can download an app for your phone that shows it.

You will likely find out that a lot of areas that you wanted to explore are on private property. Unless you get permission you aren’t allowed to prospect here.

One of the best tools for the modern prospector is Google Earth. You can use it to look for old mine ruins and other indicators of past mining activities like stacked rocks and mine tailings. Anything that lets you see the area before you get there will help you narrow down a location to explore.

Gold is Hard Earned, Now More than Ever

Even for knowledgable and skilled prospectors, gold can be hard to find. It’s not uncommon for someone who is quite capable of finding gold to drive several hours and spend several days and still come home empty handed. The days of pulling ounces of gold from the ground on a consistent basis are long gone.

Finding productive areas to search for gold is more challenging that ever. Gold doesn’t grow back. Yes, it does replenish from time to time due to erosion and natural weathering, but this is a slow process. Whenever someone digs up a nugget or cleans out a crevice, that gold is gone.

Research is more critical than it ever has been. Don’t depend on blind luck or you are sure to get disheartened and give up. There is still gold out there waiting to be unearthed, but you have to put in the time and effort required to locate those rare locations that have not been exploited by other miners.
