    Missouri/Ozark gold?

    Is there any gold in Missouri, or the ozarks? There are a few posts on other sites about a couple of people who uncovered specks and stuff. Does anyone have any information about gold in Missouri?

    There' also this chapter. http://www.offroadusa.net/ozark/Index.html
    Went down into SE Okla., panned a little but only found a little color-just enough to sparkle a bit of the pan. Oh well, they say it's easy to find gold, it's just hard to make a living at it. Hopefully will have better luck next time.

    Re: Missouri/Ozark gold?

    Thanks, but what I suppose my real question is; should I expect to get 3 or 4 specks out of a days work? Is there any gold bigger than that?

    Re: Missouri/Ozark gold?

    not to sure one what you might find in MO .. but i find 10 -20 specks as you say in about 3-4 hours worth of sluicing by myself.

    but those specks add up .. it is the pleasure of finding it and the hunt so to speak that keeps me going out there. In Ohio that is.

    Best of luck

    in missouri it all depends on your prospecting skills! its all glacial drift gold. in northern missouri ive found lots of fines and small peices big enough to pick up but not what would be called a picker.youve got to do your home work and study where the glacial drift was and then work down stream of it in the creeks! best bet for the bigger peices is to look down the middel of the creek. it seems the fines blow out to the sides.

    Im also in Missouri, but the extreme southwestern corner. about 2 miles from the oklahoma, arkansas, missouri cornerstone. what part of oklahoma were you at Stonebrook 56?
    In the articles I have read, most of the mentionable gold is north of the missouri river. We are about 2 hours (more or less) from Branson and the ozarks, I have heard that there is good stuff there.
    Would be glad to share info with anyone else in Mo.

    I would be glad to know any info you know on prospecting here in Missouri. I'm here in Springfield... and I've wondered often about being able to pan for gold here in some of the creeks. I've found some spots that really looked promising, though I know this state isn't known for it's gold. lol Guess the next step would to just give up and get some pans and just try...

    Re: Missouri/Ozark gold?

    most of the land in Missouri is privatly owned, so the owners permission is required! like they said, a general rule for placer drift gold is north of the Missouri river. but get a map showing the glacial drift limits in the midwest and go from there. Chuck Lassiter has a book out on the glacial drift for the midwest. hes over on www.midwestprospector.com and he has a lot of info on his site aswell as info on his book and a video on dredgeing in the midwest also.good luck!

    But it's alright to pan (not dredge) in a State Forest area, correct?
