    Gold Prospecting in Arkansas

    I've been having a heck of a time attempting to find location in Arkansas that are known to have at least a flake to find. The standard answer seems to be 12 Miles SW of Hot Springs, and "somewhere in the Ouachita National Forest". The GPAA has a claim "somewhere outside Mena". I've seen pics of gold found supposedly north of Little Rock, but of course exact locations were omitted. Anyone have any ideas? There used to be a guy named Jay that advertised paydirt in the GPAA magazine who lived in Mena that would give people maps of productive panning locations around the Mena area, but I've had no luck locating him. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    I did. Unfortunately, there were only trace amounts found in some really strange locations, fairly distant from where people have reported finding gold. Still a really neat link, I sure do appreciate it!
    Thanks again!

    make sure the silver piece isnt gold covered with mercury. Are you finding bedrock and evidence of previous mining. Id look for the oldest town in the area maybe the reason its there is gold.Go wherever the history books say they mined.

    I have looked as well and have had no luck finding any of this info. I am in Texarkana and have been up to Kriver in Oklahoma but have only found flower gold and nothing more. If you have any info I would appreciate the help. Also I have followed the Kiamichi river all the way back to the back side of Mena and have not found any gold other than flower. We have a site as well http://www.a2zlist.net if anyone want to post stuff forsale.
