    I'm not sure if it's the new guide but the map doesn't show any locations in VA or PA.

    I can send you some locations from the USGS in VA & PA that tested positive for gold but most if not all are on private property. You would need to get permission.

    Where in PA are you? I'm in NJ in Wildwood. I've gotten gold right here in Cape May County from USGS soil sample reports.

    These are VA, NC & SC locations. The X's are old gold mines, the other markers are soil/sediment samples that contain gold. I'm making a site & android app that will show locations and reports from every gold bearing State.

    Im not completely positive but I think any gold found in Pa. is glacial. Look up glaciation maps of the state and that will give you a general idea of where you need to go to find gold. Then hunt down glacial moraines and rivers/streams running through or beside them , pay attention to the type of rocks you see in the gravel , you are looking for a mix of a bunch of different kinds and a lot that dont appear to be typical of the area. You start seeing quartz and green or red colored stones you are probably in the right area , these stones make up a lot of glacial debris. This is where you find the gold.

    Prospecting
    I've pretty much come to terms with the fact in order to find something in my pan, I'd be better off going out-of-state. If anyone out there from Ohio, Maryland or West Virginia would be interested in getting together for a day to dig (or could point me in the direction of someone who might be), let me know. I would appreciate any help you guys could offer. Thanks!!!

    Even though the GPAA doesn't own claims in PA, that doesn't mean that they don't find gold in PA. The Bald Eagle GPAA has outing every couple of months to places where they have recovered gold. You just cannot obtain a mining claim in any of these places. We found some color on the Sinnemahoning this summer. Nuggets have been found in Pennfield in Clearfield County.

    GOLD SITES FROM THE INTERNET

    1. Wind Gap, Pa. If you get to see this place, It sticks out like a sore thumb, Its just so much rock and water in the area. Also lots of public land and access to the water area. This has been known to have reported Gold Occurrences since 1828-1829 Pennsylvania Geologic survey, and Gold was removed by many prospectors back then



    2. Knuckle Town, Pa. Gold was first found here in a Paint Ore Mine around the time of the Civil War. Today one can still find it along the Appalachian trail plenty of public land both state and federal.



    3. Reading,Pa. Gold has also been found out and around the reading area in the lower part of the state being the gold was associated with the iron.



    4. Stony Brook Creek (Tunkhannock Area) finds being reported



    5. Messhoppen Creek (Tunkhannock Area) finds being reported



    6. The old lead mine behind Lake Carey, Check this out on the courthouse map in Tunkhannock bring your Camera, map is 6foot by 10 foot



    7. Wyalusing,Pa. Nugget found behind Wyalusing Hotel, reported by motel owner, nugget found by a new-york fisherman.



    8. Noxen,Pa. A man called and stated small forms of gold was found on his farm in that area and was asking me, what should he do with it!!!!



    9. Cordus State Park, A gold prospector reported to me that he found Gold dust and Pin head gold nuggets in and also outside the park in a creek.



    10 The Kress Gold Mine, near Sweden Valley off of route6 one of three commercial gold mines in the state, needs no explanation.



    11. Swarata Creek, Near Harrisburg,Pa Well known for gold deposits for many years



    12. The New Albany Gold Mine (located outside of New Albany, Pa.) on route 220 heading south less than 3 miles outside this village.
    On 6/20/96 Miss Judy Drake and myself did some prospecting, one mile north of town, near the school bus turn around and the old railroad bridge, we exactly didn't get rich but fine gold did show up in the pan. This place has easy access, being its either railroad property or township property. If you get a chance, its worth a days outing.


    13 The Three Brothers Gold Mine(True name, was never picked by these brothers) It is located across highway 220 some distance from the New Albany Gold Mine <in the same area as mentioned in 12>
