    Free BLM land ownership maps, Topos, and Gold Maps online

    Hi, a friend recommended I post the mapping app I built here. I made it for mining and prospecting but it's useful for all kinds of exploring and treasure hunting too. It's all free, you just need the Google Earth web plugin (also free) to make it work, there will be a link to download it if your browser doesn't already have it pre-installed.

    Here is the link: Virtual Prospector

    I've got BLM surface ownership maps, USGS topos, US placer gold locations, international gold mines/prospects, meteorite maps, geology maps, rare earth element maps, and lots more.

    I've got permission to add the Rumsey historical maps too, so soon you'll be able to browse those overlayed on Google Earth imagery or any other map layers. I've used them to find new locations for relic hunting and coin shooting.

    If anyone has an additional layer they want added, let me know! It has to be a free source though because I want to keep this app free for all to use. Be aware that some of the geology layers are quite large (50mb) and may take a long time to load before appearing, depending on the speed of your internet connection.

    Mods, I hope it's ok for me to post this link here, please accept my apologies if not.

    I added some historic US maps and topos to Virtual Prospector. Useful for both prospecting and relic hunting! You can overlay our gold placer locations, mines, prospects, etc onto these maps.

    These are used with permission from the Rumsey Map collection which is a great map resource for those who haven't seen it yet, you can browse his full collections there, I've included only the more relevant ones. Enjoy!

    Casca, let me know what the issue is and I will see if I can help.

    Let me add here real quick: Virtual Prospector is not yet compatible with Linux based systems or mobile devices like iPhone or Android. This is because Google hasn't released a plugin for them yet, hopefully soon!

    Great tool, Jason. Much appreciated. Sometimes I have trouble getting the mines and prospects to come up, but overall it works OK.
    Many thanks,
    Jim

    I have found that on the BLM site blm.gov If you pick surveys and you can either ask for original survey or even homestead applications and get some real old maps with building locations on them. Some states call them rectangular surveys. In Utah you have to search by township and range number. i would be glad to tutor any one who would like help. On a site for Nevada they had some survey notes which said gold bearing quarts off to the left.
