    Gold panning in the Balt/Wash area and parts of Maryland.

    I would also be interested in getting together with people who want to go gold panning. My research has found at least 2 places around the DC beltway but I would like to find some place that doesn't require traveling the beltways if possible.

    Anybody know of areas that are good for panning in Anne Arundel county?

    Re: Gold panning in the Balt/Wash area and parts of Maryland.

    I researched the Maryland gold history for 8 months while I was recooping from surgery, and 8 months later I made a newby educated guesstimate on where I would start my prospecting adventurers. I went to where my research indicated would be a place to find it and I did...in the first pan I had 3 grains. Where it has never been documented. I was almost peeing my pants from my lucky guess. Since I found my first color I have slowly prospected the area and retrieved over an ounce. IT'S THERE!......... You just have to research and sample,.... sample, .........sample........AU 4 you 2

    Believe it or not...in Harford County. There used to be a massive amount of mining here. One of the largest chrome mines was here.

    There are 2 spots off the beltway around the VA/MD border. I might have to hit Harford county now that someone mentioned it. Maybe somewhere along the Gunpowder rivers?

    The MD state geological survey reports of gold being found in MD, so there is still gold to be found in Maryland. Keep in mind that just about anywhere in the world you are talking about, there is still 80% give or take, still left in the ground.

    I don't know about Ann Arundel County but I used to pan for gold about 5yrs ago up Wisconsin Blvd and then left on River Rd just north of 495. There was an older retired geologist named Jack Nelson who used to take people and teach them how to pan for gold on the weekends. It was a wooded area in a residential area, and you would have no clue that there was actually gold there. We just parked on the side of the road and then it was a steep bank down to a creek that was part of Rock Creek?. On a weekend sometimes I would see 15 to 20 people out there with sluice boxes and pans. The gold was very small but I did on a few occasions see people who actually found little small pickers. I would like to go back there again when the weather gets nicer and do it some more.

    Here is a pic of me with Jack and others back in 2001 or 2002.....http://www.infiltec.com/gold/JNelson.htm

    Re: Gold panning in the Balt/Wash area and parts of Maryland.

    I live in cecil county and believe it or not port deposit md. has a history that hasnt been talked about metal detecting. Also Conowingo md is another hotspot. One reason is the conowingo dam's lake had flooded a small town called ark haven back in 1929. I'm betting on some relics in that area. I have a idea where it was through history writings and maps. Want to tag along some time that be cool anyone. As far as gold I will tag along with other people to go gold hunting. I got a 30 inch sluice box and a gold pan from gpaa. Did alittle gold sluicing and panning in port deposit stream had hardly no luck.. This year I prospected a few streams in pa. Big rocks means big gold. Lets go.

    Re: Gold panning in the Balt/Wash area and parts of Maryland.

    Glenns Falls I heard was a good place to find come color too. Evidently there is supposed to be a small vein that runs intermitently through Baltimore area.

    I did look this up on the Maryland geological survey website. Seems promising. Now if I can get my back fixed, buy a pan, build a sluice and get my carry permit I will be all set
    Make mine a double.....double eagle that is!!!!!

    Indeed! Is it possible to get some clarification on what kind of permit, if any, is required? I believe that I saw that panning in state parks is not allowed, UNLESS one has a permit. Is it possible to get a permit?

    Thanks!

    Will be vacationing in the Deep Creek area in Aug 2013. Any ideas as to where gold might be hiding in this area?

    Prospecting
    The Baltimore river in question above is not Glens Fall. Its Gwynns Falls. I live right by it. If I were to test pan that one I go just above Baltimore City. The part of it that I live by is just too dangerous to even try. The danger comes from the local people not the river. Be safe!
    I'm new to this forum. I've never prospected before. This adventure will start for me when the weather warms up a bit. My plan is to test pan the many small streams in the woods where I grew up. All of these streams flow into the Patapsco River in the Elkridge, Maryland area. Patapsco River - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    There are also Native American artifacts to be found in and around this river. It doesn't have to be gold to be good. I will not give up until I find a gold clinker or picker from my home river.
