    Gold locations Arizona

    Just wondering if anyone has ever heard of gold being found in Northern, AZ. Mainly around Flagstaff, Williams, Seligman areas?

    If gold is where you find it I'm wondering if these areas have potential at all.

    thanks, gold

    no! If you draw a line from NW corner Az to SE Az, the gold producing areas are south of that line.

    AZViper. Your map would probably be more correct if the dividing line went from its location nw to Flagstaff, then a little more ESE from Flag. The gray area is mostly up on the Mogollon Heights, also called the Colorado Plateau. A GREAT BIG sedimentary area, indicating an inland sea..... not condusive to gold occurrence. If you look for AZ mining districts, I don't think you will find any on the Colorado Plateau. TTC

    A short piece of the Wikipedia decription.... The Mogollon Rim's limestones and sandstones were formed from sediments deposited in the Carboniferous and Permian Periods. Several of the Rim's rock formations are also seen on the walls of the Grand Canyon. In many places, the Rim is capped or even buried by the extensive basaltic lava flows.
    The uppermost sandstone stratum of the Mogollon Rim, called the Coconino Sandstone, forms spectacular white cliffs, sometimes several hundred feet high. This formation of the Permian Period is of aeolian (windblown) origin and is one of the thickest sand-dune-derived sandstones on earth. TTC

    The map says it all. Nearest good area to you would be in the Bradshaw Mountains. Lynx Creek near Prescott Valley is a good spot.

    Here are two maps, both from Eldrid Wilson, that show gold occurrences in northern Arizona. The first is of placer districts. The second is of lode districts. As you can see, north and east of Flagstaff is DEVOID of districts. The credentials of Mr. Wilson are indisputable. Based on these publications, and others I have, I am convinced that the looking for gold on the Colorado Plateau (Indian Reservations notwithstanding) would be futile. TTC

    Was only a quick drawing based on what AUDuke had mentioned. Should have done my homework...

    TerryC is correct. I can tell you this for certain though...there are meteorites on the Colorado Plateau. An "out of this world" treasure that is equally (if not more) exciting to find as gold.

    No problemo, AZV. Gold has actually been found in and around sedimentary rocks (limestome lenses would be one). The problem with the Plateau is it is HUNDREDS of feet thick and much is lava covered. NOT a place where most miners would want to look! TTC
