    Re: Gold locations in Illinois?

    Gold was brought down by the glaciers in IL and deposited it wherever they were. Find the terminal morraines and check in creeks that flow through the morraines. Also, gold has been found in glacial outwash areas, such as in Jackson Co.

    Here is a map of glacial activity in IL.: http://geology.about.com/library/bl/...oisquatmap.htm
    Lookin' and pickin'!
