    What exactly on Google Earth do you look for?

    What type of features should I look for when determining where to hunt? Obviously old camps, towns, tailings, or mines; but I'm thinking more about gold prospecting in particular. Rocky hills or mountains? Dry streams or creeks? What particular features should I be looking for?

    705 views and no comment? Lots of lurkers or just people not wanting to help?

    Depends on where you are, what type of hunting you're trying, what you are looking for. More information might help.
    Not all who wander are lost - Some of us are simply confused. (Apologies to J.R.R. Tolkein's memory)

    As mentioned, mainly gold prospecting areas. I.e. natural formations and what not that would likely yield rich ore. I'm in California.

    i dont do much in the lines of gold panning but if would think that areas that have very steep runoffs and end in a deep pool would be were i would look

    I look for old outlines of building foundations. This won't help you much with prospecting but it will help you find older sites if you want to detect. Good luck,

    if you interested in gold in ca., first thing I would do is, a search of public records for gold claims and where they are located, overlay their locations on a map of the area and get a topographical map of the same area to figure out elevations and which way the water runs. then a good plan would be to follow the water courses down stream and find pools of water, sharp bends in the rivers, bedrock that sticks up and search around them

    Very good advice. Can this be done on-line or do I have to go in person to the county clerk?

    I think that would depend on the county you want to search. some counties here in Kansas, you can find anything you want. others you have to go to the courthouse and search
