Here you can find information about Oregon gold prospecting and history.  From time to time, I will add other articles that relate to prospecting and events outside of the state of Oregon. I will try to add new articles and update this site as I go along and obtain more information about the places in Oregon where you can find gold. I also plan on adding some resources for where to find good gold mining equipment.  In our category area, you can search by location to get you started.

Feel free to send me gold prospecting information. Want to write an article? Send it to me. Send me pics of your Oregon gold! I will post that too!
