This page offers information on gold producing areas in Amador County.

*NOTE.. This website reports areas of gold concentrations and does not assume responsibility for those who do not invest the time/effort to identify public vs. private land. Also... many gold producing areas that are described on these pages may have claims already established. The Bureau of Land Management provides maps that indicate public lands and current claims.

   Amador produced in excess of 14,000,000 ounces of gold. almost half of this production came from placer mining in the streams, creeks and rivers flowing through it, making it one of the most popular Counties for the serious modern gold prospector.

  Prosecting the creeks and streams north of the towns of Plymouth and Fiddletown are reportedly producing very well recently, as many sizable nuggets have been pulled from the Big Indian Creek.

  Dry Creek continues to produce gold respectably well. Although it is less accessible and often tough to get to. It can be well worth the trek considering the specimens the diligent panner or prospector can pull.

  There exists some aged gravels in the Forest Home area North of Ione (well west of Plymouth) that are supposed to be producing good color. Not really sizable gold nuggets have been reported to us, but consistently and some nice pea sized gold "clinkers".

  Prospecting the Consumnes River and tributaries, particularly in the area of the town of Plymouth have been successful consistently over the years.

  East of Jackson, Highway 88 borders the Jackson Creek. Panning the creek here has been producing well over the last ten years near Pine Grove and Highway104.

 Gold finds are reported on all three forks of the Mokelumne River which have traditionally shown fairly good placer gold concentrations. The Mokelumne River was hydraulic mined and much of the placer gold removed, however there has been respectable results recently by area prospectors using traditional panning methods.
