Using Gold & Gem Maps
America’s riches become evident when you study our carefully compiled Gold & Gems maps. Across the western USA, known deposits of precious ores and gemstones still await those willing to discover them. Our company’s founder spent 40 years researching authentic historical maps, various government archives, state geological reports and numerous documents and publications. Then he tested his findings by searching out many locations himself; exploring distant mountains, sweeping desert vistas, deep green woods, and innumerable back roads – so others could easily find those geologic wonders. The result is a trove of Gold and Gem map packages for Arizona, Northern California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington showing reported occurrences of gold & gem deposits for the past 100 years.show more
