While a large number of locations have yielded some placer gold, most of the state’s placer production has come from a few productive districts.

Pumping Water With Solar Power


Solar energy can be used for any size placer or hard rock mining operation. It is most practical for small and longer-term operations provided your mine is not located in a dense forest.

Ash Fork Calm After Explosives Theft


The tiny, unincorporated town of Ash Fork blazed into the national spotlight with the announcement that 1,000 pounds of explosives were stolen from a nearby mine.

Oil Seeps in Arizona


Compared to California, Arizona has virtually no oil seeps. But, the great Permian Basin of West Texas has virtually none either. Arizona has something that neither California nor Texas have, and that is public lands that are open for leasing. The northern half of Arizona has more seeps and is thus of greater interest, but it would be foolish to disregard the southern half because giant oil and natural gas fields could underlie some of the broad desert valleys.

The North Star Mine


Back in the early 1800s, there was a gold mine being dug in a mining community called Garden Valley. Garden Valley is located northeast of Sacramento, between Georgetown and Coloma. They called it Garden Valley because there were some miners who thought there might be more money in growing and selling vegetables than in mining for gold.
