GOLD LOCATIONS IN TEXAS






I used to live in Austin, Texas and I was a member of the Austin Metal Dectecting Club for many years. If anyone sees this Tell my good friends Larry Vickers and Truman Smith that I said "Hi". The quantity of gold Texas has produced has been small, but I have found some good spots around the Llano region to run a small dredge. Private Property in Texas must be respected.

Bastrop County Texas

All Exposures of the Eocene Aged sediments appeat ot contain finely disseminated gold particles. The gold hunter must use a geological map to locate this auriferous formation.

Gazley Creek

All along Gazley Creek, in the gravel deposits of the Eocene Age, you can pan some very fine gold. I panned this creek several years back and found about 3 colors per pan average. Dig Deep.

Walnut Creek

The area along Walnut Creek, just south of the Llano County line, in Cambrian conglomerates worked briefly in the 1890's for placer gold.

Gillespie County Texas

UT Austin panned gold out of the Sandy below the Enchanted Rock state park, this info found in a book "The Lost San Saba Mine" by C.F. Eckardt. They panned out a couple of hundred (1974ish) dollars of gold. Also was a small mining operation in the northeastern part of the county, about 20 miles from Fredericksburg. This info from UT Bureau of Economic Geology.

Howard County Texas

by Tom Ashworth


All watercourse and terrace gravel deposits have placer gold potential. Exposures of Pre-Cambrian metamorphic rocks in quartz veinlets and pegmatites have minor gold showings. You will need a geology map of the area.

Irion County Texas

by Tom Ashworth


Mertzon

Area exposures of iron stained, decomposed limestone has assays that show presence of minor amounts of gold.

Mason County Texas

by Tom Ashworth


In the north part of the county in the Mason Mountains, in the basal gravel and sand deposits of Cretaceous age, especially in the ancient valleys and channels, are possible natural concentrations of placer gold worth prospecting for.

Presidio County Texas

by Tom Ashworth


Shafter District

The Presidio Mine operated from 1880-1942 and was the producer of 90% of all the gold recorded in Texas. The mine was mainly a silver, lead and zinc mine with a by product of gold. Other area mines are the Chinati and Montezuma which were worked for lead and silver with a by product of gold.

Taylor County Texas

by Tom Ashworth


All watercourse and terrace gravel deposits have placer gold potential. Exposures of Pre-Cambrian metamorphic rocks in quartz veinlets and pegmatites have minor gold showings. You will need a geology map of the area.

Uvalde County Texas

by Tom Ashworth


All limestone exposures have minor gold showings.

Williamson County Texas

by Tom Ashworth


Georgetown

North of Georgetown 20 miles, in weathered outcrops of iron stained limestone, the assays made in 1883 showed presence of good values of gold. This is some real fine gold.
