The state of Utah is the second largest producer of gold in the United States, following only the state of Nevada. This is directly attributable to the fact that the mineral-rich North American Great Basin province incorporates the western third of the state of Utah, and brings equal mineral riches to this part of Utah as are realized throughout northern Nevada.
The incredibly rich Great Basin province contains the majority of mineral
deposits found in Utah and also bears the greatest potential
for remaining undiscovered gold deposits in the state according
to the estimation of both the United States Geological Survey
and the Utah Geological Survey.
But although Utah's modern gold-producing mines are typically
found in the western third of the state, historical 'lost'
mines and yet-to-be-discovered finds elsewhere in the state
nevertheless remain widely open to the chance of casual
- or systematic - discovery.
We encourage all that have an interest in panning on mining for gold to go on an adventure here in Utah. You never know what you may find. We at Valley Goldmine Salt Lake help several local "gold diggers", with converting what gold they find into cash.
