MOHAVE COUNTY, ARIZONA

Ranking second among Arizona's gold producing counties, Mohave County produced 2,461,000 ounces of lode and placer gold through 1959, with about 50 per cent coming from the San Francisco district at Oatman.

At Alamo Crossing of the Bill William?s River about 40 miles north of U.S. 60 at Wendon, in Yuma County there are many regional old mines, such as, the Little Kimball, which is located 5 miles back of the crossing with its Jim Rogers Mill now abandoned at the crossing. North of that 16 mile, at ghost camp of Rawhide straddling the "Owl Hoot" outlaw trail and temporary stopover where desperadoes could dig raw gold from adjacent Rawhide Butte you will find free milling gold.

Chloride is located about 60 miles northwest of Kingman in east part of the White Hills, the Gold Basin district: This area has many mines which produced lode gold. If you go west 9 miles, you will find the Pilgrim Mine which produced lode gold. If you go northwest by 25 miles, you will find the Mockingbird Mine and on east side of the Black mountains, 30 miles from town, you will find the Gold Bug Mine which lode gold. In the Cerbat mountains, the Cerbat Mountains district produced gold, lead, silver, zinc. If you go east 1.5 miles from Chloride, near middle of west slope of mountains, you will find the Pay Roll Mine, and if you go west 1.5 miles, on the pediment, you will find the Tintic Mine. If you go east 2.5 miles, you will find the Rainbow Mine, and if you go east 3.5 mile, you will find the Samoa Mine which was the most active and constant producer through 1908 for lode gold and silver in the county.

Colorado River

Along the Colorado River downstream from mouth of the Grand Canyon in all river bars, you will find placer gold. In all elevated bars and benches formed by tributary streams, there are also many placers. At Willow Beach ,65 mile northwest of Kingman north to near Hoover Dam Highway, an ancient river bar near outer bow of the Colorado River ,250 acres, you will find the Sandy Harris Placer. Also; 2.5 miles north of Pyramid Rock, Colorado River benches contain placer gold.

Southeast 18 miles of Topock, in southwest part of the county, in foothills of the Chemehuevis or Mohave mountains, the Chemehuevis placers can be found. At southwest foot of the mountains, in area of the Red Hills, the Mexican or Spanish diggings were the most productive placer gold diggings in the area. On the northeast side of the mountains, in Printerís and Dutch gulches, also rich placers can be found. Southeast, in the Mohave mountains, area placer and lode gold mines are also very rich. Southeast 55 miles, you will find the Best Bet (Kempf) Mine which produced lode gold. A few miles north of the Best Bet, the Gold Wing Mine, with other area prospects had some rich lode gold. On the opposite side of mountains, you will find the Dutch Flat Mine which was a rich lode gold mine.

Absolutely
If you get that burning uncontrollable urge you can still have 5 shots at the Claim Jumper whiskey bar

Also try a heaping helping of " THE MOTHER LOAD CHOCOLATE CAKE " as a chaser

Heck I've been prospecting for years and even at 400 the ounce it still can be very profitable.
