GOLD LOCATIONS IN CALIFORNIA

The great "Gold Rush of 1849" caused California to be named "The Golden State". Even today, gold mining continues on a large scale. Gold ranks 3rd in California's mineral production. The state has produced over 150 million ounces of gold with most of that being produced in "The Mother Lode" placer mining areas.
