GRAND COUNTY UTAH
by Tom Ashworth
Around 2,000 ounces of placer gold has been recorded in Grand County. The general area that is richest seems to be around the La Sal Mountains. the most productive areas were in Miners Basin, Wilson Mesa and Placer Creek.
Many of the regional mines produced lode gold in the Wilson Mesa area.
The Colorado River through much of Grand County has been placered, but the gold is very fine and difficult to recover.
