UNITAH COUNTY UTAH

LOCATION

COUNTY:Unitah County

STATE:Utah


Unitah County is not a noted producer of gold, but some 1,500 ounces have been recovered from placers on the Green River in this century alone. Most of the workable area is near Vernal. Like much of Utah's Gold, it is very fine and can be recovered with modern equipment only by using great car. Most of the gold was found at Horseshoe Bend, near Jensen and just below Spit Mountain Gorge.
