GOLD LOCATIONS IN ARKANSAS

Arkansas was visited by Spanish explorers in the 1540's and had at least one major gold discovery. The gold mine the spanish found is today called "The Old Spanish Diggings", but the early spanish missed one thing, diamonds. The Crater of Diamonds State Park is located in Pike County Arkansas . The largest diamond ever found was "The Uncle Sam" which weighed in at 40.23 carats. There are many areas to rock and gem prospect throughout the state for amethyst, agate, jasper, quartz, calcite and barite.

The states main periods of gold prospecting occurred between 1800 and 1830. Both silver and gold have been found from the Ouachita Mountains. Gold here is often found in manganese stained quartz viens. In the Ouachita Mountains located in the Ouachita National Forest are public lands and open to non commercial rock hounding and prospecting. Check with district rangers before doing any activity.
