Arizona Historic Gold Mining Locations

Arizona’s cumulative gold production exceeds 16 million ounces contributed from 219 metallic mineral districts. Twenty-six of those districts have produced more than 100,000 ounces and 46 have produced more than 10,000 ounces. Much of the past gold production has been a by-product of large scale copper mining. Arizona hosts a number of deposits with known potential to produce a few hundred thousand ounces or more. Arizona’s Metallic Resources 2008
