The southwest part of Colorado was the last area properly explored by US gold prospectors as they migrated across the state. Many towns such as Ouray, Telluride, Silverton, Durango, Rico, Dolores and Placerville owe their existence to the early prospectors. While my book (learn more about it here) and various

Our next-door neighbors in Utah have some beautiful lands worth exploring. This is also true for gold prospecting in Utah. While there was never a real gold rush in Utah, there are accessible placer deposits in each quadrant of the state. If you are interested in learning more, you need 
Gold bearing placer streams in Colorado are generally many thousands of years old, sometimes millions of years old. In that much time, a stream can move around and erode much deeper into a valley. As this happens, cobble deposits containing gold can be orphaned, or left behind, by the flowing 
When exploring old mining districts across Colorado, prospectors may run into hard rock mines with ore dumps nearby. These large piles of brocken rock from underground can contain impressive gold/rock specimens and overlooked ore. Mine-side ore dumps are often a combination of barren rock removed as the original miners followed 
Many of the waterways of Colorado are gold bearing and carry flood gold downstream during high water seasons. As many placer gold prospectors quickly learn, flood gold accumulates in cobble bars. Studying the details of how gold accumulates in a cobble bar will dramatically increase gold production for casual prospectors.

Land conversion in due to artisanal gold mining = that of urban expansion.New mining extent (2005 and 2019) was dominated by artisanal mining (~89%).Over 700 ha of artisanal mining was detected in protected areas.This mining is degrading and destroying forested ecosystems.
Gold mining has played a significant role in Ghana's economy for centuries. Regulation of this industry has varied over time and while industrial mining is prevalent in the country, the expansion of artisanal mining, or Galamsey has escalated in recent years. Many of these artisanal mines are not only harmful to human health due to the use of Mercury (Hg) in the amalgamation process, but also leave a significant footprint on terrestrial ecosystems, degrading and destroying forested ecosystems in the region. In this study, the Landsat image archive available through Google Earth Engine was used to quantify the total footprint of vegetation loss due to artisanal gold mines in Ghana from 2005 to 2019 and understand how conversion of forested regions to mining has changed over a decadal period from 2007 to 2017. A combination of machine learning and change detection algorithms were used to calculate different land cover conversions and the timing of conversion annually. Within the study area of southwestern Ghana, our results indicate that approximately 47,000 ha (2218 ha) of vegetation were converted to mining at an average rate of ~2600 ha yr1. The results indicate that a high percentage (~50%) of this mining occurred between 2014 and 2017. Around 700 ha of this mining occurred within protected areas as mapped by the World Database of Protected Areas. In addition to deforestation, increased artisanal mining activity in recent years has the potential to affect human health, access to drinking water resources and food security. This work expands upon limited research into the spatial footprint of Galamsey in Ghana, complements mapping efforts by local geographers, and will support efforts by the government of Ghana to monitor deforestation caused by artisanal mining.
