    None worth trying in oklahoma I had the same itch a couple years ago your best bet is to research where there is still plenty(west coast,nevada I believe etc) and plan a trip and hope you get lucky. Alaska too.

    I was watching to gold mining show on the Outdoor channel this morning and the show was talking about gold mining in Oklahoma. They talked about some caves by Muskogee. Went with a group around OKC in the Arkansas River. And a couple of other places. Might try to find that show online.

    When I think of Arkansas, I think of the panning for diamonds at Crater of Diamonds State park. Went there as a kid.:woohoo1:

    We pan when we are in the Rockies. There is places around Rogers and Fayetteville. We are planning on taking the kids during fall break, for a weekend. We will take the panning gear and the metal detector.

    on 69 hiway between Chouteau and Wagner there is a couple volcanic vents (funny looking hills) on the east side of the road. 30 years ago a geologist friend told me those would be a good place to look.
    the people that owned it wouldn't give permission back then. don't know about today.
    if theres a creek running from them, might try permission from a neighbor.
