Ohio Gold

Ohio has many locations that you can pan for placer gold. Gold in Ohio has been left behind by glacial drifts thousands of years ago, and most of what you will find will be fairly small in size, although it is possible to find nice “picker” sized nuggets if you look in the right places.

Since there has been limited interest in the past, there are certainly areas in the state that have had very little prospecting done, so don’t be afraid to try new areas. The nature of glacial gold deposition means that there could be gold literally anywhere within the state.
