Little San Domingo, Arizona Edition
The San Domingo District has the largest recorded placer gold production in Maricopa County. It has produced continuously since its discovery in the 1870's. Five major gold bearing washes drain the mountains in the north to the Hassayampa River. Access to the southern part of this area is very easy and many prospecting clubs have claims here. The placers occupy a belt 6 or 7 miles long by an irregular width along the drainage system of San Domingo Wash. The placers are not confined to stream beds alone but are found also on some of the gravelly mesas that separate gulches.
This Footprint covers over 35 square miles of productive placer ground. High Resolution Aerial Imagery at 9" resolution covers the entire region. This quality imagery lets you clearly identify old roads, mines, diggings and tailing piles. Color changes on the surface clearly indicate various types of bedrock in certain areas. All FootPrints standard layers are available showing, the topography, hydrography, ownership and much more. Located just 25 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona. Area offers excellent opportunities for metal detecting and dry-washing.
