According to the U.S. Geological Survey, 24 of the 50 states have gold mining operations. Gold is typically found in the Appalachian region or in the Western states. Most gold deposits are found in Nevada, and the Carlin, Nebraska area alone has seven gold mines in operation. As of 2001, Nevada – closely followed by California – had historically produced the most gold in the United States. However, the largest U.S. mine is the Homestake in South Dakota, and Bingham Canyon in Utah is the largest source of byproduct gold. The U.S. is the world’s second largest gold producer, after South Africa.
