Little Tujunga Canyon Gold Prospecting


Little Tujunga Canyon

Interested in this area?  Well, here’s a tip.  Go to 5000+ ft elevation, and look for red iron streaks in the cuts on the side of the road.  That red dirt is gold bearing, though its not just laying there for you to pick up.  If you are into Metal Detecting, you may wanna try the Gold Creek area.  Though, the old timers raped it pretty hard.  Bottom line, there is gold in little tujunga.  However, we arent crazy about that area.  Yea, there’s those spots James Klein mentioned in 1978 LOL.  Yes, there is gold, but are you trying to fill vials, or get fly poop?
