Gold Prospecting in AZ

In that one sentence, Jack London captured every prospectors dream. While the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS) can’t promise you gold splashed like yellow butter across the bottom of your pan, they may be able to provide some insight into gold prospecting in Arizona.

Lots of publications that you can download for free

Thanks Jim.
The quote you mention is on the opening page of the site you provided the link for....

"“… a shallow placer in a broad valley where the gold
showed like yellow butter across the bottom of the washing-pan.”
- Jack London, Call of the Wild
