We used to pan for gold in McKelligon Canyon. Didn't get much panning by hand. Anywhere there are mountains with water run off, there could be gold washed down. Also didn't want to stand in the sun for hours on end panning in McKelligon Canyon. The earth was formed with gold, just under the top layer, when the earth was first formed. It's most everywhere if you keep digging. Most of what has been found is/was very close to the surface and it washed down into small streams and gullies.
