I was notified of this rather interesting website that might be of some interest to people. It is a place where you can get the location of gold in the US. That's right GOLD!!!!.
It was sent to my department at school and I figured I would spread the word. Here is what the creator says:
We basically make it possible to view the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's active and abandoned gold mining claims database in Google Earth as a gold map. The result is a very accurate near real-time view of America's gold deposits.
There is a free sample map available on the site but your students may also have a free copy of any statewide map we have for their personal use. They would need to contact us through the site to obtain the free map. No questions asked:).
There you go, a free statewide GOLD map. Who can pass this up? I can't. I'll let you know how this turns out.
