Victorian Online Gold Maps
Historic Geological Maps


Victorian Online Gold Maps is an easy to use mapping package to help gold prospectors discover gold bearing ground in Victoria, Australia. It can be used on a PC, tablet or mobile phone.

The Victorian Gold Maps can be viewed in either map view or satellite view using Google Maps. You can even get directions to the gold mine or other feature of your choice. Use your mobile phone, when out in the field, to identify the nearest gold mine, shallow workings or quartz reef, to increase your chances of finding that elusive nugget.

Information is provided on Victorian gold mines (colour coded to display reef gold or alluvial gold), shallow workings, quartz reefs both worked and unworked, deep leads and Crown land and each set of data is listed alphabetically to enable you to easily find a site of interest. The information provided in the Gold Maps of Victoria is far more extensive than any paper maps. The mapping system is easier to use than many other systems including Geovic. 

There are 17 maps in the series. 12 Goldfield District Maps cover 172 named Victorian goldfields. There is also a map that provides links to 154 historic geological maps. Four other maps are provided free of charge to subscribers and show details of Heritage Sites, Planned Burns, Streams where prosepecting is suposedly prohibited and a map that shows were you can and cannot prospect is areas managed by Parks Victoria.

The maps are available on an annual subscription basis, see the Gold Maps page for details.

"I wanted to thank you for the detailed information you provide on your maps. I especially like the addition of the unnamed quartz reefs. I have used this information a few times and have found gold where some of the reefs are located on three occasions now. The latest piece I found last week weighed in at 27.75 grams" - David.
