    Check with the San Diego Chapter "Treasure Seekers". The area of Santa Rosa Mountain to San Jacinto mountain has been talked about in books as good areas for gems although most is taken up with 2 monuments now. The Wiley Well district just south and west of Blythe has lots of gem areas. Some well known is Houser and Potato patch geo beds, fire agate, chalcedony with a deep orange to chocolate color, amygdales, rhombs, jaspagate and agate. Some of this reaches into the Chuckawalla mountains (hills) and on the River Terrace area there is Fine quality agate, jasper and petrified wood. All of this is within the area reached by camping at the Willey Wells or Coon Hollow BLM campground. These are primitive campsites or camping is allowed on the open desert (dispersed camping).
    If you notice an error in the Online Mining Guide or with claim information please add in the updated information into the online mining guide to inform other members. Thank You Walter H. Eason
