I've found this map to be accurate for the 3 areas I've gone digging. I expect the rest is accurate as well

This is a good map    The weather oughta be great and the place infested with ticks... Dacite pits are a great place to score too  '  Plenty rock  '  Frank

Dacite pits south of Riley are a great choice for large superb rock. As for glass buttes type in glass buttes map on google images. Look over those and youíll do well. Itís a good few miles from the hardball till the serious picking. Stay left at the pond by the camp. The big butte is a waste, little butte is all obsidian. At the camp(flat by the roadside by the pond) the hillside has gold sheen. Iíll get a few pictures for ya. Posting it here rather than pm so others know. Bring a pry bar as those are the best tool there.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short. Amen.

This is my favorite map. Iíve used it on multiple trips and itís spot on.

Make sure to turn at mile post 77. Nicest road. Also fuel up as the gas station is a long long ways away.
