Oregon is a relatively small gold producer compared to other Western states (it ranks 11th in gold production, just ahead of Washington and New Mexico). Major gold districts are concentrated in southwest Oregon in the Klamath and Siskiyou Mountains and in the Northeast part of the state in the Blue Mountains and surrounding ranges. Oregon had a somewhat significant mercury mining industry through the central and southeastern part of the states.
