please naija people where can we find gold in Nigeria. please i want to know anybody to help out

Gold deposits are found in Northern
Nigeria, most prominently near Maru,
Anka , Malele , Tsohon Birnin Gwari-Kwaga ,
Gurmana , Bin Yauri, Okolom-Dogondaji ,
and Iperindo in Kwara State it is not very
dominant in the country.
Gold production began in 1913 and peaked
in the 1930s. During the Second World
War, production declined. Mines were
abandoned by colonial companies, and
production never recovered.
The Nigerian Mining Corporation (NMC)
was formed in the early 1980s to explore
for gold. Lack of funds, and the lure of
easier profits from oil production led to its
failure. There is no large scale gold mining
operation in Nigeria today, though there is
small-scale mining carried out by artists.
The family of Aleye from Anka is one of
the leading gold families in the region.

 I just hope you find thus helpful.
