The present district includes all of Lodi Hills areas, but not Mammoth which is in the present Ellsworth district.

Lodi Placer District Description
Small placers were worked in the Lodi and Mammoth districts between 1935 and 1938. Lode-gold deposits in the districts (often considered to be one) are found in such widely separated areas as the southern tip of the Lodi Hills (T. 13 N., R. 36 E.) and the Ellsworth area on the east lank of the Paradise Range (T. 13 N., R. 38 E.) across the Ione Valley from Ione. The placer gold was probably recovered in the vicinity of the lode deposits.
