Where are the better places to go after Gold Ore? Right now I either go to the Fields of Fornost or outside of Esteldin. Throughout my time in the Lone Lands, I never saw high concentrations of any ore. I know it is on the same timer as Rich Iron, so I look for both of those as I am exploring.
Evendim has gold ore (East and North quadrants; West and South have platinum, if you know where to look); the Lone Lands has gold ore (East side more than West); the North Downs (not just the Fornost area, but most of the area all around Esteldin) has gold ore.
I may have just been really lucky, but I was finding a lot of Gold near the group of Aurochs outside of Esteldin. It sounds like you're right around the same area though, so I might have gotten really lucky.
I can call you Betty, and Betty when you call me you can call me At.
