Here's a URL for UCB's Earth Sciences and Map Room: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/EART/browse.html Choose to browse the digital collection for California maps. This brings up over 350 selections. Click on "modify" (you are modifying a built-in search). Enter "gold" (no quote marks) in the empty box. This searches the 350+ selections for those with "gold" in their titles. You'll get several selections for viewing and/or downloading.

Try contacting the museum at the historical society in Sonora. They're in the heart of the Mother Lode and have an abundance of Gold Rush material: http://www.tchistory.org/
