well, it would help if we knew what you wanted to hunt for......but one idea you might want to persue is look for some of those old film sites that are NOT on national park land or on an indian reservation.   I know a couple of people who have turned up good coins and interesting relics detecting at a site near here that was in an old movie.   Since Kanab has a long film history, it might be worth checking out.

The other thing is go to the library and read every old book on the town and county as you can as well as read through the old newspapers for the area.  They'll give you all kinds of leads as to where people met (and lost money), who might have had money they hid, etc.

In Utah, you can find placer gold, usually associated with volcanic rocks, within the Colorado River drainage system, including, for instance, the Dolores River (near Moab), Green River (in northeastern Utah), Abajo Mountain creek beds (southeastern Utah) and the San Juan River (southeastern Utah).  You may find that American Fork Canyon, which lies north of Provo and northeast of Utah Lake, will prove more rewarding than some other areas.  Near the canyon?s mouth, you might find a small nugget and some ?flour? gold. 
Out of the 15 counties in Arizona, you can find gold in at least 10 of them, mostly in the northwestern and southern part of the state.  Some prospectors like to work the drainage systems and hillsides in the Tonto Basin, west of State Highway 87, in the northwestern corner of Gila County.  Others take to the stream beds in the Lynx Creek area, a few miles south of Prescott, in the heart of Yavapai County.

Kanab has plenty of Spanish trail signs leading up the canyons.  The old Evan Childs property has been sold again so I'm thinking he cleaned out his treasure cave from above the moat below.  Johnson's canyon has some kind of hidden tunnel there.  I'd be checking out the spanish trails if it was me.  The Spanish were called back to fight the Mexicans in 1810 and cached all the gold they had mined thinking they'd be back.  There are many caches left to find.
