Miscellaneous Information for Goldfield ...

The Federal government has assigned various identifying codes to each community, county and state. At one time or another, the US Census Bureau has used one (or more) of the following identifiers when referring to either Pinal County or the community of Goldfield:

  • The GNIS Codes ...
    • The current system of identification is called the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS). The following GNIS codes relate to Goldfield:
    • GNIS ID for Goldfield: 29401
    • GNIS ID for Pinal County: 25447
    • GNIS ID for State of Arizona: 1779777
  • The FIPS Codes ...
    • An earlier (and largely obsolete) identification method was called the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS):
    • State Code: 04 (Arizona)
    • County Code: 021 (Pinal County)
    • Place Code: 28240 (Goldfield)
    • State & County Code: 04/021 (Arizona / Pinal County)
    • State & Place Code: 04/28240 (Arizona / Goldfield)
  • Misc. Census Codes ...
    • Goldfield would have been located in Census Region #4 (the West Region) and Division #8 (the Mountain Division).
  • The US Postal Service ZIP Code ...
    • While some people have used a ZIP code to identify a community, the purpose of the ZIP code was to make mail delivery more efficient by grouping addresses together. Although the ZIP Code doesn't specifically identify a community like Goldfield, it does identify addresses that are in (or near) Goldfield. It's important to remember that the boundaries of a ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned or overlapped with other ZIP Codes.
    • The ZIP code for Goldfield:85119<5>
  • Census ZCTA Codes ...
    • The US Census Bureau created statistical entities that they call ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs) and these ZCTAs are frequently confused with the ZIP codes that come from the US Postal Service (USPS).
    • ZCTAs were first created for the 2000 Census and at that time, they were based upon the USPS ZIP codes. While largely covering the same areas, the boundaries of a ZCTA do not necessarily match the boundaries of a postal ZIP code with the same number. For example, while a postal ZIP code can cross a county or state line, a Census ZCTA can not. They should be treated as separate entities with no correlation between them.

For more information about the various Federal identification codes, please visit our Misc Page for Goldfield.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Goldfield, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Goldfield) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Goldfield. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Goldfield

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Goldfield. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.4569, Longitude: -111.4918
