The most prominent orange mineral in Arizona is wulfenite. So I did a search around Lake Havasu City and found this particular mine. I'm not saying it's 100% wulfenite but the link below gave me an idea.

Here's some more general information on collecting around Lake Havasu City if you don't already have it. I'm sure there's more detailed info in some of the guide books on Arizona mineral collecting localities. You'll get even more information from the long time rockhounds that belongs to the club.
