Gold Found!

Yep, you could go gold mining in North Carolina and find gold! Lots of people do it, and gem mining too, rubies, sapphires, garnets and even emeralds. The Reed gold mine in North Carolina is said to be the first documented gold find in the United States, and North Carolina led the nation in gold production until 1848, when the great gold rush to California started. Bearwiskers wants to go gold mining in North Carolina!

  1. Kewl! When do we go? I really want to do that! Let's see if they are open in Late September or October when it's cooler out.
