Gold of the Appalachian States. Gold of the Appalachian States appears as fine particles and as nuggets. Some nuggets found in past years were: 3 oz, 4 lbs 6 oz, 8 lbs, 10 lbs, 12 1/2 lbs, 15 lbs, 25 lbs, and 28 lbs. Gold deposits extend from Central Alabama to northwest of Washington DC.

The Country's early gold production was concentrated in the Appalachian States. Old records state that as many as 3,000 slaves could be seen working on the gravel deposits along a single stream. In 1837 the US established mints at Dahlonega GA and Charlotte NC, rather than transport the raw gold to the Philadelphia Mint.

Gold Mining flourished in the Appalachian States until the discovery of gold in California in 1848. Miners left and rushed west. Many Appalachian mines closed, never to open again. Mining stopped during the Civil War. Production in later years was sporadic due, in part, to controlled prices. Removal of price controls has encouraged many amateur and experienced prospectors to renew their search for gold.
