North Carolina Gold Prospecting, Gold Panning, Treasure Hunting and Rockhounding
Three hundred North Carolina gold mines and gold prospecting locations are shown in 34 counties on the North Carolina gold map. A 17 pound gold nugget was found in 1799 by a 12 year old boy, Conrad Reed, in a creek on the Reed farm in North Carolina. The nugget was used as a doorstop for three years. You will enjoy visiting the Reed Gold Mine, the nation’s first, at Stanfield. It has gold displays, gold mining equipment, a film, gold panning facilities and tours of the gold mine (704-721-4653). Also, see the North Carolina Minerals Museum at Spruce Pine and the Colburn Gem and Mineral Museum at Asheville. There are extensive national forests in North Carolina with beautiful streams where you may prospect and pan for gold. The national forests are shown on your gold prospecting and panning map. Some other gold nuggets found in North Carolina were: 28 pounds, 25 pounds and 15 pounds.
