I just wanted to say hi and thanks to those who provide this site.  I have had an interest in mining for a very long time.  Since I live on the east coast there isn't much in the way of mining around here, but now I travel to NM, AZ, NV and UT quite a bit.  I am trying to learn as much as I can and would like to eventually find someone or some company to take me out and get some hands on experience someday.  But in the mean time I will take as much information and advice I can get..

Thanks again..

Welcome aboard Eddie! Have you ever heard of the GPAA? The Gold Prospectors Association of America? Join them for more information that you could ever need about mining in the west. There are even a few mines on the east coast.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Welcome to the forum.  I have found a wealth of information and experience here and have only just started!  I agree with GD (goldigger1950) that there is more on the East coast that I initially expected.  Uncle Sam located a U.S. mint near a goldmine in GA that I never had heard about until researching a little.  Anyway, welcome.

Welcome Eddie.  You can find old gold mines all over western NC and GA.  In fact Charlotte, NC is built over old gold mine tunnels.  I grew up in Union County, NC and there was a gold mine located about 12 miles away.  There are many tales of old Indian gold mines and Civil War caches there. Larry

Thanks for all the welcomes.

I have read a little about the ones on the east coast.  There were a lot of mines here before the California gold rush from what I've read.  Most of the land here is privately owned but I will be looking into some of the state parks so maybe I can get some panning practice.  But I will keep on reading... as I go I'm sure I'll have lots of questions for ya's.

I will again suggest that you join the GPAA because they own over 600 claims in 48 states that you can use as a member. I gave the URL in my first reply to you. In the grand scheme of life, they are an inexpensive organization compared to the benefits.
