    There are many creeks in the area that will contain gold, becareful where you use a sluice as there are places where they are illegal,,,just be sure to study up on where and how and you'll have a good time..

    nuggethunter,

    If you go east on I-40 to exit #85 and take st rt 221 south, there are several mining areas...Lucky Strike and Thermal City to name a few. You can pan for $5 a day at Lucky Strike and keep all you find. These are in McDowell County
    Gold Prospecting and Mining at The Lucky Strike Mine, North Carolina .

    The Second Broad River and Muddy Creek contain gold in this area.

    If you are a member of the LDMA, they have a site in the area as well off Vein Mountain Road Vein Mountain


    I have a log home just 3 miles from these sights. If you want some company if you decide to try these areas, give me a call.

    Just a fyi Thermal City is closed till March 15. Lucky Strike and Vein Mtn Gold Camp are both still open though.
    Sample till you find the hot spot, then mine it till its gone! Then start over...

    Now that is what it's all about! Bill, you are not only a great American, you are good people! Prospectors helping others! That is one of the greatest benefits of this hobby, all the helpful, friendly people you meet! I get thru that area occasionally too, but piggybacking new semi trucks prevents me from getting off I-40. I do carry a pan and a backpacker MacKirk sluice in my carry-on bag and once found a microscopic flake sitting around in our dispatch yard in Mt Holly! Props to you Bill for your generosity and southern hospitality!

    Speaking of thermal city or lucky strike mines, I have the same question, which is better for me to high bank and my wife to sit by a stream and read a book? Also I live in lumberton, NJ, near Mt Holly, and we are coming down to a house we have in Sevierville, Tn at the end of march. I really would like to prospect in a private area but know no one with such land in the NC, TN area so thought one of the two mentioned mines would work for me as the only choice I know of. Ideas?
