    Greenville NC

    I am new to Greenville NC and I am looking for people to go metal detecting with. I have found old coins, rings, and civil war artifacts and have good luck finding old bottles and overlooked items at historical sites. If you are in the area and would like to go metal detecting, search for Indian artifacts, or dig fossils then send me a message. I use a water proof whites beach hunter so I have no problem metal detecting in the river or streams as well.

    Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and More!

    Most people are surprised to hear that rubies, sapphires, and emeralds have been found in North Carolina. They are even more surprised when they learn that there are about a dozen locations in North Carolina where anyone can look for gemstones and keep anything that they find.


    Gold Too!

    The first gold discovery in the United States was made in North Carolina in 1799 by Conrad Reed. He found an interesting - and very heavy - yellow rock in Little Meadow Creek, which flowed across the farm owned by his parents in Cabarrus County. The rock weighed seventeen pounds, but young Reed didn't know that its extreme weight was caused by its gold content. He took the rock home, where his family thought that it was an interesting rock and used it as a door stop for the next few years.
    They speculated that the rock might contain gold but did not know how to confirm that. In 1802 John Reed, who was the property owner and Conrad's father, showed it to a Fayetteville jeweler who purchased it from him for $3.50 - a very tiny fraction of what the rock was worth at that time!
    The following year John Reed determined that Meadow Creek on his property contained an abundance of gold nuggets. They could be produced by digging the creek's sediments, washing them, and separating the nuggets out by hand. He formed a partnership with a few of his neighbors, who agreed to provide slave labor to mine the gold during times of the year when the slaves were not needed to tend crops. Thus the first gold mine in the United States opened with slave labor in 1803. By 1924 they had recovered over $100,000 worth of gold.
    Word spread that Reed's Gold Mine was producing a lot of gold, and people all over the state began searching their streams for gold. Many of them bought gold pans, and went to work in the streams to find gold. A few of them found gold veins along the streams, and underground mining began on several properties. Gold-bearing quartz veins were found on Reed's property, and underground mining began in 1831.
    North Carolina was the leading gold-producing state until 1848 when the California Gold Rush began. Production in North Carolina gradually decreased until the early 1900s, when almost all of the mines had closed. Today lots of people still look for gold in North Carolina - and find some of them find it. They mostly work with metal detectors and gold pans


    There are no ancient secrets to decoding the past, there is only great research and applied logic.
