    anyone around Greenville, NC?

    im new to Metal Detecting and Gold Mining but im looking to see if anyone around Greenville is doing either and what kinda stuff have they been finding and maybe meet up one weekend. Im just getting started in metal detecting so I have a starter MD but you gotta start somewhere. Im also looking to hit up a few places outside of Rocky Mount for some gold panning/dredging. Thanks.

    Gold can be found in most of the Piedmont, which is the area northwest of the Fall Line. The Fall Line is the division between the younger sedimentary rocks of the Coastal Plain and the older crystalline metamorphic and igneous rocks of the Piedmont. Major gold mining operations have been located in Lancaster, Fairfield, McCormick, Chesterfield and Cherokee Counties. Briefly, gold deposits were formed within volcanic rocks during the early history of the Piedmont. Deposits are now found by core drilling or visual and chemical observations of rock outcrops at the surface. Gold and other minerals accumulate in stream sediments because of the actions of erosion on the crystalline rock. Panning and sluicing for gold in streams, creeks, and shallow rivers has yielded minor finds.

    Campers at Paris Mountain State Park, near Greenville, can enjoy panning for gold in an organized program on the fourth Saturday of each month. Campers must book in advance and stay a minimum of two nights. Facilities include rest rooms and hot showers.

    There's a map of know gold locations around Greenville, SC. It runs around $10.00. I'll see if I can find the link to order it.
