    Gold In Ohio

    A few days ago at work (I work in a coin and jewelry store), a guy came in to sell some gold flakes and a few small nuggets. Nothing too exceptional, mostly placer-like, but he did leave with a $800 check. He was in a hurry, so I didn't get a chance to talk to him much, but he said he regularly finds gold in Delaware and Knox counties. Sounded like Knox county has more. He said that there's gold to be had, but not many people know about it or where to look, and they who do know, keep it a secret.

    soooo.......Anyone know where this is? Where one could go panning for gold around these parts?

    Thanks for the reply. It may sound inconsequential, but your info may help someday when I get around to trying to find some gold. It's the hunt that I find most thrilling, and little clues like yours add up!

    Are you a member of GPAA? If not join, GPAA has 3 claims in Ohio that produces gold. Once a member you can go there for free.

    just an fyi...

    I have been working on 161 around New Albany/Newark and a fellow that works there has been doing a little panning on his lunch break and has found a nice little vial.

    Keep in mind some areas are under construction, please do not enter the areas or you can be fined for trespassing'.

    Re: Gold In Ohio

    I just finished watching a segment of "Gold Fever" on the Outdoor Channel, and they were in Ohio. they mentioned alot of Counties, almost all the Counties in the Southern part of the state. This has something to do with the Glacial Drifts 14,000 years ago that pushed gold down from Canada. Do some research on Glacial Drifts for the state of Ohio and this shall help you. I am dying to go panning in the near future. We can hook up, but beware that I am a Pittsburghian.......

    According to what I saw on Ohio Glacial Drift Gold,

    You don't Dig in the Creeks, unless you have a Dredge
    because the Clay Bottom could be Several feet down.

    You find a Gravel Layer on the Sides sort of Sandwiched between the Clay
    and Dig the Bottom of the Gravel where it lays on the Clay.

    I'm glad I saw that show. I would have tried Panning the Creek Gravel :P

    Good pictures of where the gold layer may be. These type images really help when you have "the" fever. Did you ever try using a metal detector along the rock-clay layer shown in the picture.

    I joined GPAA last year and found the people very friendly. I have mined the claim just south of Mansfield. Some found a few flakes, then winter set in before I had a chance to mine the sites closer to me in Dayton.
