    Gold panning streams in north georgia?

    I am looking to try out gold panning I live in Murray Co. GA. And was curious if anyone on here knew a place that I could give a try that is close to where I live. Thanks

    Almost all the creeks in north georgia have gold in them. Especially around the dalonega and cleveland areas. The gold belt runs from alabama thru northwest and north central georgia into north carolina and virginia. gpaa (gold prospectors association ) has a gold camp just outside of cleveland, ga.

    I am going to try Chattahoochee National forest on sunday. I can both metal detect and pan. At least I am positive it is legal there. I have been up to Cleveland and Dahlonega and will go again but so far only a few flakes

    Be aware, all the national forrest and tva properties require permits to metal detect or gold pan. I know for sure the tva properties do. They can take your equipment , your money, your freedom and the car you came in, so be careful. You can go the tva (tennessee valley association) website and download a free application for a metal detecting permit from them. But it is only good for camping areas, beach areas, and public access areas near boat ramps and such. Still there is some good hunting in some of these areas. As for the gold panning. LDMA (lost dutchmans mining association) and GPAA (gold prospecting association of america) have a gold camp in cleveland, ga. and in both south and north carolina. To use the camp you must be a LDMA member or a guest of one. You will find flake gold and a picker every now and then, but it fun. There is a pay for use gold camp next door to the one in georgia. Several more are scattered around north georgia. You also have tammys consolidated mine in delonaga, ga. pay for use.

    Be warned. Parts of the Chatahoochee National Forest are no place to "cut your teeth" bushwhacking. The going can get very rough very quickly once you stray off the blacktop and park trails. Straight up and down climbing through brush so thick you need a machette. I wouldn't be surprised to hear alot of people have been found dead within two or three miles of rescue. Good Luck. Do your homework. Talk to the locals before you go in too deep. I spent three weeks there and didn't find any gold. Just alot of darn difficult terrain.

    This is my neck of the woods. I thought it was illegal to metal detect in GA state parks?

    The moniker translates to "Skinny Silver Man". You should learn to speak Mexican instead of Spanish - it's much more practical.

    Sorry you didn't find more gold. I agree with your assessment of the terrain in these parts, but it's not so bad if you have been raised here and grown accustomed to spending time in the woods. I heard or read something once many years ago that the NE GA mountains are about as close to a tropical rainforest that you will find in America in terms of elevation, rainfall, heat, and humidity.

    The area does have a lot of gold, it's like beauty... you got'a known where to look!



    The Chattooga begins in southern Jackson County, North Carolina, then flows southwestward between northwestern Oconee County, South Carolina, and eastern Rabun County, Georgia. The river was used as a setting for the fictional Cahulawassee River in the book and film Deliverance.

    Wouldn't trade living here for anywhere else, but it's more of a place to raise kids or retire. Not so great if you are a "Captain of Industry" type. lol

    And I think Deliverance is one of the best movies ever. The "squeal like a pig" part overshadows the rest of the gripping and tense film. The banjo boy also works in a restaurant here. He's pretty cool and not as ******ed as his character in the film.
