Good Luck and Heavy Pans
Talladega Nat forest has gold bearing streams. Shovel and pan only.

This season we have been to Alabama Gold camp twice and curvins cow pasture once. The first time at AGC we used a mountain goat , which is a reverse helix trommel. We got more gold than the highbankers around us, The reason is that the the pile I was digging in had a pocket of clay , river rocks, degraded quart and it yielded a couple flakes and some flour. Second time there we took our highbanker , ran a bunch of material , moved camp ie different piles and very little gold was the result. Now the campsite is awesome had a fun time riding the big sky atv and campfires etc. The costs is 5 dollars per person to pan, 5 dollars each person to snooze and its 20 dollars per day for highbanker. A person did find a quartz rock with nice gold about 200-300 dollars worth. He said that him and his son been coming there for 5 years and thats the most he found.
