    I have never heard of any, but with the whole area covered with glaciers in the not too distant past never say never. I have heard of some in Eastern CT, and just over the boarder in Wrentham MA there was a gold mine in the 1890's.

    Here is an article on the Internet that should be of interest to you
    State Treasures - Rhode Island | Lost Treasure Online - Official Website of Lost Treasure Magazine

    Follow some of the links and there is more information

    So I guess the answer is Yes, but accessibility is always something you have to take into account. The Durfee Mine appears to be in a Neighborhood now, if you
    check on Google Earth

    Diamond Hill is a State Park across the border from the Sheldonville section of Wrentham that another respondent pointed out.

    Good Luck

    The Sheldonville gold mine actually found and mined gold in the 1890's until the owner went bankrupt due to back taxes. It is now on a farm.

    So the old gold mines are out of the equation, I'm trying to find out if the blackstone river has any gold in it

    I would not think that the Blackstone River would have much if any gold in RI. There are far too many dams and man made waterfalls for me to think it would be there. If my understanding of how gold flows downstream is correct that is. Maybe further upstream in the Uxbridge MA area might be a little better
