    Re: Lost gold locations in Ga

    I live in Whitfield County, at the Catoosa County line. All my life I have heard about a lost silver mine. Supposedly a man by the name of Thompson was friends with the local indians and they showed him the entrance to a cave or mine that contained silver. I don't know if the silver had been poured into bars or if it was ore. But the story goes that he marked the spot by putting a hatchet into a tree, and that he never could find the location of the mine after that. This man was either Warren Thompson father or grandfather and if Mr. Thompson was still living he would be at least a 100 years old or better. I wonder if his Cherokee friends showed him when they were being forced out of the area (trail of tears) The mine is suppose to be located in the Houston Valley area.

    I have been told of several caves in the area. One family named Wright had one in the back of their property that is suppose to have indian drawings in it.

    And of course there is the infamous Waterhouse treasure.

    Somewhere in the area of Hwy 201 crosses Cahulla creek there are stories of a large stash of gold bullion near an old stage station and it comes up in reference to the missing bullion also in Whitfield county. And near the town of Varnell and near Face mtn a well worked gold mine existed before the white settlers arrived. I hope this helps you.

    Lost Gold mine in Gwinnett

    I wouldn't put much faith in this one. Gwinnett county is pretty much out of the gold belt that lies between two geological faults. It does pinch and extends down to villa rica and I have found some gold there. But now I guess that is all wall to wall neighborhoods, I panned there 18 years ago.

    I definitely think that the Gwinnett county story is questionable. Most of gwinnett is filled up with concrete now. I went to school at North Georgia college back in the day and camped near a couple of old mines near Dawsonville so I know that there are old mining holes everywhere. I am very interested in the Cherokee County stories. If anyone has indian markings on their property please pm. I have been researching this particular area and story for several months now and believe that there is credible info.

    Re: Lost gold locations in Ga

    GOLD DEPOSITS OF GEORGIA by S. Percy Jones, Georgia geological survey #19, 1909, 283 pages.
    Alot of the so called missing gold mines are listed in this book. There were alot of gold mines in Gwinnett County, and they are listed here by land lot location. I have visited several of them and they lay right next to busy neighborhoods these days and the people who live there haven't a clue what is in the creek in back of the house.
    Every known gold deposit in the state was visited by Percy who did a test panning at the site to determine the approximate value of the remaining gold, and many of these mines were hard to relocate in the early 1900's, but he did it, and recorded the site by land lot maps so you can relocate just about any gold mine in the state, stretching back to the 1830's.
    Reprints of this book used to be sold by the Georgia Mineral Society, so you might want to contact them if your library doesn't have a copy. I have used the information in it to locate gold in places you would never dream there was any.
    Good luck, and be safe!

    gwinnett

    How deep do yu have to dig? I believe my moms neighborhood to be built on land with indian burial grounds. When I was younger I would go scouting in the woods and found hundreds of 3-5 foot high rock piles. My mom contacted some indian she knew and the cheif showed up to protest the disturbance of any more soil. They excavated 2 of the stone piles and found no bones so the buldozed them and built houses.
    I wonder if these indians were mining it.
