    It's out there, Gold/Silver Mining WV.

    Found this while looking for something else. I'm not sure but in the 1880's silver was 90 cents an ounce??

    There has been no native gold or native silver recognized to date in West Virginia."

    So I'm going along, all of a sudden I get this SWEET hit! It's like my head is going to explode! I get down. I start diggin', I'm lookin'. And there it is, roundness in the hole! Woo hoo!! I start runnin' around, breaking tree limbs, doin' cart wheels and somersaults. I holler at Ringy! It's the greatest find ever! Sweet nectar in the hole! I know what this is! It's the handle of a sword. We've NEVER found ANYTHING this good! Sweet juice in the poc
