Many miners who have hoarded their gold for years are now tempted by higher prices. Several friends with multiple pound nugget collections have sold them recently for cash.
Lots of prospectors are trying out nugget detecting for the first time and finding out that it isn’t all that easy. In fact, in my opinion, metal detecting for nuggets is perhaps the most difficult form of prospecting that one can take on.
The Reynolds gold mine is located approximately 6 miles northeast of the town of Troy, North Carolina, the county seat of Montgomery County. According to old reports, the mine was discovered around 1800. Production reports from the mine are sketchy, but mention the occurrence of telluride minerals associated with the gold. Early work was apparently confined to a number of quartz veins that traverse the property in a northeasterly direction.
Canyon Resources Corporation recently offered to let environmental groups buy the mineral rights under nearly a million acres of land in western Montana.
