Prospecting in Tennessee
February 2009 by Tim LeGrandAs soon as I learned that there was gold in Tennessee I just had to go find some.
Unquestionably, the first impression received from touring the exhibition areas at “MINExpo International 2004,” sponsored by the National Mining Association and held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from September 27-30, is one of sheer size.

One of Arizona’s richest silver producers was the fabulously rich Silver King Mine of Pinal County. This incredible deposit was first discovered in 1875 during the construction of the famous Stoneman Grade, which connects present day Superior to Globe, Arizona. From 1877 to 1888 the famous Silver King Mine was in operation and during that brief span of time it produced an astounding $16,000,000 in silver.
In retrospect, I can now see that the thoughtless breaking of one of my safety rules regarding not dredging alone was to be a lesson I won’t soon forget.
