The Reynolds (Star) Gold Mine
September 2003 by Sam E. Phifer, P.G.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.
For approximately 30 years, the mines produced good ore, some so rich it was simply sent straight to bagging, bypassing milling and loaded directly on the rail cars.
