Trout Thriving In Treated Mine Water
March 2006 by Associated PressWest Virginia University water scientists have found that rainbow trout can survive in previously polluted waters.
At an altitude of over 4,000 feet, in the mountainous terrain of eastern San Diego County, lies the once productive Julian Mining District. Beginning with placer prospecting in 1869, this area moved rapidly into underground quartz or vein mining for gold.
Although there are many mining ghost towns in California, it is rare to find the ruins of one that was abandoned 140 years ago and then subsequently buried by hydraulic mining debris.
Republican vice presidential contender Dick Cheney, continuing a campaign swing through the West, said the Clinton administration has failed to step up and toe the mark for the mining and energy industry.

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.
Not all of these slides and debris flows will produce results, but if you search for these while prospecting in your gold producing areas, then you can increase your odds of finding new gold.
