We ventured into an old gold mine it was actually pretty exciting. It looked like it went deep into the mountain, but without the right equipment we turn back out. Pretty Cool…..Creepy Brown Spider! Video Rating: / 5
The first significant gold rush in the United States was in Cabarrus County, North Carolina (east of Charlotte), in 1799 at today’s Reed’s Gold Mine. Thirty years later, in 1829, the Georgia Gold Rush in the southern Appalachians occurred. It was followed by the California Gold Rush of 1848–55 in the Sierra Nevada, which captured the popular imagination.
