Georgia My Little Miners


Georgia Rocks and GOLD

Georgia seems to be the place for Gold. I have to admit, I have found more gold in Georgia than in Alabama and not for a lack of trying. Near Cleveland there are many old placer mines. I visited "Gold and Gem Grubbing".

It was salted like most of the mines in this area. However, there was a really nice looking mine building that I used as a backdrop for the picture above. Excellent time for the family.

I recommend early summer, because they have black berries that are ripe then and the kids can pick black berries while you pan for gold along the stream. It is more expensive to pan along the stream and can be back breaking, but I found over 3 grams in one afternoon.
