The Carolina Gold Rush, the first gold rush in the United States, followed the discovery of a large gold nugget in North Carolina in 1799, by a 12-year-old boy named Conrad Reed. He spotted the nugget while playing in Meadow Creek on his family's farm in Cabarrus County, North Carolina.Conrad took the 17 lb gold nugget home to show his father. However, gold was not commonly seen in their community and the value of the nugget was not understood. The nugget was used as a door stop in the family's home for several years. In 1802, Conrad's father, John Reed, showed the rock to a jeweler, who recognized it as gold and offered to buy it. Reed, still unaware of the real value of his "doorstop," sold it to the jeweler for $3.50 (approximately one week's pay for a farm laborer at that time).

Reed Gold Mine is the site of the first documented gold find in the United States and that was right here in Cabarrus County. Clarence Horton talks about this discovery, gold mining and the Hessian Soldiers that journeyed from Germany to spread gradually to nearby counties and eventually into other southern states.

Starriders 124 took a ride from Columbia, SC to Reed Gold Mine in Locust, NC. The roads were great and the day was beautiful. The mine is a great destination, showing the history of gold discovery in North Carolina. It got pretty warm that day so the cool air inside the mine felt really good. Potato-sized gold nuggets used to lay about like some extravagant Easter egg hunt but, no more. We proved this by trying our hand at panning. Its 2 dollars well spent; it supports the operation and it was fun thinking a nugget could appear in our pan!

http://www.undergroundworldnews.com RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in eastern North Carolina say armed robbers stole $4 million in gold from a truck traveling on Interstate 95 from Florida to Massachusetts. The Wilson County Sheriff's Office said Monday the two security guards working for Transvalue Inc. of Miami reported pulling to the side of the interstate on Sunday evening after their vehicle began having mechanical problems. They were then approached by three armed men driving a white van who ordered the guards to lie on the ground, tied their hands behind their backs and then marched them into nearby woods. Authorities say the male suspects then unloaded barrels filled with gold and made their getaway.

On this trip my wife and I travel to North Carolina to check out the landscape and do a little prospecting. We visited the Emerald Village Gem Mine, Lucky Strike Gold Mine, and Thermal City Gold Mine. Visit our website at www.HighPlainsProspectors.com for some great prospecting, valuable information, and metal detecting gear, monthly contests and give aways. She prospected for gems and found quite a few nice specimens. I panned for gold and together we found a fair amount of North Carolina Gold.

A video of our trip today (09-23-2017) to visit the Reed Gold Mine Historical Park. This was the site of North America's first gold rush. Before our trip today, I had no idea of the extent of this park and the wealth of history it contains. What amazes me most about it is that there is no admission fee and that all of the displays, trails, and museum are free of charge. If you want to pan for gold there is a three dollar per pan charge. Several people panning while I was there had found small gold nuggets. The park provides the visitors with small glass vials to store their gold. I had no idea of the extent of the mine shafts there and it was a revelation to see them, to examine the equipment left over from the gold run days, and to learn about the history of this part of North Carolina. And to think I've been living only 25 miles from this park since I moved here in the 1980s!

There's still gold in these hills The gold rushes of the 19th century have long since ended, but there are still plenty of places you can hunt for the precious metal using a shovel, pan, metal detector and more. In fact, recreational gold mining is a pastime these days for many people, and for good reason: the largest nugget ever found in California was discovered by an amateur. Here are some key locations worldwide that you can still prospect for the yellow metal – you never know, you may get lucky and strike it rich.
