Hello All.... As this is new to me (sparked by a few TV programs) I decided to check-out things out. I live in Central PA (close to State Collage) thats loaded with very old coal mines - so I have plenty of black dirt. More than 1 "old" miner has spoken of gold veins they have seen while in mines. Many of these mines were flooded after they stopped producing some 40 to 60 years ago - some still have water flowing out and have formed small rivers and streams. We have a very high mineral content (a lot of iron & lead also) - is my area worth the trouble?
Thanks in advance for any help
