Gold Pennsylvania Prospecting

    There are occasions in which gold is found when people are not even looking for it such as what happened in Pennsylvania. The gold found in Pennsylvania from prospecting yielded forty thousand ounces of gold while mining for iron. It is amazing when you think about it though because gold is something that has been discovered and mined in all the phases of our history. It was also found in Alaska in the 1790’s and opportunely for the United States, this did not cause a big scene until after the Russians decided to sell the land. Georgia is another place that had its own gold rush too in the 1820’s and as a matter a fact, so much gold was found that state was able to have its own mint at Dahlonga. Gold was also discovered in Ohio and Indiana due to the glacial deposits, which had left a good amount of gold in them. Gold like in Pennsylvania when prospecting, can often times be found in places where other metals are being mined. In the past Utah reported their discovery of gold mainly from the copper mining they had done in Bingham City. Another interesting thing to know is that in certain places of Indiana or West Virginia diamonds have been occasionally found. During the gold hunting that began in the 1900’s around twenty of these precious gems were found. While it is true that gold has been seen in many states in the United States, there are some places that have it more abundantly then others. In the past the western states, such as the Black Hills of South Dakota and Alaska were the principal producers. However it is difficult to pin point the exact area where to look for it. There is probably not any site or book or magazine that will be able to tell a person exactly where to go to look in order to strike the big one and besides that it would not be convenient either because the result would just end up in a mass of people going to the place and cleaning it up. The only thing that can be indicated is where gold has been located in the past. And from that point on it would just be a matter of looking for any clues that could indicate the possibility of gold and following the signs, and obviously having a good amount of luck. If you are looking for gold in Pennsylvania through prospecting mind you that a fortune will not be found but there are good possibilities of finding at least a little bit of gold.
