The information given below is based on that which can be found in our new gold/gem folios. If you would like some of these gold/gem maps for your own, CLICK HERE.
New activity is to be found in SC and some experts believe gold has been left behind in AL by early prospectors. The mine at Haile, SC has been producing 700 ounces per month for the past few years. And a new company has been formed to mine gold only 20 miles NE of Columbia, SC. They expect 160,000 ounces per year! We list below some of the more important areas.
