Gold Deposits of the Southern Piedmont

This report deals chiefly with the gold mines in the Southern Appalachian gold belt whose workings were accessible at the time of examination, but it also · summarizes available information concerning many mines that were not accessible. Most of the mines lie within a belt, 10 to 100 miles wide, that extends along the southeast front of the Appalachian Mountains from the Great Falls of the Potomac River to east-central Alabama, in the gently sloping region known as the Piedmont. The field work was done during parts of 1934 and 1935, on funds allotted by the Public Works Administration.
