This report deals chiefly with the history, character, and occurrence of the gold deposits in the Southern Piedmont. It describes the geology of the region only in so far as the geology seems likely to shed light on the extent of the gold deposits and their possibilities for future production. In the geological descriptions the authors have drawn from the reports of men who have investigated special areas, and have accepted the views of the geologists of the State Geological Surveys regarding the names of formations and the extent of these formations in their respective states.

Following a 2-year effort, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has released Open-File Report 96-96, Data Base for a National Mineral-Resource Assessment of Undiscovered Deposits of Gold, Silver, Copper, Lead, and Zinc in the Conterminous United States. This is the first time that probabilistic estimates of the amounts of undiscovered gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc in conventional types of mineral deposits have been provided in a single report. The results of the assessment are presented in an interactive Compact Disc Read Only Memory (CD ROM).
