The Gold Log Mine in Talladega County Alabama

The mine is in Talladega County, Ala., about 7 1/2 miles south of Talladega, on the east side of the valley of Talladega Creek. Free gold occurs locally in irregular masses in the quartz. The ore is usually massive and compact, showing no crustification or drusy cavities. It generally forms bands or lenses parallel with the folia of the schist.
