Gold in Chilton County Alabama

Gold was originally found in Alabama in the 1830’s around Chilton County, west of the Coosa River along Chestnut Creek and Blue Creek. Until WWII, the total recorded gold production reached around 50,000 troy ounces. Most of Alabama’s gold can be found in and around an area called the “Piedmont Upland” which includes the counties of Chilton, Clay, Cleburn, Coosa, Randolph, Talladega, and Tallapoosa.
