Mining in North Carolina

Amazingly, North Carolina was the site of the FIRST GOLD and FIRST SILVER discoveries in the United States. Early prospectors who plied this region discovered hundreds of profitable mines in the Piedmont beginning in 1803 using European techniques to mine high grade ores underground. Even Charlotte started out as a gold mining town and center for trading gold dust and minting gold coins. Today, modern methods including satellite imagery and deep-reaching geophysics are used to search the ancient volcanic terrains of the Carolina Piedmont that have been so lucrative in the past at producing gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc. Both historic mines as well as new areas are searched for valuable mineral deposits which, when developed, help reduce our dependence on foreign imports of these metals and other valuable minerals. North Carolina has led the way for almost two centuries at producing more diversified mineral products than almost any other State.
