“search for treasure at the site of the first major discovery of gold in the USA”
Come pan for gold and screen for gems at North Georgia's best pay dirt mine, but don't take our word for it. Come on out and check us out for yourself. This is the site of the first major discovery of gold in America! Dukes Creek Gold and Ruby Mines, North Georgia's best operating Gold & Gem mine, was formerly a productive part of Americaís first Gold Rush. In George White's 1849 book Statistics of the State of Georgia, he states "The first discovery of gold in this state was made at Duke's Creek, Habersham (now White) County." We have been in the mining business for over forty years. Shop owner, Del Jackson, has mined everywhere from here in the United States and Alaska to Central and South America. In the late 70s, we opened a small sand and gravel mine right outside Helen, Georgia, named Noochee Sand and Gravel. This is where we are still located today.
