Jared - just put up an article in the Gazette about Vermont gold. Not detailed but it will give you some ideas.
Not sure how far you are from the White Mt's - NH? Check some USGS maps on that area, too.
As far as gold - you aren't sitting too bad. Not like out West, but you're in a state that has actual gold and not only glacial droppings. Once you get South - NC, you get more and Georgia is a Mecca. Their capitol dome is all from Georgia gold.
Now - as far as Silver, all I can tell you about Vermont is don't bother.
Awesome Sal, reading the article in the Gazzette now... just read this part and got more excited, since I'm in Orleans county!
"All in all, ten counties are in Vermont are known to produce gold. These counties are: Addison, Bennington, Chittenden, Lamoille, Orange, Orleans, Rutland, Washington, Windham, Windsor."
I'm only about 90 miles from the White Mountains, will be exploring there also... once I figure out what the heck I'm doing! lol
So no silver here in VT eh?
Thanks again for the great info!
