Haven't been on the site here in a while so sorry for the delay in replying business and deer hunting was calling. The gold belt swings down through north central GA (Dahlonaga area) and over into east central AL. IF you don't know there is the Alabama Gold Camp in Lineville (they have a group on Yahoo), also there is the North Alabama Chapter of the GPAA that seems to be pretty active they also have a Yahoo Group. Alabama gold camp is on a small river and is good for dredging, sluicing, highbanking. They cha
