I am an old caver. Been searching online and in the woods for caves and old mine shafts. Anyone know of any in this area?

Most caves form through the dissolution of limestone by acidic groundwater. Limestones of the Paleozoic age are a common bedrock in the Appalachian Plateau and Valley and Ridge provinces of northwest Georgia, and those limestones are riddled with caves and other features formed by solution processes. Georgia's two northwesternmost counties, Dade and Walker, host 164 and 149 caves respectively. Bartow County and the eight counties to the north and west (Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Murray, Walker, and Whitfield) combine to host 448 of Georgia's 513 known caves.

at the Highland Falls gated subdivision off Owl Town Road, is an old, abandoned gold mine. Unless you live there or know someone that does, it'll be hard to access. Last time I was in it, 25 years ago, it had about a foot of water in it.

Hunters and hikers have told me about caves around Blood Mountain. Check with the folks with the national park service office here in Blairsville.

I'll find a way to get to that mine. Oh, and ask the USFS folks about Blood Mtn. Thanks.
