Wrong geology bud. Plenty of quartz and garnet around, but no gold. Go to Alaska and destroy their environment.

Actually there are remnants of Gold mines and mining operations. But they were never viable as the quality of the ore was poor. Some spots in Hamilton County and in the southern Adirondacks had gold deposits.

old legend

As said the geology doesn't match up for gold around here, but there is an old legend that there was a massive mine found in the Adirondacks, and strangely the men who embarked on the endeavour of finding it all ended up dead or insane.. Something about it being in a high magnetic field area which in other similar areas with magnetic feilds gold has been found... The legend I believe also said that the one man who had made it out with a peice of the gold, when that piece was tested was some of the pureist gold ever found... If you Google it the story should come up..

And just an FYI and gold found in the ground anywhere in NY is property of the state and can be confiscated by them..

no one talks about the Utica Gold Rush of 1850 , everyone was still focused on the 49er rush in California

Yes, they are called CASINOS and it's the management not the patrons who are getting rich.
