About: Holy **** There IS GOLD in New York!!!
A couple of the local stores have gold panning kids on the shelves here, the tourists laugh and say there is no gold here in NY, I live in the Adirondacks, lots of good, cold water streams here, and yes there is gold, BUT, because of the law, you can't keep it. You're supposed to turn over what you find to the state, so most people get a metal detector and hit the beaches for coins and trinkets, which is fine, done it myself, BUT, there is gold here, if you're willing to look, and willing to not tell the Governor.
My wife and I were panning in a local creek here in Western New York (Close to Buffalo) last weekend, and we found several small pieces of gold in the sand and gravel along this creek, we did not find a large amount, but we did find gold!!
if you look at the laws of nys. a law made in 1776. The day america was founded. NYS passed a law that any gold found in the state belongs to the state. When you sign the deed for your house in fine print. Its says any gold in your yard found belongs to the state. Thats why they dont mine here. good find though.
I live not far from you and there is big gold near that river. but....get hold of a usgs map that shows where the river banks originally were. dig there.
Hi Guy's.... thanks for watching... but I can't reveal anything to protect the innocent .... but I firmly believe we can find Gold anywhere... anywhere... Just don't let NYS know... cause they think ALL minerals belong to them!
