North Carolina Map of Gold, Silver & Lost Treasure Sites

The first gold nugget discovered in North Carolina was more than a picker. The glimmering chunk weighed in at a whopping 17 pounds. The discovery in Cabarrus County led to the first gold rush in America. Since that time, North Carolina has produced well in excess of 1,000,000 ounces. Note: Some sites listed below may have prohibitions against prospecting. Always seek permission from property owners and obtain any necessary permits prior to panning, dredging, or metal detecting.
