    I am from West Virginia and I firmly support the Recreational Gold Prospecting bill but it is my understanding that West Virginia is not known for Gold deposits in any form. Black Gold in the form of oil and coal is more readily available. Where do you prospect for Gold? Have you found any Gold?
