    Spent 2 1/2 weeks in Georgia.  Was not impressed with Loud Mine. We dredged for 3 days and then ran 75 buckets of material hauled from across the creek and combined only got about 30 colors. Trying to get any info from caretaker was like pulling teeth. Was told we could set up the hi-banker anywhere, only to be told after an hour running could not be set up where we were, but could set up 15 feet from there. The material from the pile was a joke, all topsoil. 
    We spent the next week and half at the Gold and Gems property and managed 9.86 grams and a 5 gal bucket of gems.

    Reach out to your Senators and Representatives and let them know you are in support of mining rights and opening up areas to small scale mining! ~Augusta, GA GPAA~ ~LDMA~

    Nice Gold Mike, I'm curious, do you get any Gold from the lower tray on your Gold Hog?

    The history I've been told about the Loud mine is that there is a mine tunnel that runs parallel to the
    ridge on the East side of the property. The Eastern property line runs along that ridge.
    There is a subdivision on top of that ridge and around the other side is the Gold N Gem property.
    The Gold N Gem was running a huge trommel up until 2010-2011, I believe.
    The Gold Hog web site has some pictures of that unit laid up against a hill.
    There are some earlier videos that show Doc inspecting the Gold Hog mats that were used in the trommel.

    Anyway, it seems that the Gold bearing ore is still being washed out from the old Loud Mine seams
    and pushed out to the Gold N Gem property. Or the Gold N Gem property still has some
    "bench" areas that were part of the old Town Creek river bed from way long ago and those areas
    have gold.
    Where the Loud Mine was used as a county gravel pit that provided gravel for the roads in the area.
    Then it was used as a commercial land fill for a while.
    I've heard mention that in the early days of the LDMA Loud Mine existence, the current ponds were
    dry and they were used as parking areas.
    Now they are used as settling ponds for our high bankers.
    Also I've been told. that where the picnic pavilion is located, there is a grandstand near the pond and that grandstand
    is a cover to a mine shaft.

    Does anyone else have any tales about the Loud Mine past use or history of it's gold production?
