Pin Points where the old gold mines were.  Type of gold that can be expected to be found, load or placer.  Also the type of substrate gold can found in.

The mineral resources of the Charlotte 1×2 degree quadrangle, North Carolina and South Carolina, were assessed between 1978 and 1982 under the Conterminous United States Mineral Assessment Program. The mineral-resource assessments were made on the basis of geologic and geophysical investigations, the presence of existing or abandoned mines, mapped mineral occurrences, and where appropriate, on heavy-mineral occurrences seen in pan concentrates or detected by geochemical analysis of pan concentrates. Map size approximately 42″x28″.

Reed Gold Mine is the site of the first documented gold find in the United States. From this discovery, gold mining spread gradually to nearby counties and eventually into other southern states. During its peak years gold mining was second only to farming in the number of North Carolinians it employed. The estimated value of gold recovered reached over one million dollars a year. North Carolina led the nation in gold production until 1848, when it was eclipsed by the great rush to California.

The largest lump of gold, found in the United States, was dis-
covered on the Reed plantation in Cabarrus county, N. C.
It was about 8 inches long, 5 inches broad and an inch thick,
and weighed 28 pounds avoirdupois.
