I came across this old magazine article describing a visit to a North Carolina gold mine in 1857. Things were different back then..

Did you catch all the finer points such as copper sulphides were the visible ore and the pumps for de-watering the mine? The copper sulphides were probably covellite or chalcosite which are secondary enrichments below the water table. Then there was that bit about the quartz veins hosting the gold being in black hard slate; perhaps black from carbon content.

Thanks for posting the link.
