If anyone has a scanned image of the Dahlonega Gold Belt Map produced by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources in the 1980's, this thread would be a great place to post it.  It shows the extents of the belt along with locations of mines.

Below is a snap of the gold mines in GA.  I can get a list with lat/long coordinates in either google earth format or html.  With the google earth file you can zoom in and get other detailed info. Doesn't look it but there are five hundred and some gold mines.  

Don't know if i can post html or google earth files here?  Does anyone know?

That is an awesome map!  How can we see the data to zoom in?

iseek,

 I attached a google earth file that shows the gold mines in GA.  

If you click any X you can get info on the mine.  In google earth make sure to select waterways and water bodies.  It makes it very easy to spot where numerous mines are close to water.  Take a look at the attached pic.  Look at the number of mines close to the two waterbodies.

I found that Google Earth can be up to a quarter mile off to the NNE.  Kinda annoying when you get into the tax office and the court houses of the various counties to look up deeds and plats only to discover that's not the property in question.  Several sites I have been researching on the east side of the belt are not where they have been indicated on the map and it's had me going to Georgia Western in Carrollton to go through their archives to get the straight dope on what's where.

600+ mines in Georgia alone... It's enough to make anyone a little stir crazy.
