This report deals chiefly with the gold mines in the Southern Appalachian gold belt whose workings were accessible at the time of examination, but it also · summarizes available information concerning many mines that were not accessible. Most of the mines lie within a belt, 10 to 100 miles wide, that extends
along the southeast front of the .:Appalachian Mountains from the Great Falls of the Potomac River to east-central Alabama, in the gently sloping region known as the Piedmont. The field work was done during parts of 1934 and 1935, on funds allotted by the Public Works Administration.
