about this item

Gold rushes in Cleburne and Tallapoosa Counties attracted thousands of miners years before California’s famous strike. In 1936, production at the Hog Mountain mine caused Alabama to be recognized as the top producer in the Appalachian states. In Hog Mountain’s heyday, a local German settler discovered the precious metal while digging a wine cellar. In Log Pit, unscrupulous speculators “shot” ore into rock crevices and “salted” nuggets on land to enhance its sale value. A Cleburne County miner cleaned over eleven pounds of gold and was killed in a “free fight” all in one day. Join author Peggy Jackson Walls as she traces a century of gold mining in Alabama.
