Tennessee Historic Gold Mining Locations

Gold in Tennessee is a byproduct of the copper ores of the Ducktown district in Polk County; small amounts have been mined from placers on Coker Creek in Monroe County. Both areas are in the southeastern part of the State. Total production is over 14,000 ounces.*
