GOLD LOCATIONS IN VERMONT






Vermont has some really nice gold. Several years ago I had the opportunity to dredge on Broad Brook near Bridgewater. We found some really nice gold and some nice almandine garnets in abundance. We dredge on State land and had a run in with one of the communist government officials in this democrate controlled state. The guy worked for the Department of Environmental Quality and he said my little 3" dredge was destroying the world. What a bunch of idiots in the government in this state. Oh well, glad I don't live there.

Windsor County Vermont

Me and my friend Jim Labuz and his brother Bob of Utica, New York used to go over to Broad Brook in Windsor County and prospect for gold. Jim and I have some great stories about this place. I found a little nugget using a Gold Spear that weighed in at 1.2 dwt. Jimmy and Bob have found some real nice nuggets here.
