This Month's Presentation
The Georgia Gold Rush
Wild Miners, ‘29ers, and Gold Fever in Them Thar Hills
Jose Santamaria, Executive Director
Tellus Science Museum
Nearly two hundred years ago, Georgia witnessed the first major gold rush in this country. Tellus director Jose Santamaria will cover the geology of Georgia’s gold deposits, the series of events that created chaos in the hills of north Georgia, and the ensuing aftermath. Is there still gold in them thar hills? The program includes stunning photographs of Georgia gold specimens from the museum’s collection, some of which were collected in the 1800s by our first state geologists, and some which were found just a few years ago.
