Statehood Date:

New Hampshire


Gold occurrences in New Hampshire have been reported on and off for the last two hundred years, but never in commercially valuable deposits. The source of the gold is not known, but it probably reflects similar occurrences in the Chaudière River watershed in southern Quebec. I went panning here several years ago and used a high banker at the head waters of Indian Stream in the extreme northern section of the state. I found a couple of nice nuggets for my efforts.
