Actually, gold was brought down to Ohio by the glaciers. There are only two states that never had a commercial Gold mining operation, KENTUCKY and Hawaii. There was a commercial gold mining operation near Batavia and is noted by an Ohio Historical Site marker. Gold is native to parts of southeast Tennessee. There are many streams in Ohio that produce very small amounts of gold, mostly flour gold. There are reports of nuggets being found as well including one that was 1/4 ounce. I know a guy that's panning near Xenia and finding gold.
