Cumberland gap / southeast Kentucky. . Has anyone tried this area? I know a few places with streams and creeks in areas that are in areas either logged or strip mined.  Never heard of gold up there though.

No, not really supposed to be any around that area, never hurts to test though, NE Ky around Cincinnati would be more likely

I found a 14 carat gold class ring with a red stone (ruby) from the University of Miami of Ohio in London, Kentucky on the sidewalks once in 1980. Found a 20 dollar bill too another time. I thought I was rich. That was due to being a kid and out and about all the time.

I also found a gold retirement watch made by Bulova in the Atlantic Ocean at the St Mary's River in 1977. Now that one was a surprise, I was just feeling around the ocean floor with my hands for sand dollars like I always did and come up with a gold watch. It must of been lost a long time but then again the ocean is rough. It was too far out to find with a metal detector although I know metal detectors where being manufactured then and most of been cheaper then hand held video cameras then but it wasn't that rare to see a man with one. LOL, I've yet to see a woman with a metal detector unless you count stud finders.
