    Did you find gold or pyrite at the Whitehall mine in Spotsylvania, VA?
    The only gold I have observed in VA is that found in matrix quartz. Have you ever heard of any crystal formations (quartz) in this area?
    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I worked the creeks around there and found many colors including a nice size nugget.
