About the area:
Lode gold in the area:
Lode gold has also been found in the general area of
Northwestern Connecticut by John Carter in East Litchfield during the construction of Rt. 8. The fact that there are few reports of lode gold here is more apt to be related to lack of looking rather then lack of gold. Finding lode gold is much more difficult then finding placer gold.
