Consolidated Gold Mine

Start planning your visit to the largest hard rock gold mine east of the Mississippi and it’s located right here in Dahlonega, Georgia! Founded in 1896, the gold mine focused on removing gold trapped in quartz veins throughout the property.  The Knight or “Glory Hole” vein was discovered after hydraulic mining had cleared away the top soil and reached rock in 1880. The mine was forced to close in 1906 and was left abandoned for 75 years. A Kentucky family wishing for a change of occupation after several generations working in coal mining brought new life to the mine and opened it for tours.
