Hooked On Gold's QUESTION OF THE WEEK: JANUARY 10, 2007.
What is considered to be the most likely source of the placer gold found in southeastern North Dakota, briefly describe how the deposit was formed, and how it was uncovered.
NO COPY AND PASTE ANSWERS, PLEASE.
ANSWER: The most likely source for the gold found in southeastern North Dakota is generally accepted as having come from the Black Hills, brought down over the preglacial surface by an ancient river flowing in that direction. The placer deposit was covered by glacial material, and then uncovered by the Sheyenne River where it was found by prospectors in 1884. http://www.state.nd.us/ndgs/NDNotes/ndn6_h.htm for the link to this page.
