Hooked On Gold's QUESTION OF THE WEEK: JANUARY 3, 2007.
In Montana, name the county that has produced the most placer gold to date, and what is the total amount in ounces?
NO COPY AND PASTE ANSWERS, PLEASE.
ANSWER: Madison County.....2,507,250 ounces of placer gold. That number is half of the total amount found in the county including lode gold. It is not usual that the placer gold amount is anywhere near the lode amount.
