Gold, worth millions of dollars, has been taken from the rich earth of Oregon. From the gold fields around Jacksonville, in the southwest, to the Blue Mountains in the northeast, men have wrested riches from placer mines. Rotting log cabins, rusty dredges and huge piles of river gravel from Chinese hydraulic mining attest to the time and work men have invested in searching for and finding the precious metal. Some families still take weekend outings to pan or sluice for gold.
