Tenants are reporting large nuggets of gold discovered in historic downtown Nevada City. The Stonehouse sits near the confluence of Deer Creek and Little Deer Creek where early gold rush miners reportedly “panned a pound of gold a day.” Kept relatively unrevealed since August of 2009, the discovery could no longer be kept secret.
“It’s really amazing. There’s still gold out there after all of these years.” said one lucky prospector. “Ever since I started working here, I have seen my coworkers coming back from lunch exuberant and a little dirty. I’ve been wondering what it was all about, but now I know.”
