There is no gold or diamonds in Illinois...................................latter is not exactly correct,i pan gold south of Harrisburg-pankeyville area(if you know the area this info is like saying that flake of snow is mine in a snow drift) and now that gold prices have risen,almost worth the copperheads and rattlers. found many old gold coins around war bluff., but be prepared this area VERY dangerous for the novice or unequipped, but steeped in American history . stones are found 60-80 miles ne along Indiana border within the Ohio river area. panning since 1987.
