Gold in Sullivan County

1911 postcard of Dushore, Sullivan County

From the Bloomsburg Columbian., May 01, 1902:

Peter Gilmore, a Sullivan County farmer, has found gold on his farm.  Recently he discovered what he thought was gold quartz and sent some of it to an assayer, who yesterday returned the analysis, showing that the quartz contains gold to the value of $1.40 per ton.

As mines in the Western fields producing as low as 30 cents per ton are operated, Mr. Gilmore is elated, and all land in the vicinity has taken a sudden rise.
