It is our goal to introduce you to the locations where there still may be remnants and evidence of this advanced civilization. Evidence in the forms of art, architecture, and artifacts. All of which can be found in plenitude in and around Amador County.
Is it possible that an ancient civilization chose this Northern California area to have settled? The evidence is everywhere.
Take a look around and decide for yourself.
A brief disclaimer: This website is not staffed by teams of archaeologists, geologists, evangelists, nutritionists, violinists or any professional distinction ending in "ist". You will not find a PhD, nor a specific qualifier of any kind here. The gold that is figuratively referenced in the title is meant to describe the quantity and quality of ancient evidence here (and perhaps everywhere) in plenitude. This is no place to find gold mining history or information.
This is largely a collection of photographs, videos, art, and opinions accompanied by a healthy dose of conjecture as to the significance thereof. Though there is a hint of confidence, we make no claims of exactitude, nor empirical veracity where thoughts and feelings are concerned because these are opinions... and even strongly held opinions rooted in the best data available are, and should be, in a perpetual state of flux. Even that last statement is an opinion.
This website is presented to the public as an attempt to provide some context and content for those interested in the missing chapters of the hidden record of our ancient world, it's prior inhabitants, and its absolute origin.

" I believe we are a species with amnesia, I think we have forgotten our roots and our origins. I think we are quite lost in many ways. And we live in a society that invests huge amounts of money and vast quantities of energy in ensuring that we all stay lost. A society that invests in creating unconsciousness, which invests in keeping people asleep so that we are just passive consumers or products and not really asking any of the questions." - Graham Hancock
