The elementary group enjoyed a field trip to the Consolidated Gold Mines in Dahlonega on November 19, 2013. The students explored a cave that was used for hard rock gold mining. They were thrilled to try their hand at placer mining and to bring home gold and minerals that they found themselves. They were treated to a glimpse at hibernating bats in the cave as well! What fun!
