Reed Gold Mine State Historic Site

We have several ore carts on display at Reed Gold Mine, but did you know that none were used when our site was an active mine?

Our mine was too narrow for them to be used and ore carts were very costly. Instead, simple wooden wheelbarrows were used at Reed Gold Mine to transport ore to kibbles, large cast iron buckets, to be raised out of the mine for processing.

So why do we have ore carts on site today if they weren’t used? It’s a way for us to share with visitors how other gold mines operated when North Carolina was known as the “Golden State.”

N.C. Lottery Commercials Hit Airwaves

Posted March 27, 2006 1:04 a.m. EST

RALEIGH, N.C. — Starting this week, you will start to see and hear a lot more about the lottery with radio and TV ads.

The TV ads feature a couple at home scratching off a winning ticket, with a college band, cheerleaders and students with caps and gowns celebrating. The ads also state millions of dollars in proceeds from the lottery will go to help North Carolina schools.

Where To Buy Tickets

Director Tom Shaheen said not to expect “get rich quick” commercials or a “hard sell.”

“The TV ads is an education message. It’s kind of fun, along with informing the public about where the funds are going,” Shaheen said. “The radio ads are a lot more fun and talks more about the individual games.”

Shaheen said the multi-state game, Powerball, will debut in May.

Another in-state game will begin in the fall. The first scratch-off tickets are set to go on sale Thursday.
