Hoosier Gold Hunters Try To Cure Their Fever

Corn nearly ready for harvest has parts of Indiana bearing a deep golden hue this time of year. But there's actually gold – the rare metal – in Indiana as well.

Corn nearly ready for harvest has parts of Indiana bearing a deep golden hue this time of year. But there’s actually gold – the rare metal – in Indiana as well.

WFIU’s Daniel Robison spent some time with gold hunters and prospectors in Brown County as they looked to strike it rich.

Daniel Robison

Daniel started as WFIU's Assistant News Director in July 2008. He graduated with a B.A. in history in 2007 and earned an M.A. in journalism two years later. Daniel hosts Ask the Mayor weekly and the occasional Noon Edition. He also hosts Morning Edition on Thursdays, sleepily. Daniel's beats include everything News Director Stan Jastrzebski wants him to cover. And it feels strange to type biography of myself in the third person like this. So that's that.
