A mining company is gambling that millions of ounces of gold are buried in the lush Blue Ridge Hills. It is spending $270 million to get to the ore, reviving memories of California's Gold Rush. The gamble, for Homestake Mining Co. of San Francisco, centers on the price of gold. Richard W. Stumbo Jr., Homestake's chief financial officer, estimates that it will cost $300 to produce each ounce of gold at the new mine. That is the level that gold prices have been hovering at recently.
