In this photo taken Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012, a sign showing the price of gold for that day at $1,698 per ounce, is posted outside the office of the Sutter Gold Mining Company in Sutter Creek, Calif. The company announced Monday, Dec. 17, 2012, that it poured its first gold taken from the reopened mines near Sutter Creek, as it prepared to begin the first large scale Sierra Nevada underground gold mining in a half century.(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
