Sweet Home Alabama! Yes, there is gold to be found in Alabama. According to this document by the Geological Survey of Alabama there 49,000 ounces of gold was reported through 1939 and probably at least that much more has been mined, but not reported.
This is a long document, but it’s worth your trouble to dig through it if you live in Alabama or somewhere nearby, particularly in Mississippi. A lot of Alabama gold fields are in natural forests and that can also work in your favor.
