    Take a look at:

    report.pdf (usgs.gov)

    The price is right!

    Raymond Wallace wrote The Ancient River of Gold - I believe that's based on a California Division of Mines & Geology publication. I saw a copy for sale on the Internets at a very fancy price (looks like it might be a bootleg edition, I'm not sure). Wallace famously said "Mine your own business."

    Here's another one that might be of interest:

    Origin of gold in placer deposits of the Sierra Nevada Foothills, California (sierrageology.org)

    So far, you haven't spent a cent.

    Good luck to all,

    You are very welcome!

    Every state has a department of mines and geology, economic geology, mines and minerals - something. And most of them produce first-rate publications, tailored to each area, and available either low-cost or free. Then there are all the US government resources.

    There's no reason for any prospector or miner to be short of excellent reference materials - they just have to look.

    Good luck to all,

    You are absolutely correct on these publications ! Here in Misery the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has a list of publications that "we the people" have already paid to have done. The master list of publications is free BUT there are some items that will cost you to get. I have used this a lot and have posted this info to many websites and clubs here in Missouri! A great resource for those that'll use them!!
