Gold Prospecting - By Douglas M Stone
Australian Goldfields attracted adventurers from all over the world. Huge finds made some rich , while others left destitute. Recent finds in Victoria, Western Australia and elsewhere show that rich gold deposits remain, and Gold Prospecting describes how to prospect correctly and where to find and recover gold.
Descriptions of all major reef and alluvial fields, accompanied by over 30 maps discuss the conditions under which gold occurs.
Prospecting techniques and the construction and use of gold recovery equipment, including the latest metal detectors, are also described.
Douglas Stone, author of Australian Precious Opal, Where to find Australian Minerals, Metal Detecting for Gold & Relics and numerous other books on gemstones, has for years been interested in the search for gold. His field experience in geology and historical research makes this an invaluable guide and reference book for the casual and professional prospector.
