Gold Prospecting - Doug Stone
Outdoor Press - Everything you need to know
'Gold Prospecting' by Doug Stone is the authoritative guide to prospecting techniques, tips, and methods. Recent finds in Victoria, Western Australia and elsewhere show that rich gold deposits remain. This book describes how to prospect correctly and where to find and recover the gold.
It is divided about one third to tips and techniques and two thirds to localities around Australia where gold has been found.
There are descriptions of all major reef and alluvial fields, accompanied by over 30 maps. Prospecting techniques and the construction and use of gold recovery equipment are also described.
Highly recommended as a beginners guide.
