Undiscovered Placer Deposits in Alaska
These conditions don’t just apply to Alaska and the Yukon; they apply to western Canada and even to the mountainous western United States.
by Jim Halloran
The Jenkins Mine Project, Conclusion—Recovery Operations & Summary
This project taught me that you don’t need to be Albert Einstein to apply a little science to your prospecting. I learned that most of the science related to suction dredging is actually common sense. All we need to do is take the time to apply it.

Gold of Plumas County
Plumas County has a rich heritage of gold mining, much of it from placer deposits that can still be searched and panned today. Being at the far northern end of California’s famed Mother Lode, it is quite often overlooked by those searching for gold today—really a well-kept secret after all of these years!

by Fred Mason

Mike scored the best with a total of one-half ounce of gold nuggets. Tom, Brian and Greg each had pieces in the one and a half pennyweight range. The rest of us had small gold and nothing like these three.

Check The Box For Tax Savings
...an entity that is a partnership or limited liability company under the laws of the state in which it is formed may elect to be taxed as a regular C-corporation or as an S-corporation under the check-the-box rules.
by Mark E. Battersby
Melman on Gold & Silver
Gold’s greatest previous bull market took place in 1977-1980 amidst currency instability, and we cannot help but note the similarities between the present and that past era.
