California's Mother Lode Quartz Veins
May 2015 by Chris RalphThe actions of the hot, ore-bearing solutions are not limited only to the deposition of material within the walls of the fissures.
I’ve been taking a look at the mining and uses of a number of critical metals in series of articles, and it’s time to take a look at antimony.
I am going to keep to the basics of surface indications and visual clues in the rocks and minerals themselves that help me find gold-bearing veins in this classification of deposits.
Even as late as 1906, Delamar was second only to Tonopah and Goldfield in production outshining many better known areas. Since the first discoveries, more than 700,000 ounces of gold have been produced from the mines here.
...the area around Eureka, Nevada is well mineralized and seems to have a bright potential for future production of all sorts of metals.
These conditions don’t just apply to Alaska and the Yukon; they apply to western Canada and even to the mountainous western United States.
While a large number of locations have yielded some placer gold, most of the state’s placer production has come from a few productive districts.
