Miners Go To Work In Washington
July 2008 by Associated PressNearly two decades after it was first proposed, a mine on Buckhorn Mountain in remote north-central Washington will begin producing gold-bearing ore.
Only the richest ores could be worked and shipped off for processing at a profit. As a result, early mining in the southern part of the Humboldt Range was short-lived. In the 1880s, placers were discovered in Spring Valley and American Valley on the east side of the range...
An agreement between developer Teck-Pogo and an environmental group will allow construction work to resume on the Pogo gold mine.
There is a surprising amount of detectable gold under the water’s surface. The right tools make it much easier to find, and with a little patience and practice you can take advantage of this underappreciated bonanza.
