Prospecting for Diamonds: Is It a Diamond or Crystal Quartz?
July 2001 by T.D. LaRuneProspectors typically stumble upon diamonds while searching for other minerals.
Excerpts from CMJ published 50 years ago this month.
Placer gold was found near South Pass, at the south end of the Wind River Mountains, in 1842, and lode gold was discovered in the same area in 1867. The principal gold rush was between 1867 and 1874.
Our world of precious metals showed several conflicting trends. Gold fell sharply from last month’s highs to the area between 265 and 270 and then stabilized in that area.
The Delamar (Ferguson) mining district is located in Lincoln County, Nevada, some 29 miles by road, southwest of Caliente. The district is on the west side of the Delamar Mountains at elevations between 5,900 and 6,600 feet.
