Prospecting My Way Across Australia Pt I
October 2010 by Fred MasonAfter contributing to the total, I am proud to claim my share of Ray’s patch. In total, we got almost an ounce of gold from the schist where it seems to have been formed.
...under Oakie Jim’s leadership, Lunker Hill was to become a textbook operation of using handheld very low frequency (VLF) and pulse induction (PI) metal detectors to recover placer gold...
...a substantial number of news headlines reflected the growing realization that much of the “green shoots” optimism of the past few months was premature.
The Rattlesnake Hills (RSH) in central Wyoming had been overlooked for gold, even though it had all of the earmarks of being a major gold district.
A while back I was given a very special opportunity to take my metal detector to one of the most famous gold mines in all of California, the Original Sixteen to One mine in Alleghany.
As I arrived at my detecting location, I got all my gear and headed up the trail. I had to stop and take in the devastation all around me.
Few states in the United States have seen mining activity equal the State of Nevada in recent decades. The state is mineral-rich and possesses a regulatory apparatus that encourages mining activity.
Occasionally there are bills that have good intentions but unintended consequences that make them “bad bills.” The Paleontological Resources Preservation Act is one of these bills.
