We have to remember that the earliest miners were not geologists, but came from a variety of backgrounds. Their survival depended on finding enough gold so they worked hard and adapted to whatever challenges these new areas presented.
Silver was discovered in the mountains as early as 1875, but the first “official” discovery was in 1881.
The Jerritt Canyon Mine, located in northern Elko County, was abruptly shut down on August 8, and four hundred miners were left wondering what happened.
In part one of this two-part series on gold in Guyana, I describe artisanal mining efforts currently winning alluvial gold from small-scale placer operations located along the lower Puruni River and its tributaries.
This wash was not far from where I once dug a half-ounce nugget, so I knew there was gold in the area.
How would you like it if you could make the actual rules and regulations governing your own business? A dream, right? Well, the existing Federal Mining Law gives a claimholder this ability in the context of organized Mining Districts.
