Have you ever wondered how misinformation about gold mining makes its way into the mainstream publications and news sources? Recently I stumbled across a “news” story that was pure rhetoric.
• “...especially fond of the articles written by Dan Hausel”
• “You are for the serious miner!”
• “I’ve learned so much.”
…I was looking down on what was a frightening 500-foot sheer drop-off. We were precariously close to the edge as the shoulder was practically non-existent.
Having spent 33 years prospecting off and on in this area, this writer has become very familiar with the region, its mines, the gold (hardrock and placer), wildlife, weather, topography, and history—it has been a friend to me.
Anyone who has found a patch knows the difficulties involved. Those who haven’t can guess, and with any effort will soon realize it.
