A Complete Guide To The Art Of Prospecting
 
Yes, it's true, you too can prospect for and find your own gold, it's still out there! If you purchase only one prospecting book, this is the one you want to own.

For years, the pastime of small scale prospecting and mining for gold has been like a well-kept secret among a closed fraternity of friends, and sometimes information has been hard to find and acquire. This is the book that will open things up and tell you everything you need to know to find your own gold. Full of practical information and great illustrations, it is designed to be the one prospecting book you will never outgrow. If you are a beginner, it will tell you things you need to know to get started and find gold. However, even if you have twenty years of prospecting experience, you will still find a wealth of new information and tips in these pages. From equipment operations, to the geology of how gold deposits form, to the nature of coarse gold nuggets, this book takes a unique and different approach in teaching the "trade skills" of prospecting. It focuses primarily on the knowledge you need to find locations rich with recoverable gold. This information is critical because in the final analysis, no matter how well you operate your dredge, metal detector or other prospecting equipment, unless you can find the places where gold is located, your equipment cannot help you recover it.
