student who is self-committed and willing to study and become more
This booklet is not a simple course in "Introduction to Nuggetshooting
101." Instead, it is meant to be "Advanced Nuggetshooting 421" and is
intended to be semi-technical. It will lead the serious detectorist, who is
determined to find gold nuggets, along a learning path by introducing
little-known technical aspects and correct terminology.
Explanations, references, illustrations, charts, tables, and a glossary round
out the basic information.
Emphasis is placed on epithermal deposits that have formed eluvial
placers, "how to" detect them for gold nuggets, and "how to" understand
the relationship of regional geology to the types of placer deposits.
Modern Prospecting : How to Find, Claim and Sell Mineral Deposits
A gold pan, a couple of screens, a small shovel, rock hammer, hand lens, and sample bags are the essential tools for prospecting. However, to have a better chance of discovering a deposit, a prospector must also recognize the signposts of a favorable area, do the land status research, and follow through with valid claim staking, soil and rock sampling, and assaying. This systematic approach to mineral exploration is used by successful prospectors and mining companies today. Whether looking for gold, platinum, diamonds or any other mineral, anyone equipped with these basic skills greatly increases their ability to discover new bonanzas.
In Modern Prospecting, an experienced prospector passes on information acquired through 20 years of classroom study, field work in the western states and Alaska, and trial and error. Chapters include descriptions of the major types of deposits; interviews with professional geologists; how to obtain an assay; use geochemical and geophysical methods; and stake a proper claim.
With its handy glossary and helpful information on government agencies, websites and other contacts for assays, suppliers, and geological bulletins, Modern Prospecting is the foremost how-to-do-it-right guide to prospecting in the twenty-first century.
