Fists full of Gold

Chris Ralph the associate editor of the Mining and Prospecting Journal claims there is still plenty of gold out there for the taking.  The title of his book is “Fists Full of Gold” because he hopes that will be what you have after reading his book.  He has put years of experience in writing this book making it the most comprehensive prospecting book that has ever been written. The focus of the book is to teach you how to find gold deposits and what to do after you have. A lot of information is included in this book that simply can’t be found in other books about prospecting. There is plenty of basic information for beginning prospectors, more information for more advanced prospectors and plenty of information for those prospectors that have decades of experience.  The book holds plenty of the latest technology and up-to-date methods for finding gold.

The book will teach you the skills of being a prospector in an entirely different and unique way that is explained in any other book. Equipment is not the only thing that is explained in this book that also explains the methods of using that equipment. Will the most important things that is covered in this book is where to look for gold, and how to recover the gold. The book was designed to be the only prospecting book you'll ever need, or will ever outgrow. Fists Full of Gold contains more than 360 pages for 225,000 words devoted to the world of prospecting.
