Modern Prospecting - How to Find, Claim and Sell Mineral Deposits

In this 320 page book Roger McPherson condenses everything from 20 years experience as a prospector on how to find mineral deposits, stake a claim as well as how to sell mineral rights. 

All you need is a gold pan, a couple of screens, a small shovel, a rock hammer, a hand lens and some sample bags.  These are the essential tools needed to be a prospector. However, you can improve your chances of finding a valuable mineral deposit if you learn to recognize the signs of a viable mineral deposit.  It is necessary to know the land status, research old records and then follow through by filing a valid claim.  These are the skills needed to be a successful prospector.

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.
