Modern Prospecting: How to Find, Claim and Sell Mineral Deposits by Roger McPherson

In this book an experienced prospector shares information acquired through 20 years of classroom study, field work and trial and error. He outlines a systematic approach to mineral exploration including how to 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. Chapters include descriptions of the major types of deposits; interviews with geologists; how to obtain an assay; use geochemical and geophysical methods; and stake a proper claim. Whether looking for gold, platinum, diamonds or any other mineral, anyone equipped with these basic skills greatly increases their ability to discover new bonanzas. With a handy glossary and helpful contact information this is the foremost how-to-do-it-right guide to prospecting in the 21st century.
