      There are countless prospecting books out there. They all teach the same general theories and show the same diagrams. While they are not bad books, in fact many are great and no collection should be without them, this book is written to take a different and simpler approach, especially for those who are brand new to prospecting and have failed to find their first color of gold/5(88). Color In Your Pan - Recreational Gold Prospecting In Montana. By: Marlene Affeld Ranked the number seven gold producing state in America by the United States Geological Survey, Montana has a rich and colorful mining history and an abundance of prospecting stories.   In alone, the report finds placer mining—or the mining of streambeds and other deposits carried by water or erosion for minerals—was active in nearly operations around the state.

Placers account for more than two-thirds of the total world gold supply, and roughly half of that mined in the States of California, Alaska, Montana, and deposits result from weathering and release of gold from lode deposits, transportation of the gold, and concentration of the gold dominantly in.

Glacial PLACER GOLD deposits: The mineral examiner working in the Western States may seldom encounter a placer directly associated with glacial deposits but, on the other hand, it is not unusual for a miner to assert that a particular deposit, particularly if its origin is obscure, is a “glacier” Working placer deposits in the United States book.

In geology, a placer deposit or placer is an accumulation of valuable minerals formed by gravity separation from a specific source rock during sedimentary processes. The name is from the Spanish word placer, meaning "alluvial sand".

Placer mining is an important source of gold, and was the main technique used in the early years of many gold rushes, including the California Gold Rush. Name 4 federal laws that regulate mining activities in the United States. General mining law of any person can lease land from the government for free without paying fees and pay part of profit 2.

Placer deposit, natural concentration of heavy minerals caused by the effect of gravity on moving particles. When heavy, stable minerals are freed from their matrix by weathering processes, they are slowly washed downslope into streams that quickly winnow the lighter matrix.

Thus the heavy minerals. In the United States mining law, mineral deposits that are not veins in place are treated as placers so far as locating, holding and patenting are concerned.

But for the purposes of this book, the term "placer" is applied to deposits of sand, gravel, and other detrital or residual material containing a valuable.

But others make serious investments with mechanized equipment, and dig out a livelihood working placer deposits in stream valleys, terraces, beaches or dry concentrates. Most of the gold produced in the U.S. comes from lode deposits. About 80% of the nation’s annual domestic gold supply is collected at its 25 largest gold mines.

The Many Rewards of Finding Gold. Anyone who pans for gold hopes to be rewarded by the glitter of colors in the fine material collected in the bottom of the pan.

Although the exercise and outdoor activity experienced in prospecting are rewarding, there are few thrills comparable to finding an assay report showing an appreciable content of gold in a sample obtained from a lode deposit. Full text of "Placer Gold Deposits of Arizona" See other formats.

Placer mining / ˈ p l æ s ər / is the mining of stream bed deposits for may be done by open-pit (also called open-cast mining) or by various surface excavating equipment or tunnelling equipment.

Placer mining is frequently used for precious metal deposits (particularly gold) and gemstones, both of which are often found in alluvial deposits—deposits of sand and gravel in.

In its travel south from the Arctic it passed over an area of sedimentary rocks south of Hudson and James Bay with no gold leaving the soil covering the Abitibi region with no gold hence the absence of placer : Geotek.

Until gold coins could circulate in the United States. They were withdrawn from circulation when a worldwide economic depression forced devaluation of the U.S. dollar. For years beforethe United States had valued gold at $ per fine troy ounce. In the price was increased to $35, in to $38, and in to $   Placer Deposits.

A placer deposit is a concentration of a natural material that has accumulated in unconsolidated sediments of a stream bed, beach, or residual deposit. Gold derived by weathering or other process from lode deposits is likely to accumulate in placer deposits because of its weight and resistance to corrosion.

Coastal placer deposits in the China Seas mainly exist in sandy and sandy-gravel coasts and formed primarily during the late Pleistocene and Holocene (Liu, ).

Chen, Yang, et al. () summarized distributions and divisions of placer deposits and ferromanganese nodules/crusts in the sea areas of China and outlined 3 prospecting zones and 24 divisions of the placer deposits (Figure ).

Other articles where Stream placer is discussed: placer deposit: several varieties of placer deposits: stream, or alluvial, placers; eluvial placers; beach placers; and eolian placers.

Stream placers, by far the most important, have yielded the most placer gold, cassiterite, platinum, and gemstones.

Primitive mining probably began with such deposits, and their ease of mining and sometime. Placer gold mining in the United States spans a period of nearly years. Earliest mining took place in the Eastern States and particularly in the southern Appalachian region during the late 's and early 's, but the richer deposits were soon exhausted, and interest turned to the West.

If you are searching for gold in the Sierra Nevada, do yourself a favor and get a copy of this book. It is a compilation of a century's worth of mineral resource surveys, mine production data, river dredging locations, over 20 county maps, and much more.

Large placer deposits are still mined in Alaska, and smaller commercial operations produce across the western US; an echo of the gold rush still lives on. The various gold rushes in Australia helped end the transportation of convicts and kick-started the development of a single country, uniting previously separately governed colonies.

The word “placer” was used by early Americans, and others, to designate gold-bearing deposits of stream gravel. This term is thought to have been derived from the Spanish plaza, meaning “place” or, locally, “sand bank.”The Germans used the word Seife, or Erzseife, for a placer type of mineral deposit, while the British, Australians, and South Africans, among others, referred to.

Jim’s life only grew in the mining/prospecting field. In he graduated from the McKay School of Mines with a B.S. degree in Geological Engineering. Gold prospecting and identifying gold-bearing areas have become increasingly more feasible, due to research developments on the geological process of gold formation.

(See References 1.) Gold bearing areas, mostly throughout the western United States, have drawn and sprouted entire communities based on prospecting. Needless to say, few important river deposits remain unknown in the United States.

Gravel-plain deposits: These are somewhat difficult to define as they may grade from river or bench deposits, into flood-plain or delta-type deposits and they can be geologically old, or recent. Gravel plains are found where a river canyon flattens and widens. Gold mining in the United States has taken place continually since the discovery of gold at the Reed farm in North Carolina in The first documented occurrence of gold was in Virginia in Some minor gold production took place in North Carolina as early asbut created no excitement.

This is the first time that the southern gold belt has been explored using modern methods, an area that many people have forgotten how significant gold production was in the past. Most gold mines in the area were discovered by following placer deposits to their source.
