So do you suggest we add a section for this purpose? Could be a good thing....

Don't think too much, you'll create a problem that wasn't even there in the first place.

THat's up to you, Bill

I think it could be just a thread on mining/geology references. I thought this area a good place as any to start.

I'm sure others have mentioned good books in the past. I think of this as a particularly good read( it's free).

Maybe there's a similar thread in the forum and I just missed it.

I found another book in WIckenburg at a tourist info building run by the HIstorical SOciety( I believe) entitled

"TALES of the WEAVER MOUNTAIN Areas in Arizona TErritory"

by Sheryl Christie of the " No Bars Ranch" in Yarnell, AZ
ISBN 978-0-9817580-0-8, 1st printing (500 copies), 93 pages.

It's localized historical accounts/stories of mining and just everyday life "back in the day" . Just started reading it.

I will contact the author to get permission to post approved, brief portions from the book. At that point I can get some typing practice in...

National and International referance info, eh?

State by state, country by country.

 

If ya been there, tell us about it.

The geology related facts only please.

Strip the sceenery out of the pics and

let us know what's underneith.

 

Heck, I wish I could aford it, I'd grab my AE-1,

my rock pick, and go myself. Pick a spot, any spot, I'd go.

I love that schmidt.

Did someone say "Andes"?  ; )


G-pa made me do it, he gave me my first "Steel" pan.
