Description
Arthur Lakes, generally considered to be the "Father of Colorado Geology," taught geology at the Colorado School of Mines, but also saw the need for a book that laymen could use in their quest to "strike it rich." The result was "Prospecting for Gold and Silver". Published in 1895, the book became extremely popular and was followed by several later editions. As valuable today as it was over a hundred years ago, this book is a great resource for today's prospector, historian, or anyone who just wants to know how prospecting and mining is done.
