Steve... <jimstraig@earthlink.net> I check my spam list

and will reply right away... Due to the size of the included map... I send in a priority mailing envelope.

My background... Geological Engineer Mackay 1954... old

school... Small mining consultant from 1957 to 1982.

414 was one of my better reference books... the repint

is spiral bound, printed single sided, about 80 pages, clean... the map is rather fragile so do not treat it rough...

Hi Jim, hit some warm weather up here, so I read that #414 Bulletin, excellent thanks.

Question: Is there another later (1920s-today) Bulletin that covers that 7 Troughs and Trinity Range area??? If so what's the Bulletin number and do you offer them for sale???

Many Thanks again that #414 is a gem from 100 years ago. Fritz...

Thank you "im a Congress...man for ordering both 414 and also 601.

I really appreciate Rob Allison for his friendship and continued

support over the years. Rob sells my well known "ADVANCED Prospecting

& Detecting for Hardrock Gold" which has been revised and updated

seven times over the last 14 years.

I have made a major revision by adding more nuggetshooting tips

on using either a PI-type gold specific metal detector or a

VLF-type detector. I also added a 30 page expanded Appendix on Meteorites.

This edition is known as the September 2010 Edition with 83

pages on prospecting & detecting for hardrock gold and associated eluvial placers.

It now has a total of over 40 charts, illustrations, photos in

black and white and full laser color.

It is printed on a full color laser printer in a large and

busy printshop when they have spare time. They also spiral

bind it using quality paper.

Thanks Jim,

I got the package today and have already scanned them. They look like a wealth of information!

I enjoyed talking to you and hope to meet you in person one day.

Thanks again to Rob for hosting this forum, I have learned more stuff right here than I could have learned on my own in a million years.
