Man what some great books these are!
Thanks for the quick shipping Rob.
I am really going thru the one about Rich Hill, it is very good for a beginner to understand the ways of RH.

Can't wait to get back up Monday and try some new things.

Hey Paul,

Thanks for the huge book order. I'm sure you received both packages since you mentioned the Rich Hill Gold Atlas book. As you can see, Erik Melchiorre gave me a lot of credit in the book. Many of the gold nuggets and specimens are from my personal collection.

Don't hesitate to call or email me if you have questions. Until then, hope you find some nice nuggets!

Hey Rob,
Just checkin in...I am really enjoying reading Jim Straight's books....a wealth of knowledge.

Some books are too technical, but Jim has enough stories to keep his a good read.

See ya,

Paul

Hey Paul,

Some of the terms and stuff might be too technical, but you will start to understand the more you prospect, explore and read the books. Jim's books and articles he has written over the years are a wealth of knowledge to us today.

Chris Ralph's new "Fist Full of Gold" is also a great book and very up to date.

Take care,

:lol: :lol: Jim Straight here... Thanks for the good words... I have been involved in prospecting and mining most of my life... Back before I graduated in 1948 in the mining commumity of Ely Nevada, I already had a strong back ground in mining. As early as 1945 I was working for Sam Robinson underground during the summer... back then there were few regulations regarding teenagers and where they could work. My family was having financial problems and my mother was most happy that I was providing for the family...

I guess I could have become anoher "tramp miner" had I not lisened to several older men, such as my grandfather "Dragline" Miller who told me that the freedom and independence he enjoyed was rapidly becoming more limited.
