Hello All,

Many are still looking for Jim Straight's 7th Edition of "Follow the Drywasher." I deal directly with Jim and one of the publishers on this book, so I always have it in stock.

This book is over 300 pages. This book has over 50 years worth of valuable information Jim has gathered from being a successful Geologist, Prospector, Nugget Hunter & Famous Author!

In my opinion this is one of the best books written by someone in the know, Jim Straight.

Hey Rob... I understand the Nuggetshooter's Bible is, as I write this, on back order.

Although it was last edited and updated in 2004 it seems to be still of revelence to the serious prspectors. Take Care... jim straight

Hey Rob... there is now greater interest in epithemal precious metal deposits that are associated
with Tertiary extrusive volcanism. I briefly mention them in Appendix D (January 1996).

As I write this, there is getting to be more interest in metal detecting "old worked out and
abandoned silver and gold epithermal deposits" within the central North American Cordillea.

Over 10 years ago, I wrote an article that is now being accessed on google:
"Epithermal deposits assocated with Teriary volcanism --and the feasibility of metal detecting for them...
ICMJ December 2001.

For those who have bought a copy of Vol 3 from Rob... check out the illustration on pg. 186.

To summarze, today those using a modern metal detector while out working around the mine-dump
or hillside slope of a long forgotten epithermal type deposit known to carry gold and silver values
may detect chunks of speci or even electrum (Silver-gold) nugget.

As an example; Back in 1909, Ellen Nay while walking along Saulsbury wash (off of what is now know
as Interstate Hwy 6 beteen Tonopah and Ely) eyeballed a boulder laced with gold. The boulder
weighed 75 pounds and led to finding the camp of Ellendale.

Howdy All.... First I thank all of you who have bought a copy of Vol 3 from Rob. I'm writing this
to let you know that Rob has recently ordered a few more copies from Plateau Supply in
St. Louis Mo. Rob now has them in his store. jim straight

Hey Jim,

That is correct. I always have them in stock, but was getting low so ordered more to make sure I didn't get into a backorder status on them. Joe has always been good keeping me stocked up on your Follow the Drywasher, 7th edition.

Hope everything is well on your end Jim!
