"The history and geology of the Mother Lode Gold Country of California were well documented in numerous government mineral resource surveys throughout the century. This book compiles data from those reports, long unavailable, in a concise, convenient edition that concentrates on gold placer, hydraulic, and drift mines, giving location information as well as history and past production figures. Covering the mines of the Mother Lode, it also includes the other gold-producing counties of the southern and northern Sierra Nevada range, and the dredging areas of the American, Feather, and Yuba Rivers. More than twenty county maps complete this valuable guide to prospecting the Gold Country of California." --from Gem Guides Book Company
