Gold Mining Historic Book Collection on CD
The allure of gold has gripped the imagination of people for as long as there has been civilization. Its scarcity, easy malleability, bright yellow color and other features have made it a much sought after metal. Used in industry, as a store of wealth and jewelry, many methods have been devised to extract this ore from the ground and process it into pure and highly valuable gold.
This collection of 34 books explores the methods and technologies used to extract gold ore from the ground and purify it as they were practiced in the mid 1800s to the early 1900s. The books are a fascinating look back at this wildcat era of gold extraction and processing. It makes for fascinating reading for anyone who has a historical interest in the precious metals mining industry as well as for people who are currently involved in gold seeking operations - whether as professional prospectors or weekend adventurers.
