How to find gold by James Klein and Jerry Keene.
Soft back, 119 pages, Illustrated B&W, 14cm x 21.5cm
This book contains all of the information you need to know to get started in gold prospecting.
"A group of long time gold prospectors were sitting around talking about the fact that there have been so many changes and improvements in methods of recovering gold in recent years, that most books written about how to find gold are not up to present day standards. They suggested that since the two of us had so many years of experience in gold prospecting and writing about it, that we should write a new, up to date book about the latest and best ways of finding gold".
Taken from the introduction of 'How to find Gold'.
