Leading mining historian Kerby Jackson introduces us to a classic mining work in this important re-issue of “Gold in Washington”. Unavailable since 1955, this important publication was originally published by the Washington Geologic Survey. Featured are the hard to find locations and details pertaining to over 500 placer and lode gold mines in the State of Washington, listed on a county by county basis. Also included are insights into the history of gold mining in Washington, historic mining methods in Washington, as well as details on how mining claims were being staked at that time.
