PREFACE.

In preparing this little work the author has felt the
difficulty which arises in a theoretical dissertation on so eminently
practical a subject as prospecting. It seems like
giving rules and prescriptions for hunting or fishing or any
other natural or practical pursuit. Though theory and
practice are not at variance when happily combined, yet
either without the other proves very unsatisfactory. Thus the
reader of this book, should he start out armed only with
its theory, will find himself for some time pretty much
“at sea “ when he comes to actual practice in the field. As
however, he gradually obtains some practical experience, he
may find this little work of use to him. So, also, the
seasoned prospector, who has hitherto trusted to luck, keenness
of observation, intuition and experience, may find himself
in the future much better equipped by acquiring a little
of the theory.
Whilst we have endeavored to give the prospector all
assistance in our power, as to the best means of educating
himself, describing his outfit, etc., we have devoted special
attention to the description of such geological and other phenomena
as he is likely to meet with in connection with his
work, so that he may have an intelligent idea of them when
he encounters them.
We have selected just as much material as we think would
be most interesting and useful to him, saving him the time
and trouble of wading through heavy tomes and laboriously
picking out from a vast amount of, for his purpose, superfluous
matter, that which he will most require.
The work is intended to be a popular one, addressed to the
average student, prospector and miner and to the
general public. The illustrations are largely drawn by the
author from Colorado mines and Rocky Mountain subjects
which are most familiar to him.
