GETTING GOLD PDF Book.

This PDF book holds some great information. If you want to down load the book click the below link.

Gold, gold, gold, gold!
Bright and yellow, hard and cold;
Molten, graven, hammered, rolled,
Heavy to get, and light to hold;
Stolen, borrowed, squandered, doled.

That this much appreciated metal is heavy to get is proved by the high value which has been placed on it from times remote to date, and that it is light to hold most of us know to our cost. We read no farther than the second chapter in the Bible when we find mention of gold. There Moses speaks of ”the land of Havilah, where there is gold”; and in Genesis, chapter xxiv..


PREFACE.

The gold-mining industry has grown considerably since 1891, and it
appeared to the writer that the present would be a propitious time
to bring out a similar work, but with a considerably enlarged
scope. What has been aimed at is to make ”Getting Gold” a
compendium, in specially concrete form, of useful information
respecting the processes of winning from the soil and the aftertreatment
of gold and gold ores, including some original practical
discoveries by the author. Practical information, original and
selected, is given to mining company directors, mine managers,
quartz mill operators, and prospectors. In ”Rules of Thumb,”
chapters XI. and XII., will be found a large number of useful
hints on subjects directly and indirectly connected with goldmining.
The author’s mining experience extends back thirty years and he
therefore ventures to believe with some degree of confidence that
the information, original or compiled, which the book contains,
will be found both useful and profitable to those who are in any
capacity interested in the gold-mining industry.
