Description

Leading mining historian Kerby Jackson introduces us to a classic mining work in this important re-issue of "The History and Development of Gold Dredging in Montana." Unavailable since 1916, this important publication was originally published by the Us Bureau of Mines and has been unavailable for a century. A century and more ago, giant dredging machines dug in Montana's rivers and creeks in search of illusive golden riches. First appearing in California in the 1850's, gold dredges finally reached their peak of development in Siberia and New Zealand before becoming popular again in the United States. This book offers a unique historical perspective on the gold dredges that once operated in Montana. This book on Montana mining history is lavishly illustrated with dozens of rare historic photos gold dredges that once operated in Montana, as well as hard to locate plans on how these dredges were designed. Note: This edition is a facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As such, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.show more
