"Increased leisure time and increased interest in the out-of-doors is leading more and more families to experiment with placer mining of gold, and sometimes even going on into small-scale production. This Bureau of Mines report supplies basis information on areas of occurrence, equipment needed, prospecting, sampling, mining, and regulations concerning the possession and sale of gold"--Page 1.
