Gold Atlas of Quartzsite, Arizona, Volume 1

The placer and lode gold mines of the northern Dome Rock Mountains have produced well over the officially recorded 100,000 ounces of gold since the discovery of this district in 1862 by Pauline Weaver. Placer and lode gold mining has occurred continuously in the northern Dome Rock Mountains for 150 years, with exciting new discoveries being made every winter mining season. This is the story of gold in the northern Dome Rock Mountains from its discovery to the present, illustrated with dozens of maps, figures, pictures and historical documents. This gold atlas is intended for those who want to know more about the purity of gold from different gulches, learn how rich specific placers are, and see what minerals may be found at each lode mine.
