Recommended Posts

Jim Straight here ~~ B.S Degree in Geological Engineering; Mackay School of Mines, 1954... Back in the 1950-60's I was a freelance mining consultant in this area... Back then "414" was my Main Reference.

Bulletin 414~~ a reprint by Jim Straight's Publishing company. 75 pages... Includes map of parts of Humboldt, Lander and Churchill counties, Nevada (Note: Humboldt county now includes Pershing county)

The report is bounded between the 40th and 41 parallels and the 117 and 118 meridians. 414, by F.L. Ransome is the first reconnassances of the region and was undertaken in 1908 as the basis ofof some value to those interested in the mining development of north-central Nevada

which now includes Placerites Rabbit Hole, Majuba Hill, Tungsten, Seven Troughs,and other area/ communities within Lovelock, Unionville, Imlay and Wimmemucca. For those of you who are serious about metal detectinf in northern Nevada; you may find a "snippet"of information

within this prliminary investigation...

A total of about 25 reprints are available... Pleease contact jimstraig@earthlnk.net... I will send you a copy by priority mail with a SASE and then you can send me $15.00 as full payment.

Steve... <jimstraig@earthlink.net> I check my spam list

and will reply right away... Due to the size of the included map... I send in a priority mailing envelope.

My background... Geological Engineer Mackay 1954... old

school... Small mining consultant from 1957 to 1982.

414 was one of my better reference books... the repint

is spiral bound, printed single sided, about 80 pages, clean... the map is rather fragile so do not treat it rough...

Hi Jim, hit some warm weather up here, so I read that #414 Bulletin, excellent thanks.

Question: Is there another later (1920s-today) Bulletin that covers that 7 Troughs and Trinity Range area??? If so what's the Bulletin number and do you offer them for sale???

Many Thanks again that #414 is a gem from 100 years ago. Fritz...

Thank you "im a Congress...man for ordering both 414 and also 601.

I really appreciate Rob Allison for his friendship and continued

support over the years. Rob sells my well known "ADVANCED Prospecting

& Detecting for Hardrock Gold" which has been revised and updated

seven times over the last 14 years.

I have made a major revision by adding more nuggetshooting tips

on using either a PI-type gold specific metal detector or a

VLF-type detector. I also added a 30 page expanded Appendix on Meteorites.

This edition is known as the September 2010 Edition with 83

pages on prospecting & detecting for hardrock gold and associated eluvial placers.

It now has a total of over 40 charts, illustrations, photos in

black and white and full laser color.

It is printed on a full color laser printer in a large and

busy printshop when they have spare time. They also spiral

bind it using quality paper.

Thanks Jim,

I got the package today and have already scanned them. They look like a wealth of information!

I enjoyed talking to you and hope to meet you in person one day.

Thanks again to Rob for hosting this forum, I have learned more stuff right here than I could have learned on my own in a million years.
