Abstract

Writes about prevalence of gold-bearing black sand in Oregon. Lots of water, no winter frost or snow. Marg: "We have an ap which will separate the finest flour gold from blk sand but to make it pay sand shld be very blk & not mixd with much white or rose cold sand. If a large deposit of this can be found the machine will answer admirably. We expect to have an agt up on that coast next summer."
