THE LAST WORD ON PLACER GOLD IN BRIT COLUMBIA - old and new
« on: November 11, 2006, 01:57:13 PM »
Hi folks - there is A LOT written in books, papers and reports on placer gold in BRITISH COLUMBIA.
Often these can be of priceless value to the recreational miner, geologist, mining company or whatever.
So this thread is where I'll post my list for BC.
Feel free to add to the thread, but please stick to BC or it'll be a big puddin'y mess!

It's going to to be in alphabetical order, A-Z.
Hopefully I can,or Larry can, update it as it will always be out of date.

GOOD PROGRESS - thanks to Geo Jim of Alaska, another dozen articles have been added today 6th Feb 2007 - thanks Jim!

cheers - Steppe

The morphology (size, roundness, sphericity) of 1,636 gold grains (0.25 to 17mm) from 19 placer mines was studied. The author claims in-situ growth of coarse, angular grains is indicated by "composite" grain structure of aggregates of gold particles welded by high-grade filamentous gold, perhaps reliant on organic complexing agents produced below a dense forest cover. Rounded grains commonly show a crystalline structure perhaps from cold hammering of gold during transport. Gold grains may undergo cycles of coarsening, rounding, digenesis and breakup in response to repeated recycling through Pleistocene sedimentary environments.

Y no Y?  :'(

Z - BRITISH COLUMBIA
zzzz - wake up please!  ::)

Please add whatever papers, articles, reports you've read on BC placers.
Mebbe check through those you've got and not looked at for a while.
The better the list the better for all miners, and the better for the status of miners in BC!
