Description

The history of mining the West has been explored and developed much less than the mines themselves. In fact, no book has been written that encapsulates the overall history of mining in the American and Canadian West. While there is a fantastic cache of materials on the history of mining, until now there was no one source that united these materials together. Concentrated in this necessary resource are published materials on all aspects of mining in the western United States and Canada; assaying over 25,000 articles, maps, pamphlets, books, literature, and lore. This guide will both stimulate and facilitate new research by revealing not only what has been done, but what has yet to be done, and some of the potential sources that may be used to do it. Topics Include: *Prospecting *Stampedes and rushes *Mines and mining camps *Mining promotion and finance *Labor and technology *Mining laws and disutes *Literature and lore
