9780931892073: Gold: The Saga of the Empire Mine, 1850-1956

For centuries, the search for gold has driven humanity across all boundaries and cultures. When gold was first discovered in the United States in North Carolina in 1801, many methods of extraction were developed prior to the California Gold Rush of 1848. The Empire Mine opened in the 1850s in Grass Valley, California, and its preservation is a small but significant example of the development of mining techniques and equipment, hard rock and deep-shaft mining, stamp mills, and the furtherance of geological knowledge in the West. The early years of the Empire s existence saw a number of ownership changes, yet produced 28,100 tons of gold-quartz ore in its first 9 years of operation. The Saga of the Empire Mine is a detailed historical pilgrimage back to the early days of mining and looks at the science of mining, for example, the chlorination of sulfides and the use of cyanide plants, and to its decisive turning point new owners with sufficient financial backing to introduce the best mining equipment and the best available engineers to manage operations. The Empire vein of gold was remarkably persistent and has been followed down into the earth 7000 feet using vertical shafts, and along the strike for over 5000 feet. The yearly financial reports were carefully preserved and attest to the mine s growing wealth over the century in which it operated. Endorsements This book is a must for any researcher or explorer s library and gives valuable insights into the real work of mining the earth s most precious mineral gold.

Frank Woods McQuiston, Jr., was born in Pueblo, Colorado, and spent his youth in mining camps of Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the College of Mines, University of California, Berkeley, in 1931. In 1951 he was awarded the French "Order of Ouissam Alaourite Cherifien" for outstanding metallurgical services to the Moroccan Government. He was presented with the Robert H. Richard award in 1968 by the American Institute of Mining Engineers; made a Distinguished Member of the Society of Mining Engineers Class of 1975, and an Honorary Member of AIME three years later. He was a prolific contributor to the literature of mineral processing and metallurgy including the AIME volumes 50th Anniversary of Froth Flotation, Surface Mining, Mining Engineers Handbook, and the Mineral Processing Handbook. He also was the coauthor of two monographs entitled Gold and Silver Cyanidation Plant Practice and another, Primary Crushing Plant Design. Mr. McQuiston retired from Newmont Mining Corporation in 1969, but remained as a consultant until 1982.
