Government Printing Office 1870. Book Review: The North American Review. v.113, 1871. "This volume is, indeed, almost a monograph of the "Comstock Lode," more than three fifths of it being devoted to the geology, exploitation, and metallurgic treatment of the ores of that celebrated mineral vein. The remainder of the volume is chiefly occupied by a discussion of some of the other important mining districts in Central and Eastern Nevada, especially those of Reese River and White Pine. In a special chapter the coal basin of Green River in Wyoming is described, and a review of the mining interests of Colorado forms the conclusion of the volume. The chapters on the geological structure of the Comstock Lode and the Green River Coal Basin are by Mr. King; the remainder of the work is by Mr. James D. Hague, with the exception of a chapter on the chemistry of the method of amalgamation in pans, commonly known as the Washoe process, by Mr. Arnold Hague, and shorter contributions in regard to some of the less important districts in Eastern Nevada by the last-named gentleman and by Mr. S. F. Emmons." Engravings: Frontispiece.
