This is a good subject for all prospectors, here a search results link to help you get started.


The internet is a wonderful tool, with simple search words you can find a vast information resource, information from such a research can be discussed in depth in threads such as this one.

Once you do some research on this subject you can ask more specific questions that will bring more responses from knowledgeable members of this and other forums, geology for gold prospecting is complicated at the very least and depending on the type of gold deposits specific questions needs to be asked.

Also understanding basic geology will help you greatly when it comes to learning about geology in gold prospecting, I would recommend taking a geology 101 course to help with the learning curve and terminologies used in geology, here's a link to an online course that may help with that, you can find other such courses by doing a internet search.


If any of you other members have any links that will help within this topic please post them.

One of my favorite books, "The Rockhouind and Prospector's Bible", by L. J. Ettinger.

Great book for beginners and pros alike.

Rocks, minerals, gemstones and prospecting.

Teaches basic geology, mineral I.D. and some propecting techniques.
