Prospector Panning Gold

leave a comment »

  • Title: Pinos Altos, New Mexico. Prospector panning gold. The light objects are probably not gold as it is very unusual to find pieces this large in this section. They are probably mica (fools’ gold) or mercury, which is used to attract the gold
  • Creator(s): Lee, Russell, 1903-1986, photographer
  • Date Created/Published: 1940 May.
