Prospector Blowing On Pan of Fine Dirt

leave a comment »

  • Title: Prospector blowing on pan of fine dirt which contains particles of gold in order to blow the dirt away and leave the heavy gold. In this dry panning the pan is rotated until the dirt is on one side and then with a decisive toss it is thrown into the air, the light dirt being then blown away by the wind and the heavy gold being caught again in the pan. Pinos Altos, New Mexico
  • Creator(s): Lee, Russell, 1903-1986, photographer
  • Date Created/Published: 1940 May-June.
