ing. The popularity and widespread use of placer mining methods indicated that a cost estimating system for placer mining would be of value to prospectors, miners, investors, and government evaluators. This report has been written to aid those involved with placer mining in the estimation of costs to recover valuable minerals from placer deposits.
