The ioriiruion in which the gold
is found is so peculiar that Mr.
BecLer adopts the new expression
"stringer belt," as most of the
stringers of goldsbearing quartz are
txtremely thin. The run through
a slate formation split apart by
thousands of tiny lonitudinal cracks,
in which the gold veins run.
The slate, as a rule decomposed,
can be waahed down by the impact
of a stream of water. The debris is
carried through sluices, where the
fre? gold is caught, fJhe very fine
golu usualiyescapes. Heavy pieces

mines that are worked is about 5
