New atlas on Quartzsite region gold published

Erik Melchiorre's new book "Gold Atlas of Quartzsite Arizona: Vol. 1, Northern Dome Rock Mountains," has been published. It's described as "a comprehensive guide to the character, distribution, and mining history of placer and lode gold from the northern Dome Rock Mountains."

Erik's previous books on Rich Hill and Octave sold well in the ADMMR bookstore in Phoenix. AZGS (and former ADMMR) staff are acknowledged for their technical assistance in this new book.

The range is just west of Quartzsite and is known for its Mesozoic basement-involved fold nappes and thrust faults. Link
