Washington state has some great gold

2,000,000 ounces of the yellow stuff. Considerable unexploited virgin
placer deposits are known and mining claims can still be worked at a profit
in Washington. For a complete description of every lode and placer mine,
claim, or prospect in Washington request Bulletin 37, Inventory of Washington,
