"Alan Probert's Alaskan Gold is an extremely competent, step by step analysis of the placer mining of gold, from the early days of the Gold Rush to today's massive and highly integrated industrial systems. Mr. Probert shows an enormous amount of technical detail, but his explanations help the layman avoid most of the boredom frequently encountered in such treatments." Movie Makers, Dec. 1949, 468.
