About the Author
W. Dan Hausel is only one of a handful of geologists in history who made more than one major gold discovery. He and six other geologists were awarded the "2009 Thayer Lindsley Award for an International Mineral Discovery" by Canada's PDAC for his work on the Donlin Creek gold deposit in Alaska; a gold deposit with as much gold as the Homestake mine. He discovered the Rattlesnake Hills district in Wyoming that is currently being tauted as another Cripple Creek gold deposit, and identified hundreds of other precious metal and gemstone anomalies and deposits during his career. The National Rock Hound and Lapidary Hall of Fame presented him the "Education Award" for his contributions to educating the public. The Wyoming Geological Association presented him their "2004 Distinguished Service Award" for contributions leading to the scientific advancement of geological knowledge. He mapped more than 1,000 square kilometers of complex geological terrain, published more than 1,000 books, maps, papers and abstracts, and gave more than 400 lectures to general interest and professional audiences. His work led Wyoming to being recognized as the most diversifed gemstone state in the US. Eric J. Hausel began his interest in rocks and minerals at an early age by finding a rare fossil fish and then extraordinary ruby gemstones. His interest in geology led to studies at the University of Wyoming where he graduated with degrees in Geology, Physics, Astronomy and Astrophysics. After graduation, he accepted a position with a major oil company and continues his interests in mineralogy, astrophysics, astronomy and art.

And there optimism for finding gold
Now it is true they came down hard on government. But they were stating facts.
It is up to us to take back our property rights.
That was the very important sub lesson.
Government is the enemy of miners as it is the enemy of oil and gas, and fishing, ad
in the future farming. Unless the ignorant masses that suffer from government schooling
understand that what happens in mining destroys the wealth of a nation.
You explorationists will have to lobby and donate to free market causes. It is our
fault if we continue to let government and the environmentalists shut down our industry.
It's loaded with prospects to search for gold and diamonds.
Dan Hausel and Son are to be commended for their accomplishments.
