THE GOLD DEPOSITS OF NOVA SCOTIA: AN ANALYSIS OF THE HISTORY AND PRESENT STATUS AND A HYPOTHESIS CONCERNING THE STRUCTURAL FEATURES OF THE PROVINCE IN RELATION TO THE DEPOSITION OF GOLD.

Gold was first found in Nova Scotia about 1830-40, but its significance at that time was not appreciated. Probably the first discovery that resulted in any work was made by Lieut. C. l'Estrange, at Mooseland, on the Tangier river, in 1858. Since that time gold has been mined with varying success until now, and from 1868 onwards work has never altogether ceased.
