Abstract

"In the following report I have made no attempt to "white-wash" or to exaggerate conditions as I found them in the Choco. In plain language I have endeavored to give the reader a picture of the obstacles met, and overcome by the engineer in his search for placer deposits of gold and platinum with the prospect drill in the jungle"--Foreword, page 1.
