GEOTREASURES - GOLD, NICKLE INDIUM AND MORE : Sabina's 1964 Geotour Revisited.

Her guide included detailed directions to follow on the road. In those days there was no GPS so finding these sites was often dependent on how long the bushes have had to grow up. Indeed with changes in road locations, some of these sites may be exceedingly difficult to find. But this only adds to the joy of discovery and the mystery that is wrapped in time.
