Whether during work or play, Sid Wayland has always been a big fan of hard rock and heavy metals. As a machinist, Sid worked in a copper mine and a sand processing plant, and has worked on two different gold separating machines. Author of many articles for Canadian Rockhound Magazine, Sid drew on more than forty years of experience with an interest in mineralogy while writing this book.
Answered lots of questions. Brought a new light to processing minerals. Will take with me on the prospecting trail. - Bob Wiseman
