The original concept of this problem was to determine if hidden or buried placers existed past the terminal point of the extensive placering in the Siberia District. Several theories have been advanced for the sudden cessation of those placers. All are plausible, and are both for and against an extended placer. The past history relates that some $13,000,000 in gold has been produced in the area, therefore stressing a practical search for additional accumulation.
