I, too, have wondered if the interest in gold prospecting and ingot-casting came about because someone had read of the Klondyke gold rush. Ingots are certainly a dramatic presentation, and a good substitute when properly impressive nuggets are proving difficult to find. Any guesses what that book might have been? Something by Jack London, maybe?

Thank you, John Wilson, for answering a question I have long had: is staking a claim something that happens in English law? Partially growing up in the mountains of California, with gold and silver workings fairly common in the areas I hiked, the idea was completely natural to me, but it always seemed out of place in an English setting.
