(AP) The rush to find gold and copper has been the fastest of any state in the nation, but there’s also a gold rush underway, according to a new book.
Delaware, in the middle of the nation’s gold and silver rush, is the state with the highest concentration of new gold and the lowest concentration of old copper mines.
The state’s gold mining boom has been driven by two factors: high unemployment, which has fallen to a record low, and a new, more efficient copper mining process that has lowered costs and created new jobs.
The Delaware Journal Square, a state newspaper, said in a report this month that nearly half of the state’s mining companies are headed by women, with nearly all of them in the Delaware Valley region of southern Delaware.
In addition, many of the mining companies have a workforce of more than 30 percent women.
The book, “Silver and Gold: The Delaware Mining Boom and the Changing Face of Mining in the State,” by Emily Smith, the editor of the Delaware News Journal, said there’s an economic incentive to work hard to find new mines because the state is the third-largest copper producer in the country after Colorado and Wyoming.
But there’s a downside to the boom.
The economy has also been hit hard by the recession and economic downturn that has affected many parts of the country.
The jobs created in the mines, the jobs created through the mining industry and the jobs lost to natural disasters are all at a much higher cost than if those companies had stayed open.
Smith said Delaware’s copper mines have lost $1 billion to $2 billion, and some mines have been closed down altogether.
The mining industry is the second-largest in the state, with more than 1,200 mines.
Smith also said a shortage of mining equipment is causing problems with some mines.
The state is struggling to find and buy new machinery to operate mines because of the high costs of equipment.
Smith said it will cost the state more to repair or replace equipment than to repair the mines itself.
The economic impact on the state will be significant, she said.
It will create more than 4,000 jobs, and about 5,000 people will lose their jobs.
Smith also said the state has lost $3 billion in state revenues due to the mining boom.
She said the gold rush is “a very lucrative industry, but it’s also very dangerous.
The mines are dangerous because there are no regulations to protect workers.
They are unsafe because they are being mined under dangerous conditions.
The gold and other metals that they are producing are not for use in commerce but for industrial purposes.
It’s a very dangerous industry.”
The state has an average unemployment rate of 3.6 percent, according, the Journal Square.
It is one of five states that reported higher unemployment than the national average of 4.4 percent in the first quarter.
The unemployment rate is down from a peak of 4 percent in March 2008.
In recent years, Delaware has become the epicenter of the gold and mining boom in the United States.
It had more gold than all of the other states combined and was the second largest producer of copper.
The other states that contributed to the rush are Colorado and Texas.
The U.S. Geological Survey said in its latest report on mining that the U.P.S., the country’s largest copper producer, has produced 2.7 million metric tons of gold in the last five years, or 3.5 tons a day.
The U.K.’s Goldrush magazine has said it’s been producing 5.5 million metric tonmes of gold per day since 2005.
