Of Interest to Miners -- - Should
be Kead Carfally. '
Mining is largely a matter of future conditions That is to 5,1V
mining is an industry where there is a larger percentage of possibility of
future reward as the result of faithful honest endeavor in the nrent
than almost any other business undertaking known to the civilized man
today. There is much of abuse and calumny heaped upon the mine
operator and his proposition which is undeserved and many a good
mine is set down as a fraud or worthless which has, when developed in
future years turned out to be a bonanza. There is that element about
mining which makes it more or less a lottery at all stages of the eame.
but mining operations in Colorado and in fact throughout the well
established mining camps ofthe west are being reduced to business
principles with an increasing assurance of reward for investment put in
them as in any other line of business undertaking. How often have all
of us heard such and such fines described and branded as worthless
properties or a fraud which we now know as among the wealthiest
properties of the mining west.
It is interesting to note a few examples close at home, and in fact
the Cripple Creek district furnishes a budget of such instances. The
history of this camp is of such teceut date, that the history of everyone
of its heavy producers is known to almost every man, woman and child
in this city. Referring to worthless mines, or those at least of little
value, one has but to recall that one ofthe leading mine owners of this
city today, not over six years ago sold the great Gold Coin claim claim
for Si, 20O, because he thought that was a great price at that time for
io acres of ground located beyond the supposed mineral belt of
Cripple Creek. The mine is held at over $10,000,000 today.
The Gold King mine, the first shipper iu Cripple Creek, sold in its
early stages of development at $8,000. It is now valued at $1,000,000.
The great Elkton was offered a few years ago for $25,000 and was not
sold because the money was not forth coming. Later it was sold for
$500,000. Today it is held by its owners at $1,875,000.
The ledge of rock outcropping from the surface of the what later
became the Independent mine was pounded by many a prospector and
many a sample was knocked off to be assayed and to show absolutely no
W. S. Stratton, whom this same mine has made many times a
millionaire, one dav knocked off a piece from this outcropping, had it
assayed and obtained values running several hundred dollars. He im- '
