haa many friends here who will' be
pleased to know more of the prospects.
An Idaho paper haa this to say:
.There are two ell defined- parallel
fissure veins penetrating these claims,
and their trend Is northwest and south
esst." " They are-' traceable for a dis
tance of five miles on the eurface, and
have shown high-grade silver and lead
ore In every place where they have
be-n opened up, assays tunning as
high as 137 ounces ailver and t per
cent lead. Other assays run n Ins
from 63 ounces silver and Id per cent
lead to SCO ounces ailver and i per
cent, lead, averaging about $10 in gold,
were takeii from the .outcropping
along the veins at dlffereot'placea.
There was snrface ore shipped from
this property In the early 80s that net
ted the owners a h stir! some profit, af
ter hauling with ox teama a distance
of ICO miles to the nearest railroad
point at that time. The cause of this
f roperty not being developed esrller Is
becsuse of the fact that It waa owned
by prospectors and miners who held
It at such high figures thst Ihe ordl

Instance, the Snowstorm Noa. 1 and 2
