BUTTE BOT8 CONSOLIDATED MIN
ING COMPANY, Portland, Or. Dear
Sirs:' At the request of the Board of
Dl sectors. 1 have examined the property
owned and ODerated by the Butte Boya
Conaolidated Mining Company.. And beg
leava to report aa follows; .
The eomDanv's nronerty consists of
Ave full lode mining claims, known re
spectively as tne auite uoy. uuiie ooy
Nos. 1, 1, and 4, conUlnlng super
ficial area of 10$ aarea of mineral lode
The property la altuated In the Red
mountain portion of the Ooldfleld min
ing aistnct. IN ye county, nevaaa, ais-
tant - eight miles northeast from the
town of Ooldfleld. A - splendid road
leads 1 direct to '. your property from
Ooldfleld, passable at all seasons of the
....... . Topofzwpny. -
The contour of the land, la the main,
la slightly undulating, being traversed
by an immense dike boldly outcrop
ping through the center of your prop
arty, formlnc a low ridge. ,
The formation consists of rhyollte
(on the foot wall) and quartsite (on
the hanging wall), forming a contact,
traceable along the center of the atrlke,
along the apex of the hill. At thla
contact frequent blowouta- of andeslte
occur, which when crosscut from the
preeent level will prove the permanent
mineral-bearing Bona The shaft haa
been sunk in the rhyollte (foot wall
country rock). In which numerous
stringers of ore have been encountered,
carrying gold values ranging from
$1.80 to'$S0.I per ton. Tbeae stringers
are ail dipping toward the contact,
which Indicatea the presence of a large
and highly mineralised ore body at
the contact of the two formations
(rhyollte and quartsite). The presence
of andeslte at the contaot, together
with the distinct regularity of ths for
mation, demonstrates the fact that thla
firoperty le aituated In the. same geo
oglcal horlson as Tonopah and Oold
fleld; In fact, the character of the for
mation la identically like Tonopah and
the most highly mineralised portion of
the Ooldfleld district. The trend of the
formation la northerly,' dipping at an
angle of 10 degress to ins west. .

The property la being developed
through a vertical shaft which Is now
14$ feet In depth, from which a cross
cut Is now being run westerly toward
thecontacV approximately 160 feet to
the west of the shaft With two shifts
at work, five feet per diem can be made.
which ahould enable you to encounter
the contact in from 10 to 40 days.
The eaulnment consists of one S$ H.
P. Western Gasoline Hoist, gallows-
frame, blacksmith shop, tools and all
requisite appllancee; also bunk and
boarding-houses for ths employes.
Eleven persons in all axe now em-
?loyed, and the work la progressing
avorably under a capable and efficient
The present plan of the management
la entirely adequate and comprehensive,
In accordance with the geological con
ditions,- hence I would not advise any
Ooaelnatoa. , - ;
In conclusion, I desire to state that
In mv long and varied mining ex-
Krience I have rarely encountered a
tter equipped or better managed
camp than is found at your property.
Perfect harmony prevaila between the
company'a officers and the men em
ployed. I oonsldsr your property most
promising, and predict that yon will
aucceed in developing a great mine.

"When yon have apent $40,009 you
will have a 11,000,000 mine,' Engineer
Peterson remarked to Messrs. McCorkls
and McKechnle, after he had written
his report. "I confidently believe that
there la no doubt of this," he added, a
declaration fully Justified by . the last
line of his report, wherein he saya that
"I oonaldsr your property most promis
ing, and predict mat you- wiu succeed
In developing a great mine.",
Mark the 2-aag-aafe.
' "Mark the language of thla man."
Dr. McCorkle enthualaatlcally exclaims.
" The formation demonatrates the fact
that this property is situated In the
same geological horlson aa Tonopah and
Ooldfleld; In faot, the character of the
formation Is identically like Tonopah
and the most highly mineralised por
tion of ths Ooldfleld district,' In which
It is located. Isn't that enough?
Wouldn't that declaration, made by an
expert auch aa Peterson, fill your heart
to the brim with JoyT I tell you wa will
have a mine in Ooldfleld that will open
the eyea of our people, and our ahare
holdera shall havs the aquarest deal In
this transaction that men ever received
from any mining concern on earth. We
had an offer In Ooldfleld for every
ahare of treasury stock we had at it
cents per share, but declined It. We are
going to contlnus this business In the
future as in the past, absolutely on the
level, and when our dividends' begin to
roll In, which will be much earlier, I
predict, than we expected, you will hear
our friends, every one of them, corrob
orate every statement that we ever have
made. The Ooldfleld newspapers hsve
almost dally mention of our property.
They are Just as snthuslastlo aa our
selves. They eee our future. They
know that we are la earnest, and that
we are almost sure to hsvs one of the
great mines of that great gold mining
