GALICE CONSOLIDATED MINES COMPAHY
Ono of the Largest Placer Mining Enterprises In the World.
Progress of the Work.
Attracting most favorable ino.itiou
both locally nud abroad the Gal ice
Consolidated Mines Company has
gone steadily ahead with tlio up
building of its rich and extensive
placer properties of Galice Creek iu
the northern part of this county. The
Galice district as a whole is con
sidered ono of the richest in placer
and quartz in tho stato. Until a few
years ago this famous old camp slept
iu the contentment and enjoyment of
i's own bountiful resources, the ir.-
of lumber per day. This lumber was
used in building flumes and bridges
along the line of the new ditches,
sluices in the mines and several
houses, while enough is stacked up
at tho mill to provide for the proper
working of tho different mines during
Four separate mines are'already in
operation, each with a separate string
of pipe from 10(10 to 15,000 feet long,
giants, tools, hydraulic, derricks, eto.
Tlio uses to which water conihied
estimated that thero is a great
more gold in tho bed of the
creek than when it was first discover
ed by Louis Galico iu I80O.
All mining men, practical aud
theoretical, aro loud iu their praise
of the energy displayed by Manager
A. B. Cousin, 1 iu formulating and
perfecting plaus for tho successful
working of over Hvo miles of this
creek bed, and deeui tho conditions
favorablo and the scheme entirely
feasible and practicable.

rooms was built last summer for
