The Griz7.lv uroup consists of the "Colorado" and the "Colorado Extension" quartz mineral claims,
situated in the Sumpter District of Baker county, Oregon, six miles northwest of the town of Sumpter, form
ing part of tne rich mineral zone wherein are located producing mines of fabulous wealth, such as the
"North Pole," "Columbia." "Golconda," "Bonanza" etc., etc. Development work on the Grizzly group
has disclosed a gold bearing ledge of remarkably high value, development work has progressed and there is
every reason to expect the property will become one of the greatest mines in Oregon.
Read Our Proposition Carefully
A limited amount of Treasury Stock is offered for sale at SIX CENTS Per share, payable
c.ish down or in twelve monthly payments, the funds realized being used tor opening up the property and
making a producing mine of it. The purpose of the company is to have a steady inflow of cash to meet
monthly pav roll and expenses incidental to active development work. This can be realized by selling stock
on monthly installments just as well as if selling for all cash.
