ana water right on Big Limoer
Creek, in the Cable Cove district.
The ledge has been stripped for
two hundred feet from the water
course and traced by means of
open cuts to the summit of the
mountain, jooofeet, or the length
of two claims.
The company is capitalized at $ 1,000,
000, one-quarter of which is treasury
So far as prospected by these surface
workings the ledge has an average width
of seven feet. The ore is an iron pyrites
carrying gold, (its principal value), some
silver and a small per cent of lead and
copper. Thirty or forty assays of this
surface ore have beenjmade, from sam
ples taken across the vein, and the low
est returns were 14.61. the highest
49.62, averaging better than 20.
Across the creek, on the Gipsy Queen
group, where extensive development
work is being done on the same ledge,
by a Boston company, at a depth of 60
feet, samples from across the face of the
tunnel assayed $64.92. These workings
demonstrate that the per centage of lead
increases with depth, as well as the gold
values, making the ore easy to treat.
The Gipsy KingGold Mines Company
will begin at an early day to drive a tun
nel, which will cut the vein at a distance
from its mouth of from co to 60 feet and
at a depth of about 15 feet. When the
tunnel reaches the ledge, it will turn and
drift from that point in ore that will
doubtless pay to ship.
For the purpose of raising funds with
which to prosecute this work, the first
stock offered for sale has been placed
upon the market. Fifty thousand shares
are now offered at FIVECENTS.no more
nor no less. When this is disposed of
the price will be raised. Every share of
stock, except that placed in the treasury,
is pooled for one year from January 1,
1901, so that this statement can be relied
upon as strictly true, The market will
never be flooded with Gipsy King stock.
Orders for blocks of less than $00 shares
are not solicited.
All money should be sent to the treas
urer of the company, J. H. Robbins, who
is president of the First Bank of Sumpter.
