Affords an opportunity for profitable investment that cannot be equaled in the Sumpter District. The mine is now
beintf actively operated and has reached a degree of development practically assuring the stability of the mine.
The ledge, carrying high values in gold, copper and silver, is over 40 feet in width. Work is being rapidly pushed,
tunneillng and sinking on the ledge, blocking out ore and adding to the pay dumps, and it may be expected that
the mine will be a producer and the company a dividend payer at an early date. Every dollar realized by the
company from the sale of treasury stock is being used for improving the property. The sale of stock will be con
tinued until the mine is a producer,. As development progresses the price of stock will be advanced.
Secure this stock now at 10 cents. That it will be worth its par value withjn 12 months is a conservate es
timate. Subsciiptions for stock may be sent to the company direct, or to the First Bank cf Sumpter, Sumpter, Ore.
