Having been successful in financing the Friday Gold Mining Company, we now deslrn to
announce that we huve bean appointed tlnnncinl agents of tliu lllCillLANl) GOLD MINKS
COMPANY, a Sumpter, Oregon. corporation, which recently purchased and now owns tliu
Knnpp Group of Mines, consisting of four claims, situated in tliu llluo MounliiiiiH of Eastern
Oregon, on the main Klkhorn divide between the headwaters of Crackur Creek and Hock
Creek, about eiuht miles from the City of Sumpter, linker county, Oregon.
Colonel M l Kolimire, K. M., of linker City, Oregon, one of the most competent and
conservative mining engineers in the Northwest, after making a thorough examination of
this group, speaking of the vein traversing the entire length of I! claims, in his report, stated :
"There are no faults or throws, or any dislocations along its course, but it is a strong,
continuous und well defined vein, showing in all the different tunnels, shafts and cuts to he
well mineralized and distinctly defined. Uut few mines carry commercial values in gold and
silver for so long a distance; in fact, I have seldom seen in my long years in mining exper
ience, a vein so strong and persistent in carrying such fair values as this one for so long a
distance along its course or strike.
"In sulimlttiug this report lor your favorable consideration, 1 would say that as a whole
there are but few mining propositions that have for the future better features, all in all, for
developing into an A No. i Mine. The liiinnock llnrn claim alone will, without a doubt, de
velop into a great mine, for it has every featuru for so doing strength of (Insuring, width of
same and the continuous stretch of ore, and the values from east to west which is shown by
the openings on the vein and the throw of its float fiom the aex.
"For the past three years I have examined many proMirties in Knstern Oregon, ami
this one has always struck mo as being one of the valuable ones."
In placing this stock upon tliu market, wo shall not attempt to mako our showing on ac
count of the adjoining projwrtics, or to make you !ellovo we have a big mine, just because
we happen to be on the same zone ns the ureat North Pole, K. and K., Columbia and Golcouda
on the west, and the Maxwell, Hobbins-Klkhorn und the liaisley-Klkhorn on the east, but
will simply let the Knapp Group of Mines show for itself.
We ask you to visit the property, learn the facts for yourself ; ami if you are desirous of
making a fair investment, you may visit the proerty without cost to you ; wo will pay your
exnse8 if the facts are not exactly as represented.
The first allotment of 100,000 shares of this stock will be placed on the market on the
20th day of February, 11)03. We will fill orders on and after that date ; and all orders received
prior thereto will lie placed on file with the secretary and the stock issued on February 20th,
in the order in which the subscriptions are received. Wo resurvu the right, however, in rase
of an oversubscription, to return you your money. We now invite you to send in your or
