South Pole This Year
WHY DON'T YOU BUY SOMETHING
You all know the North Role mine is the great mine of Oregon and one
of the world's greatest gold producers.
The South Pole mine joins the North Pole at its end lines and owns
jointly three claims with the North Pole, and has in all, 4986 feet on the North Pole
vein. The North Pole is valued by this camp at $10,000,000. Don't the South
Role look as though it ought to be good at present prices?
There is over 2.000 feet of development now on the great. North Pole vein on the
South Role ground. Tons upon tons of ore above the various tunnel levels.
The great North Pole is over 1200 feet deep at the very end lines of the South
Role. Is this not a legitimate mining proposition?" The one ore shoot of the
North Pole mine is valued alone at $5,000,000. Do you suppose this stops at the end
lines of the South Role, because there is a different ownership of the ground?
This stock will advance in price and its advance warranted by the additional ore re
serves blocked out. The South Role should make, next to the North Pole,
the greatest paying mine in Oregon.
