Some Two Months Ago.
CONSTANT DEVELOPMENT AND
A crow of mint hitvo boon kept coiiHtnntly at work over
einco wo acquired this property mid tho Glasgow crosscut
has now encountered and fully crosscut tho ledge. In
this crosscut wo liavo opened up a body of oro sixteen foot
iii width carying Reed cotnnioroial values.
In speaking of coniinorcliil valuoH wo moan ores which
have u suiUcieut niluo t6 pay fur tho extraction, milling
and nil other incidental expenses thereto, with enough of
a margin left ovor to pay Reed dividends to tho stock
holders. This lurRO body of oro was not in tho nature of a Bur
pine, wo simply expected It, us tho surfaco developments
showed this same largo body of oro, and thoro was no
reason why it should not bo oucountorod (n this crosscut
and at this depth.
Wo are now turning to drift on tho ledRo to tho west
from tho crosscut In order that wo may opou up tho richer
ores nt a Rreator depth which nro found on tho surfaco
throughout tho lhinuockburn claim.
This lino of development, wo boliovo, will prove very
interesting to all who nro Interested, or may become in
terested, in the Highland mine as it will cortninly open
up oro bodies rich iu quality and in larRo quantities.
It will demonstrate that tho Highland will rank as one
of tho largest producers iu tho district.
From now on tho development work will lie compara
tively easy and not very expensive, as wo will bo drifting
along on tho lodge where tho ground is much easier to
work than iu tho country rock which encases tho vein.
Every mouth will show a largo increase In our oro reserves.

conservative an expert or mining engineer ho may bo,
