HIGH VALUES AT
THE LUCY GROUP.
Prest. Stott Reports That Face
Of Drift Shows Good
A letter from Sam R. Stott,
prosideut of the. Groouboru Mines
and Development company, of Groou
boru City, operating tbo Lucy group
in tbo Greenhorn district, to Morris
Sullivan, vice president of tbo com
pany, who is now in the city, yester
day, states that the ledge is getting
moro solid and is carrying good
values in gold sulpbldeB. He roasted
some of the ore and panned some,
and while no assays have been made,
be says that it will doubtless yield
high values. Mr. Stott further
stated in bis letter that all the logs
for the cabins have been out and
peeled, and that arrangements .are
being made for continuous develop
The property of the company con
sists of three claims, the Lucy, the
Muslo and the O. K., situated near
the Morning, Earl and Psyche, and
containing a continuation of the
Morning ledge. There Is an excel
lent mill site adjoining the Muslo
claim and an abundance of water and
wood for all purposes. The claims
Ho ou the h oad wators'of Illg Crook
in tbo vicinity of tho well known
properties mentioned. Tho main
ledge la a contact betweou slato and
serpentiuo, the aerpentiue forming a
reef about a hundred feet higher than
the slate lying alongside. The vein
parallels Big Creek which flows
through all tbo claims.
The presout work consists of a
drift on the ledgo. It was in the
face of tbo drift that Mr. Stott
encountered tho high values reported.
It is a blind lead and us yot has
not been crospout, but It is thought
that it will averago botwoon eighteen
and twenty foot in width. It is
regarded as ono of tho vory promising
properties of the Greenhorn district.
Mr. Sullivan, who is familiar with
tho group and the character of tbo
ore It produces, states that in bis
opinion with ninety days of well
directed development work the
property will rank equally with the
Earl, Morning and Big Johnnie.
