Columbus Tonopah Mining Co.
TO BUV STOCK IN A PROVEN MINE AT 20 CENTS PER SHARE
The property of the COLUMBUS TONOPAH MINING COMPANY is located on the south end o? Candelaria
Hill. Candelaria. on the north end of the hill, has a record of production of over $60,000,000. One mine
produced $35,000,000 and paid dividends of $4.00 per share pen month for two years and 50c per share per
month for three years Another mine produced $12 000,000. They mined some wonderful ore that milled as
hi&h as 3000 ounces in silver and $480 in gold.
We are not offering you stock in an undeveloped prospect but in a MINE that produced and paid when
mining and milling expenses were from $40 to $50 per ton, whereas the ore can now be smelted for not over
$15 per ton, with a gain of from 10 to 20 per cent, in returns, due to the larger percentage of values obtained
from modern smelting methods as compared with milling processes of years ago.
Property Consists of 12
tZTVr Mining Claims
Location Situate in County of Esmeralda, State of Nevada, District
of Columbus: distance from" railroad. 3 to 5 miles.
Title Possessory, beinp; held bj location.
Names of Claims News Letter Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4; Golden Chariot
Nos. 1 and 2; South Tribune Nos. 1 and 2; Frisco Nos. 1 and 2; News
Letter Turauoise and Gila Turquoise, each 600x1500 feet.
NEWS LETTER NOS. 1. 2, 3 AND 4.
Character of Ore: Silver, running as hi?h as $200 per ton.
Work done: Five shafts, ranging from 40 to 230 feet in depth.
Size of ledec: From one to three feet in width, showing for about
3000 feet in length. ,
The indication is good for permanency, and for good values to great
depth, as ore shows well from surface to deepest workings.
FRISCO NOS. 1 AND 2.
Character of Ore: Silver, assaying as high as $500 per ton, also gold
nml small percentage of copper.
Work done!' Ore stoned in early times to a depth of nbout 12 feet and
from 1 1-2 to 4 feet in width. Value of ore extracted must have been of
high I'rade, as the cost of milling and haulinir was excessive at the time
the claim was woiked, probable cost Icing $40 to $50 per ton.
Size of Ledge: From 18 inches to 4 feet, running in a generally east
ern and western direction, intercsccting the Granite location.
Golden Chariot Nos. 1 and 2
Character of Ore: Gold quartz, assaying as high as $500 to the ton,
with some silver.
Size of ledge: 8 inches to 2 1-2 feet.
Work done: Similar to Frisco Nos. 1 pnd 2.
TRIBUNE NOS. 1 AND 2.
Character of ore: Silver, carrying more nr less oxidized copper
itnin and lead sulphides.
Work done: Croppings cut in several places but no dspth obtained.
NEWS LETTER TURQUOISE AND OILA TURQUOISE.
In connection with these properties arc two claims 600x1500 feet
each, showing for about 1500 feet on the surface float and croppings of
turquoise of good duality and in which will undoubtedly be found good
nlucs in turquoise with proper development.
The cost of milling at the time the mill was running was in the
neighborhood of $50 per ton, and hauling $10 per ton. It is easy to sec
that it required high grade ore to nay, and the fact that in the Oolden
Chariot claims there has been much ere extracted and hauled is proof con
clusive that much ore was uncovered in the working of the mine, and
where high grade ore is found low gr:idc ore is also found, and much ore
must be in place in these mines which would not pay under past condi
tions, and, which under existing conditions, should and will pay great
profits. (Signed) J. P. ST1DGER.

In order to immediately put this nropcrty on n shipping basis, 50,000
shares of the treasury stock arc offered for public subscription at 20 tents
The returns from this offering are to be used in equipping the mine
with modern mining machinery, when it will enter upon a self-supporting
nnd dividend-paying career.
At the close of the treasury offeiing the stock will be listed, and it
teems certain, in view of the early shipments contemplated and nssurcd,
that it should command an immediate premium.
In view of the fact that there is more oro in evidence on this proper
ty than is represented by any other twenty cent (or 40c) stock on the
market, nnd the assurance of the management that the company should be
able to pay n dividend before the end of the present year, we have no hesi
tancy in lccommending the purchase of this security to our friends and
