TH MONTANA POST. FRIDAY,
berepaid for the expenditure of money^urn* to opening up the ground.^Ike Sterling Mining Company, composed of UP or '^,im hardy ^ons of toil, one of which, the^,-i final Iret .-uhscri'iter to the Montana Post,^John TaiaJeikilt, Esq., kindly furnished me^irith ^r :r.^ data regarding this ricinity. He^i, row satisfied that good pay will be realized^in the gulch when properly drained, in erery^claim, sincp a regular channel of pay gravel^^t thick has been struck. This com-^. , . -\ ' ^,l f^W aj ilrain ^litrh in. nr. i^the lower end of their 2.000 feet of^lrlv.-l. They made their first clean np last^tvp*k. realning $11 per day to the hand.

IsM wages, which means mora than^juliaarj miners pay, ($5 j^er day j. A tributa^^ry of Norwegian Quick, and named after^in* ^li-ci^verer, Fouger's Dry Gulch, is surely^one of the most peculiar gold-yielding dry^ravines that has come under my observation.^It i- nothing but a narrow gully, having con-^riderahle fall, and it contains no wash gravel.^The goM is of a pure, smooth aspect near the^junction of this dry with Norwegian Gulch,^.a: i- roiagh and uxydised towards the head,^and it found in the black vegetable mould^which covers the rim rock, from seven to ten^Feed It is very coarse, and sells at $22 50^mm ounce in currency. Some large nuggets^^-^ trying from $60 to $93 have been taken out.^This gulch ia but a few feet over 1,000 in^lei -'th. and two men have been working it out^to within 200 feet of the head. Owing to the^lightness of the dirt and grade of the ground,^but little work is required to ground sluice.^These two men have realized over $.T,000 since^commencing in spring. Following Norwe^^gian gulch for several niil^s I found it worked^in places, but owing to the fineness of the^gold, flatness of th^ ground and scarcity of^water, it could not b^ worked remuneratively.^In time, when labor and living become cheap,^tnd machinery is introduced to work infe^^rior placers, this will become a lively camp.

The(;rrat Iron Mountain Void licit^ot Montana
EditokPost :^The Gold Belt fo lows^the foot hills of Iron Mountain and ex^^tends from Silver Lake a distance of^fourteen miles to the head of Gold Creek,^embracing the Cable City, Georgetown,^and I'pper Flint Creek mines, contain-^ing more rich gold veins than has been^found in any other mineral region in^Montana if not the Cuited States.
SilverLake is a magnificent little^^ecli., three miles in circuit situated in^a beautiful valley, extending through^baa*, the head ot one branch of Warm^Springs Creek to a branch ot Flint Creek.^The valley is almost level; the waters^^eemingly not knowing which route to^take, sunk back on their dignity and^^ormed the Lake, on whose elegant^^ Uingled betwh many a pleasure boat^will doubtlesslv be launched when the^vast treasures of its adjacent mountains^shall have l^een developed.
Commencingat the Lake a series of^silver lodes extend to the right almost^to Cable City. Some of these ledges^proapect finely, and, will in time, be^worked. Still further on are the famous^Atlantic Cable and W. L. Thomas lodes,^with several others of less fame, but not^perhaps, less valuable. The Cable and^Thomas, in defiance of all evil surmis-^ings, will stand the test and prove im^^mensely valuable.
Onthe left side of the ridge commenc^^ing at the Lake, are a series of coarse^iron lodes ot uncertain value, but on the^hill above Georgetown, they simmer^-down to something choice. Of uuiui*^takanle value are the

Besides the^lodes described, there are numerous^others opened, some ot which will doubt^less be valuable : but without enumera^^ting them or without allowance for the^many rich veins which must eventually^be discovered in the same halt explored^region, I think I have already described^a sufficient number to establish the^claim that the Great Iron Mountain^Gold Belt is extraordiiuirily rich.
