iT 9 *
Goldfleld is the most wonderful mining camp in the world;
millions have been produced in the past eleven months and
millions more will come out of the ground in the months to come.
The eyes of the investors and mining men of the universe are
on Goldfield, and the time to enter and share in the virgin
wealth of her undug millions IS NOW. We are in direct touch
with a new company just organized to develop and put on a
dividend basis a splendid property situated In the heart of the
richest portion of this splendid fl^eld. Every surface indication
is in favor of our property — the pay or mineral zone extends on
every side, with profitably working claims as neighbors.
Upon the best obtainable evidence it will be found that
Goldfield will produce within its first year over $8,000,000, and
this with the fact in mind that companies were slow In beginning
Now is the time to take advantage of an opportunity that
will without a doubt lead on to a fortune. But it means a
prompt acceptance of a waiting proposition. In the search for
gold the man with a small sum stands as great a chance as the
capitalist in acquiring an independence. We know that our
property, surrounded as it Is with paying mines that are ship-
ping ore running almost a thousand dollars to the ton, that we
will have a paying property. At least our offer is worthy of
tierious investigation — a matter that will cost you but a stamp
a.nd a moment of time. Surely this is something you can afford,
and when our literature reaches you you can can then have
ti;me to most thoroughly investigate our offer. If after the close
study which you give the matter you find it does not appeal
to you you havo lost little. If we convince you that it Is a
•worthy investment and you join us in the formation of tho
company and the stock goes on moving upward in price, as
Mount Whitney has done, you have soon doubled and multiplied
your original sum. The present price of IV2 cents a share will
surely not last long, but it will give you plenty of time to got in
at this figure if you act with business like promptness.
Among the claims adjoining our property are the following:
THE VERNAL, which has opened a 00 foot shaft and pro-
duces shipping ore of $500 a sack, and is accumulating a splen-
did dump of lesser value.
BLACK BUTTE is sacking $500 ore and operating two shafts
with sensational values.
DIAMOND FIELD — Sacking ore at $3 a pound and splendid
ledge being opened.
GOLDFIELD GREAT BEND— Ore on this property assays
$660 a ton. It will be a great producer.
QUARTZITE FRACTION— An 8 inch streak opened running
$10,600 a ton. Another ledge openod 32 feet in width at $70 a ton.
We ask you conservatively can you find a proposition on
the market, today that promises better returns than that of
mmmg — and if It be mining, can you find a field that shows gold
in greater magnitude than GOLDFIELD?
Investigate our proposition — It Is all we ask and that should
be easily granted. We know what we have and are willing to

It Is true that In some respects the proposition has been exag-
gerated, but on the whole the camp's descriptions are mainly
true. When the camp was first discovered it was a question
whether tho ledges would continue in permanency. . It is now
believed that ore lies not only on the surface but continues to a
great depth, as many of the properties havo been entered as
deeply as 350 feet and have found ore of great value and per-
manency. It Is now just twelve months since the first strike was
made. Probably there are at this time about twenty properties
that aro profitable producers, but week after week new ones are
added to the list. Prospecting is principally conducted by

trenching along the surface to find the veins or by panning the
surface dirt In tho vicinity of the outcropping. This has been
done in some of the cases. In many strikes free gold has been
found and even nuggets of large size, and In some instances the
surface Is being gathered up and sacked, so rich is the soil. Rich
ledges are being found every week.
The extent of the producing territory, th© numerous rich
strikes and wonderful richness of the ores are beyond conception
of those that have not visited this wonderful district.
The rich discoveries come, not from ono given piece of
property, but from every corner of the camp. Tho Tonopah
Club, Quartzlte, Jumbo and the Combination represent different
extremes of the camp, which demonstrate positively that the
camp is not a one-mine camp.
That the ore is not merely surface deposits is shown by the
vast bodies of ore opened up to a depth of 300 feet. It would
seem that now was a great time to get in on some one of the
many new propositions at ground floor prices, as tho stocks of
the meritorious ones are bound to become as valuable or more
so than that of the now famous Tonopah Camp.
Stockholders In the pioneer companies that opened up Gold-
field to the light of the world have all made money, and the
shares of these companies are continuously advancing In price,
notwithstanding the fact that they have seldom changed hands.
This history, we are aware, reads like a fairy tale or a ro-
mance of some fabled El Dorado or Ophir, but nevertheless the
statements are not overdrawn and are fully sustained by the
geological conditions of the camp and the accomplishments of
the men who have developed and are developing their own prop-
In GOLDFIELD the poor man has as great an opportunity as
the capitalist, and many of the profitable mines began showing
value at the surface, requiring but conscientious work to de-
velop Into profitable mines, and many of the richest mines of the
new district have been discovered and are owned by prospectors.
The capitalists are only able to break Into the field through
their ability to get In on a bonanza by reason of their capital.
It is believed that the future of GOLDFIELD will prove even
greater than its past. It.' is only a question of time when every
foot of ground In the district will be prospected, and it will be
very strange if new strikes are not discovered that will prove
as profitable as some of the mines which are already world re-
