ED DISTRICT BEING REVIVED
Something About an Old District South of Yerineton Which is Being Revived by New Company. One of the latest incorporations and one destined to become prominent and add its hundreds of thousands of dollars to the output of Esmeralda and Ivyon counties, is the Nevada Mammoth Gold Mining Company. Its property consists of 26 full mining claims, each and every one of which is practically free milling. One claim was worked back in the ’60s, and has a record of over $1,000,000, ex tracted by the crude methods then in vogue, and yet the main shaft on the claim is less than 350 feet deep. No water was reached at that depth. The old track and car, as well as the cable and old horse whim are still there in tact, while the old ten-stamp mill down on the Walker River, two miles from the mine, where the ore was treated, is still standing there, but in a dilapidated condition, with the two old fashioned mortars bursted, which was the principal cause of operations ceasing. A large portion of the work was done by leasing, and there are many old holes along this claim from which ore was taken to a depth of 20 to 30 feet and milled. The openings still show the vein intact with good milling ore in sight. It is astonishing that this prop erty should have lain idle for 40 vears. Three or four years ago the Davis broth ers bought this claim, and from time to time have found and located others, un til now there are 26 in the group, and not one of them but what has pay ore in sight. All have openings on them from 10 feet to 1/5 feet. Some of the veins range from 12 inches to 2 feet and sev eral of them from 4 to 25 feet in width. One of the newly located veins is known as the Pioneer. The width of this vein is not, as yet known. An open cut has been run across it for 24 feet, but the hanging wall is not yet in sight. The face of the cut is 15 feet. This, among other veins, was recently examined and | sampled by Owen Roberts, a Cripple Creek mining man of experience. He took a general sample along the entire cut of about 50 samples. This was all mortared up after lie returned to Yering ton. quartered, mixed and requarted until the necessary sample was obtained, and bv him sent together with other samples from other veins of the group. The large vein gave returns of 4 68-100 j oz. gold, \alue, $93.60. A like sample from a vein near bv gave 3 oz... gold value, $60. A like sample from three other veins of the group, made by Mr. Wood, Yerington assayer, last week, gave returns as follows: No. 1, 22 20 100 oz. gold, value, $442; silver, 4 40-100 oz., value, $2.86; No. 2, 6 40-100 oz. gold, value, $128; silver, 3 40-100 oz., $2.21; No. 3, 1 82-100 oz. gold, value, $36.40; silver, 90 cents. A sample of the concentrates from all the veins in j this group were classed into three dis- j i tinct classes, according to the supposed ! richness of the veins, and the same were submitted for assay to Mr. Wood, of ! Yerington. Here is the reading of his certificate: No. 1, silver, 37 40-100 oz.., i gold, 22 40-100 oz.; total value, gold and j silver, $474 18; No. 2, 7 12-100 oz. sil | ver; gold, 81-100 oz ; total, $21.23; No. ! 3, 2 10-100 oz. silver; gold, 60-100 oz.; total, $13.47. i The only thing required to commence taking out money is to build a mill. There is sufficient ore in sight, not in cluding the big vein, to run stamps con tinuously without doing any dead work. To illustrate this proposition, one of the claims, known as the Uncle Sam, has a shaft 173 feet. This vein carries some lead. The ore from this shaft was milled, lead and everything and yielded on the plates 526 per ton, The vein is about 26 inches wide. A short drift is run each way from the bottom, and in these drifts it is no hard matter to select free j?old specimens. All this ore is in tact and ready to be taken down for the mill. This is only one of a dozen where the ore is exposed from 12 inches to 4 feet ready to be taken out. All the indi cations are that the big vein alone will yield enough ore in developing to run 40 stamps,. The company is incorporated for 1,000, 000 shares, $1 each par value; 300,000 shares treasury stock. The incorporators are the owners—George and E. W. Davis-—with S. H. Raker, and F. H. Meyer and Z. F. Rawson. all of Yering ton. To the right parties who will build a mill a liberal arrangement will be made. The company invites an inspec tion of the property by any seeking an investment and feel assured to see it, is to take hold of it. The Pioneer vein alone is sufficient to make a company rich in dividends. The property is situ ated two miles from the river w'itli a good road. The ground is 28 miles from Yerington and near the Rockland mine, close to Pine Grove, and the Wilson and Wheeler mines. A good house of five rooms is on the property, a car, track, cable and horse whim. Parties who would like to see or know more of this property can correspond with Baker and Miller, Yerington, where the principal office of the company is kept. Doing Business Again. “When my friends thought I was about to take leave of this world, on account of indigestion, nervousness and general de bility,” writes A. A. Chisholm, Tread well, N. Y., “and when it looked as if there was no hope left, I was pursuaded to try Electric Bitters, and I rejoice to say that they are curing me. I am now doing business as of old, and am still gaining daily.” Best tonic medicine on earth. Guaranteed at G. I. Leavitt & Son’s drug store Price, 50c. DEATH OF JOHN GILLOON John Gilloon, an old resident of Mason Valley, died at the home of his niece, Mrs. Tessie Davidson, of Etna Mills, Cal., on the 8th of this month. Mr. Gilloon was a native of Iowa, aged 63 years and a few months. He had been engaged in prospecting and mining in this vicinity for some years before leav ing for Etna mills, some three months | ago. He had been in poor health for some time before leaving here and thought that a change to California would benefit him. He was buried in the Odd Fellows cemetery at Old Etna on the 9th inst. Nearly every person who s subject to attacks from the stomach suffers from a morbid dread of a dietetic treatment for relief, that is three-fourths starvation, and one-fourth toast and milk. On the other hand you can eat as you please and digest the food by the aid of a good di gestant, thus giving the tired stomach equally as much rest.

The frosts of the early part of the week damaged the pear, plum and apple blossoms considerably in parts of this valley. GOPPERFIELD LOOKING WELL Otto Taubert and August Taubert were arrivals here this week from the new camp of Copperfield. They were among the first to locate in the new district and secured some of the best prospects there and are exhibiting some wonderfully high grade copper ore taken from the claims. They also report much activity in the new district. They have six men working on their Big Mitt property and are getting very encouraging results. Four men are also employed on their Copperfield Copper Co. claims with equally good results. Malcolm McDon ald has twenty men employed in devel opment w’ork on the original strike in the district. Senator Oldie has sixteen men working on his claims,. Major Stan ton has eighteen men opening up his property, and Nixon and Wingfield, who bought the Copper Hills property recently, are establishing a camp and getting ready for development work. Col. Posey also has men at work on some prospects recently discovered about eight miles south of Copperfield. The town of Copperfield is growing as rapidly as the scarcity of lumber will allow it to. LIKE THE DISTRICT K. M. Simpson, F. A. Mizner and Mr. Trayner, Goldfield mining men, were arrivals here the first of the week in a big desert automobile. They came by way of Hawthorne and down the Fast Walker road, taking in considerable mining country on their trip. They vis ited the big copper properties of the dis trict and expressed themselves well pleased with what they saw, in fact they were surprised at the extent and rich ness of the district. Mr. Simpson has a property in view here already, which he intends to take hold of in the near fu ture, and this trip will not be his last one to the district by any means.
