DISTRICT OF WONDERS.
So Sajra Nevada Mining Han, SpeaS 4. in* of Goldfield. 4. J. Nelson f( Mountain City, a promising district of Elko county, made an investigation of the Goldfield district as the representative of a number of prominent mining men and had the fol lowing to sny in an interview published in the Keno Journal: "The possibilities of tlint country are siinplv wonderful. The new discoveries have'in no way been overdrawn. They are misunderstood, in a measure but have not been overestimated. "The idea that it is a rich man's coun try exclusively is also erroneous. It is a’i>oor man's district, fdo" not mean the extremely poor, but the man with limited capital. The opportunities for men with a few hundred dollars down there'are abundant. The gold ts at the grass roots. They are simply sweeping the surface and finding pay ditt in ti e to; >il. This loose du-t yi< Id- fuOO to $1000 to the ton. There is no telling what will lie found when extensive pros pecting is done. And the claims are not all taken. It is true that a widi scope of country is staked off, hut it i* more than probable that the best dis coveries remain yet to lie made. "It is in this that opportunilies are offered to the poor man or the man with small means. If he has enough to g" pr specting, he is likely to find some thing that will pay and pay well. When you find that the mere sweepings of the surface of the earth pay as they do there, you may realize how easy it. is to treat the ore. “It cannot he sfdd that there are a halfdozen mines in the district yet. They are mere prospects, and when it is considered that they have made such wonderful yields, then it is easy to con clude that the possibilities are unlimited for the district. The population is rap idly increasing and will continue until it will he one of the biggest mining camps in the world. "There are not many sales, compara tively speaking. The property owners are not inclined to selliu the first place and in many instances they could not sell if they’wonld. A large portion i f the property is'under'lease and men do not] like to buy unless they'can* get im mediate possession, but there is no wildcat busines-i'going on down there. The sliarper who li,» been in the habit at other'places of getting options on mining property on tick and tying it up for long terms fails in the Goldtielu country. When you get to talking about huying'options down there, you are’immediately"asked to put up and put up"]qitiekly. They will not even wait the delay of the mails. They l'e quire the would-be jmiviiasei u> wires anil get the inoni v ijuiek. Ami they wont think of leS' than $1000 as a starter. 1 hey do not ih> tics because they are afraid of their property not panning out right, hut because they know it is good'and they don’t have to take any'cliances. No, sir, the^man who expects to speculate on wind, will he wonderfully„disappointcd. “I do not think there is anything overdone^ there, unless it he in the num ber of common laborers w ho have gone there prematurely. Men should not take any chances in'going there broke. Later on, when'the’general development stage is reached, it will be alright f >r this class, but until then it will be w» 11 for men to go prepared to pay their way. “There is one thing that is overdone, however, and that is stock-selling. Ev ery kind of stock is on the market and much of it has no foundation to it. The brokers besiege one with flowery stories as they do in all new mining camps, and of course a great nu uber get caught. It may all be good in time, hut the tinu ia ho far distant that investors will get poor results on tin get-riuh-ijuiek the ory. “Matty of the leases on property w ill not. expire for at least a year. The av- ] erage lease is made on the royalty plan, the lessee paying from twenty-two and one-half to twenty-five per cent of tin gross earnings of the mine. When these leases expire there will be a greatei number of sales and greater develop-1 liient will also follow. “I shall recommend to my people that the district is all right and we ' ill prob ably go to Goldfield within a week or so and we will begin operations at once. You may say that the possibilitit s of that country are wonderful and by no means overdrawn.” LOCAL NEWS NUGGETS. Buy a lot in Goldfield! ’N.iff said! * .'udge J. K.
