Prospectus 4 Promotion OF THE Silver King Or up of fcs, BY Silver King Mining and ?m ting Company. Mines located in Lincoln Co. Nevada. , Such is the heading of a pamphlet received at this office, and as it con tains much information (?) about how to find mines and the manner in which they are traced, that is en tirely new to the average miner, we publish it. The prospectus was written by an Eastern Mining Ex pert who experted the Silver King Group of mines last year. He starts off as follows: We will now give a little history as to how these and other mines are found and located. You first look for float. Float is weather beaten particles broken off the ledges that have gradually worked their way down the mountain,8ometiines as far as the base, and as soon as you have located the vein, as best as you can by float, then you take up the trace. The trace is the gold that has been washed out of the ledges and flout, then you takes bits of soil as far out as you think the (gold) traoe runs and then you go down the moun tains and pan it out and of course you pan each and every one separ ately to find out how wide thetrace is (A gold pan is as large around as a small diuhpau; but not over one fourth as deep, made if steel.) Then put these bits of soil separately in the pan and by a swinging motiou of the water tney separate the soil from the gold. The soil is gradually washed over the edge of the pan. The next time you go higher the traoe grows more nurrowj and the higher you go the more narrow the traces are and when it gets four or five feet wide you are liable to get above it, and when you do of course you will not get any gold so you will know you are close to the lodge and you will go to digging. Forty colors is a good trace. ,.. Tlie soil runs from no soil at all to ten feet deep. The Rocky Moun taies have no soil at all. Prospectors have to prospect by drilling and but this is Nevada mining. So you hunt and you dig until you find your ledge and then you will have to do $15.00 worth of work that is dig a shaft ten feet deep and show up walls and ledge bearing gold, silver, or any metal that will pay. This ore lies between these walls. The walls are of a different kind of rock on either side the ledge. The mine I owned nn interest in, in Jackson county, Oregon, the walls were porphyry and slate and just so with all mines, they have all kinds of walls. The walls have lots to do with a mine. Some kinds of rock are much better than others, (lime porphyry is the best formation known to miners. ) When you get your shaft dug and show up ledge and walls then you tack up your notice stating the min ing district and name your claim (I took one up in Oregon and called it the Illinois, but it was no good), and measure off to the beat of your ability 1500 feet long by 600 feet wide that constitutes about twenty acres and stakes are so many feet so and so, and when you get it all staked out then you go to the county seat and get it recorded which will cost you a dollar that holds your claim for one year. In Nevada mines are personal property. A vein of ore never stands perpendicular, it pitches to the North, East, South or West. Some times they lie in a blanket form and again, they are in chimneys, and de posits no ledge at all. It is very easy to locate a claim, but the more difficult question is to find one that is worth looating. You go out in the mountains to hunt a mine you will soon learn why gold and silver are precious metals. There are lots of old forty-niners in the west but never have made their fortunes yet. Before I left Oregon and that was in ninety-nine, there was a forty-niner prospecting and he happened along Hornbrook. Cal, that was just the other side of the Sesque Mountains from where I was located, and he went into an old prospect tunnel and thought he saw a prospect of a mine. So he looked up the owner and made arrangements and bonded it and started to work at the end of two weeks he was taken out $1000 rock that is $1000. At the end of two weeks more he was taking out $1500 rook, and wkeu I left he was ship ping a hundred pound brick every weeK. But tlitv all do notstrikn t hn i cause thtre are others still prospect ing. There ere considerable difference between a miner and aorosneotor. A prospector is a eooA deal of a (Won. uve in practical minerology, watch ing every bit of float.deciding where it cu trie from, noting country, rock formatiou, etc. A miner gives a good account of himself in timber ing or getting out ore safely and cheaply but notes little till ho gets j. 1 uuuer ground. Here follows a description of the mines, which is omitted on account oi us lengtn. tie continues as fol lows: I will now give an estimate of the product and expenses in operating a fifty ton nlunt for one dnv: 50 tons produce 1500 oz silver at 60 cents per oz f 900. 50 ton of ore will produce 10 ton ot lead worth at Salt Lake city $G7. per ton 670. 50 tons produce gold 50. Total $1620. EXPENSES, Mining and developing at furnace 50 ton at $3.50 per ton $175. 10 ton of coke or charcoal $17, per ton 170. 6 men at furnace at $3.60 per day 21. 2 engineers, at $4. per day 8. 4 men to handle ores and furn ace $3, per day 12. Hauling ten tons of bullion rail road, $6, per ton 60. Railroad freight to Salt Lake City, 10 ton at $6 per ton 60. Coutigent expenses 50. Total Expenses $551. Net profit for one duy $1064. These estimates are made on the bases oi our present rail road facilities which require 60 miles of wiigon transportation when the railroad reucheB Pioche or Bristol it will cut down our wagon transpor- ution to such a degree on coke and bullion that our profits will increase very materially. In making my es timates I huve been very conservative and tried to be under in place of over marks. I am sure our silver product will be above my estimate perhaps a hundred per cent or more as the Sheller mine has pro duced some very rich ore and no doubt will do so again. Mention this prosposition to your friends, we feel sure you will ap preciete these pages not so much for what we say and our manner of say ing it but for the more practical rea son that there is an open door through which you may become a share owner in one of the largest and richest mines that have ever been offered in this or any other state. We cannot advance our in terest without advancing yours. We do not have to prospect we have what they are all looking for but as I said before no capital to work it and you might just as well get on the ground floor and go along with us to success. There is more easy quicker, surer money in this pro position than your farm lands and if you will go along with me you will be convinced. If you will stop, read, and consider what this little pamphlet will do for you, you can stay at home and put your mite to working and as soon as the working facilities are put up these mines in Lincoln county Nevada, will make every stock you own worth one hun dred cents on the dollar. You would not get this opportunity if the owners had the necessary means to put up the machinery but as it is you have a chance to make money at our expense. Figure the profit for one year. Figure the profits for five years. Where will you ever get the same opportunity to invest your money that will ever bring you in suoh re turns again? Do not say this is too good to be true. You can buy or make arrange ments for stock at our office in the First National Bank of Bushnell, 111 at ten cents per share. Any where you see these pamphlets it will be arranged with some bank in the city for you to buy stock, We are only going to sell two hundred thousand shares and when that is gone it is all gone. You will not have a chance to buy any more stook in Silver King Mining Co. After we sell the required amount of stock then we will organize and incorporate, elect officers, change our receipts for stock certificates with one million and a half capital stock, and make arrangements to pay the necessary expenses of two ex perienced men to go to Nevada and look over the Silver King mines and make reports to the Stock holders and if those men do not find it just, good or bet tei than I have renre A seuted it then all moneys and con tracts will be revert back to the stock holders. All moneys and contracts will be deposited at lirst National bank, of uusnnell. Ill subject to draft when the Silver King Mining Co. has lormed an incorporation, elected officers, issue the stock certificates and all necessary business has been performed by the stock holders will impower the company to draw the Silver Kins Mining and Smeltinff Co. deposits for the development of the mines in Lincoln county, Nev da. f" No wonder the Eastern people have a crude idea of the mining in dustry of the West, when an article like the above is written by an Eastern Mining Expert.
