The Company owns the Famous "Ore Hill " Property,
In Chatham Co., N.C., that has been noted as an iron prop
erty for more than a century. Ores from it were used in the
manufacture of iron during the Revolutionary war. During
the late civil war the Confederate Government, selected this
locality as the site of large iron and ordinance works, because
of tha .exceptionally High Grade of its Ores. The lack of
railroad facilities has made impossible, hitherto, the profitable
utilization of these xres on any : large scale. The locality is
now, however, made . accessible by the Cape Fear and Yadkin
Valley Railroad, which passes through the property. -
Some ox the most noted iron men in America have examined
and reported on these ores, and so far as the directors of this
Company know, there has never jbeen- an expert jreport on it
that was not highly favorable. Prof. Chas; D. Wilber, inspec
or of mines and mineral lands, formerly State Geologist of Illi
nois and mining expert for the Northern Pacific R. R., visited
Ore Hill n 1884. Extracts from his report and the opinions of
Dr. BLEmmons, formerly State Geologist of North Carolina:

delphla; S. Jk: Richards formerly Superintendent of the Joliet

The 'Manufacturer's Record," of Baltimore, having learned

The company recently employed llr. Frederick H. Smith, of
Baltimore, a noted mining engineer and nLmeralogiat, to ex

claimed, and he advised the company to build the furnaces.
Mr. Smith is a man of such eminence In hiS 'lirufesilon that It

Skooitd The acquisition of a considerable area of land

real estate values that would follow the establishment of fur

Third The inauguration of a general development and
town-building enterprise,.starting with an. tteapt to secure

resulting need for land for business and resident purposes.
