On the "Big Ledge' is a 10-foot

pyrites. This vein has been opened

and 11-10 ozs. silver, and $411.35 gold,
174 o''*9- silver, 2 per cent, copper.
The "O. B," has two distinct veins;
one 25 feet wide which, from its strike
and general character would seem to
lie the same vein as that,on the Big
Ledge, all hough sufficient has not
lieen done to make this conclusive.
Tlle second vein has al. present a
width of nearly three feel, Assays
have shown values iu gold from $4.00
to $170,511, while a conservative sampling by Mr. 8. S. Fowler, M, E. gave
$20.00 in gold.
On the"S. H, B." are two converging veins of copper and iron pyrites,
on which work is now being done, An
average assay gave, gold $1.50, silver
10J ozs., copper 11.00 per cent., or
$40,44 for all values.
The "Fred I)." was located in December, 18115, more as ground for a
