LAST WEEK'S editorial entitled
"Present and Future Producers" actually
named 82 mining properties in thedistrict, j awai h\g exploit lion
aside entirely from the Premier, Outsider,
Indian and Dunwell, which in reality
bring the total up to 86, a total that no
mining cair.p in the world need be ashamed of. But when it is realized that this
number is barely ten per cent of the prop-
small area,   measuring roughly 58 miles
long by 15 miles at its widest point.
In brief, the situation is approximately
this:
The most spectacular gold and silver
mine in the world, Premier.
The Outsider, Indian and Dunwell, soon
to be producers of large quantities of gokl,
silver, copper and lead.
Twenty-four properties  on which  the
past year's work has warranted increased j
development  during the coming season.
This number will without doubt be greatly
increased before the year is out,
Fifty-eight properties which, added to
the above, would make barely ten per cent
ofthe total number located, and only a
very small portion of those whereon the
showings warrant investigation.
Fifty-eight properties, on which more or
less work has been done, and whereon the
showings warrant investigation!

The Sunset is located on Roun
