The claims owned  by this company are the Pearl,  Klkhoiii, Running "Wolf. Rnhy  Praction, Reindeer, and Last  Chance, all crown granted. Tn  addition to the above, they'have  the Highland Chief.

Tt has  been demonstrated lhat the ledge  traversing the claims is a strong  one and well defined and is of a  uniform width.  Wherever there appears ihe  slightest development on cla  a the Perry creek country, free  jold has! been encountered. Ir  connection with this statement we  might- say, that a recent inspection of- the property by representatives of the company, has  demonstrated the fact that large  bodies of low grade ore have  been opened up with chutes and  pockets" that are very rich, and  which will bring the.average  nl tie of the ore to a point that  will enable the property to.-be  uccessfully worked and  ;6od dividends lo the owners  If is doubtful i:' so much useful  work has been done on any property in' Jfiasl or West.
