Comments

Comment (Production): ABOUT 15 LONG TONS OF DEVELOPMENT ORE HAD BEEN MINED BY SEPT. 1918, BUT NONE HAD BEEN SHIPPED. IT WAS ESTIMATED THE DEPOSIT SHOULD YIELD 100 TO 200 LONG TONS OF ORE BUT NO SHIPMENTS HAVE BEEN RECORDED AND IT IS POSSIBLE THE ORE MAY STILL REMAIN ON THE PROPERTY.

Comment (Workings): TWO ADITS, ONE 18 AND THE OTHER 20 FT. LONG.

Comment (Deposit): DEPOSIT APPEARED TO BE A SINGLE ORE BODY DIPPING ABOUT 60 DEG. E. ORE ABOUT 2 FT. WIDE WAS EXPOSED IN THE BACKS AND FLOORS OF BOTH ADITS FOR THEIR ENTIRE LENGTH. PROPERTY LEASED FROM SWEDISH-AMERICAN BANK.
