Copper Is In greater demand and worth more per pound now than
ever before. Therefore , stock In a good copper mine that IH being
energetically developed will multiply In value many times within a very
short period. Good stock miiHt have able , honest men behind It , also
abundance of ore within cnsy reach , and a power plant to Insure quick
and economical development.
THE COPPER BELT WINES COMPANY
whose property is editorially described In Leslie's Weekly of March M
possesses all these very essential features ,
STOCK GOES TO 50 GENTS APRIL 16,1907 ,
The Treasury Stock of The Copper Belt Mines Company Is now
selling at l5 ! cents a share. It will ho 50 cents on or before April 16.
Wo hesltalo to predict how high It will go when we strike the secondary -
ary enrichment zone at permanent water level.
The Copper Belt Mines Company controls over COO acres of the best
recently discovered copper lands In the U. S. , located 12 miles south of
Lusk , Wyoming , n town on the C. & N. W. Railroad. On the same
great mineral belt as the Homcstako , Sunrise , Ferrls-Hngerty , Doano-
Rambler and many other exceptionally rich properties.
Over 1,700 feet of development work ban been done. Four well
defined contact veins , one over a milo in length , show on the property.
Until recently mining was done by hand labor. A power plant has now
been Installed and work Is going on day and night with power drills
and power hoist. The Lucky Henry mine Is already over 300 feet deep
In good ore all the way. The assays show from $20 to $250 value in
copper per ton , and from $3 to $12 in gold , with some silver. The
machinery and labor has all been paid for and the company has a good
cash balance on hand ; but the property Is a big one and will require
additional capital lo fully develop and put It on a producing and divi
dend paying basis. When this occurs the dividends should pay enor
mous returns on the present low price of shares. Prices are rapidly
advancing as development proceeds.
The company is capitalized at $2,000,000 , with no preferred stocker
or bond issue. Treasury Stock 800,000 shares. Par value of shares
$1.00 , fully paid and non-assessable.
The men in charge of the property are ! President and Consulting
Engineer , Edwin Hall , a tried , competent , honest mining engineer , with
20 years of practical experience ; Consulting Geologist , Dr. Gee , E. Con-
dra , of Lincoln , Neb. , Professor of Economic Geology , University of
Nebraska ; Vice President , E. S. Averlll , Chicago , for 12 years General
Superintendent of the U. S. Express Company ; Secretary and Treas
urer , Arthur A. Taylor , of Chicago , formerly owner and manager of
Modern Cycle Company , Chicago ; Trustee , Dr. B. L. Paine , of Lincoln ,
Neb. of Miller & Paine , the large department store ; Trustee , Peter Mc-
Nicol , of Lincoln , Neb. , formerly manager of the Paine Clothing Com
pany ; Assistant Treasurer at Mines , H. C. Snyder , the leading mer
chant of Lusk , Wyoming , also Mayor of Lusk and Cashier of the Bank
Not one of these men would be connected with nor put his own
money in anything but a sound business proposition , and their charac
ter and standing nro a guarantee of the able and honest management of
the Company and Its mines.
