The following disinterested report on the property owned by the Rich Oulrh Wonder Mining Com
pany was mRde by telegraph to T. B. Rickey, President of the State Bank and Trust Company of Carson,
Tonopah, Ooldfleld and Manhattan, Nevada, on March 30, 1907, by Wallace MacUregor, the bank's consult
ing engineer: ,
"Have examined Rich Gulch Group. It has one of the widest ledges In the district, trace
able the length of one claim and Into a second. A very promising property and worthy of extensive
development. Group is five claims and a fraction. Adjoins Colorados where rich ore found.
Here Is a detailed report of the property by Edward Hoffman, the consulting engineer and mlna
manager of the Rich Gulch Wonder Mining Company:
WONDER. Nevada, April 4, 1907.
To the President and Directors Rich Gulch Wonder Mining Company,
Gentlemen: I have examined the Rich Gulch mining property, and beg to submit the follow-.
The property Is located In the Wondor Mining District, Churchill County, Nevada. The fol
lowing mining claims are embraced in the roup: Rich Gulch, Golden Fleece, Porcupine, Good Hope
and Butterfly. There are about 95 acres in all. This property is one of the best located in the dls
' trlct, being in the center of the mineral zone.
The property carries two strong Quart leads. The main vein can be traced 3,000 feet
through the Golden Fleece, Rich Gulcn nnd Porcupine claims.
A shaft on the Golden Fleece claim, just commenced. Is eight feet deep and has a good show
ing. The ore here carries gold and sil.-e. values of from $8.00 to $22.00 per ton.
There are other openings on the vein on the Rich Gulch and Porcupine claims from which As
says have been taken that give returns cf fiom $7.50 to $404.00.
The main vein as revealed on the surface and In shallow surface cuts varies in viAih from
four to twenty feet for the entire dlstaute of 3,000 feet through the property.
This vein unquestionably is one of the strongest In the Wonder Mining District.
The sti'ike of the vein Is northwest 6U'l southeast, similar to the Btrlke in the vein on tha
Sp!der and Wasp and the Nevada Woii-lc, th-? other iwo important properties of the dls.'mt.
There has also been opened 'n oi the Rich Gulch property, striking east and wast, a qua z
vein which crosses the Rich Gulch and Good Hope claims. Surface essays on this vein give averdo
returns of $21.00 per ton.
I have examined the properties which neighbor the Rich Gulch, and find that the Golden Won
der, adjoining the Rich Gulch on the southeast, Iiub opened up the same vein and is In ore on the sur
face that assays $200.00 per ton.
On the Colorado group, adjoining the Rich Gulch property on the northwest, there has been
opened up a continuation of the Rich Gulch vein, and shipping ore has been disclosed in four places.
The Bllly-the-Kid group to the north, owned by the Ruby Wondor Mining Company, has sev
eral openings from which they are sacking ore that assays from $200.00 to $600.00 per ton.
The proved width and length of the main ledge, on the Rich Gulch group would stamp the
property as worthy of the highest development, were the assays only half as flattering as those al
ready obtained. Taking the width and length of the ledge. In conjunction with the splendid assays ob
tained, showing the presence of large bodies of both milling and shipping ore, I do not hesitate to
say that the proporty owned by the Rich Gulch Wonder Mining Company compares at thla time with
any mining property in the Wonder Mining District, barring the Nevada Wonder and the Spider and
Wasp alone, which are in a much more forward state of development.
Acting under Instructions I have engaged a force of twelve miners, and have commenced the
development of the property. Respectfully submitted,
(Signed) EDWARD HOFFMAN, E. M.
