Rich Gulch Vein Unquestionably One of the Strongest in Nevada
The following disinterested report on the property owned by the Rich Gulch Wonder Mining Com
pany was made by telegraph to T. B. Rickey, President of the State Bank and Trust Company of CaMon,
Tonopah, Ooldfleld and Manhattan, Nevada, on March 30, 1907, by Wallace MacQregor, the bank's consult
"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 mine
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 Wonder Mining District, Churchill County, Nevada. The fol
lowing mining claims are embraced In the group: 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 dis
trict, being In the center of the mineral rone.
The property carries two strong quarts 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, jiint commenced, Is eight feet deep and has a good show
ing. The ore here carries gold and istl.-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 surftce and In shallow surface cuts varies in width from
four to twenty feet for the entire dlstauce of 8,000 feet through the property.
The strike of the vein Is northwest an'l southeast, similar to the strike In the vein on the
Spider and Wasp and the Nevada Wonder, the other i wo important properties of the dlsrnt.
There has also been opened on the Men Gulch property, striking east and wast, a quarts
vein which crosses the Rich Gulch and Good Hope claims. Surface assays on this vein give average
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, has opened up the same vein and Is In one 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 Billy-the-Kid group to the north, owned by the Ruby Wondeir 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 property owned by the Rich Gulch Wonder Mining Company compares at this time with
any mining property In the Wonder 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.
