be determined and the competency and honesty of those in its control ascertained. The natural conditions are such that the Company is warranted in saying that the present project rests upon a basis as secure as that of any other industrial enterprise. This claim is susceptible of proof. Investigating investors

PANNING GOLD IN GEORGIA will be given every opportunity and accommodation by those in charge at the mines to test the truth and statements contained in the foregoing pages.

Knowing that many questions arise in the minds of intelligent investors, and that all pertaining to this project from the earliest conception to the present time should be interesting.

Note, viz [videlicet]: That this property has been handed down from father to son for over three generations, and that one of the present owners is nearly 80 years of age; he is an experienced miner, having made three trips to California during the great gold excitement of '49 [1849], returning home convinced that he had in his Georgia mine a better thing. He has worked his Georgia property ever since in a small primitive way, more with a view of ascertaining its great possibilities than the extraction of its riches. Notwithstanding, in this manner he has made himself comparatively a rich man, and it was not until within two years that he finally yielded to the importunities of his children, either to mine by modern methods, involving the expenditure of a large amount of money, or sell. His absolute faith is further most practically proven from the fact that he has retained an interest in the Company, as well as a directorship.


This Company desires additional capital to open up its great placer, build one or more dredge boats to operate in the river belonging to the Company, to erect a 50-stamp mill with suitable appliances for treating the ores, install pumping plants and construct reservoirs.
