There has been a slight reaction in prices during the past few weeks, which is accounted for by reason of the holidays and the heavy snows throughout certain parts of Nevada which has largely hampered work as well as isolated outside camps. Telegraph wires have in many instances been down.

The company also owns a lease on two blocks of ground owned by the Florence Mining Company. This lease is equipped with whim hoist and has its shaft now down to a depth of 135 feet. An 18-inch vein has been encountered in the bottom of the shaft that gives an average value of $12.00, with rich stringers on the hanging wall that runs as high as $130 per ton. The rich sulfides which carries the high values that have made Goldfield famous, may be broken into on any round of shots. High grade ore is being produced from several leases which practically sur-
