Telephone No. 592.G. L. RickardNOTE—The map on page 24 shows principle workings on and surrounding the famous Mohawk No. 2 claim of the Mohawk mine at Goldfield, Nevada. Most of these leases are equipped with high power electric and gasoline hoists and several with air compressors and power drills. The mines are electric lighted, running day and night and the Goldfield & Tonopah Railroad has built spurs to the works of those shipping so that the ore is dumped directly from the buckets into railroad ears.CAPT. JOHN A. HASSELLCLOSELY identified with the progress of Goldfield during the last two years is the name of Captain John A. Hassell of New York, the owner of the Reliance group of claims—the Reliance, Lincoln, Rose, Piute, Independence and Alvarado.Captain Hassell's sphere of activity stretches over the greater part of Nevada. Besides his interests in Goldfield he is heavily interested in many of the smaller camps of the State, among them being Bullfrog, Ramsey and the Deer Creek copper district in Humboldt County. He is heavily interested in the Ramsey Red Mountain Company, recently incorporated at Ramsey with a number of Goldfield's most prominent men as its officers and members of its board of directors.Captain Hassell is president of the Bullfrog Annex Mining Company, and president of the Nelson Consolidated Copper Company of Humboldt County. Eastern capital has of late been strongly attracted by the great possibilities of this region, and it is predicted that before long it will be a strong rival of Ely. Experts who have examined the Nelson mine declare that its enormous deposits of high-grade copper ore will make it one of the richest copper mines in the country.The progressive Easterner first attracted notice in the Goldfield District as the organizer of a company to develop the celebrated St. Ives mine. He was the first president of the St. Ives Company.His interests in Goldfield at present are confined to two leases, one on the Dick Bland Fraction of the Jumbo Extension Mining Company and the other on the property of the Velvet Mining Company. Associated with him in the leasing of these two properties is Arthur H. Warner, a young mining engineer of New York. Mr. Warner graduated from the Columbia School of Mines in 1905.
