Good Reports from the Mining District
Immensely Rich Ore Discovered on Lease of One of the Kennedy Mining Claims.
Good reports continue to come from Buckskin, the high-grade gold camp almost within a stone's throw of the Yerington copper district.
Bob Ward, Will Champaigne and William McCormick are among those of the Carson valley who are most heavily interested. They have
taken a lease on one of the Kennedy mines, and a recent assay from this property gives values of $375 to the ton. A well-defined
ledge with a face measure of nine feet has been encountered with promising indications of increasing width and values.
Already the owners have 100 tons of high-grade ore in sight.
A prominent mining man fro Eldorado county, California, and a brother of Robert Ward, will superintend the working of the property, and
upon his arrival extensive operations will be commenced.
People coming from Buckskin have brought with them confirmation of the reported rich strikes. On the Jack Bell lease almost fabulous values
have been struck and in formations which indicate permanency. Similarly on all the Kennedy properties. In a word, the Buckskin district
comprises a vast mountain of richly mineralized ground.
