Golden Age Mine: 0050.0250

STRUCK FINE ORE – Contractor Reid’s Men Uncovered Ten Inches of Solid Galena in a Shallow Cut.

            The Golden Age, one of the Imperial group, near the head of Lake Moyie, shows a vein of 10 inches solid galena at a depth of seven or eight feet.  It was opened by Contractor Reid’s men on the right of way of the C.N.P.R., while making a cut across the claim named.  The property belongs to Henry Melder, G.W. Pearson and other residents of Idaho.  The former have been doing development work on the Imperial for the group.

            The property bids fair to become a valuable one, and with a moderate amount of development would be able to ship considerable ore.  No assays have been made, but the cleanness of the ore will surely give it a shipping value on the completion of the road to the lake.
