Wild Horse Gold: 0050.0448



EAST KOOTENAY – From the Prospector.

            Considerable hydraulic work is being done on the Wild Horse placers this year.  One of the Chinese companies will make a clean-up in about a month.




            Felix Cock will shortly commence work on his claims at Chinatown on the Wild Horse.  The claims are known as the Black Diamond and Armor Plate.  The Black Diamond is a galena property carrying gold and copper.  The Armor Plate is gold quartz carrying excellent values.
