To be Registered under " The Companies Act, 1882." CAPITAL L 6.000 In 6,000 Shares of LI each. 3,000 shares fully paid up reserved for the promoters ; 3,000 shares to be offered to the public, payable as follows:—2s on application, 2s on allotment, the balance in calls not to exceed 2s per month. It is not expected that more than 16s per share will require to be called up. Provisional Direotobs : Captain Cameron, U.S.S. Company John Cook, Esq., U.S.S. Company Captain Easther, R.N., U.S.S. Company Thomas Moodie, Esq., Perpetual Trustees Company Captain M'Farlane, Port Chalmers Robert Neill, Esq. Bankers: Bank of New Zealand. Brokers : Andrew Hamilton, Exchange Court. Interim Sforetart: Andrew Hamilton, Exchange Court. SoLiorroßS: Macgregor and North, Dunedin and Port Chalmers. This Company is formed for the purpose of acquiring and working the claim on the Shotover River oalled the Golden Bar, which is situated about four miles below the now famous claim of Mr Sew Hoy at the Big Beach, and is about one mile and a-quarter in length, running from the Lower Shotover bridge down to the mouth of the river, where it joins the Kawarau. Thiß claim is roost conveniently Bituated. being close to the main road, so that coal and all materials can be placed on the ground at a reasonable cost. It is proposed to work the claim by a bucket dredge, similar to that at present working on the Big Beach, with such improvements as experience may suggest. The cost of the dredge, fully equipped, is estimated at about L 2.250, and gold should be obtained as soon as the dredge is at work. As soon as two-thirds of the shares are subscribed a contract will be entered into for a dredge, whioh would then be placed upon the river without delay. Nothing need be said of the immensely rich gold deposits of the well-known Shotover River, more especially about this locality. The river runs mostly through deep, rocky gorges, and for miles hi totally unfit for dredging ; but the claim now under offer is quite free from gorge. It has also a false or sandy bottom, from which the gold cin be readily scraped up by a bucket dredge. At the lowest calculation, the proposed dredge should lift 50 tons per hour. It will therefore be easily understood that the returns from such an amount of goldbearing stuff must be large. Prospcoting has i been carried on above by the Big Beach Company, and below, at the junction of the Kawarau, with highly satisfactory results. All expenses for floating and registering the Company to be paid by the Company. Applications for shares will now be received by the Company's Broker, and the Share List will close as soon as the requisite number of shares shall have been applied for. As nearly 1,000 shares have been taken up, early application is necessary to secure the balance of the 3,000 shares now offered to the public. DVERTISEMENTS intended for insertion . in the Country Edition of this Journal should be sent to the office not later than 2 p,m
