ROSP E C ' OF THE GOLDEN BAR DREDGING COMPANY (SHOTOVER MOUTH), LIMITED. To be Registered under "Tho Companies Act, 1882." CAPITAL L 6.000 In 6,000 Shares of LI each. 3.000 shares fully paid up reserved for the promotors ; 3,000 Bhares to be offered to the public, payable as follows:—2s on application, 2s on a'lotment, the balance in calls not to exceed 2s per month. It is not expected that more than 16s per share will require to he called up. Provisional Directors : Captain Cameron, U.S.S. Company John Cook, Esq., U.S.S. Company Captain Fasther, R.N , U.S.S. Company Thomas Moodie, Esq., Perpetual Trustees Company Captain M'Far'ane, Port Chalmers Robert Neil!, Esq. , Bankers; Bank of New Zealand. Brokers : Andrew Hamilton, Exchange Court. Interim Secretary: Andrew Hamilton, Exchange Court. Solicitors; Macgregor and North, Dunedin and Port Chalmers. This Company is formed for the purpose of acquiring and working the claim on the Shotover River called 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 aquarter in length, running from the Lower Shotover bridge down to the mouth of the river, where it joins the KawaTau. This claim is most conveniently situated, being close to the main roacl, so that ooal and all materials can bs placed on the ground at a reasonable cost. It ia proposed to work the claim by a bucket drudge, si milar to that at present working on the Big Beach, with such improvements as experience may Buzgf st. The cost of the dredge, ful'y cquipp d. is estimated at about L 2.250, and gold should be obtained as soou as the dredge is at work. As soon as two-thirds of the shares are subscribed a rontract will bo entered into for a dredge, which would then he placed upon the river without delay. Nothing need be said of tho 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 is totally unfit for dredging ; but the claim now under offer is quite free from gorge. It has also a false or simly bottom, from which ihe gold cin be readily scraped up by a bucket dredge. At the lowest calculation, the proposed dredge tliould lift 50 tons per hour. It will therefore be easily understood that the returns from such an amount of goldbeaiing stuff must be large. Prospecting has heen 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 Oompany to be paid by the Company. Applications for shares will now be received by the Company's Broker, and the Sbare List will olose as soon as the requitite 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 cffeiej to the public. AUCTIONS. WEDNESDAY, 31st JULY, 1889, At 1 o'clock. C.
