Interim Secretary : Andrew Hamilton, Exchange Court. Solicitors: Macgregor and North, Dunedin and Port Chalmers. This Company is formed for the purpose of acquiring acd working the claim on the Shotover River called the Golden Bar, which is situated about four miles below »lip now famous chim of Mr Sew Hoy a* the Pig Beach, and is about one mile and a-quarter in length, running from the Lower Shotover bridge down to the mouth of the rvcr, where it joins the K> warau. This claim is roost conveniently situated being close to the main roatf, so that coal and all materials can bi placed on tho 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 Bhould be obtained as soon as the dredge is at work. As soon aB two-thirds of ths sliares are sub3cribed a contract will be entered into for a dredge, which would then be placed upon the river without delay. Nothing need be slid of the immensely rich gold deposits cf the well-known Shotover River, more especially about this locality. The river runs mostly through deep, rooky gorges, and for miles is totally unfit for dredging ; but the claim now raider offer is quite free from gorge. It has also a false or sindy bottom, from which the gold cm be readily scraped up by a bucket dredge. At the lowest calculation, ttio 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. Prosnccting has been carried on above by the Big Beach Company, and below, at the junction of the Kawarau, with highly satisfactory result*. All expenses for floating and rrgist'ring the Company to be paid by the Company. Applications for shares will now bo received by tho Company's Broker, and the Share List will close as soon as the requisite number of shares shall have been applied for. Aa nearly 1,000 shares have been taken up, early application is necessary to secure the balance of the 3,000 shares now offer©! to tho public,
