This Company is projected to acquit e and work mining areas, and in parti ular a mining area of about 67 acres, being Sections 95 and j 96, Block 1., and Section 21. Block VII., Leaning Rook district, on the Clutha River, opposite Mutton Town Point, and above and immediately adjoining the ground successfully worked by Hyde and party. Mr Robert Hay, C.E., at the request of the Provisional Directors of the Clyde Dredging Company, visited the ground in March, 1895, and his report can be seen at the office of the Brokers. It is proposed to work the ground with a steam dredge with all the latest improvements, including an elevator for stacking tailings. It is estimated that coal can be delivered on the claim at about 14a 6d per ton. The Galatea, Clyde, and Kearsago spoon dredges worked on the claim in the early days, and ns bearing upon the character of the ground the following extracts from the ‘Dunstan Times ’ are of interest: Juno 6, 1869.—“ The amounts netted by the Clyde, Alabama, and Galatea dredges during the past week completely put into the shade all previous yields. The shareholders of one of the boats, after paying expenses, pocketed over £IOO per man; and the others, we hear, were equally fortunate.” February 24, 1871. “The dredges at Mutton Town Point appear to be doing fairly well—the Galatea doing exceptionally well, her last week’s return being 107oz.” March 10, 1871.—“ The dredges at Mutton Town Point have this week done ve-y well, those securing the largest quantity of the precious metal being the Galatea and Kearsage.” It is well known that the primitive spoon dredge could only win gold under the most favorable conditions. A modern steam dredge o- sufficient size and power should secure payable returns from even the worked portions of such ground as is above described. Dividends will be paid per share, irrespective of the amount paid up. Over 4,000 shares have already been applied for. . , Copies of the Prospectus can be obtained from i the Brokers. AUCTIONS.
