Seeking the Mother Lode

The Mohawk of Greenwater is a name that local mining men are using when they speak of a series of gigantic Andesite dykes that have a beginning in the two Gold Crown claims belonging to the Schwab mine and extending in a southeasterly direction. These dykes cut through the Red Boy claims, the Saratoga claims and the property of the Greenwater Copper Mining Company. Across a flat two miles wide these great dykes relppear again on the property of thq Greenwater Consolidated, owned by the Schwab interests.

In the flat between these Andesite dykes is lying what is believed to be the treasure chest of the Funeral range. Here diamond drills have been set to work by the Greenwater Brokerage Company, and the search for the Mohawk of Greenwater has been commenced. Local mining men, men who know the copper deposits in the Funeral range like a book, have taken an interest in this search for the mother lode. That there is such a lode of copper ore in the Funeral range is the firm belief of every prospector, and from indication it would appear that these Andesite dykes mark the course which it follows. If this be so the proper place to look for It is in this flat, and if it exists the men who are now looking for it will be sure to disclose it. They have nerve, they have capital and they employ brains in the use of both.
