Various mishaps have attended the use of the bailer in lowering the water; at one time the guides in the shaft were torn up for several hundred feet, necessitating repairs. It is doubtful whether the size of the pump and water-column is sufficiently great to undertake the draining of the Battle Mtn. properties, as suggested, through the Gold Coin shaft.
