Info Title:
Dante Gold Mining Company
Good Prospective Mining Territory Controlled by The Reed Investment Co. of Colorado Springs

THE DANTE GOLD MINING COMPANY.

In the early part of the year 1901 The Reed Investment Company, of which Mr. Verner Z. Reed is president and O. H. Shoup secretary, adopted a policy of working the properties which they controlled by the leasing system.

They were among the first to inaugurate a longer time lease with a lower royalty, so that on all the properties which they control, there has been active development work carried on during the past year by lessees.

The Dante Gold Mining company own the Dante claim on Bull hill, which is surrounded by such well known mines as the Blue Bird, John A. Logan, Orphia May, Lucky Guss and others. During the past year there has been an average of over ten men a day at work upon the property. The production last year, however, was not as large as it was during the years just previous.

The main shaft is 450 feet in depth and the property is fully equipped with shaft house and machinery. The principal lessees of the property have tried to arrange with the owners of adjoining properties to drift from the bottom of one of the deep shafts into the Dante claim, at 1,000 feet in depth. So far the arrangement has not been made.

A contract has been let to Oscar Anderson to sink the new Dante shaft on Bull hill from the present depth of 120 ft. to the point where it will connect with the workings above the Trail tunnel, a distance of 150 ft.

It is estimated that there are about 5,000 tons of ore already broken in the stopes, but only occasional shipments are being made pending the completion of the shaft.
