NEWSPAPER NOTICES FROM "THE CLEBURNE NEW ERA" for MAY 1896

NEWSPAPER Issue of Thursday, May 7, 1896

THE RICHEST FIND YET

There has recently been discovered on the lands of J.J. Boman in Goose Neck Valley, about one and one half miles northwest of the Arbacoochee gold minies, the most extensive vein of gold that has yet been discovered.

The vein has shown a width of 30 feet in widest place and 3 feet in narrowest place, it's depth is not yet known.

It is estimated that a twenty stamp mill and a chlorination plant of equal capacity can be kept running almost an unlimited time. Strange to say that this rich deposit has lain in plain view for a long period of years without being discovered. It was through the efforts of Col. R.E. Merrill that the discovery was made, he has long believed in the existance of this mine and with his large experience in connection with the mining interests of this county, does not believe he has been anything equal to it.
