PROSPECTUS of THE HARTLEY GOLD MINING CO. (Limited), Big Hartley.

To be Registered under tho Limited Liability Companies' Act. Capital £6000, in 6000 shares of £1 each, 2000 shares offered to tho public on the following liberal terms :-Sixpence per share on allotment, and sixpence per shore in call«, at intervals of not lee« than one month.

The proprietors reserve 3000 fully paid up shares to reimburse them for the expense already incurred in pur- chasing working plant, wages, &o., to sink a shaft about 30 feet is depth.

PROVISIONAL DIRECTORS:

Mr, S. Ward, Lyddolton, Hartley  

Mr T. Burke, Yorko's Spit, Hartley

Mr. R. Evans, Hartley.

Agent in Sydney-Mr. JOSEPH SEALE, Square and Compass Hotel.

 

1 his Company is proposed to be formed to takeover a prospecting claim now being worked, and four men's ground immediately adjoining, known as No. 1 North.

In the prospecting claim a shaft is being sunk right through the reef, which is well defined. Already it has reached a depth of 32 feet. In tho course of sinking the bait several specimen« have been obtained, which makes it almost a certainty that on reaching tho true lead rich gold will be obtained.

 

Tho proprietors are five practical and experienced miner«, who have been at work now about five weeks, and who are to continue the sinking of the shaft at a merely nominal cost. From the proximity of the reef to the River Lett, only about 100 yards distant, to the main road about 300 yards, and to Mount Victoria Railway Station about six miles dlíbint, it will at once be seen that the expense of machinery will be very light, while there is sufficient water power to obviate the use of steam.

Tho reef has been inspected by several practical miners, and others well acquainted with quartz mining, all of whom are strongly impressed with the belief that rich gold will be struck.

The small amount of capital required, and the fact that the proprietors ask for no money remunuration for tho plant and work already done, will be a sufficient guarantee that this is a bona fide speculation, and one among the many now afloat likely to prove beneficial to the investors.

 

 While the absence of all expense in tho operations of the Company, except labour and material, it is hoped will obviate the necessity of calling up more than is id per share, thus put- ting it in the power of investors, at a merely nominal cost, (o participate m the benefits it is believed will result from the working of the reef.

The application list for shores will be open until WEDNESDAY, the 24th instant, after which the Direotors will proceed to allot the shares, and take the necessary »tops for tho formation of tbo Company, due notice of which will bo given to the shareholders.

The following is an extract from minutes of public meeting held in Court-house, Hartley, on 17th instant, G. H. Rowley, EFq., P.M., in the chair.
