The tract is on Wilkins Creek, and
adjoins the property of Carolina Pow

sin. Operations ceased, not because
of the lack of minerals, but because
of the roads, and expensive costs of
getting the mineral ore out.
Mr. Sharpe pointed out that the
ore would have to be hauled to Lake
Junaluska, and there loaded on cars.
The hauling will be most expensive,
he said, and there is six miles of the
road which needs repair httdly, he
pointed out. He also said that the
county commissioners had agreed to
co-operate in getting the work on the
When Mr. Hill bought the property
many years ago, he sunk a shaft JU
feet deep, and then a tunnel, some
eighty feet long to the bottom of the
shaft. The shaft and tunnel will be
re-opened before long, under the su
pervision of Carter Bryson, mineral
engineer, of Canton.
Samples of the ore have proven
that the mineral deposits are worth
at least $50 a ton, and are rich in

When asked about the koalin de
posits in that action, Mr. Sha pe
said- "We have all the metals theie
that" we can say grace over, and our
operations, and plans are to go after
the metals and leave the rest alone.
The possibility of a smelter on the
site, or even in the county is still
'remote, although it is the opinion
of Mr. Sharpe that one would pay

A group of men are now at work on
the Redmond property adjoining tne
tract just leased by Mr. Sharpe. The
men are doing research work and re
claiming some of e shafts used
years ago. ,
The territory is quite rough in the
section where the minerals are, and
right now roads are a problem con
fronting the group.
Under a WPA project, men are al
lowed by the agency to work on lands
that show indications of becoming
mining centers, and work the prop
erty up to the point where it can be
determined whether it will be profit
able to continue or cease operations.

Coming on the heels of the Fines
Creek mining announcement, comes
the report from Luther Cogburn, of
Cruso, that five men will spend
three days a week opening new shafts,
and renewing their prospecting ef
forts on his 100-acre farm at Cruso.
Mr. Cogburn reports that at least
E5 shafts have been sunk on his
property, and that he is well pleased
with the mineral deposits found there.
In some shafts, he has extracted
mineral ore, and when a blow torch
was applied, malted silver ran
out. ' ,'
