1901 Haile Gold Mine Letter
C-I Web Extra: a close-up of a 1901 letter from Haile Gold Mine.
Dr. Blanding wrote “This gold mine is on the land of Mrs. Kirkley on the east side of Big Lynches Creek-two miles from the Brewer Gold Mine. In 1830 some gold was found in a branch which in a short distance passes into Big L.[ynches] C.[reek]. Soon after this discovery it was found on a sand hill nearby.
