we were much more concerned withpersonal comfort than we were with the details of the corehole. Ken Darke was writing, and I was looking at the core,trying to make estimates of the mineral content.” To add to thedifficulty of working outdoors under such conditions, some ofthe core had come out of the ground covered with dirt andgrease, and had to be washed with gasoline before its contentscould even be guessed at. Despite all difficulties, Holyksucceeded in making an appraisal of the core that was, to saythe least, 杭州品茶夜网 startling. Over the six hundred or so feet of its finallength, he estimated, there appeared to be an average coppercontent of 1.15% and an average zinc content of 8.64%. ACanadian stockbroker with special knowledge of the miningindustry was to say later that a drill core of such 杭州高端资源微信群 length andsuch mineral content “is just beyond your wildest imagination.”
TEXAS Gulf didn’t have a surefire mine yet; there was alwaysthe possibility that the mineral vein was a long, thin one, toolimited to be commercially exploitable, and that by a fantasticchance the drill had happened to go “down dip”—that is,straight into the vein like a sword into a sheath. What wasneeded was a pattern of several drill holes, beginning atdifferent spots on the surface and entering the earth atdifferent angles, to establish the shape and limits of the deposit.
And 杭州品茶qq群 such a pattern could not be made until Texas Gulf hadtitle to the other three quarter-segments of Kidd-55. Getting titlewould take time if it were possible at all, but meanwhile, therewere several steps that the company could and did take. Thedrill rig was moved away from the site of 杭州按摩足浴网 the test hole. Cutsaplings were stuck in the ground around the hole, to restorethe appearance of the place to a semblance of its natural state.
A second test hole was drilled, as ostentatiously as possible,some distance away, at a place where a barren core wasexpected—and found. All 杭州spa论坛 of these camouflage measures, whichwere in conformity with long-established practice
among minerswho suspect that they have made a strike, were supplementedby an order from Texas Gulf’s president, Claude O. Stephens,that no one outside the actual exploration group, even withinthe 杭州男士养生会所口 company, should be told what had been found. Late inNovember, the core was shipped off, in sections, to the unionAssay Office in Salt Lake City for scientific analysis of itscontents. And meanwhile, of course, Texas Gulf began discreetlyputting out feelers for the purchase of the 杭州夜生活论坛网 rest of Kidd-55.
And meanwhile other measures, which may or may not havebeen related to the events north of Timmins, were being taken.
On November 12th, Fogarty bought three hundred shares ofTexas Gulf stock; on the 15th he added seven hundred moreshares, on November 19th five 杭州桑拿排行榜 hundred more, and onNovember 26th two hundred more. Clayton
bought twohundred on the 15th, Mollison one hundred on the same day;and Mrs. Holyk bought fifty on the 29th and one hundredmore on December 10th. But these purchases, as things turnedout, were only the harbingers of a 杭州十大红灯区 period of apparently intenseaffection for Texas
