MINING NEWS OF ALL NEVADA STATE
The North Star of Bullfrog on Wednesday of this week with the long tunnel cut into the big vein for which it was advanced. The last shots disclosed a magnificent wall standing almost vertical but dipping slightly eastward on the bottom. The vein matter is a fine grain and is partly decomposed quartz that pans a regular streak. This in the upper level was six feet wide and the managers and miners are firmly convinced that it will be very much wider at this greatly increased depth. At fifty feet depth the vein gave returns as high as $118.
