Canada Gold. The Rainy River District, Ontario. Ideal Mining District, in which American Money is Doing Great Work

Watertown, NY.

4 pp on a single folded sheet, 8.5 x 11 inches when folded. Undated, but reprints an article from The American Mining News, August, 1901. Old creases from folding, staple holes at upper corner, all else very good. Dunbar, a broker, appeals to Americans for investment in this Canadian mining region, because “Canadians, besides lacking the mining experience, are too slow to take advantage of the golden opportunities which are being grasped by the more venturesome Americans.” The Rainy River District, he says “possess advantages over almost every other gold mining country in the world,” due to easily worked ores and ready access to fuel, water, transportation, and labor. There was apparently something to these claims, as the area is seeing a resurgence in commercial mining activity today. Not found in OCLC.
