Pinholes. 4" x 8.75" From a mining lawsuit in 1895 filed by James Cain et. al, the following information about this mine could be found: mine was located on May 19, 1877; incorporated August 31st, 1878; and that in 1895, Cain and Alexander McCone (whose father built the first foundry on the Comstock Lode) filed suit claiming the company had abandoned the mine before filing for a new patent and that Cain et. al were owners of the ground where the claim had been relocated and thus owners of the mining company title. Other references to the mine can be found in EMJ 1879: "The south drift on the 460 level of the Addenda has not yet been ascertained to its extent and character...Silver greatly predominates in the ore" (July 5, 1879) and that "the general appearance of the mine is good" with re-timbering work being done on the south drift (Aug 9, 1879).
