The Ruby is one of the most famous of the tertiary mines in Sierra County. 24pp. Rear civer detached, but present. Inserted descriptive leaflet, "This property is located on the well known Blue Lead, in Sierra County, California. It is immediately North of the Bald Mountain claim, which was opened in the year 1872, and has since yielded from the workings of say 3,000 feet of channel, $1,510,809.33, gross, and dividends, being at the rate of $500 gross, and $220 net for each linear channel worked.. ..the Blue Lead passes through the Ruby Ground for its entire length. By fall of 1849 the miners working Hangtown Creek had discovered a stratum of ancient river gravel laying exposed on both sides of Spanish Hill which separates Hangtown and Weber creeks. They observed a distinctive blue color to these gravels which they soon discovered paid well, especially where the Blue Lead rested on bedrock. Much more information of Blue Leads and the area are included."
