      General notes:
      Map is quite nice in the fact that it shows a couple of structures. The Discovery Shaft is almost at the south edge of the claim, with a Shaft House and Drifts marked, in addition to a Cabin northeast of the shaft house. But, that is also all that is shown, in addition to the two other claims which is part of same Survey Number - the St. Joseph and the Phoenix lodes.
      graphic for visual presentation of text There is a note in Red Ink talking about the lines in north on the claim maps where there been conflict with another claim named George C. lode, which seems to have had some effect, but which I can't tell from this map what it meant for this claim.
      graphic for visual presentation of text Location on the claim map fits the known location of the Bolivar mine from my 1902 topographic map, so I would be very much surprises if I later learn it is not the same mine... Not found any Sanborn fire Insurance map or even a photo, all I have is that article from the Morning Times newspaper.
