The mining property of the Jacksonville Milling & Mining Co., one mile west of Jacksonville, has been purchased by James McChatka and R.H. Bailey of Grants Pass, Ore., who will commence immediate operation of the site.

The property was well known in the early mining days of Jacksonville, as it is the ledge from which the famous Rowden pocket was taken, which yielded over $60,000. On top of the ridge near the same property a pocket known as the Johnson pocket was also taken out, and is reported to have yielded $30,000.

The property is located near the same mountain as the well-known Opp mine, on which stands a 20-stamp mill and cyanide plant, but this plant is not in operation, although it is reported that plans are in progress for starting up again in the near future.
