1.99 1909 Lucky Jim Mine advertisement


Lucky Jim Mine

In the November 7, 1909 Victoria Daily Colonist, a bold title on a full page announced "GOLD TELLURIDES" above text that appeared to be a story about the Luck Jim Mine at "Granite Bay, Valdes Island."  It was, in fact, a shout-out for investors to participate in a scheme that was, based on records of the mine's subsequent production of gold, naively optimistic if not outright deceptive.
