They are situated in the N.W. 1/4, N.E. 1/4, Sec. 36, Town. 29, Range 4, about one and a half miles south-westerly from Emminence, the county seat of Shannon County. The deposits were first opened and operated upon by Jos. Slater, who took out and shipped about 1500 tons of the ores to Swansea Wales for treatment. The ores consisted chiefly of Copper Glance, with small amounts of Azurite, Malachite and Cuprite"--page 2.
