"This property covers the valley of the Rio Acandi Seco, in the district of Acandi, Intendencia (Territory) of Choco, Republic of Columbia, South America.
It consists of four claims, or pertenencias, each straddling and paralleling the course of the Acandi Seco River. Each claim is two kilometers in width, one kilometer on each side of the stream bed, and five kilometers in length, making an area two kilometers (1 1/4 miles) in width by 20 kilometers (12 1/2 miles) in length, containing about 10,000 acres, the conversion being only approximate. These four claims are shown on the attached map as La Balboa, La Balboa No. 1, La Balboa No. 2 and La Balboa No. 3.
The mining rights covered are the placer rights, lode mines being subject to separate filings by the discoverers. Thus far, no lode mines have been discovered or filed on, and there are now no owners of adverse surface rights on the Balboa property"--Property, page 1.
