With a capital stock of $500,000, three members of the Patrick family incorporated their company in Wyoming and went public at a dollar a share. This booklet reports that they own controlling interest in Goldfield Mascot Mining Co. and Red Fox Bullfrog Mining Co. as well as interests in Yankee Girl Gold Mining Co., etc. Their operations in Nevada were growing. "Mr. Patrick was the first to recognize the possibilities of the Goldfield district, going there when there were less than a dozen people in the camp; now the population is about 10,000, and thre are from seventy-five to one hundred arrivals daily." Testimonial letters and company promises follow in detail, along iwth extended discussion of railroad facilities, the safety of mining investments, &c., &c. At this writing in 2017, Goldfield and Bullfrong are ghost towns.
