Wednesday, Aug. 28. 1901 THE SUMPTER MINER MORMON BASIN MINES The Great Free Gold District of Eastern Oregon. Mormon Basin Is situated about 20 miles northeast from Huntington, and on an air line about 36 miles southeast of Sumpter, Oregon; is accessible at all times of the year, and at an altitude of 4800 feet above sea level. The district is about six miles wide by fifteen miles long. The formation is a schistose slate, porphry, and here and there inter- spersed with dykes and quartcite and lime. Every gulch has in times gone by been a bonanza placer mine, all the gold and wash were local, and why this country has received no attention from practical quart miners is an inexpli cable conundrum to the writer, though I must confess that the lazy or horse back prospector has no business here, as the veins are of a soft nature and generally covered with surface. How ever, if once familiar with the field, claims and good claims, too, are easily found, and the district, without exag gera...
