Child’s Mine (Jarrett Property) — Here’s what Yeates had to say about this property
Latitude: N34.70843° (NAD83 datum) Longitude: W83.69712° Elevation: 1551 ft MSL County: White County, Georgia
Here’s what Yeates had to say about this property:
“This property is more generally known as the “Childs Mine.” It lies to the southwest of lot 10, on lot 24, 3rd district, White County. Mr. Childs of Athens, GA, operated here, for some time; but, for the past even or eight years, no work of any duration has been done.
What has been already stated, in regard to the natural features of the Lumsden property, hold true here. The geological formation is the same. The gold-bearing material, worked upon, is but a continuation of the quartz “stringer” auriferious zone, now being operated by the Lumsden People, a quarter of a mile to the northeast. The excavated material was sluiced some distance, through a long line or riffle-boxes, to a twenty-stamp mill, where the coarse and hard material was finally worked up. This work covered a considerable period of time, and an immense amount of auriferious matter was thus treated. About eight years ago, Mr. Childs ceased work. We are not able to give an estimate of his profits, as we have only rumor to guide us, and this is variable.
