Scarce, illustrated prospectus for the Comstock Limited company, a mining operation established under the direction of H.L. Slosson in Virginia City, Nevada, during the early 1930s. The text promises development of an unexplored area of the Comstock Lode to the north of claims owned by the Union Mining Company, using as its beginning an exploratory shaft dug by that company at the border of its properties. The interior pages print a large map of claims on the Comstock Lode, emphasizing the tangential location of the new mining area to proven developments. The text promises full and committed investment in the scheme, and touts the success of Slosson's previous success in the area. Several photographic reproductions depict the physical plant of the Comstock Limited company already in existence. We locate one potential copy of this prospectus, in the archives of the company held by the University of Nevada, Reno.
