Jamestown, Tuolumne County, PO 4 miles southwest of Sonora, situated on the stage road from Stockton, and in the midst of a section once distinguished for the richness of its placers. It is now much decayed and although possessing mineral and agricultural resources of a high order, a change in the systems of the past in both tenure of property and mode of operations is required to develop them and establish a permanent prosperity.

The Mammoth Quartz Lode runs near the town, regarded as the great mother vein of the State, and supposed to be very rich. Table Mountain, a singular formation of lava, overlying deep beds of auriferous gravel, is near Jamestown, and into it are now running several prospecting tunnels whose success will add greatly to the prosperity of the place, and revivify business.
