Fianacier and Chief Stakeholder in the Apperson Mine
A lawyer turned geologist, George Hearst has made and lost his fortunes in the rushes and busts of the mining industry. Having sunk the majority of his funds into a stake of the the Comstock load George was nearly ruined when the mines were destroyed by the great quakes. Having built back up his resources, George has turned his attention to smaller mines further away from the troubled lands farther west.
Attended by his bodyguard Captain Turner, George’s current interest lie in a piece of land just north of SilverCreek rumored to be a second major silver vein that could lead to a resurgence of the town to its former glory days.
