Physical Description of the Dis-.
i-arge Showing of Ore Mills and
Smelters on the Way Carbonate
In my laBl I promised TnECrnzEx
wluW endeavor to say something ofj
tlie developments made in this section
of the district. The district is new;
no reduction works have started up,
hence there hag been but little en
couragement for the prospector to
develop his mines. But now that the
railroad has been completed to Tuc
son, nnd freights reduced so that ma
chinery may be brought in at a com-
paratively cheap rate, every thing is
changed; capital Is seeking invest,
mentinour mines; life and activity
hive been inspired; two thirty ton
smelters are on the way for the Hoi
land, and a twenty-siamp mill for the
Alta. Other companies have invested
in mines here, and as soon as sufficient
development has been made to war
rant it, more smelters and more mills
will be ordered. Indeed, when the
district gets fairly under way there is
no telling how many mills and smelt
ere will be needed for there seems to
be no end to the enormous deposits of
ore. 1 have never before been in a
mining district where there were so
man large lodes which so uniformly
vield ore. Both Washington and Car-!
bonate hills seem to be vast deposits
of ore; dig where you may, and it
seems almost impossible to go amiss.
know of several instances in this
camp, where the ground has ueen lo
cat ed because it was vacant, and not

two lodes, which intersect each other
at right angle, all others seem to start
from or intersect; and yet the lateral
braoches (if I may be allowed the ex
pression) seem to be as prolific in the
precious metal, as the mother lodes,
and some of them even stronger, in
both metal and vein matter.

Washington towards the valley of th':

hills fall lower and lower down to the
crraced mesa below, and then the
rich bottom lands of the ueautiiui
Santa Cruz. To the south, stretching
away into the Mexican line, lies the
Belmont basin, a beautiful plateau
dotted over with maguilicent groves
of live oak, with here and there grassy
openings, the whole presenting the ap
pearance of a grand old English park.
On the west rises up the highest peaks

lodes above referred to, nearly an
other lodes in this locality run north

mines lie on Carbonate Hill, and every
foot of the ground is taken up. The

a shaft down 12o feet, with a cross-cut
at the bottom showing thirty feet of

.Messrs. Davis & Co., of California, ar-
nred here this week for the mirnose
of opening up the mine, and work has
already been commenced. The Wasp
and Thurmond are on the Holland
The Holland is being systematically
developed. A large force of men are
now employed on the mine, the main
shaft which is intended for a working
shaft, is down fifty feet at which point
a cut is now being run, which shows
up some of the finest ore yet found
in the district. The width of the ore
body at this point is not yet known,
but was eighteen feet on the surface.
Levels will be run from this point, and
the shaft continued down.
Immediately west of the Thurmond
and Holland lies tho Chico, a very
promising lode, which as the Holland1
turns into or intersects ihe Belmont
The Chico shows a strong vein, and
the character of ore improves as depth

eight to twelve feet of ore that look
There has b;en a tunnel driven
from shaft No. 2 into the hill about
ninety feet, and a cut or winze at the
end some twenty-five feet. Why this
tunnel was driven I am at a loss t-
determine, as it passes the lode near
the cntranci', cutting twelve feet oi
ore, nnd then passing on into granite
seventy-five feet. The other prong ol
the letter X which pusses out at the
southeast corner ot the Empire show
thirty-iive feet of ore on the surface,
where the ravine cut through on the
outh end of the claim. The Mazepps,
which is a continuation of one of th.
Empire lodes lies between the Xea'l
and Pelican, considerable work has
been done on the Mazep.t, and some
fine ore is on the dump. The Silver
Bill, which is also an extension of one
of the south prongs of the Empin
lode shows up a large body of ore.
There are several cuts and two or tlnei
shafts sunk on this lode, though not to
any depth. A patent has been applied
The San Antonio has three shafts
and numerous cuts, all of which ex
pose more or less ore. Shaft No. 1 i
down 40 feet, and I believe is all in
ore; shaft No. 2 is down about 20 feet,
showing up some fine ore, ftom which,
it is said, assays have been made, tun

from $i5 to $8 in gold; shaft No. :) is

three to four feet wide.
The Grasshopper cuts across the
northwest corner of the San Antonio
ground, but in suc-h a manner that it
docs not interfere with the working-j
of the mine. The Grasshopper mine
has two separate lodes, which seem to
uuite near the center with 'lie San An.
tonio lode, which crosses the south end
of the claim. There are some ten or;
twelve openings on the Grasshopper,
scattered nil over the surface, and ev
ery one of them is in ore that assays
from $20 to $170 per ton; indeed, the

J. P. Pantlind of Harshaw camp, re
ported on Saturday last, the discovery
of the Old Vega mine. This is one of
the old mines worked by the Jesuit
Fathers some two centuries ago, and
f om which it is said fabulous amounts
of rich ore was carried from the Pata
gonia Mountains on pack animals to
Old Mexico for reduction.
The late Captain Devcrs, very well
known to many of the early sct'lers
of Tucson, employed a large numh:r
of Mexicans to hunt up the Vega
mine, but without success. This was
twenty years ago. The old mine is lo
cated on the west side of the Fata
gonia Mountains, and about two miles
west of the Old Gusjolotc mine. Mr.
Pantlind, after finding and locating
the mine returned to Harshaw for
supplies and ropes, after which he in
company with others went back to
explore the "ancient treasure house."
