For some time there lias been a
movement on foot by the Hradshaw
Mountain Copper Mining and
company, which has large mining
interests at Mlddloton, to purchase
the Val Verde smelter for the purpose
of reducing the ores of tho company

deal has finally been consummated and
the Hradshaw Mountain Copper
and Smelting company will take
'barge of the smelter some time next

to keep tho smelter busy twenty-four

with this property. The Review
learned last night that a deal was
about to be consummated whereby a
group of Douglas capitalists wore to
assume control of the property. An
oiler had beon made looking to this
end, and Mr. Prltchard, who had
to return home last evening,
will remain over in the smelter city
for another day. Review.
Jules Baumann is in town from Uie
Baumann Copper company where he
has a force of men at work developing
that pioperty. He says that during
the past few weeks development work
has been most gratifying as he has encountered
some jromarkably ,rloh ore
in the Swiss Girl, Arizona, Baby, and
Laura claims. He has taken out a lot
samples for exhibition at the St. Louis
exposition, which are ory fine. It
will be remembered thatsamples from
these claims weroja warded a diploma
and medal,'at the Chicago exposition.
Excitement runs high at Gold Road,
Mohave county, over the numerous
rich strikes of leasers on the Billy
Bryan, one of the company mines.
While ore runs up into the thousands
the average Is said to be, by miners
coming in from there, $1000 a ton.
Een the saloon keepers are closing or
selling their fountains of youth and
Joining the leasers. Jim Garter has
disposed of his plaoe to J. N. Cohenour
who left this morning to tako charge.
Such wonderful ore in quantity was
never before seen In this county.
Many leasers will make their stake
while the Gold Road company reaps a
golden harvest. Oar Mineral Woalth.
The Prescott Journal-Miner Is Informs:!
of an important gold discovery
In tae Welcome mining property,
about Ave miles from Martinez,
ha'rvay bstween Congress and Octave.
A smalt stringer of rich ore was followed
until it grew much stronger
and yielded several tons of line ore. A
tunnel wa9 then run to tap the vein at
greater depth and when the ledge was
intersected it proved to be wonderfully
rich. Wells H. Bates, tho Journal-Miner's
informant, says he panned
out some of the ore that went as high
as $1.50 to the ounce. The vein was
encountered at a d.'pth of about eighty
feet from the surface and the minors
are njw upraising. Ths width of the
vain in some placos is nearly two feet.
The installation of a large custom
reduction plaut in this valley is no
longer a question of doubt. The site
for such a plant was selected and purchased
this week by Mr. W. 8. Fletcher,
a prominent citizen and capitalist of
Pasadena, California. The necessary
machinery has been contracted for
and as soon as it can be completed and
delivered on the ground the work of
assembling it will be begun. The
Phoenix & Eastern track Is now within
three miles of the smelter site and
will have reached the latter by the time
tho machinery is ready for delivery.
The primary purpose of the plant, of
CQurse, is to treat the ores of the
Golden Quiver group, of Mineral Hill
district, this connty, and a large gold
group, situated in Mohave county,
both of which are owned by Mr.
Fletcher But the initial plant will
have sulllolent capacity to handle custom
ore in addition to the output of
the Fletcher mines. Florence Blade.
The Blsbee correspondent of the
Mining World writes : "Improvements
extraordinary are in progress
at nearly all of the shafts of the Copper
Queen company ; the old dump at
the Spray shaft is being rcgraded to
make room for more modorn buildings
and to furnish inoro dumping ground.
At the Holbrook sliaft of the same
company massive bins are being erected,
the intention of the company being
to make this shaft more the center
of their various workings than it
has been heretofore. It is but a short
time since the shaft at this mine was
enlarged from a three to a four compartment
alTalr to facllltaM the hand
ling of the large amount of ore that
has been hoisted there. Centrally situated,
the Holbrook is easily the most
convenient spot for general shipping
and handling of mine necessaries.
Corrugated iron buildings are fast replacing
the old wooden structures that
have seen service for nearly a score of
years, and the sawmill at this shaft,
when completed, will be the best
equipped in the camp."
The Chloride Arrow says that work
on tho old mining property at Planet,
in Mohaye county, Is being enforced
In good earnest, and the prospecting
of the ground south of the old surface
cropping Is receiving the greatest attention.
In the early '60s this mine,
now belonging to the Planet Copper
Mining company, was largely worked
and produced Immensely rich returns
for its owners at that time. Then
came a pinching of ore in the veins
ARIZONA. SILVER BELT, JANUARY 28, 1904.
that had Just before been so large and
rich, but work went on for some time
but finally all work was stopped and
the mine and its surface equipments
were praotloaMy left to their falc for
many years. Later on it was again
taken hold of with no other view than
the finding of the lost ore vein, and It
now sec ms thatthe present company
is ncarlng a frnltltlon of its hopes and
will reap a rich profit for their indefatigable
efforts In the face of so
many despairing efforts. Two of the
drifts being cut under the hill are In
iron and copper of a big paying value
and the company is making additional
improvements with a long tenure of
work before them.
The new strike on Apache creek is
in the extreme north end of the
district, says the Copper Era.
The lead upon which the strike was
made Is near the line of New Mexico
and Arizona, with a strike northwest
and southeast. About half of the
claims located on the lead are in Arizona,
and the other halt in Grant
county, New Mexico. The locators
sunk a shaft 12 feet. They found the
vein matter 7 feet wide, all of which
will pay well, 4 feet of which will average
more than f 100. Tho lowest assay
they have yet had was $45,and the
best average $135. The entire vein
matter seems to be pretty evenly impregnated
with gold.all of which pans
well. A string of gold two or three
inches long can be had from a small
piece of ore. The lead, as It Is traced
by the occasional outcropping, in running
directly for the Jim Crow mine,
a mile or so west of the old Carlisle
mines. All of the country between
the strike and the Jim Crow mine has
been located, but as tho vein does not
crop out on the surface, It Is jet too
soon to determine whose location covers
the valuable lead. The lead Is covered
by a capping of from 8 to 12 feet
thick except at an occasional outcropping.
On some parts of tho claims already
located prospectors In years past
went through the capping and then
abandonod the work before finding the
lead, which a little more energy
wonld have uncovered.
DEER CREEK COAL FIELDS
Their Development and Building of
Railroad Promises Cheap Fuel
Mr. M. It. Campbell, of the United
States geological survey, has been
making a preliminary examination of
the Deer creek coal fields of Pinal
This field Is of comparatively small
extent, and the coal beds are thin, but
they may have considerable economic
importance, as the field lies within
easy reach of the great copper camps
of Arizona, the development of which
depends In a large measure upon the
supply of a moderately cheap fuel.
The importance of this inquiry may
be appreciated from the fact that wood
Is difficult to obtain at prices which
range from $8 to $11 a cord, that coal
of average quality retails from ?G to
$15 a ton, and that coke for the copper
smelters cost from $12 to f50 a ton depending
upon the distance from tho
main lines of transportation. These
facta give to the Deer creek coal fields
a positive prospective value greatly
beyond what It would have were it
located in Colorado or near the great
coal fields of the eastern states.
The Republican says tbo Deer creek
coal field lies about 85 miles northeast
of Tucson and just east of the junction
of the San Pedro and Gila rivers. The
field has at present no railroad connection
with the outstde world, but when
tho line that Is now building up the
Gila river above Florence is completed,
it will be in reach of most of the largo
towns and of the great copper producing
centers of the region.
The field has an approximate length
of 10 miles and a known breadth of 5
or C miles, with the possibility that
the coal may be present farther to the
southwest than Is now known, making
the breadth equal to the length of the
GREAT GOLD STRIKE
LOCATED NEAR DOUGLAS
A press dispatch from Douglas, Arizona,
says: One of the greatest gold
strikes ever made In tills section has
been reported at the Santa Rosa district
about fourteen miles from Douglas.
The property is gold and is immensely
rich, and when the property
was examined it was found to be a
ledge of about six feet, having fifteen
inches pay streak.
It is wire gold and runs thousands
of dollars free gold.
The country is everywhere
and Is attracting great attention.
There are many people coming in and
going out to this camp.
It is believed that this will be one of
the greatest mining districts of tho
