Thomas Ewing brought in from

(inexpert miners and has put them to
work on tho properties now being
operated by himself and associates in
the San Francisco mining district. He
is working two hoisting plants on the
Virgin and Victor mines and also two
hoists on the old Hardy properties. In
these properties are interested C. D.
Lane, the rich California mininir man.
The mines are being opened up in the

they will soon be nmong the producers
of that section.
What is said to be one of the greatest
discoveries ever made in this county
is reported from Burro Creek, where a

$S000 on the
properties at Troy.
Wm. Mill Williams, the Globe mining
man, who is developing some promising
properties on the summit, about thirty-two

The Arizona Pacific company,at Camp
Woolley, has installed a steam plant,
consisting of two 60-horse power boilers
with oil burners, a power hoist,
a compresseor, Leyner drills and an
electric light plant ; also sinking and
station pumps. As soon as the shaft is
unwatercd sinking will be resumed.
James Rowles, mill man in charge of
the Bob Tail mill for the Big Lead Mining
& Smelting company, is successfully
reducing the ores of that company.
The mill is turning out from S00 to 1000
pounds of concentrates per day which
carry 33 per cent copper. The ore being
treated averages 2 J per cent copper,
and the tailings assay but one-half of 1
The Bisbee gentlemen who are developing
a property adj'oining the old Jack
Rabbit mine, in the Casa Grande dis
trict, have uncovered some very large
gold-bearing ore bodies and recently
made a mill test of the ore at the Turn
ing Point mill. They put through about
80 tons, from which they got a car of
gold bullion valued at over ?1000, and
still left a value of $8 per ton in the
tailings. This was certainly a very flattering
result and will probably lead to
the installation of a milling plant, by
the Bisbee people, at the mine.
John C. Loss, a pioneer of the territory,
and a successful mining man, has
just returned from tho cast, where he
closed a deal for the property of the
Crown Consolidated company, located
about ten miles south of Casa Grande,
and which formerly was owned by Mr.
Loss. The property is equipped with a
20-stamp quartz mill, a 50-ton silver and
lead smelter and a 50-ton copper furnace,
with air compressor, machine drills, etc.
We are told it is the purpose of Mr.
Loss and his associates to operate a general
custom plant in addition to treating
their own ores.

nets him $140 per ton over all expenses.

From tho Clifton Kra.
The Morenci Leader reports that
parties are now washing out gold in
Gold Gulch, near that place, and mak
ing from $10 to $20 per day each. During
the first few years after the discovery
of this section, much placer
gold was taken from Gold Gulch,
Gulch, Chase creek, the San Francisco
river and gulches tributary thereto.
It is a fact not generally known to
mining men that the Clifton-Morenci
district was first known for its gold
production, but as tho rich copper
mines came into prominence tho gold
was lost sight of, and finally forgotten
except by a few old timers. It is passing
strange that people hunting for
gold mines will not believe that they
can be found in this district.

On the payroll of the Copper Queen
company here and at Bisbee there are
the names of more than 2000 employes,
most of them white men, and none
drawing less than $2.50 per day and the
great bulk of them getting from $3 to
$5 per day.
On a'single shift at the Copper Queen
smelter 300 bars of copper are turned
out. This is considered an ordinary run.
As each bar is supposed to weigh 370
pounds, the product of an eight-hour
shift is 100,000 pounds of blister copper.
This is a pretty good showing for
eight hours work.
A stranger, on Saturday, picked up a
piece of quartz on G avenne which was
literally sprinkled with free gold. The
specimen was as big as a quart cup and
there was at least $15 worth of gold in
it. Ten dollars was offered for the
specimen and refused. This piece of
quartz was'probably hauled in from the
hills with street or building material. It
onlyrindicates that there are some good
mining prospects within sight of the
The structural work on the extension
of the reduction plant at the Copper
Queen smelter is going up rapidly. The
material is now practically all on the
ground and the iron piers and girders
are being swung into position from day
to day by skilled workers in that line.
The reduction plant will be almost ns
long again as it is now when completed,
and there will be room for twelve converter
stands as against six in use. The
Copper Queen smelter will be one of
the largest, if not the largest, smelter
in the world when all of its extensive
improvements and betterments now under
way are completed.

Active operations arc resuming at
Pearce. A. Y. Smith nnd associates
have taken the Commonwealth property
under lease and 100 men will soon
be at work mining and milling the ore
from that celebrated property. Pearce,
like Bisbee, is a long time coming to
the front, but it will get there finally.
The Monmonier property is a bonanza
on the surface, while the Little Jesse,
the Gold CHIT and Six Mile Hill will attract
attention, being meritorious mining

A matter of considerable interest is
that of the proceedings against the
Black Diamond Mining company. Present
indications are that the company
will be spared the ordeal of being
thrown into bankruptcy. Tho petition
creditors have been paid off in part,
and have withdrawn their petition.
Only one claim, that of N. O. Bagge,
who was formerly manager of the company,
is pending. It is more than probable
that Mr. Bagge will accept bonds
for his claims against the company,
and when the matter is called up a dismissal
will be had. A meeting of the
stockholders and directors of the company
is to be held in West Virginia the
middle of the present month, when it is
expected that something definite will
be learned in regard to plans for the
future. The general impression here is
that an early resumption of work may
be looked for. There is no doubt that
with proper management the property
can be made a payer.
Growing Importance of the Mining Industry.
From tho I'rcicolt Journal-Miner.
Superintendent J. A. Konley, who
was in the city from the Bannie property,
states that an important strike of
ore has been made there in the shaft.
He now has a force of men at work,
who are developing the lead. The Bannie
recently passed into tho hands of
eastern people, who are bent on extensive
The Congress Mines company's cyanide
plant is treating about 135 tons of
ore daily, the ore corning mainly from
No. 5 shaft and from the 1975 foot east
and west levels. The shaft from that
point to the 2050 foot level is said to bo
in good grade milling ore. This ore is
a shoot hitherto undiscovered in the
mine. A level is being run at the 2059
foot point. Professor M. Goodloe is the
general superintendent. Sam Gunn is
the mine foreman.
The Oro Consolidated Mining company,
which is operating on a group of
claims in the west side of Kirkland
valley, expects to be in a mineral formation
inside of the next thirty days
that will j'ustify the purchase and immediate
erection of a ten-stamp mill on
its property. O. P. Hopkins, president
and general manager stated that important
strikes of ore have recently
been made at the bottom of a 180-foot
shaft. Short drifts have been run to
each side with the same results. The
Oro will sink its main shaft to a depth
of 300 feet, then drift on the ledge.
At Wickenburg tho Oro Grande
Mines company is keeping its ten-stamp
mill in operation and the savings are
said to be satisfactory. The White
Gold Mining company is erecting a
twenty-stamp mill. The Black Rock
Mining company is completing a plant
of sixty ton capacity; the equipment in
the mill including crushing Lrplls, A
cyanide department is also being added.
Fred H. Perkins is the manager. The
Electra Mining & Milling company is
also arranging to resume work, as is
the Interior Mining and Trust company

some talk of the early extension of a
branch railroad from Wickenburg to
