George P. Bent of Tulunxsa, N. M
was in the city a few days ago, accompanying
a shipment of a trainloail of
ore from his mint! north of Alamogonio.
The ore is the first shipped to the Cop
per Queen smelter from that section of
New Mexico ami shows extremely high
grade values. Mr. Hunt is one of the
officers of the Tularosa Mining & Milling
company. He stated that Uoughus
far exceeded his expectations and lie
considers the Smelter City one of the
best in the entire southwest. Ho went
to Ilisbee to take a look over the big
copper camp. Douglas Dispatch.

From tho Ilonson l'rcvt.
The Vanita mine in the Yellowstone
district, will be dropping stamps sometime
during the coming week if no unforeseen
trouble crojs out. The hoist is
in running order and working satisfactorily,
and the pump will be in operation
in a day or two. There remains
but little to bo done before tho entire
plant, which is modern throughout, is
completed and put to work extracting
the values from the rich ores. The
Vanita will prove of much benefit to
Benson, as it will be the means of attracting
capital to other mines in the
district, and Benson is the natural supply
Krom tho Tombstone Prospector.
The new cyanide plant on the old
Grand Central Utilinz dump is assum
ing large proportions. Sixteen tanks
will be constructed, ten of tnem 30
feet in diameter and 7 feet high and
six 20 feet in diameter and 10 feet
deep. The dump, acconling to the
most conservative estimate, will furnish
120,000 tons of tailings. The management
gives it out that the tailings
will run not less than $o per ton. The
company expects to complete the plant
in sixty days. The enterprise will
without doubt bo eminently successful,
as the Slimes company, which has it in
charge have abundant experience and
remarkable success in this particular
class of business.
CLIFTON AND MORENCI
Items of Interest From Graham County's
Big Copper Camps
From the CUflon Herald
It is simplicity of mineral creation
that must forever give the Chase Creek
Copper company an advantage over its
mining competitors. There 13 not a
technical vein of ore in its property.
Not a fault, not a depression, not a
horse in tho formation. It has been
created on too large a scale. The great
volume and force of the mineral currents
have swept these away. Ore
comes in the Chase Creek Copper company's
mine, but never goes. The size
of thjj leads prevent it. Its slogan is
quantity and consequently permanene.
While a ton of $W ore is being mined
elsewhere, three tons of $25 per ton ore
can bo mined in Chase Creek. Concen
tration does the rest, three into one
and we have $75 per ton ore.
From tho Morenol Leader.
The outcroppings of stone coal that
were partially opened up two years ago
by two gold prospectors in the vicinity
and mining district of Morenci and
Clifton, are to bo further exploited and
developed by a company of local capitalists
and mining men. Tho samples
of coal discovered were said to bo of
an excellent quality; and at the same
time tho work is going on the company
will make investigations as to the existence
of oil in the district.
The Week's Mining News as Reported
by the Miner
From tbo Mo'myo Miner.
It is reported that a smelter site
has been selected about three-fourths
mile east of town. Tho pl.mt outlined
will be of 200 tons daily capacity and
will handle both copper and lead.
The ore in the breast of tho lower
tunnel in tho Alpha mine, at Layne
Spring is improving with every foot of
work. Tho vein has a width of about
seven feet and is showing some good
copper ore. The tnino is owned by
Foster S. Dennis, rotter Cairery and
Mrs. Mary Smith.
Dr. J. C. Hughes and I. M. George
returned from tho Bonanza group last
Sunday. The sliaft 6n tho Bonan
za has reached a depth of fifty feet
and is in very rich ore, some of it running
over 100 ounces gold to the ton.
So far development shows the group to
be one of the richest in the Union Pass
The work of crosscutting the veins
at tho 170' level of the Treasure Hill
mine is under way. Tho water is now
under control and it will be a matter of
a few weeks when some of the numerous
veins have been entered. In sinking
in one of tho old winzes last week
an eighteen inch streak of ore was
opsned up that gave values as high as
104 ounces silver. The average of the
vein was nearly one hundred ounces.
As thi3 vein will be cut at a lower
oi it s nking was discontinued.
C. D. Pickering, superintendent of
tho Yucca Cyanide M. & M. company
came up from the San Francisco mine
Thursday last and transacted considerable
business in town. He reports
that the mine, on the lower 'levels, is
showing np wonderful bodies of ore.
This ore was found in cross cutting
and is supposed to be the main vein
which was lost in the upper workings.
A fifty horse jxiwer compressor and a
number of machine drills are to be put
in at once and work on the mill rushed.
At the mill considerable bullion is being
turned out, while the big team are being
kept busy hauling concentrates to
the railroad for shipment to the smelter.
These concentrates are rich in gold
Joe Telford, a Salt Lake mining man,
has taken an option on a number of
mining claims in the Minnesota mining
district and will at once commence
operations on them. The mines are
copper and the veins are hundreds of
feet in width. Indeed so large is one
of these mines that it is a veritable
mountain of ore. Samples of the big
veins show low grade in copper, but as
the veins carry values in gold and silver
it is thought that they can bo made
to pay handsomely. The properties
have been held for a number of years
by reaidents of Utah, who have yearly
done their annual work. Kecently
Chloride people made a number of locations
in the same neighborhood and
an attempt has been made to place
them. It is probable that in the near
future that section of the Big Bend
country will become a large producer
Growing Importance of the Mining Industry.
From tho t'rekcolt Courier
E. W. Meade reports that 50 men
are employed at the Gladstone mine, :X
at the properties of the Jesse Mines
company.about a dozen at tho Dividend
and at the Leland the mill is running
steadily in McCabo district. About 200
men are working at Val Verde and the
Arizona Smelting company's sampler is
Major William DoWitt has returned
from the properties of the Rincon
Mines company, upon which he erected
the mill which is being steadily operated
and is making concentrates that
are being shipped. This property has
a shaft down 1100 feet witli numerous
drifts and crosscuts, showing plenty of
concentrating ore. The mill is of El-pass
pattern. Major DeWitt thinks
well of the mineral ossibililies of that
section of this county and believes the
Leviathan group will produce plenty of
precious metal when properly developed
The Congress mine will soon be as
big a producer as ever. Tho deepest
shaft on tho Congress is down -1000 feet
and there are several other shafts down
oOOO feet each. The ore upon which
ten stamps are now dropping steadily
is being taken from shaft No. 5, which
is down 2000 feet. Tho big hoisting engine
has been placed over this shaft.
From tho I'rosrott Journal-Miner
The past history of Tiptop was practically
the life of mining in the Crown
King section at one time. It produced
millions when the scales tipped $1.20
an ounce, but when the old Tiptop mine
presumably played out at the 500 foot
level and the finishing touches were
given the white metal by legislation ami
ixilitical issues, tho old camp crumbled
into decay and for years no one cared
to follow the only pursuit it offered.
The Bhinmcnt that has just been made
by Mr. Wagner goes to El Paso and the
statement is made that it is worth over
iuu u ion in goiu. in eariy uays ore
carrying GOO ounces to the ton was a
common occurence from the Tiptop
Labor Scarco in Pinal
E. A. Stafford, superintendent of the
Arizona-Pacific Copper company, at
Wooley, Pinal county, spent tho day
in Phoenix, en route to Portland, Ore.,
where ho will visit the fair and attend
tho session of the National Irrigation
congress to which meeting he was appointed
a delegate bv Governor KiMu.u
Although mining is Mr. Stafford's business,
for some time nast he ha Imnn
overseeing the work now being carried
on at the head of the Florence canal.
"It will require about two years' more
time and $100,000 to complete the work
projected by the Florence Canal com
pany," said Mr. Stafford at his hotel
yesterday afternoon; "that is, if our
labor does not go back on us. The
question of labor is about as difficult
for us as is the engineering feature.
Wo have now about a hundred nun gt
work, but no one is turned away."
A GOOD MINE SALE
Property Near Greene Gold Placers
Sold to Chicago Parties
That, eastern capital has not taken
very seriously tho various attacks that
have been 'made on the Greene gold
property was given a .pretty substantial
demonstration in Bisbee when a
payment of $1000 was made to John J.
Brooks to bind a bond given by him to
Chicago and New York people on
ground ho owns in Sonora, near the
Greene Gold placer fields. Mr. Brooks
has left for Los Angeles, where he has
a sister, with whom he will visit for a
few days and then depart for Chicago.
He goes to the latter place to close the
details of the sale he has made on his
Sonora property. When this closure is
made, there will be a substantial cash
payment and probably all of the $50,-000
he has agreed to part with his property
for, says the Review. J. J.
Brooks is well known in Pre&cott and is
interested in the Bannie group of
mines, located in Yavapai county.
Mining Now Reported by our Arizona
From tho Florence Uliulo.
The Pacific Copper company, which
is engaged in extensive development of
mines in the Pittiiburg district, Pinal
county has recently installed a complete
shaft equipment, including a
power hoist, electric light plant
and pumps, and is now sinking the
main working hhaft 1000 feet deep.
The ore is from a middling to fair
quality, more than half of which is of
a good shipping grade. Cyanide tanks
and crusher will be erected for reducing
the low grade ore to a shipping
