THE BISBEE DAILY REVIEW, BIS BEE. ARIZONA, WEDNESDAY tMOBNING,. OCTOBER 28, 1903.
Recent development of the Provi
dencia property in northern Sonora
"ha proven most fruitful in result.
Sid Parrish, under whoso manase
ment the mlno is now being worked,
has been in Lie city for the last ween
in the interests of his company.
Mr. Parish is most enthusiastic over
the present outlook and believes that
they have a property that will soon
rival the Lucky Tiger.
The Providencia GolJ and Silver
Mining company's property lies in the
very heart of the famed Moctczuma
'district, being the eastern extension
of tho Copper Queen's dividend paying
Chuarcbabi mine. The well known
San Jose property is situated but a
Tho present workings, though not
extensive, have proven beyond a
doubt that the mineral abounds, in
no small quantity.
Some three hundred feet above the
old shaft, a new shaft is being sunk,
it being the intention of the company
to connect by drifting from both slues
as soon as suuicient depth has been
A sample taken from the new work
ing assayed $46.00 in sliver and $1G.OO
in gold. A vein 4 1-2 feet wide has
been encountered, wnich to the di
rectors is satisfactory evidence that
the development at this spot may be
pushed with good result.
In speaking of transportation facili
ty Mr. Parrish stated that their
property would be but a tenth of the
distance from the new Cos and Nac
ozari railroad, as would be that of the
Upon the completion of the new
road modern machinery will be in
stalled and development work will be
pushed on a much larger scale.
NEW USE FOR A MINE MODEL.
At tho Alaska-Treadwell mine, Ju
neau, Aleska, the manager has in-troduced-a
novel plan as a help in the
development and working of the mine,
in the form of a model made of wood,
constructed on a scale of 30 feet to
li inch, being tho scale of tho mine
mapa. The model is sectional, made
of pine blocks, each representing 100
feet in width on the vein, and the dis
tance between levels. The stopes
and drifts are carved out of the
wood monthly, from tho notes of the
mine surveyor, the model being in
this way kept up to date. One of the
practical results arising from its use,
it is said, is in showing where pillars
and buttresses of rock should be left
standing to support the hanging wail,
and also where ore may be removed
with safety to the surrounding work
ings. The model is studied careful
ly by the foreman and suift bosses,
and it is said to have proven of great
value in the operation of the mine.
The employment of mine maps is not
new, in keeping close -watch ol ue
velopment, but the use of models for
this purpose is novel. Heretofore
mine models have usually been cm
ployed for the purposes of illustrat
ing mine development in the event
of litigation, but this new use of the
mine model can not fail to be of prac
tical value. It affords a comprehen
sive idea of the relative position of
levels, stopes and other cuttings and
the relation of the various ore uuujm
to on another. Possibly a model
made of plaster of Paris would prove
easier to carve out than a pine wood,
but the idea of a model of any materi
al is suggestive, and practical men
will approve such an innovation in
mine development and operation.

January 30, 1905 149,500 00
Work was started early in April,
(after titles had been carefully ex
amined by competent counsel), under
the direction of Superintendent R. S.
Hunt, and the results attained under
his supervision arc such as to indi
cate his ability and insure competent
management for tho future.
The company is sinking a three
compartment shaft, each compartment
being 4 1-2 x5 feet in size, and is mak
ing progress at the present time with
out tho assistance of drilling ma
chines, at tho rate of 90 feet per
month. An air compressor 1Cx1Cx24
capable of supplying air for six drill
ing machines, together with all nec
essary fittings has been shipped, and
when installed it is hoped to make
better progress. Average cost of
sinking per foot, including fuel, wa
ter, labor, explosives, Umbering, tools,
wear and tear of machinery and su
perintendence, has been $40.82.
The following machinery has been
installed for development work: One
12x14 single drum hoisting engine,
three boilers. 110 horsepower, one
6x8 hoisting engine, one boiler, ht-j
Ungs complete, two waier tanks and(
pump, 3,btu leet one-incn sicci mra
Tho laUchinery herein do-
scribed is of sufficient size to enable
sinking to a depth of l.GOO feet.
A contract has been entered into
with owners of contiguous properties
whereby it is agreed that tho boun
dary lines of their properties carried
llown from the surfaco indefinitely in
a vertical plane shall lie tho truo and
actual boundaries of their rights and
claims, thereby precluding tho prob
ability or future UtigaUon.
The management kas endeavored to
pursue a conservative and economical
policy, purchasing only such machi
nery and employing only such labor
as was absolutely necessary to rapid
ly open up the property.

The report of Mine Superintendent
R. S. Hunt, dat o Bisbee. October C.
is as follows:
I herewith har 1 you ray annual re
port ending October 1. 1903. On Apn'
15, I started to b"ild a road to the
proposed shaft. This was arcom-
Vlished in six days. O- April 21 I
commenced sinking a shaft of the
Broken Promise claim. During the
month of may 8,900 feet of pipe were
laid, connecting at Don Luis and run
nlni fro there to the property. As
water would run only to the cook
bouse by being pumped from Naco, I
waR compelled t" install a small
pump and a two boree power boiler to
force tho water to tho -abaft site,
where a I0.00Q gallon tank is located,
this being kept full aTl the time. A
1,000 gallon tank baa been placed
wbeTe pump is located.
The company also erected t--n
bunk louses, one cook house, a shed
for horses, office and temporary en
gine bouse. Within the nest ten days
will bo completed a 25i60 corrugated
Iron engine hoirae, which will en-
engine house, which will enclose the
new 12x1 4 hoist and threo boilers. A
two and one-half compartment shaft
was started and continued so for 75
feot, vhu It was changed t three
compartments as per instructions.
Tho first 80 feet was attained by
use of windlass, and on May 2C, the
company started to use a 6x8 hoist
and 30 horsepower bailer. During the
days when using the windlass, ccnRld
crablo surfaco work was performeu,
sm.Ii a installing hoist and ilctng
boilers, as it wag expensive wiodlas
sing beyond SO feet.
Relative to tho formation in the
shaft I will state, that tho first 0 tea
was through cement, the next SG feet
being black limo and iron, nr! from
there to the present depth the forma
tion has been blue lime, seams of
iron and strata of 6late. I am well
pleased with the favorable indica
tions at tho 200, 300 and 400, and I
have put In stations at theso respec
tive depths, that in case the compabj
ever decides to drift from the afore
said depths it can do so without any
The depth attained on October 1
was 438 feet, of which 425 feet is tim

GOO feet is reached I would recom
