Bonanza Pays Big Dividend
The Bonanza mines controlled by
the Kenoecott Mines Co have paid
another 2000000 dividend on 2500
000 capital The first return on the
investment made at the property and
the costly Copper River railroad Mas
early this year amounting to 1000
0008 Two dividends paid to date
total t000000 or 500000 in excess of
capital The stock of the Kennecott
Co has always been closely held ma
jority owneiship being credited to J
P Morgan interests and the balance
to Kuhn Loeb Co and the Guggen
heims
Thus far the Alaska property has
had the advantage of extremely high
grade copper ore available for ship
ment while in addition the five cent
advance in metal prices during 1912
has been a most important factor Up
to Oct 1 there had been shipped from
the property 24000000 pounds of cop
per New York Mining Age
Arizona has a produced production
of 3 194333111 pounds of copper or
2138 per cent of the total output of the
United States since mining began
In 1911 Arizona produced 303202532
pounds of blister copper as compared
with 297250538 pounds in 1910 This
is the largest output in the history of
the state according to 15 S Butler
of the United States geological survey
and continues Arizona in first place
among the copper producing states
She produced 2703 per cent of the
total output of the country for 1911
The steady output of copper from Ari
zona began about 1875 though there
was intermittent production prior to
mat uate ttie earliest record of pro
duction being for 182 Since 1880 the
growth of the industry has been steadv
and rapid Nine copper smelting
