there. The Hay State and other prom

that there will be. mora activities In

awakening, In tho Deer Creek section,
where Mr. J. B. Teeter and Salt Lake
associates are quietly developing the
old Stownrt property, lying between
Dcor Creek nnd Silver Lake Flat.
Concerning this property n Salt Lake
"Four feet of well mineralized vein
matter has been encountered In the
Stownrt property In Dcor Creek, off
American Fork canyon, according to
J. B. T-eotor, general manager of the
company, who is down from tho mlno
for a few days. Tho tunnel Is now In
a llttlo over 200 feet and rapid pro
gress Is being mndo with the new
drills that hnvo been Installed. Sup
plies have been put in and It is the
Intention to work stcndlly nil winter.
Tho ground Is breaking enslly nnd
recently n round of six holes, each five
and one-half feet, wns put In within
an hour and 40 minutes. A driller and
a helper Is able to keep four men
mucking at present.
Tho oro that was encountered Is
henvy In pyrites. Mr. Teeter brought
lu a number of samples which ho I
having assayed. These ho bolloves will
carry good values although tho aver
age of the ore, ho expects, will bo low
grade The ore, ho believes, will carry
considerable gold and a smoll amount
The Stewart ptoperty has been well
equipped with an engine, compressor
and drills It Is tho Intention to push
tho work on through tho vein and get
greater depth. As soon as tho tunnel
has been extended a fow hundred feet
more a cross cut wU bo sent out to
open up one of tho big fissures that
cuts through the property. In tho old
workings the company has about 20
tons of ore socked, which will average
$110 a ton. This ore was taken out
In doing development work.
Tho property Includes eight patent.
I'd claims and n splendid mill site In
Silver Fork canyon. At boiiio future
ditto a tunnel Is to bo run In from
Silver Fork which will crosscut tho
entire formation. This will give a di
rect avenue for the transportation of
ore to a mill should the company de
cide to build one.
The Stewart property Is ono of the
