EDISON THE 1
Says He Needs Mineral to
Make His New Storage
Battery a Success Com
mercially. It is claimed that Thomas A. Edison,
the great inventor, will next spring visit
the Red Bluff group of mines at the
head of Grapevine Creek in the Black
Hills, eight miles south of Jerome.
Ariz., owned by S. Morrison and his
son, R. 13. Morrison. The remarkable
thing about this property that leads
the "wteard" on so long a journey is
that it is claimed to be the only cobalt
mine in the United States, and cobalt Is
the metal that is absolutely negssary
In the manufacture of Mr. Edison's new
electric storage battery. H-e therefore
is vitally interested In this discovery.
Kick Cebalt Lode.
The group consists of four claims.
Up to a year ago the owners -were de
veloping them for copper, gold and sil
ver and some excellent copper ore has
been uncovered. But they have lost
interest now in the red metal. For four
years the Morrisons worked on their
claims before they learned of the pres
ence of cobalt in them. The cobalt lode
was found in a. spot where there was
no indication of mineral.
The earth was black at the particu
lar spot and the owners thought there
might be a spring there. On digging
down they encountered huge pieces of
a peculiar black formation, and at a
depth of four feet below the surface
they uncovered a ledge five feet wide
of what ultimately proved to be co
A year before, at another point a
little "eastward, they had thrown 'several
hundred pounds of this mineral out of
a hole dug for copper ore, which at
the time they supposed to be white
Iron. Afterwards they had various sam
ples assayed at different places and the
assayers all pronouaced it to be cobalt,
and running high in value. The vein
runs east and north around a corner
or angle and has been traced 600 feet
each way, the average width except at
the bend ds two and a half feet.
Value ! $2-50 a Poaad.
A shaft has been sunk 20 feet at the
widest" place on the vein. The value
of cobalt in the market is about $2.50
a pound. An expert has estimated that
there is between ?1Q,000 and $12,000

worth of cobalt ore -on the dumps,
Miners from Canada familiar with this
mineral have visited the Red Bluff
mines and say that it carries the big
gest deposit of cobalt known to exist.
The only mines of this metal of eco
nomic Importance in the world are .said
to be in Canada, and their supply of it
Is limited. A small streak two inches
wide discovered in Tennessee created
great excitement, -hut it pinched out.
It was once abundant at mine La
Motte, Mo., and also near Silver Bluff
CaL ' '
The Morenci Leader says " that Maj.
Jordon, hearing: of the discovers tnnir
100 pounds of samples of the ore east
with him and had It tested by the gov
ernment assayer at Washington, D. C,
who confirmed the previous results and
pronounced it rich cobalt ore. Jordon
became very enthusiastic and on ad
vice of the assayer, visited Edison and
informed him of the remarkable discov
ery. Edison listened very closely to
Jordon's story. He informed the latter
that his new storage battery, capable
of storing many times more electricity
than any other now in use, could not be
used commercially until an adequate
supply of cobalt should be discovered;
and that if the discovery of the Morri
sons proved half as good as Jordon
represented, it would be a boon to man
kind and mark a great step forward in
TVhat Cobalt Is.
Cobalt is a mineral- not generally
recognized by the western miner and
engineer. It hasnot been found na
tive. The ores of cobalt are sulphides,
arsenides, arseno-sulphides, an oxide, a
carbonate, a phosphate and an arsenate;
and nickel is often associated with co
balt in the sulphides and arsenides.
The ores having a metallic luster vary
in specific gravity, are nearly tin-white
or pale steel-gray, inclined to copper
red In color. The 'ores without a
metallic luster have a clear reddish
color. Cobalt glance is a tin-white
color, inclining sometimes to steel-gray.
Cobalt oxide is earthy and massive,
color black or blue-black. It occurs in
an earthy state mixed with oxide of
manganese, as a bag ore, or secondary
product. Cobalt bloom has a color,-
peach-red, crimson-red, rarely grayish
t It is chiefly used for painting on
porcelain and pottery and used in the
