"The TJrique mining district is in the
extreme southwestern portion of the
state of Chihuahua, Mexico; and al
though 90 miles beyond the present ter

mately be only 30 miles southeast of the
graded line. It is in the mineral belt
of the Sierra Sladres. Southeast is the
Batopilas district, and only a few miles
away is the Llmra de Oro gold mine
with millions of ore in sight; and in
the same district Is tihe Rio Plata mine,

there are several other properties that
have a credited output of several mil
lions of dollars, all within a few miles
of the city of Urique. -None of these
properties have been worked to water
level, and there are bodies of ore still
in place that by modern methods of
smelting will pay handsomely. Within
an area of ten miles square are to be
seen over 100 veins yet ope to de
nouncement. Ancient Methods.
By the old method or reduction em
ployed by the Mexicans for over 300
years, nothing but the richest ores could
be reduced at a profit, and as a con
sequence, immense amounts of ores
were left in the mines and thrown over
the dumps that can, under modern
methods, be treated profitably. The
old smelters were "adobe' The ores
were first crushed fine and washed to
eliminate the silica before smelting. By
this method the chlorides of silver -were
washed out and rich values lost. A ton
of charcoal was used to smelt a ton of
ore. The excessive heat caused loss of
silver in the fumes, aggregating nearly
50 per cent of the values. By the mod
ern methods the loss would not be over
five per cent. At one time there were
over 100 of these adobe smelters operat
ing in the TJrique camp, yielding over
15,000 ounces of silver dally. These
are all abandoned and only high grade
ore is now mined and shipp'ed, being
packed over nearly 100 miles by trail
to railroad and thence to the Chihua
hua smelters. This system costs the
producer $100 per tOD.
3Tcw Sinelter to Be Erected.
The TJrique Mining and Smelting com
pany will Install a smelting plant with
a capacity of -15 tons daily, the cost of
whicn will approximate $15,000. In
addition to the ores produced by its own
mines, it will purchase ores from the
"gambosinos, or "high graders," nu
merous in the district.
"Mr. Monge, a merchant in TJrique,
informed me that within sixty days
after- the erection of the plant the
"gambosinos" would have hundreds of
tons on the dump ready for the plant,
which would be increased greatly at
the end of the year. When develop
ments warrant, another furnace will be
installed, the motive power havln
been provided for in the parent plant.

The Oro Grande and Other.
Another mine Is the Oro Grande, four
miles from, the smelter site, with four
pertenencias, undeveloped, but of prom

five to eight feet wide. Two samples
from it gave assays (1) of $120 gold and
7S ounces silver; (2) 340 gold and 14

average sample values of $26 in gold

from $3 to $10 in gold and eight to
nine ounces silver.
The Mohawk, with 20 pertinencias, is
