ftOTTI AND SILVEE
MINES IN JIMENEZ
Only One Gold Mine in the
District Which Is Silver
"Sierra Amoloya is one of the rich
est mineraa camps in the republic of
Mexico," said Capt. Adolfo Bromimann
of Jimenez, Mexico, now at the Zeiger.
"Its distinctive feature being immense
bodies of lead and silver ore. I am
the owner of a mine dn that camp that
is the onlv gold mine in the mountain.
The ore occurs all through the hill,
partly in quartz and also in the crystal
Ine lime. There are porphyry intru
sions, however, and rich ore occurs in
the contacts. Among the large ore
bodies I get very high grade gold ore,
running all the way from a few grams
of gold per ton up to 75,000 in gold,
per ton. It is a mineral zone.
"Although it is a comparatively new
mine, I Ihave been working it for the
past eight years, shipping only the
high grade ore to the smelters of Tor
reon, the Mexican ore company and
to Santa Hosa-.a. It has yielded about
$2,000,000 during the eight years. All
the lower grade ore I have left on the
Sumps, amounting to about 100,000 tons,
which will be treated some time m the
future in a mill.
"This gold property consists of the
Julleta and Anexas and comprises 200
pertenancias or about 500 acres of
ground. The property is extensively de
veloped, aflthough my workings are
pretty well up the mountain; and so
there 3s plenty of unexplored ground
vet to be mined. I am working from
''50 to 300 men most ot the tLme. I am
told, that thett-luvia de Oro in western
Chihuahua is the only other gold mine
in that state in which the gold occurs

another mine which Is a Spanish anti

on account of the low price of silver
I am working it on a smaller scale
than formerly. This property contains

MEXICO IS ADVERTISING
ITS 3IIXER.4&1 LANDS
Leopold Salazar, secretary of the Mex
ican Mining institute, is writing a book
entitled "The Mining Industry of Mexi
co." He has the cooperation of 23 min
ing engineers. It will be compiled from
the archives of the fomento department
and from state records and will be
printed in Spanish and English.
In this connection it should be noted
that the minister of fomento, Olegarlo
Molino has decided to open the Geo
logical Institute of Mexico every day
during the month of September, and has
given orders that the museum be re
arranged with a special view of making
it attractive for visitors. Bailings will
be put in and the choicest mineral col
lections will be placed on exhibit. It is
being done largely on account of the
American visitors expected in the capi
tal city during the centenial celebra
tion. NAICAi CA3IP BOOMING.
Development work in the Kaica camp.
Chihuahua, Mexico, is showing deposits
of ore. In -the Ramon Corona, diamond
drilling operations have shown a great
deposit of fine ore, and now a 1000 foot
shaft has been started. Large bodies of
ore are reported to have been struck in
the Fortuna mine of the Lepanto prop
erty and also in the San Patricio and
the Siglo XX mines. The new cable
way from the Gibraltar mine is carrying
six tons of ore per hour to the railroad.

TO FURNISH POWER
Will Run Line From Douglas
to El Tigre 50 Miles
South in Mexico.
From. Douglas, Ariz., comes word that
under the terms of the contract ara.iwi
up between the Copper Queen and El
Tigre mining companies, work is to be
started immediately on the installation
of an electric cable by which the Cop
per power house will supply the El Ti
gre mine, 50 miles south of Douglas, In
Sonora, with power to light the interior
of the works and to run the new mill.
Concessions have been obtained from
the Mexican government granting the
right of way for the poles and the wire,
and two surveys for possible routes
have been made, one of which will be
chosen. By running the line southeast
from Douglas via Colonia Morales, a
considerable distance would be saved;
but on the other hand, if the line should
follow the railroad from Douglas as
far as Ysabel, the transportation of
mineral and supplies would be .greatly
facilitated. Harry Hartwell; engineer
of the firm of Sanderson and Porter of

IRON ORE REPORTED
IN MAL PAIS RUINS
Bodies of Iron Found 30 Feet Below
Surface Near Gran Qnivlra Caube
Carrizozo, N. M., Aug. 22. What is
believed to 'be one of the largest de
posits of Iron ore in the southwest has
been discovered near the historic old
ruins of Gran Qulvera under the mal
pals or lava beds that extend north
and south about 25 miles and are sev
eral miles wide. The extent ,of this iron
deposit is unknown at the present time.
The discovery was made by J- B.
French, of Ancho. He sank a shaft and
when down about 30 feet he encounter
ed the iron. The iron ore Is said to be
high grade and apparently to occur in
unlimited quantities. Many claims have
been located In the vicinity under the
placer mining law
George Spcnce, of Carrizozo, has been
on the ground and reports the strike
as an unusual one. E. 1' ox of tne Ji-
carilla district is also prospecting in

ter of the vojeano are reasonably ac
counted for en this theory.
Gran Qulvera was for many years
thought to be a mythical city created
by the fertile brains of the old Spanish
Invaders of New Mexico. But when the
old ruins and the mission church were
found nearly buried rn lavas, it became
almost certain that it -was the long lost
VANADIUM ORE SHIPPED
FROJI MEXICAN MINE
A new thing in the way of ore ship
ments has occurred in northern Mexico.
L. C. Worcester, of Chihuahua, has ship
ped three tons of concentrates of vana
dium ore in theshape of vanadanate of
lea to the General Vanadium company
of New York, who have contracted to
take the output of the mine. It is ex
pected that three tons of concentrates
can be shipped a month, and 18 per cent
material is worth 50 cents per "pound.
The Madero brothers are the owners of
the mines near Cuchillo Parado. on the
Concho river, in eastern Chihuahua.
The mines also contain a great amount
of molybdate of lead, and can put out
ore running 30 per cent molybdic acid.
The Maderos have been developing thex
lead mines for the past five years.
MOCTEZUMA'S NEW SYSTEM
FOR TREATING TA.1IINGS
, Preparations are being made at the
concentrating plant of the Moi-tezuma
Copper company, ?l Nacozar. Sonora,
Mexico, to install an aerial fam to
carry the tailings io a at rag. oond
above the river flood level where they
will be impounded for future treatment.
This will result in less contamination of
the water flowing to the ranches at
Cumpas, and lower points. The Taylor
Engineering company is reported to
have obtained1 a contract for the dewa
tering device to be placed at the head
of the tramway. One unit of filter
press is being installed to save floating
sulphides "which have been the cause of

In making up limc-li for picnickers,
some form, of substantial food that can

Two Husre Cvanide Process
Mills, Under Gonsruction,
Chihuahua, Mex., Aug. 22. Mining In
terests in Mexico are recovering grad
ually from the financial 'depression of
1907, and Parral -is not behind the rest
of the state. The end of the present
year will see that camp with two great
cyanide mills. The Palmilla Milling
company, with its first unit of 333 tons
daily capacity in a plant planned to be
made 1000 tons capacity, and the 300
ton mill and cyanide plant of the Veta
Colorado Mining and Smelting company
will be in, full operation.
The cyanide process is the only pro
cess to rejuvenate mining in the Parral
district with its vast and numerous bod
ies of low grade silicious silver ores.
The absolute certainty of the operation
of the two cyanide mills before the nd
of the year is giving heart to the min
ers, for those plants will do custom
work, especially the Palmilla mill.
Mill Completed In October.
The Palmilla Milling company ex
pects to fiave its first 333-ton unit in
operation October next. This is the
statement of Jas. I. Long, general man
ager. The Veta Colorado Mining and
Smelting company expects to have its
300-ton ml in operation by the end of
the year, according to M. W. O'Brien,
Jas. I. Long says the work on the
Palmilla mill and cyanide plant is pro
gressing well. The steel work is com
pleted. The Alvarado Consolidated Mines
company is installing pumping and
hoisting machinery in the new tunnel
ad on the new shaft of the Palmilla
mine, so as to be ready to operate the
mine on a large scale just as soon as the
Palmilla mill is ready to treat the ore.
An aerial tram is being built from the
mouth of the tunnel to the mill. It will
be about one kilometer long and can
transport 300 tons of ore in 8 , hours.
A gravity tram of similar capacity to
transport dump ore from the top of the
hill to the loading station of the aerial
tram is also being built.
Precious Metals Mined.
The new company, E. A. Swain, man
ager, operating the Tajo mine, is taking
out about 4500 tons of ore monthly, and
shipping about 3500 tons of thats The

talists. The Cia Minera de Penoler, which
owns the Mapini smelter, is developing
under option to purchase the Rosalana,
east of the Palmilla, and the La Perla

is grading the site for its reduction
plant. Machinery will soon commence
arriving from England.
The' El Rayo M. & D. comnanv is
treating from 4000 to 50,00 tons of ore
monthly, and is preparing to build an
aerial tramway to transport wood
down the mountain to its mill.
The Tecolotes y Anexas, a Guggen

pany's property, near Sta. Barbara, is
being sold under foreclosure in the Par
ral court, and as soon as this is cleared
up it is expected the company will be
reorganized and work started.
F. C. Morehouse and B. Golson, the
Alferena Mining company, are shipping
from three to four cars of ore daily
from the Alferena mine.
RICH STRIKE IS MADE '
IX THE SANTA EDUWIGIS
The latest strike of rich ore In the
Parral district, Mexico, was made in
the Santa Eduwigis mine, one of the
properties of the Parral-Chihuahua
Mines company. A good grade of copper-silver
ore was encountered In the
shaft of this mine at a depth of 75 feet
The company has been -sinking on the
hanging wall streak, as the vein, being
over IS feet thick, is too wide to be
covered by the working shaft. As the
shaft has shown ore continuously going
down for over 40 fee"t and the vein is
mineralized on the outcrop for a long
distance, the ore shoot now opening up
gives promise of sufficient permanence
to justify the prediction that it will
produce a large amount of money to rhe

Cananea, Mex., Aug. 22. The Greene
Cananea Copper company has a plan nf
retrenchment effective. For a week all
work has been discontinued at the prop
erty at Puertocitos, and at Henrietta
all development work has been discon- J
tinued and the output lessened. At JZS J
sa the production has also been consul- I
erably lessened. These properties are
those which lie farthest from the smel-
ter and n curtailing operations and j
closing down one mine (the one located ,
at the extreme end of the narrow gage j
railway) the cost of transportation .of
ores to tne reuuiuuii piiun. is i.uiu"-'
abb' decreased, bringing the cost down
to conform with the output.
ny,a onmnnnv lists madf the move I
without any agreement with any other j
company, but it can be looked upon
salelv as an act of self preservation.
Just how long this curtailment will be J
effective is not known at present' and j
general manager Riclcetts will not dis
cuss this point; but it is certain that if
the copper market recovers sufficiently
the production will again be increased i
to its former amount. The output for
the month of July was the heaviest
known in the history of the new man
agement: 4,500,000 pounds.
Two furnaces were allowed to cool
and the smelter is now operating at half
its capacity. During the past few days
the average output was approximately
50 tons of copper daily aAd it is not im
probable that this will be the average
output during the period of retrench
