Hayden, Ariz.. July 3. The .Calumet
Copper Greek Mining company, the
name of the reorganized Copper Creek
Mining company of Mammoth, Arizona,
Is rapidly leaving the stages of develop
ment and exploration work and enter
ing the producing stage. The camp Is
located about 35 miles from Hayden
and is reached by a well graded wagon
road, but plans are already under way
for a railroad to be built as soon as
the necessary funds are available. This
road will also reach the 'ii'n" c
Black Warrior and numerous other
smaller mines in that vincinity. The"
elevation of the Copper Creek camp is
a little over 5000 feet, the climate being
both summer and winter.
The mill, which has just recently
been erected, has a capacity of about
150 tons of ore per day of 24 hours,
and will be run with this capacity for
some time. The mines are located
about two and one-half miles-from the
mill and at present the ore is being
transported by means of two large auto
trucks of about five tons capacity each.
The road is laid very securely of a ma
cadamized nature. Grading, however,
has been finished for a railroad lino
to be put in between these two points
and 30-pound rail is already on the
ground to be used for that purpose. A
30-ton engine has been ordered and
will be used on this run. This will
eliminate a considerable amount of
the present transportation costs, which
heretofore have been very high.
About 75 men are employed at the
present time, consisting mostly of Mex
ica and Indian "labor, the former being
employed In the mill and mine and lat
ter on the grading work, etc. It has
been found necessary to only run the
mill one shift until the mine is able to
produce more concentrating ore; ore
of higher grade is now being conveyed
to Winkelman and thence shipped to
the El Paso smelter. As soon as the
local smelter has installed a blast fur
nace, the ore will be smelted at this
point and a great saving in the freight
will be the result. Two anto trucks
are now in operation conveying the ore
and concentrates between fee camp and
Winkelman. Power 'or use in both the
mine and mill is generated in their
own power house 'ccated about two
and one-half miles from the mill. The
water for use in the mill Is secur-d
from Copper creek, a large water res
ervoir having been constructed where
enough water can be stored to keep the
mill running for about eight months
at the present capacity.
IS. Sibley, president and manager of
the company, has returned from a trip
to Europe where he has been to finance
the proposition and will remain here
for some time. Mr. Gelsie is mine sup
erintendent and Charles Johnsop is
superintendent of the milV both very
experienced men in their lines. A
Avilla. formerly in the employ of the
Ray Consolidated Copper company, has
charge of the concentrating department
in the mill and Billie Holden is fore
man of the roll floor.

This Is the first payment upon her
Huachuca mining property. The re
mainder of the purchase price is to be
paid in two instalments, the first at
the end of one and the second at the
end of two years.
It is the intention of the purchasers
to begin development work upon the
properties in the near future. Under
the terms of the bond they agree to ex
pend not less than $20,0000 upon the
property during the next year. They
intend to instal a concentrator upon
the ground in the near future. The
capacity of the plant is not announced.
An office will be established In this
city, which will be made headquarters
for the property.
The ground figuring in the deal is
located 16 miles from Hereford. It
consists of 160 acres of patented min
eral land. Up to the present time about
4000 feet of work has been done upon
it In shafts, tunnels and drifts. The
property Is said to have produced more
than 100.000 in ore since it was first

immediate vicinity are working at
present, the Minneapolis Copper com
pany, which has been closed down for
several years nas resumed operations
in a small way. There are about 15
men employed on the property at pres
ent. Shipments will be made to the
Copper Queen smelter here at the rate
of about 50 tons of high grade ore
weekly. The mine is located in the
Cumpas district and is owned by Min
neapolis. Minn., capitalists. News of
the Intended shipments, the first of
which will reach here in a few days,
was brought to Douglas by its mana
ger, W. M. Kemp.
The Transvaal property, which ad
joins that of the Minneapolis company,
is developing its holdings upon a large
scale, both by tunnels, shaft work and
diamond drilling. The latter operatlors

Bonanza Zinc Mines in El
Paso Comity Now Be
Steins, N. M., July 3. The National
Gold and Silver Mining company has
been worklnr a vein of fine ore for the
past week. The vein Is four feet wide,
o' fine quality and the values are con
stantly increasing as work progresses.
This Is the third ore body cut in
this property within the past 12
months. The company will begin ship
ping as soon as it has the shaft re
timbered and the compressor installed.
The Mineral Mountain Mining com
pany will begin work on its property
in the next CO days and will continue
the tunnel already started until it cuts
the copper vein.
Jack (Diamondfield) Davis has quite
a force of miners at work and thty
are taking out some of the richest ore
ever struck on the El Oro mine since
he has opened it up. George Ingham
is in charge of the work and intends
to let a contract to sink anothsr 100
fiet in the shaft.
J. . Writer, U14, well known nun-!
ing engineer who is in El Paso on bus
iness, from Lordsburg, N. M., reports
that that mining camp is continuing
very active and that shipments of ore
are increasing. The normal output of
the vimp has been about 300 tons a
day. Mr. Writer is operating the Dun
dee mine under a lease and bond. This
property adjoins the Eighty-Five group
on the northeast and is on the same
rich vein. The owners are El Paso peo
ple and like the former owners of the
Superior, are in the center of the rich
The Bonanza Zinc Mines.
J. F. Johnstone, who recently pur
chased the old Bonanza mine in the
Quitman mountains, in El Paso county,
about S3 miles east of El Paso, was in
the city yesterday purchasing supplies.
He has opened up a large body of
high grade zinc sulphides, running
about 44 percent, and is hauling the ore
to Lasca siding, about two miles dis
tant from the mine, preparatory to
shipping it to the smelters of Kansas
and Oklahoma. It is said that the
shipments will start off with about a
carload a week, but will be Increased
to double that amount In the near fu
ture. This property was originally owned
and worked by the late CoL Stevenson,
father of Dr. Herbert Stevenson, of El
Paso. It was closed down when the
price of silver declined and has Iain idle
for seieral years. Mr. Johnstone
bought the property from people who
live In eastern Texas. The Quitman
mountains are remarkably well min
