.Valuable Geological Map of
State Prepared by Wm. B.
Phillips, of University.
Br L. n. Davie.
The University of Texas's bureau of
economic geology and technology, of
which Wm. B. Phillips, Ph. P-, is di
rector, has issued two geological maps
of great interest and economic Import
ance, one of which la of a portion of
west Texas, and the other is of the
location of iron ore deposits, blast fur
naces, lignite mines la operation and
producing oil fields in east Texas.
The 'West Texas Map.
The geological map of a portion of
west Texas shows parts of Brewster,
Presidio, Jeff Davis and El Paso coun
ties, and south of the Southern Pacific,
railroad, by Benj. J. Hill and J. A.
L'dden, of the University of Texas min
eral survey in 1904. This map is based
on the United States geological sur
vey topographic sheets and recoaaois
sance maps covering this area, field
w ork by William B. Phillips, B. F. Hill
and J. A. Udden. The areas marked
"upper cretaceous" expose upper cre
taceous sediments later than the Tay
lor marls. The lower 100 feet' of these
sediments contain all the coal found In
this region. The formation consists
of three members and is of sufficient
importance for separate mapping,
chiefly in the country east of Ter
llngua, although considerable outcrops
occur also in Presidio county, notably
sear Sin Carlos.
The quicksilver deposits are con
fined to the areas marked "-tpper cre
taceous" and "lower cretaceous, and
to the localities where these are cut
by certain igneous rocks. There are
figures appended to name of locali
ties designating elevatlors In feet
above sea level. .
Divided Into Localities.
The map is divided Into localities
called respectively: Fort Hancock
sheet. Sierra Blanca, Ragle Mountain,
Van Horn. Chispa, San Ca-los, Valen

Terllngua and Chisos.
Prominent mountain ranges and their
highest elevations are as follows: The
Malone mountains, 5000 feet, of the
Jurassic period; Quitman mountains,
6250 feet, lower cretaceous. Eagle

Where Ceal la Found.
Coal occurs in the Eagle mountains,
in San Carlos and Pllares between
Sierra Vieja mountains and the Rio
Grande; and tin Hough Run 'and Cot

creek. Silver and lead are found in
the Quitman and Chinati mountains:
and qulcks'lver in the Terllngua and
Chisos districts and the Mariscal
mountains in the Big Bend country.
This map fails to mention the pres
ence of gold and copper, which occur
in the Quitman and Eagle mountains,
and silver, which occurs in the Sierra
Viejo range. The zinc mines in the
Eagle mountains are also overlooked,
which are near Eagle Springs.
RICH ORE BODY IN x
Ofcas lute New Ore Body 10 Feet
Wide and ef Geed Grade; Se-
eerre Drifts Advance.
Mogollon. N. M., Nov. 2. At the Er
nertme Mining company the main tun
nel west has opened into a new ore
body 10 feet wide, of an excellent mill
grade. This Is the fifth great ore
shoot proven on this property. The
main tunnel east is also entering pay
ground. Both of these discoveries are
in virgin territory. The first 20 days
in October yielded 22,550 ounces, Troy,
of gold and sjlver bullion and 15,500
pounds of high grade concentrate.
Seven hundred and rwenty tons of ore
-were milled during the week.
The Socorro mine drifts have been
advanced 50 feet, both east and west,
on the eighth level and the three-compartment
shaft is being sunk to the
ninth level. Five hundred, 700 and 800
are all yielding a good tonnage of mill
At the Deadwood mines five bars of
sold and silver bullion were shipped
for the second 10-day clean-up in Oc
tober. Daring the week 350 tons of
ore were milled and 35 feet of develop
ment work done in the mine. Fine mill
ore is coming from the lowest level.
At the Oaks company eight out of
the nine development headings now
being advanced by the company on
several of its properties, are yielding
a good grade of ore which is being sent
to the custom mills. Shipments the
past -week amounted to 102 tons of a
$16 average grade.
At the Deep Down 90 tons of ore
-were shipped to the custom mills dur
ing the week.

Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico, Nov. 2.
A. L. Lewis, of the Sonora Ore buying
agency, passed through Guaymas en
route to Hermosillo, having spent sev
eral days in Toledo. Mr. Lewis states
that he is shipping more ore now than
ever before, having nearly 1000 ani
mals at work freighting ore and con
centrates from the mines at San Xa
vier. He expects to ship five or six
cars a week.
Harry Stauffer is in Guaymas get
ting ready to ship a carload of lumber
to the Las Animas mine at San Xavier,
for the purpose of putting in a lixi
vating plant. W. C Laughlln is les
see of the Las Animas mine, and Is
putting in this additional plant in or
der to take care of the low grade ore.
The high grade ore is shipped as ore
and concentrates, by freight, to the
smelter in El Paso. The low grade ore
is treated at the mine by lixivation,
and the silver bullion is then shipped
out by express.

Cesrtiaatl a Proven Camp.
Courtland is proved as a deep mining
camp, according to reports and samples
received in Douglas. The camp has
always labored under the disadvantage
of being pronounced by experts to hare,
a blanket formation only and no sul-'
phide ores. At least three" strikes of
sulphides have been made on as many
properties within the last few aays
On the Leadville, which was recently
taken over by Neer & Fuller, of Doug-
Its, a sulphide body was struck in the
new shaft at the depth of about 125
feet. Sinking has been in progress
lor several days in this formation.
In the Maid of Sunshine claim of the J
Great Western company the churn drill
ran into a body of high-grade sulphides
at a depth of 600 feet more than a
week ago and is still working in it.
Another strike wis made on a lease.
The sulphides are considered by ex
perts to prove that the camp has brill
iant prospects, for proving up as a
deep mining proposition.

CDPPER BELT OF SOUTHWEST
IS CONSTANTLY SEINE WIDENED
Western Side of Peloncillo
Range, South of Steins,
Has Mucn Low Grade Ore.
By L. H. DAVIS.
Constantly the area of the copper
belts of the southwest is being ex
tended by new discoveries. A recent
trip through the western part of New
Mexico into the eastern part of Ari
zona impressed me as disclosing a re
gion whieh will in th future figure
prominently in copper production, al
though it seems to have been over
looked by the earlier prospectors,
whose whole efforts were directed to
the exploration for silver and gold.
Reference is made particularly to the
western side of the Peloncillo range
south of Steins, New Mexico. While
there is one old mine there, with a
record of important production, it be
longs to the vein class of ore deposits
which in former days was the only
class of mines that attracted the pros
pectors. It is the Johnny Bull copper
mine. To the modern prospector, how
ever, there is every evidence of exten
sive copper deposits in the class called
disseminated copper deposits -which
will in the long run prove of great
economic importance and will over
shadow the vein deposits.
An authority, B. S. Butler, says that
from the standpoint of mineral com
position and geological occurrence, the
copper deposits may be grouped into
six principal classes and the approxi
mate quantity derived from each
group may be ascertained. In a gen
eral way this grouping also classifies
the ores according to the metallurgical
treatment to which they are best
Important Belt in San Simon District.
There is an important belt of dis
seminated copper deposits in the Pe
lonc,illo mountains in what is called
the San Simon mining district, which
... er.i.. ., ti,. E,.tira
Pacific dailroad in western Grart 1
county. New Mexico, and extends
southward some miles. Prominent in
this belt are the group of mines called
the King and Queen copper mines and
the Johnny Bull mine, which are about
nine miles south of Steins, lying on
the western slope of the range.
The immediate region of these min
ing properties and in which they are
located, is composed of both stratified
and eruptive rocks. Carboniferous
limestone attains great thickness and
thin strata of shale and slate are in
terbedded at particular points in the
limestone series. Two principal erup
tive rocks broke through the sedi
mentary series, disturbing and tilting
them, forming intrusive dikes and ex
tens we surface flows. The older of
these porphyries is basic in character
and dark colored and is perhaps
augite-andesite. The newer porphyry
is of a more acidic-character, light in
color and allied to quartz-monzonite
porphyry. It is this later eruptive
rock that forms, the intrusive quarzose
dikes that penetrate the limestone
and the earlier andesite flows.
The intrusion of these acidic dikes
into the basic components is the direct
cause of the induced mineralization,
says Fayette A. Jones, the mining
geologist The effect of metamor
phism is observed near and along the
planes of contact of the dikes with the
limestone and the andesite. Much of
the limestone has been altered into
marble and massive garnet rock, extending-
over the zones of mineraliza
tion Epldote is also abundant and
exists throughout the entire range of
The usual occurrences of the va
rious ores of the Peloncillo range are:
First, gold and silver occurrences
along the contact of the acidic intru
sives with the basic andesites, second,
lead-silver deposits in the limestones,
occurring in chambers eroded by the
action of water in and along fault
planes; third, copper-silver segrega
tions alone- fault planes, near the con
tact -with tne intrusive rocks fourth,

nearly $800,000. With fhe other prop

The Ivanhoe property, of J. M. John
son, has been bonded to Colorado cap
italists for a sum approximately
$300,000. The engineers representing
the Coloradans are now examining the
mine and the deal is expected to be
closed within the next few days.
The Three R property has struck a
body of calchocite ore in its new shaft,
at a depth of approximately 500 feet.
The' ore carries excellent values. Its
extent has not been determined. The
Three Rxmine is now shipping between
100 and 125 tons daily to the El Paso
smelters, having recently increased Its'

During the last week or so a num
ber of wild rumors concerning the
wonderful richness of the new camp
'of Corncob, 15 miles from Benson, have
been received here. These were
laughed at when two mining men of
long experience arrived in the city
from the new camp. They state that
Corncob has a fairly' good surface
showing, but that little development
work has been done and they saw
nothing to become excited over. The
surface assays are no better, they say,
than can be obtained upon practically
any of the hills surrounding Tomb

H. C. Beauchanip, general manager,

to proceed uninterrupted with any
work they may undertake, the com

The Queen and King Mines.
In the Queen and the King, chalco

This dike is intersected by the Johnny
Bull claim on the south of the Queen.
The Johnny Bull is said to have pro-'
duced about $25,000 m copper-stiver
values, most of the ores extracted
having been oxidized ores along tSe
contact of the dike and limestone.' The
dike on the Copper Queen is thor
