the first of the dally shipments of 200
tons of ore from the Shattuck-Arizona

the claims he has taken up by means
of dry washing and has recovered sev

small nuggets during the last few
weeks. The claim is one which Clark
has held for some time, being located
on the edge of the Fort Huachuca mili

for a number of years that there was
good placer ground on the reservation,
although government rulings forbade
anyone from working it.

ORE IS RECEIVED
FROM SOCORRO MINES
Test of New Automatic Sampler of
Deadwood Mill I Made; Work Is
Started on the Trilby Group.
Mogoilon, N. M., Nov. 16 Custom ore
Is now being received rrom three So
corro properties and two more are
getting ready to ship to their plant.
Fine ore is coming from lowest levels
of the mine. The shaft is going down
steadily and will soon be to the 900
foot level. The average dally tonnage
handled in the mill is 16E tons.
At the Ernestine Mining company the
output for last 11 days of October was
10.530 ounces troy of gold and silver
bullion and 9600 pounds of high grade
concentrate. The total for the month
was 33,080 ounces bullion and 25.100
pounds concentrate:. The regular
monthly dividend of one per cent was
declared November 1. Mine develop
ments continue in the same excellent
grade of ore.
At the Deadwood mines, before using
the new automatic sampler for the cus
tom ore business, the equipment is un
dergoing a series of tests in conjunction
with the old system of sampling, to
determine its accuracy and, after a few
further adjustments, all ores will bl
handled by it. The mill Is running
steadily, averaing 350 tons per week.
At the Oaks company grading is un
der way for the permanent shaft on
the Johnson mine amd plans perfected
for extending the tunnel through to
the end line. At the Pacific, good ore
is coming from the stope and the
several depelopment headings. The
Consolidated, being worked under lease
from Socorro mines, is yielding an ex
cellent grade of mill ore.
At the Trilby group work has been
started and it is the intention to ship
ore to one of the custom mills A gaso
