company was recently organized which
took over the Ernestine and Maud min

operate both properties on a much
larger scale than before. The Ernestine
company Is the largest gold producer
in New Mexico and has been a divi

capacity of the mill increased.
The new company will proceed at

10 BIGGEST OIL WELLS, II
YIELD 210.000 BARRELS DAILY
Monterey, Mex, Jan. 4. In all ,the
world there is no greater manifesta
tion of nature's wealth-producing
power than exists in the remote set
tlement of Juan Casiano, in the state
of Veracruz, in the east coast region
of Mexico. This marvel of modern
times is an oil' well that for 843 days
has been producing at the rate oi
l $1 worth of oil every four seconds.
Aladdin with his lamp never wrought
a greater wonder In the creating of
riches by magical means than was
accomplished at Juan Casiano on
September 1, 1910, when a crew of
American well drillers punctured a
subterranean reservoir of crude petro
leum. Since that May the well has
been flowing without interruption with
its gate valve three-fourths closed. Its
production up to this time totals ap
proximately 20,000,000 barrels, valued
Will Flow 100,000 Barrels Dally
What the aggregate of the well's
flow would have been had the mouth
of the S-lnch pipe been permitted to
remain wide open is largely conjec
tural. It is conservately estimated,
however, that the well's capacity Is in
excess of 10.0,000 barrels per day. As
an evidence of the scope and strength
of the pressure that is back of the
oil flow, the fact is cited that when
the well was first brought in the
gatd' valve was adjusted to a pres-sure-of
290 pounds to the square inch
and that this pressure has not varied
a fraction of an ounce since then.
This is proof, it is stated, that the
pressure behind the oil flow is still
as great as it was when the strike was

as this one in the Juan Casiano field.

ORO MINE IS BEING
New Owner Hn Made Second Shipment
to the El Paso Smelter Good
Body of Ore Opened
"Oro Blanco looks good to me and
the more I see of it the better I like
it" says George B. Williams of Ro
chester and Geneva, N. Y., owner of
the Oro mine. Since the change in
ownership of the Oro mine, about a
year ago extensive developments have
been made by Mr. Williams.. Some 3,000
feet of drifts and stopes have been un
watered which were filled with sur
face water during the period of idleness.-
THo main shaft has been re
timbered tv the bottom and drifting
and cross-cutting have been com
menced at several points orf the vari
ous levels and from the bottom of the
shaft, the latter being 340 feet in depth
and the deepest in the district
At the 150-foot level a crosscut from
the south drift has opened a fine body
of ore. The breast shows five feet of
sulphide, which runs from $10 to $12
gold per ton.
A crosscut from the north drift on
the same level will, it is expected, open
ore within 20 feet The drifts Snd
crosscuts started from the bottom of
the shaft will open the several veins
at a depth of from 340 feet to 400 feet
of stoplng ground.
Several veins were prospected from
the surface by the previous owner to
depths of from 50 to 150 feet From
one of these, the Julia, bullion to the
amount of $30,000 was sent by the
superintendent to the Denver mint
This amount represented the free gold
caught on the plates of the milL Con
siderable concentrates of a fair grade
were shipped, to the smelter at Pueblo,
On the Julia two ore shoots were
opened which at the 100-foot level were
from 8 to 20 feet wide and about 200
feet In length. It was from these that
a large part of the bullion was de
rived.,. The values ran from $8 to $25
gold per ton.
The oro at the 150-foot level is be
low the zone of oxidization and only
sulphide ore is found in developing at
this point At the breast of tha
"mill tunnel," 580 feet from the mouth
and 400 feet from the Julia shaft, a

Mr. Williams has just shipped 40
tons of concentrates to the smelter at

TO SHIP TO EL PASO
FROM SINALOA MINE
Guaymas, Son.. Mex., Jan. 4. George
Benton of Los Angeles has returned
to his mine at Cosala, about 60 miles
southeast of Culiacan, Slnaloa. Mr.
Benton's property consists of a group
of about 75 mines, but no ore-has been
shipped for the last two or three years
on account of the disturbances exist
ing in the country. He is Interested
with the well-known mining man,
George Mitchel, and they are now go
ing to begin active operations. The
mines carry copper, gold and silver.
They formerly shipped to Tacoma, but
it is now the intention of Mr. Benton
to ship ore to the smelter at El Paso.
Thus far about $200,000 has been spent
in development work. Further explor
ation work Willi be carried on with
the ultimate view of erecting a smelter

In the oil Industry for the reason that
in that same coast region there is
another well situated In the Potrerb
del Llano field which has a proved ca
pacity of 110,000 barrels per day, but
owing to the lack of facilities for
storing and piping its output, the mon
ster is at present harnessed and only
a few thousand barrels per day are
permitted to escape from the hole.
Another remarkable feature of this
well is that its oil has a gravity of
22 degrees Baume. which places it in
the light crude, or higher grade class,
while most of the other oil in the Gulf
coast territory of Mexico is only 12 to
14 degrees gravity.
Already there are in steel tank stor-
j a,ge from this well more than 7,000,000
barrels or on. xnis enormous quan
tity is in addition to the daily quan
tity of fluid that Is marketed.
Holding the Excess Flow
In order to provide for the excess
flow above the supply required to meet
the present daily sales, the company
has been building steel storage tanks
at the rate of two per week, eaci
tank having a capacity of 65,000 bar
rels. There are at this time more than
30 of these tanks located near Tam
pic'o. 67 miles from the well: 60 tanks
at Tankville, about three miles south
of Tampico, and many others at San
Geronimo. on the borders of Lake Ta
miahua, 50 miles south of Tampico.
Running from Juan Casiano to .Tam
pico are two 8-inch pipe lines which
haVe an 'aggregate capacity of 60,000
barrels per day. Besides the more
than 7,000,000 barrels of steel tank
storage capacity, the company has two
earthern reservoirs filled with oil ag
gregating more than 1,000.000 barrels.
Besides the "Casiano No. 7" well
the fiuasteca, Petroleum company
owns several other large producing
wells in the same field, one of them
having a dally output of 14,000 bar

good ore. By tunneling it is possible
to get 600 or 700 feet under the apex.
It is said that the bondholders will
