Globe, Ariz.. Sezi. 29. The enormous
program of mining- and construction
begun by the Inspiration consolidated
copper company at Miami is the most
fsalient point of interest in this year's
raining. The scale of the work that
must be finished before the 60,000,000
tons of the mine's ore have been
-blocked ontand the mill that -will have
to handle the 2,000,000,000 pounds of
copper win be built, is the most en

ICo-w Employs 310 Men.
At present the Inspiration Consoli
dated Copper company is employing
"70 men at underground -work and
about 40 men on surface work. This
foce of 516 men is merely the number
employed at the preparatory mining
work, the hundreds of men engaged in
ttbe mill construction and railroad
grading being employes of contractors.
The last measurements taken in the
inclined shaft showed it to have
reached its objective point, the 3480
'level (the upper tram level). It has
inow been -decided to continue the in
clined shaft to a -depth of 106 feet be
low the upper tram level, for the pur
pose of lifting a poise from that depth
to the 3480, jWhere a 180 ton waste
pocket will be cut. the waste to be
dropped through the raise and lifted
through the inclined shaft to an upper
level, through which it will be con
veyed to the surface. A drift is now
being driven from the Joe Bush portion
of the Inspiration property to connect
with 3480 foot level of the Inclined
Work at the 31111 Site.
At the mill site the steam shoveling
and blasting already have made heaw
inroads on the 300,000 cubic yards of
earth that must be removed before
chief engineer H. Kenyon Burch can
'begin construction of the mammoth
mill that will handle the millions of
tons of ore that have been developed in
the Inspiration. Fourteen draftsmen
are engaged in the task or designing
the plan and details of the huge con
centrator. Because of the similarity
of ores in the inspiration and Miami
properties the Inspiration mill un
doubtedly will be modeled to a. great
extent on the plan of the Miami con
centrator. At the Old Dominion the completion
of the new 500 ton unit of the O. D.
concentrator depends largely on when
the shipments of steel come through
from the east, but if there should be
no delay the concentrator should be
running in the late fall of this year. In
construction work, excavation for the
crusher plant is completed and the

The ore bins at the Kingdon shaft
consist of 4 100 ton capacity pockets, or
400 tons in all. A new air line will be
laid from the O. D. smelter power plant
to the Kingdon shaft soon, and the air

guidance of A. O. Koppes, M. . E., and
the president of the Arnold Mining com
pany, Ed. E. Arnold, of Nogales, Ariz.,
there has been considerable progress at
the property. Since last June work lias
been conducted on a small scale, starting
in With a force of five men. This has
been increased to 30, although operations
have been conducted with a series of dif
ficulties to contend with. Already, the
property has shipped six carloads of ore
to the .Cananea smelter this month, and
another car is being loaded at present.
Koppes and Arnold are very enthusiastic
regarding the outlook in the Santa Cruz
section, as all the owners of mining
ground are eager to begin operations,
seeing the showing the Pilar is making.
They believe that in a short time there
will be quite a camp established in the
mountains. The shipments from Del
Pilar will soon be increased to between
10 and 15 cars monthly. The ore aver
ages 10 percent copper.

Some years ago the Santa Cruz locality
had quite a boom, but no producers re
sulted. Since that time it has been
having an uphill time of it, and now it
seems as if the district will soon come
into its own. " : . .
Jack O'Brien and associates of Can
anea have seeured a lease on the 'old
San Bernardino mine, located close -to
the Alacran mine of the Moctezuma
Arizpe company. This week they took
a stock of supplies to the property end

property which was sunk a few years
ago to a depth of 300 feet or more, and
which showed up considerable ore.
El Temblor to Have a Mill.
EI Temblor mine, located about 11
miles south of El Tigre, ?.nd which is
being operated on a lease by W. L. Rv
nerson, is soon to have a mill. The mill
will be a small one. about 30 tons da;lv
capacity. Considerable high grade ere
has been developed and the main vein,
which is seven feet in width, averages
300 ounces in silver and from five to six
ounces in gold. Twenty tons of ore re

600 ounces silver and between eight and
nine ounces gold.

13 adjoining claims, have been taken
over by J. Joseph Carney and asso
ciates, who intend to put a large force
at wodk as soon as possible. Their in
tention Is to spend a large sum in solv
ing the fault system and determining
exactly what the property is worth.
Former owners have done about J.000
feet of development work' on the group.
Air. Carney estimates that no less than
538.000 has been taken from merely
surface workings on the Bulldog claim.
The main ledge of the group is the
Bulldog, which has aiv-average width of
five feet. It Is porphyry, heavily shot
with manganese, and lies between
granite walls. Several cross veins in
tersect It. These veins are from one
to two feet wide. AH have the ap
pearance of being true fault fissures
and' it is believed that great ore bodies
On the surface the Bulldog vein
averages $10 a ton in gold, while the
cross fissures run from $5 to $10.
Values increase steadily with depth
wherever any work has been done.
The deepest shaft is down 112 feet
on the Bulldog vein. From this level
300 feet of drifts have been run. Sam
ples were taken across a five foot face
in one of the drifts and they gave re
turns of $30.20 a ton.
"In my opinion the Bulldog is a
great gold dissemination, the same as
the Ray mine is a great copper disse
mination," said Mr. Carney. "The gold
is there, but it Is going to be hard
work to locate the main bodies."
An Important problem at the Bulldog
Is that of water supply. If the bond
holders decide to exercise their optiou.
mey will lay a pipe line irom Salt
river, eight miles north, and pump wa
ter to the property for a reduction
plant and camp purposes.
The electric transmission line from
the Roosevelt dam to Phoenix runs
close to the Bulldog This line will be
tapped and electn. lty used for power

Boston, llasa., Jan. 29. It is be
lieved the most important developments
in the copper mining industry In 1913
will not be in the line of the develop
ment of new properties, but in the re

to replace old plants and bring about
economies in operation.
New production this year is bound
to be limited, it is es-gued, to a few
propertties, already large producers
which did not reach their maximum
output in 1912.
After these properties have reached
their maximum production this vear
and next, the question of new and in

those now in the making are in pros-:
