Arizona Mines Make Record In 1913
Leads All Copper States
In Production For Year
Gold, Silver, Lead and Zinc
All Show Substantial
tASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. S.
In 1913 there was a recora
mine production of gold, silver,
.pi or. lead and sine in Ariaona, ac
, .rdip to preliminary figure of V.
. Ifei'c.s, of the United States Oeolog
iral survey. The total value of the
mi ne output was about $71,000,000, an
ir.r-iea&e of nearly 6 percent over the
,ue of 1912, which was 567.050.VS4.
The copper output was valued at near
I $64,000,000: the gold at about $3,
MS.iiOO: the silver at more than $,
263,000; the lead at $612,000, and the
zinc at $510,000.
The mine yield of gold in Arizona
in 1913 was more than 191,000 ounces,
an increase of 5 percent over the out
put of 1912, which was 181.996.91 fine
ounces. Of this total, over 42 percent
was taken from siliceous ores and
most of the remainder came from cop
per ores, which are undoubtedly the
source of the increased gold output
In 1913. The three largest producing!
gold mines were the Tom Reed, Gold
TCn&ds and Vulture. The Tom Reed
output was about the same as In 191.4,
the Gold Roads had a slight increase,
and the Vulture a substantial increase.
In Yuma county operations were re
sumed at the La Fortuna mine.
Silver Shown Increase.
The mine production of silver In
creased about elight percent, amount
ing to more than 3.773,000 ounces,
against 3,490.387 ounces In 1912. "Most
of the silver was derived from copper
ore, but in 1918 the increase is due
largely to shipments of lead ore and
concentrates from Cochise and Mo
have counties. Much silver also comes
from siliceous ore. About 500 tons ot
ore per month was shipped from the
Tombstone property and a large ton
nage of old tailing was taken from
the Commonwealth dump. A 350 ton
cyanide mill at this property was com
pleted during the year.
Leadn All In Copper.
With a mine production ol about
414,593.000 pounds of copper in lSlo,
Arizona led all other copper producing
states. The output in 1913 stows an
increase of more than 49.000.000
pounds, or about 12 percent over that
of 1912, which was 365,038,649 pounds.
As the price of copper was sltghtiy
lower in 1913, the value of the metal
increased only about $3,600,000.
There were 11 active copper-smelting
plants in the state, and ore and
concentrate were also sent to six cop
per and lead plants in other states.
Of the former, the greatest increases
in output were made at the Harden.
Calumet & Arizona, Copper Queen, Old
Dominion, Consolidated Arizona and
Swansea plants. At the United Verde
and Detroit plants there was little
change from the figures of 1912.
Those making less copper were the
Shannon. Arizona Copper and Pioneer
New plants were completed by the
Arizona Copper and Calumet & Ari
zona companies, and another was in
course of construction for United
Verde ores. The disseminated copper
mines in Gila, pinal and Greenlee
counties yielded approximately 146,
600.000 pounds of copper. Included in
this estimate of copper produced are
the outputs of the Miami, Ray, Arizona
Copper and Detroit mines. The Miam
product did not greatly exceed that Oi
isn The 3000 ton concentration plant
was act ive and the product went inoct
lv to Cananea. Mexico. The Interna
tional Smelting & Refining Co., will
build a cdpper plant at Miami to treat
this ore and that from the Inspiration
mine. Test plants using the flotation
process were operated at Miami and
Inspiration, as the saving by concen
tration alone is not sufficient.
Ray Increases Output Greatly.
The Ray Consolidated Copper Co.,
greatly increased its output, from
nearly 36,000,000 pounds of copper in
1912 to about 52,000,000 pounds in 1913,
treating 6000 tons of ore per day
Production from Tuma and Pima
counties was not what it could have
been, since the Swansea and Piceer
plants were operated only a iew
months. At Globe greatly increased
shipments were made from the Super
ior & Boston, Iron Cap, and Black
Warrior mines, and in Pinal county
from the Magma mine.
With an increase of more than 104
percent the 'mine production . of lead
was greater than in any other year.
The total output was nearly 14,000,
000 pounds, valued at about $612,000.
as against 6,806,443 pounds, valued at
$306.20 in 1912. The mines at Bisbee
...!. 1aJ Aa aMt I. 1013
there was a large increase. The Sltat- j
tuck mine became a regular producer
of silver-lead ore as well as copper
ore. In Mohave county an Increaseit
tonnage was shipped regularly from
the Tennessee mine to the concentra
tion plant at Needles, California.
Half Million la Spelter.
The mine, production of recoverable
spelter was about 9.100,000 pounds,
valued at $JS10,000, which was an in
crease of about 340,000 pounds, or
nearly 4 percent over the production
of 1912. On account of the lower prHe
paid for the metal, the total value
decreased more than $90,000 The Gol
conda mine, in Mohave county, former
ly the largest producer, was making
shipments of zinc ore and concentrates
only part of the year, and therefore
had a greatly decreased output. Much
ore was, however, shipped from the
San Xavier mine in Pima county and
much concentrate was made from Mo
have county ores milled at Needles.

by Michigan. Montana and Alaska, and
notable increases by Arizona, Utah and
Smelter Production Less.
The figures showing smelter produc
tion from domestic ores, which have
been collected by B. S. Butler, of the
geological survey, represent the actual
yoduction of most of the companies for
11 months and an estimate of the De
cember output. .The November figures
for a few companies were not availa
ble and these companies furnished es
timates for the last two months of the
year. According to the statistics and
estimates received, the output of blis
ter and lake copper was 1,223,700,000
pounds in 1913, against 1,243,268,720
pounds in 1912.
At an average price of about 16.3
cents a pound the 1913 output has a
value of about $187,200,000. against
$205,139,338 for the 1912 output.
More Refined Copper.
Preliminary statistics showing the
output of refined copper are not col
lected by the geological survey. Fig
ures published by the Copper Pro
ducers' association show an output of
1,483,480,408 pounds for the first 11
months of 1913 and indicate that the
production of marketable copper by
the regular refining plants from ajl
sources, domestic and foreign, will
amount to 1,618.000,000 pounds for
1913, if the December output is equal to
the average for the first 11 months.
This compares with 1,588,104,478 pounds
Imports Were IiCsh.

started active operations on a large
scale. If the ore on the properties of
the Calumet & Arizona Mining com

same company contemplates making
heavy purchases of' mining lands in that
section and commence operations
shortly. The ore is practically all a

the first 10 months amounted to 246,
785,319 pounds and the copper content
of ore, matte and regulus imported
amounted to 88,306,732 pounds of the
imports for November and December
were equal to the average monthly im
ports for the first 10 months the
amount of copper entering the United
States for the year was about 492,000,
000 pounds, against 410,240,286 pounds
for 1912. Considerable of the coppev
imported as blister had been previously
exported as ore or concentrates.
Exports Show Increase.
Estimates based on figures published
by the bureau of statistics and also by
the .Copper Producers association in
dicate that the exports of copper for
1913 will show a marked increase over
those for 1912 and may equal 866,000,
000 pounds. ...
Stocks Considerably Less.
Stocks of refined copper held in the
United States January 1, 1914, are con
siderably less than on January I, ij13
Foreign stocks also show a considera
Statistics published by the Copper
Producers' association show the domes
tic deliveries for the first 11 months
of the year as 745,323,190 pounds, indi
cating no marked change in consump
tion from 1912, for which the Pro
ducers' association reported domestic
deliveries of 819,665,948 pounds.
Prices Are Lower.
The average quoted price of electro
lytic copper for the year showed a de
crease over that for 1912. The average
for 1913 was about 15.3 cents a pound,
compared with 16.48 cents a pound for
Arizona Still Lead.
For 1913 Arizona, with a record
itroduction, continues in first piacfe
among the copper producing states. The
production for 1913 will greatly exceed
the 359,322.000 pounds produced In 1912
and may exceed 400,000,000 pounds. The
Bisbee district will show a large in
crease over the 140,000,000 pounds of
blister copper produced in 1912, the
output probably reaching nearly 160,
000.000 pounds In 1913.
The Morenci-Metcalf district will not
equal the 79,900,000 pounds produced
In 1912, hut the 1913 output will doubt
less exceed 70.000,000 pounds.
The Globe-Miami district will show
an increase of several million pounds
over the 61.600,000 pounds produced In
1912. The Mineral Creek, or Ray dis
trict made a large increase, the output
for 1913 being approximately 50.000,
000 pounds, compared with 35,000,000
pounds for 1912.
The output of the Jerome district will
probably exceed the 1912 production of
31.680.000 pounds by a few million
Chlno Jlelpn New Mexico,
The production of blister copper from
New Mexico increased largely over
that of 1912, owing to the increased
production of the Chlno Copper com
pany, of the Santa Rita district The
output of copper in concentrates by the
Chlno company for the first three
quarters of the year was over 39,000,000
pounds, indicating a production for the
year of over 50,000,000 pounds.

mining men are making estimates of
how far the principal properties of
the county will exceed the production1
of 1913 during the present year.
Improvements and additions at the

$100,000 in gold output It is believed
that the Tom Reed will produce no
less than $1,300,000 during 1914.
