Over Ftve MHlloa Dollars' Worth of
Load and Zinc Orea Prodaeed. and Al
most Four Million Dollars Worth of Coal
The sixth annual report of the min
ing industries of the state for the year
ended June 30t 1893, has been completed
by Mr. C. C. Woodson, state mine in
spector, and submitted to the labor
From a recapitulation of its atatiitlcal tables
tbe fact Is made manifest that in no period of
tbe state's history baa tte mining industries
developed so much activity or experienced such
an era of prosperity as daring the year just
closed, and present indications point to a
continuance of lik arratifyina; results. While
tbe votnme of business, both in tonnage and
receipts from same, has been largely increased,
yet tbe average prices received for the product
shows a tmall decrease from those obtained
during; th preceding year. Miners have been
In demand in most of the mining districts, and
tbe relations existing between operators and
miners have in tbe main been most harmonious,
with no acta of violence or towlessaeaa reported
fmm any section.
Tbe report shows large Increased productions
of coal, lead ore and sine ore, while that of h-on
shows a slight decrease, compared with th
year preceding. There are l.HI mines of all
kinds in tbe state, with total receipts from the
various industries represented by the same,
showing as fo'Iowa:
From lead and zinc ores SR.fln.A0l AS
From coal 3,F3i.W H
From iron 234.006 68
Amounting in all to $9,119,939 77
Th Increased production from coal, lead,
ore and zinc ore amounts In value to $6ft",428
over the year preceding. Tbe average numbar
of men employed at tbe mines is 14.30 which
number, basel on a moderate ratio of four to
one. gives a population of 57.3fl0 perwns direct
ly dependent upon the mining industries of
the state for a livelihood. There occurred dar
ing the year 59 non-fatal and 38 fatal accidents,
the latter causing SI wives to be mad widows
and AT children to become fatherless, with 1 life
lost to every 401 men employed.
The coal Industry has steadily lncreasd year
after year, but th In- res a? for the year just
dosed is far in advance of any previous record.
Tne output is shown to he 3,017.285 ton, and
the proceeds from th same amount to $3,825.
A." ST. For tbe past three years the increase in
the cost product baa averagsd a gain of 218.
Oni) tons one year over tbe other, while the in
crease for this last year exceeds its predeces
sor 367,267 tons. Tbe averag price reezlved
per ton at the mines for coal during the year
has boon $1,268. a decrease compared with the
previous year of 4 4-5c per ton. The coal prod
uct is reported from 451 mines, larg) and small,
rcattred among thirty-fonr counties, with an
average 8.060 men employed Tbe accidents
occurring number 41 non -fatal and 20 fatal,
with an averag of 15D.AR4 tons of coal mined
for each life lost. There wore 21 newmin-s
opened up. not including smill ones, and 10
min" worked out and abandoned. The fol
lowing is a list of counties producing coal, ar

In the lead and zinc industries astonishing
progress bas been mado notwithstanding seri
ous obstacles were encountered, especially In
the southwestern portion of the state, result
ing from extraordinary rains during tbe spring
months, which greatly delayed work. Theal
ready large output wonld have been much in
creased but for tb s trouble, Jasper county
leads in the total value, or rather actual
amount received for Its product, with a total
forlead and sine of $2.946. 477.31. This ounty
baa made a large increase In both lead ore ani

r-coipts b-ing SCUM SI Thi output ot sine
amounts to ) per cent, of tbe entire sine prod
uct of tbe state.
