The Franklin Lead and 'Anc Com

met this week, commenced drilling a
tnifli of land they have secured from
E. A. Crcwson, in section 2, townihip

at. thU is considered one of the best
mineral locations in central Missouri,
and mineral men and geologists who
have visited tills section, have been
unanimous in pronouncing suctions 20
aiu! '.'1 ilrst-olass mining properly and
especially that part secured by the
New Vol It people. The traelt they will
drill has produced about fifty thous
and pounds of first class lead ore,
which lias been follo.v.-d down to a
depth of over forty feet, no deep min
ing has been done, hut there is every
reason to believe I hat the immense
deposits of both lead and zinc will tie
found in deeper ground. The ore al
ready produced, was mined by "sur
face gophers" who had but the crudest
tools and were, only looking for the
"clay"' or "surface" ores. Enough of
this ore was found at one time in the
county to keep ten smelteis running.
iSut little surface mining is now being
done, as a class of men are now com
ing who believe in going down for the
deeper and larger deposits.
