FOR TREATING GOLD ORE
New Process Discovered by a
MINING - EXPEBTS - IBTEEXSTED.
Experiments Carried ffaa the BImek
II 11 la fcr Dr. Oardeav Iroai mm Other
Metals extracted Frssi the Ores hy
the Vse of Pswcrfsl Massrt
Dr. J. A. Ogden of Philadelphia has
made a discovery In ore treatment that
Is destined to revolutionize the present
methods for extracting the precious
metals from the rock. The inventor
has been working on bis process for
years, and be has now perfected it to
such a degree that by actual tests be
Is able to treat 00 per cent of the ores
of the Black Hills, says the Chicago
Record. Ills process is so simple tbat
It Is a wonder that the principle has
not oeen put to work years ago. He
has a small plant In successful opera
tion near Dead wood, S. D., which is
being visited by mining men from all
parts of the country.
Dr. Ogden has worked at bis plant
for a year or more, keeping his secrets
to himself. His process, briefly, is this:
He has a 20 horsepower engine, a 100
light electric dynamo and a roaster.
The ore Is pulverized to a fine mesh,
fed on to the upper end of the roaster,
which is nothing more than a loug
piece of sheet Iron at an incline, under;
rhich a fire is built and screened
through an 80 mesh. The ore is then
carried to the magnetic separator. The '
powdered ore drops on to a wide belt.
across which there are three narrow
belts running at right angle. Above
each narrow belt there is a powerful
magnet, wmcu is maue anve vy trie .
electricity generated In the dynamo.
The ore, which contains a large per
cent of irou.v passes along under the
magnets, which quickly pick up every :
grain of Iron, drawing it against the
belts which run crosswise with the
wide belt. As soon as the Iron is ear
rled out of the magnetic field, a dis-
tance of ten inches from the wide belt,
it is all dropped and falls into a bin.
There Is left on the wide belt nothing
but sand and the gold or other values.
The process is Intended to take out of
the ore all the Iron or other magnetic
metals, which are usually a detriment
to the successful reduction of the ore.
It Is estimated that 00 per cent of the
ore in the Black Hills is pyrltic, or. in
other words, carries Iron. The ore in
the Homestake mine contains from SO
to CO per cent. Dr. Ogden will do this
with the Homestake ore: He will take
It from the mine, pulverize it to an 80
mesh and run it through the magnetic
belts. All cf the iron will be taken
out say 80 per cent to the ton. That
would leave 'JO per cent sand and gold.
equal to 400 pounds to the ton. Five
tons of raw ore can then be concen
trated Into one ton of sand and values.
The Iron being out of tbe ore, the sand
and values can be run over tbe amal
gamating plates, and practically all of
the gold will be canght by the quick
silver. This eliminating of the iron
from the Homestnke ore would mean
the saving of several hundred thou
sand dollars' worth of gold every year.
Dr. Ogden has put down on paper a
guarantee that he can save 9100,000 a
year for the company.
There are millions and millions of
tons of ore iu the, Black Hills tbat have
a value of f-'! to a ton gold. Most of
these ores contain 50 per cent or more
of iron. The Ogden process will elimi
nate all of the Iron and make It possi
ble to put from one to ten tons, by con
centration, into tone. By n chemical
process, known only to Dr. Ogden, he
will take the product from bis magnet
ic belts and extract the values for 00
cents per ton. To separate the iron
from the product will cost less than 25
cents per ton. The claim of the Og
den process is that It will extract the
values from 'JO per cent of the Black
Hills ores for less than f 1 per ton. Tbe
pyrltic ores are made magnetic by
passing them through tbe roaster,
which drives off about 10 per cent of
the sulphur, thus making the Iron pre-
dominate, when it becomes magnetic.
Since the first announcement of the
success of the Ogden process, the ex
perimental plant has been visited by
the mining experts from ail parts of
the country, and tbe large mining com
panies have kept their experts at tbe
plant Investigating its merits. It is
believed by those who have examined
into the principle and its application
tbat the process is destined to revolu
tionize the present methods of treating
ores In tbe world. Dr. Ogden has made
a great many tests on ores from Colo
rado, th sands of the sea coast, tbe
gold sands from Snake river. In Idaho,
and from New Mexico, and he has met
with great success In every tesL
A company is being organized in
Dead wood to erect plants, first la tbe
Black Hills and afterward in other min
ing districts. Dr. Ogden. tbe Inventor.

Pennsylvania and has been a practic

Now that tbe automobile la coming

direction bavc already been taken in
