the'lllack Copper, which is situat
ed about six miles up the river from
the town of lied River:
"The Black Copper, owned by
the Taos Gold Mining & Mi'ling
company. Four years ago quite a
stir was created by finding nch
free jold ore in a well defined tia
sure vein at the depth of thirty-Sve
feet. At the point whore the gold
was opened the vein was throe and
one-half feet wide and the rich por
tion one and one-half inches wide.

I owners have continued to stir the

' little of this streak has materialized.
This vein is still there and shows
occasional rich npots aud altogether
averages two and ono half feet
worth' ?2o gold per ton. At this
time the company is building a
ten-stamp mill and have it about
ready to commence operating.

fashion that it is not possible to

Uowover. there is a largo amount f
of broken up vein matter on the
surface, much of it high grade, that
should be taken into account as ovi

leads, which ure covered to some
extent with wash or slide. In min
im' on this mountain 3oo to ooo
feet depth could be gained by tun

mountain is abrupt in the vicinity
of the vein exposure. The sxtf'ace
indications justify great expecta

might be accomplished in a bison's
work and at no great cost.
