The promoters of the Kirk wood mine

well defined ledge of fully eight feet was
apparent. Preliminary work prepara
tory to sinking will begin immediately.

The recently acquired property, un

has a full force at work as usual. The
new east shaft is going dowa at the
rate of about ninety feet a . month.
This is considered to be rapid progress.
Nothing especially new has occurred
at the Peerless mine since our last issue.
Superintendent Ogborne continues to
find indications, -which he considers re
liable, of a large, body of ore lower
down. It has been suggested by one of
the directors of the company that Bur
leigh drills be substituted for hand
drilling, and the matter is under ad
Central Eureka— Batter Creek.
. Superintendent Thomas continues to
find the encouragement in the Central
Eureka that foretells the necessity, for
a mill, and that right speedily. It has
been suggested that another run of ore
be made at the Zeila mill, but we are
not advised as to the probable decision
of the management relative thereto.
The proposition of opening the Alta
ite mine is still in abeyance so far as we
are informed, but we understand that
the enterprise is quietly going forward
and will eventually result in a thorough
exploration of the property.
Under the able management of Supt.
W. F. Detert, the venerable Zeila mine
is as regular as a clock. A full force of
men are at work in the mine and the
forty stamps .unceasingly continue to
grind exceedingly fine. Long live the
Good Hope— Jackson.
The unused, machinery of the Good
Hope mine stands as a silent sentinel at
the mouth of the shaft, guarding, as
many believe, untold wealth below.
When the owners of this mine intend
to go down for that wealth is a ques
tion not generally known in this camp,
or, at least, not generally talked about.
We hope to see a move made pretty
Rocket Mining Co. (Formerly Pioneer )
It is reported that the old Pioneer
mine, four miles above Volcano, is to
be reopened by T. J. Brandon, Byron
Jennings and Colonel Dickenson, who
have incorporated a company and are
now disposing of stock (so we are in
formed) in San Francisco and San Jose.
Spagnoli Mine— Wieland.

Messrs. Cox & Heydenfeldt of San
Francisco are at Wieland testing a new
gold -saving machine, not yet patented,
with the view of taking it to Cape
Nome. The experiments already
made indicate that they have the Ipng
looked-for and devoutedly wished-for
apparatus. At least, so says a corres
pondent from Wieland.
Lincoln— Sutter Creek.
' The 500 foot south crosscut in the
Lincoln mine has been extended twenty
six feet, making the total distance from
the shaft 236 feet. Little stringers of
quartz were encountered in the face of
the crosscut carrying sulphurate. It
resembles the north crosscut at a point
close to the vein channel, and probably
within a few days the vein channel will
be encountered. This crosscut and the
1200 have l-ecently been surveyed pre
paratory to securing blue prints for the
inspection of those interested. The
crosscut west from the 1200 foot level
has been extended fort j -feet, making
the total distanco from the shaft ninety
four feet. The material in the face of
the crosscut is a soft, gray slate with
an easterly pitch, about the average
pitch of the Mother Lode through this
section. As long as the ground con
tinues as it is now good headway will
be made in this crosscut.
EL DORADO COUNTY.
Nugget: The Minnehaha mine has
fifteen men at -work and a four-stamp
mill running night and day, the rock
paying over $20 a ton. This mine was
only started up last fall. It is the de
sire of the lessees to build a twenty-five
stamp mill to crush the large body of
paying ore which it produces. The
success of this mine is due to the enter
prise of that veteran miner Col.. Frank
Staples who has stuck to this property
although told time and again it was
We are informed through a reliable
source that the Starlight mine has
struck a rich chute of ore. It is being
taken out and will be crushed in their
ten-stamp mill as soon as the ditches can
be repaired from winterbreaks and wood
secured to run the mill. When this is
done a force of. about thirty-five or
forty men will be put on. The board
ing-house is kept by Miss Phoebe Pal
latt who understands thoroughly the
art of catering to the appetites of the
hungry men. In our next we will
speak of the other mines we visited.
E. Bind, superintendent of the Blue
Gouge, came up from San Francisco last
night after a visit with his family. He
reports that Mr. Parker of Boston,
who is interested in the Bliige Gouge,
is expected out soon. The company
contemplates putting up a twenty
stamp mill in addition to the Hunting
ton now in operation.
Republican: Virgil Wise and Gus
W. Wulff think that they have a bo
nanza. It is a placer proposition.
Their mine is on Mr. Wise's place
north of the Coloma road in White
Oak Flat. They have taken out some
nuggets. • ' ,
The Union Mining Company are
building a ten-stamp mill to work rock
from a ledge owned by them in the
vicinity of the Union mine, but too far
from the mill already on that property
to be crushed to advantage In it.
Independent: O'Hara and MacKen
zie have a promising combination pock
et and milling ledge in the Experimen
tal gulch district, near Columbia. It
is a strong, true fissure vein, averaging
in width from one to three feet, and
from which some fine rock has been
taken out during the short time active
work has been under way. The claim
is known as the Anaconda and is no
disgrace to its famous Montana name
The Vine Spring in the same locality
as the Densmore, and an extremely
promising property, is lying idle at
present, though indications point to
resumption of operations at an early
date. . At the time of hanging up,
several months ago, there was plenty
of fine rock in . sight in the various
workings, but the mill couldn't save
the gold in the heavily sulphuretted
ore, so a discontinuance was made com
pulsory until negotiations could be
completed for giving the rebellious
material special treatment. Taken as
an all-around proposition the Vine
Spriug is considered by experts — prac
tical and technical — as being one of the
best prospects in the county for a good
big mine. ' • .
At the Golden Era both north and
south drifts will be extended, each at
present having an approximate length
along the ledge of 150 feet. The mine
was- opened up by means of a crosscut
tunnel which tapped the quartz after
being driven 200 feet. It was consid
ered one of the banner producers of
the Columbia district in years gone by,
having yielded over $30,000 from a
comparatively small amount of ground.
The rock crushed yielded from $3 to
$100 per ton in free gold ore— or an
average for everything between walls
of $15 per ton — no sulphurets being
saved.' The vein varies from one to
five, feet wide. The mine Is owned by
Conlin & Pownall and is equipped with
a five-stamp mill. Water to drive the
latter and for other purposes is receiv
ed free and in abundance from Five
Mile creek. In mining circles the
Golden Era is rated as first-class prop
* From all accounts the Phoenix mine,
owned by F. W. Reynolds and located on
the Bolar ranch, some six miles from
Sonora, is destined at an early day to
take rank as among the best along
either of the great lodes. We have
seen some of the rock taken from the
main shaft at a depth of sixty feet and
it is certainly good ore. Average sam
ples submitted to Selby's and other
reputable concerns gave returns from
free gold and sulphurets per ton of
$26 to $30. The vein is at present
eight feet wide, all hard quartz and in
a superior formation. The free gold is
outclassed by that contained in the re
bellious matter, the latter being good
for three per cent, of concentrates
worth about $520 per ton. It is said
that a ten-stamp mill is soon to be
placed on the property.
The friction wheels of the hoist hav
ing broken at the Rising Sun - mine,
sinking the shaft has been suspended
untill new wheels can be put In place.
In the mean time miners are extracting
ore from the upper levels. A new
plunger pump has been ordered for
this mine, the present depth being too
far to pump water with a jack head.
The Rising Sun will start up in a few
There are about seventy miners em

men. The reason for this snspcii -ion
of work is not known. Nearly a ytar
ago Genera) Manager Buckminster
visited the property and arranged for
extensive development work. In order
to complete this work it \ was necessary
to purchase a larger hoist and power
drills were recommended. Instruc
tions were given for the purchase of a
hoist, air-comprsssor with necessary
machinery, and .an addition of twenty
stamps to the mill. By reason of de
lay in receiving electrical machinery,
several months beyond the time speci
fied in the contracts, the plant has not
yet been completed. In the meantime
work has been continued with the old
machinery until the main "or No. 1
shaft has reached a depth of 800 feet
and levels run, opening out the ore
shoot, to a depth of 600 feet. No. 7
and No. 8 levels have yet to be opened.
Superintendent E. A. Hardy left this
week for Boston to consult with the
general future work.
The Mack Consolidated Gold Mining
Company are getting excellent results
from their mines at Big Oak Flat.
The property consists of the Mack and
Wooten mines, on the same vein'as the
now . celebrated Longfellow. The
vein rnns east and west and dips north
and is quite flat, lying at an angle of
about thirty-five degrees. On the
Mack property it is developed by an in
cline shaft 430 feet deep. The vein has
been well opened by having levels run
every 100 feet and shows up a large ex
tent of ore that will pay to mill.
Scattered through the nvlling ore are
rich bunches of high grade often
showing "more gold than rock." It
is an open secret that an important
development has been made of good
grade milling rock at the 400 level.
The company have a 75-horse power
boiler and latest Improved hoist on the
way to the mine and it is their inten
tion 'to remodel the present incline
shaft and sink to a depth of 1200 feet
or more, when a large mill will be
erected near the mine, as it has been
demonstrated by tests that the entire
vein will pay to mill. Tho mine is
under the able superintendency of
Charles L. Lang and it is the general
opinion that it has a bright future.
At the Harvard miue underground
development work is progressing rap
idly on both No. 5 and No. 7 levels
through No. . 2 shaft. The work of
sinking No. 1 shaft below No. 2 level
has been commenced and also raising
from No. 5 level to connect with the
same, as it is the intention to hoist a
large portion of the milling ore
through this shaft direct to the mill
plant. The 60-stamp mill is nearing
completion and Superintendent Munger
hopes to begin dropping stamps by
At the Dreisam mine the new electric
plant which furnishes lights for tho
surface works was started up last
week and gives satisfaction. In the
mine the west- crosscut* on No. 2 level
has reached the Ophir vein. The fis
sure is six feet wide and contains two
feet of high grade quartz. At this
point drifting north and south on the
vein has begun. Tho Dreisam mill is
running steadily on ore from stopes on
the Yellow Jacket vein. »
Prospect: Work at the electric
plant and at the Utica possessions
above town is being awaited with pa
tience. So little is doing that every
body is watting for something to turn
up, or for the coming of an awakening
boom. Anything to let loose the busy
bee of industry. Mitchlar's Last
Chance, west of town, is coming to the
front with a most remarkable incident.
Recently a large cave took place in the
old shaft whereby a large vein of good
quartz was brought to viow -fully ten
feet in width. Formerly ore milled
from this mine went ten or twelve dol
lars per ton, but the vein was only a
few inches wide. Now tons can be se
cured. If it only averages one-half its
former richness the mine will be a big
bonanza, to be sure.
The Big Horn, at San Domingo, is
prosecuting work quietly and prompt
ly. Some little prospecting is being
done at present in the hills east. of
Murphys. Though no good discover
ies have been made it is conceded to be
a likely section. This ridge in the past
has been somewhat neglected by the
mine-hunters. All the ridges north
and south of this one have one or more
good claims on them. W. J. Hackett
brought down from Flanders' ranch
last Sunday a sample of peculiar look-
Ing ore which, it is said, will go about
$3 to the ton.
W. B. Lake ia still pushing work on
a small scale at the Eho placers. A
company has recently been formed and
it is their intention to do much'devel
opment work in the near future.
There is no doubt but the old river
channel runs through old Mable Moun
tain. From recent work it looks as
though Mr. Lake is on the right track
and chasing the proper gold deposits.
The Santa Anna mine, which has
been idle since last October, is soon to
be started up with a full force of men.
The main shaft on this property has
already reached a depth of 700 feet, so
that a large force of men can now be
employed to advantage. The bad
weather of the early part of
the winter main has been one of the
causes of delay. With fine weather
assured for the future, the prospect of
development is good.
The St. Lawrence mine started
Thursday of this week to pump out the
water and as soon as this work Is done
the programme is to drift both ways
from the shaft on the lead. .
W. D. Riley of Murphys was In town
this week, and reports that he has
recently bonded his mine on the Stan
islaus river to some San Francisco
parties. This mine is bound to be one
of the gold producers in the near fu
ture. There is an eight-foot ledge,
yielding $8.15 to the ton in free gold.
There is a sixty-foot tunnel on the
mine and a shaft of twenty feet in
depth. It is expected that the water
will be all out of the Union Copper, at
Copperopolis by the 17th inst. They
have now reduced it to within forty
feet of the bottom.
Reports from the Sheep Ranch mine
are very encouraging and those who
have seen the rock that is now coming
from the lower levels pronounce it very
rich free milling. A fine twenty-stamp
mill is now crushing the quartz and
there la every presumption that the
mine will again take its place as one of
the best paying propositions In the
county. Some heavy machinery is
now being made at the Jackson foundry
and preparations are being made to
take power from the Utica electric
plant above Murphys.
Chronicle: Encouraging reports
come from the Lucas mine, now known
as the Calaveras Gold mine. The mine
is located near the Mokelumne river,
about a mile from this place, and now
being operated by C. F. Percy, C. D.
Coran and Sydney Smith. About
$20,000 has lately been expended in
improvements, a new compressed air
plant has been installed and the mill
has been newly equipped and started to
work on ore from the lower tunnel,
which has been driven in 400 feet, mak
ing in all 700 feet. With its free
and plentiful supply of water the new
owners of the Lucas property are now
mining and milling for the remarkably
small cost of $1 a ton.
