. A great deal of InUrest is now baing
takes in the prospecting in the Grant!
Canyon of tba Colorado. It ha beast
known for many years that rich veins
ailsted there, the outcropping being
plainly teen in tbe faces of the cliff.
There are now about SO men operat
ing claims there. Tbe cliffs are very
steep and tbe operators are building
trails down their fare to reach the
claims wblcb show below. Iu one
place they have made it trail three
feet wide at a Miint where the preci
pice is nearly 800 feet high, making a
station 011 tlin vein. They uroitose
to follow the vein about 100 feet iu
from lliu face of the ell lis and then
iipiaUu to the sui face. They think
thai the vein goes much nearer to the
htu face than the point where it shows,
and will store the ore they may take
out In stations, dumping the waste
into the emboli, and when they reach
the suifacu will widen the trail and
build a tramway to raise llie ore. At
80111H points in the canyon it is possible
to build a load near the bottom which
will Iiaq nu outlet six or eight miles
down the river. Eventually this road
will he built iind then all the 01 e will
lie Ioueied with a tram. It is a big
Mhino, but lliuoiu is licli enough to
wat 1 nut it, nnd no doubt It will
eventually succeed. Pick and Drill.
