MINES OF THE GRAND CANYON.
A New Copper District Eioher Than
the Lake Superior Region.
J. II. McCIlntock Visits the Field and
Describes It la Detail "Among
the nicheat and Moat Tie
xnarkable of Arizona."
James H. .McCIIotock, thn wcll
kanwn nowspnper man of Phoenix,
visited the Grand Canyon copper dis
ti iet Inst month and gives the fol
lowing as his Impressions of this new
Crossing the northern portion of.Ar
irtmu lies the far-fa mod Canyon of the
Colorado river the Grand Canyon
pre-eminent, Incomparable, the
grandest gash known on the face of
nature, where rocks are riven to the
depth. of 7,000 feet from the surface
ami where for hundreds of miles the
strata are exposed far deeper than in
any mine on earth. It is the ideal re
gion for the prpspector, for Naturo has
already done tiie "dovelopraent work"
on thn claims that hu may discover
and locate. Arizona throughout is
'mineralized" to an extent unknown
prolmlily to nny other country. It Is
therefore logical that the erosion of the
river's clutnnel has exposed many rich
ledges of the precious ores, for many
years successfully nil pud l Other parts
of the Southwest.
I speiitpur weeksfpf May and June
of the current year among' the mines
oflhe Grand Canyon district. The
conrr mine I believe are among" the
ru'l Ost and moyt remarkable of Ari
z ilia mid I penk from art experience
fiat, embraces Investigation of all the
other copper camp of the Territory.
JIot uiitnbUf of i ht Canyon district
minis are those which lie on or near (
. ta i.
the Can von V southern' rim. 'For n'
dislnnco of about fifteen miles souili
and for forty miles along the line of
the Canyou the country limestone,
carboiilferons iir character, bear'reop-
per and lrou in apprteiablo quantities.
From the evidence of the prospeetnrx
and my own observations.! tvnnli say
that the really vnlunblo portion of
J t'ti.-i iaimooso deposit is about three
riiik'!J in width jitiil ut least fifieeu
'miles in length, the length being from
uorih to south. . .
This copper'tHstrici on the southern
rim U modern iudeed. The Hint loca
catiotisof anyjmpoiUnce were made
lust Oi'tobet1. There" was even more
tiiHti the usuui excltcmeut over new
finds when thn specimens fouud were
exhibited and the cold and suqyv of the
jui-ceediug winter months did not pre
vent the sinking of, , more than 200
cluiins. Little more ilmn the statutory
a'Sessment work has been done ou au
of tlieui and the. deepest workiugs at
tlia lll0 of my departure were down
6aly thirty-live feet. That far down
the pro preserved uniformity of char
acter Bud richness.
In character the ores are carbonates,
black and red oxides,., handsome ores,
mainly 'of the azurite and malachite
varieties. They are found only where
the' limestone has been disturbed
through seismic action, and never
Where the regular stratification of the
region remains undisturbed: They are
Id variably closely associated with the
limestone and run high iu Iron, form
ing' an ore that carries to the smelter
lU own flux. The percentages of cop
per run high. 4 JiaVe seeu many large
s'.'edtuens that exceeded, 60 per ceut.
(rood authorities state that the average
of the ores piled up ou the dumps of
the district will exceed 20 per cent.
Tills is 400 pounds of metal to the ion.
Tue ores of the Lake, Superior region
are worked with profit wheu they run
down to sixteen pounds to the ton
of ore. ,
Aa'to quantity: ,Tue ore lies hori
eonUlly, or nearly so, and no man of
coarse can tell whether, the' strata so
far exposed are urijWjald with others.
But to-day. on the'ilump, of one com
pany alone (the Tilsyu Development
company of whlchj Lombard. Goode &
Co., of Chicago. jKew York and Lon
don are tiie, Eastern representatives
ami duancial agents) are several thou
sand tons of ore Uken out in simple
assessment and surface development
work and tens of thousands more tons
are exposed In the cuts and tunnel,.
and drifts. It would be a rich disrict
worthy of capital hik of reduction
works. If the ore Wiles were no deeper
than they have ill ready been developed.
But there is uo ijouht that the great
est riches of the district are at even
greater1 depths. I-believe that in the
district will yet be (lie deepest work
ings known to miners anywhere ou the
face of the globe. The cupper Is with
out doubt eruptive In Its deposition.
It has been vomited from the depths of
the earth, and found lodgment in the
liven limn and Sandstone rocks, spread
ing out, branch-like, from the cleft of
the priucipal eruptions, where now of
course are to be '.found the mother
lodes. Then Nature; with her iron,
lime and oxygen, leached off the sul
phur. Perhaps Hi is will account for
the presence In the, nenr vicinity of
immense beds of sulphate of lime,
This eruptive tbebiy is carried out
on Inspection of the mines of the Can-
oil's depths. I found three mother
lodes'' of copper at depths that are al
moHt startling. Tlie highest in alii-
tude h I he Ilogait claim of the Tusayan
ciimpany, iiiiislderedJjy tho company's
manager, Gen. V.iO. (VNelll. to be

'J'liu Cameron- mine, twenty miles
up the the, river, Is one of'liie.ilrst dis
covered and has beej worked for
years. It has a de)ith of 2,200 feet
from, the rim. The ores vary, though
mainly chaly-pj rite. They assay op
(o 72 per ceut. of metal aud average
Ihioughoiit very high.
Tho third ledge of copper ore was
nt tho very bottom of the Canyon, in
the primeval granltu, 0,000 feet from
ilinsuifaco and dipping below tho bed
if tho stream. This ledgo has never
been worked and. has but lately been
discovered. It bus a width of about
sixty feet and its ore face is exposed
for fuily 1,200 feet of depth. Tho lo
cation is lint fur from the bottom of
the Uuss trail, iiftecu miles below the
liogau lead. ' ' 4
Tho question of reduction is 'gener
ally one of the weightiest In ,copper
mining. Some of the .ores of the dis
trict liuve betill Valuable enough ' to
ship to Pueblo, Colo., and Aguas Citl
ieutes, Mexico, for smelting. The
waters of the Indian garden creek can
be readily piped with a fall of at least
3,000 feet to the Colorado's level, the
power to be returned by electric wire
to the summit. The ereek has au av
erage flow of 100 miner's Inchet, or
nearly 1,000 gallons a minute. Sev
eral other such water powers, can be
developed at other points along the
Canyon's side.- bomethlug that would
approximate Niagara would be the
power to be secured from Cataract
creek. I should judge the minimum
flow of this stream to be about 60,000
miners' inches. The drop to the Col-
oradorlver within ten miles Is fully
Timber there U in plenty on the
rim. Coal could be, secured from Gal
lup,' on the Atlantic & faciilo, just
across the Arizoua line, or from the
Little Colorado mines, if it were made
possible to use .the river for, Its car
riage Coke could be obtaiued from
Trididad, Colo., at low cost.
Though copper Is the, main, metal of,
the Grand Canyon region it' is1 by no'
meaus the only one. ! Gold is found in
quariz at thn Niirf.tee and flintier down
in pyrites. One ledge nf the pyrites I-
200 feet in width. It assays little lu
gold but would be of immense value
for the production of sulphuric acid,
for the reduction of sulpuretic copper
ores by the Swedish process. Lead
carbonates carrying silv.r are found
on Cataract creek. The unusual pro
ducts include long staple asbestos, sail
and several kluds of precious stones.
Uf course a volume could be writ
ten on the possibilities of mineral de
velopment in such a region. I have
done little more limn Indicate the pos
nihilities. I believe the district will
hmu be known as one of the greatest
mineral producers of the world.
