MINING NEWS FROM
PRESCOTT, Ariz., Dec. 27. The
record made by the great Verde Min
ing District of Yavapai County, Ariz.,
in the production of the red metal and
the purchasing of bonds, war savings
stamps and the outright subscriptions
to the various war organizations
speaks for itself of the manner in
which the companies and the employ
ees assisted the government during
the war period. With the cessation
of hostitities there has been no let-up
in that district with respect to the de
sire to bring in more producig mines,
according to a recent issue of the Ver
de Copper News, published at Jerome.
The Gadsden, which is being devel
oped by the Calmuet and Arizona
Copper company, will soon be eauinn
ed with a pump capable of handling
the present water development as
well as that of the future. Recently
General manager W. B. Goehring and
Master Mechanic Will K. McKee of the
C. and A. visited the property and de
cided that a pump of 600 to 1000 gal
lons capacity was required. The pres
cent pumps are lifting 318 gallons a
minute and it is certain that much
more water will be developed as soon
as the west crosscut from the 1200
foot station reaches the fault which is
its objective. The crosscut has ad
vanced some 600 feet and it has just
passed through another sheared zone
of quartz porphyrywith a little schist.
There is much mineralization in the
form of iron and iron oxide. This
makes at least three such zones thru
which the crosscut has passed. All
of them look promising enough to
warrant drifting, but this will not be
done until the main north-and-south
drift is reached. This probably is 600
or 700 feet ahead of the present face
of the crosscut.
Shortly after the first of the year
the interurban line between Jerome
pounds a month or 12,000,000 pounds
per annum. Under the prevailing
price tor copper this output has a net
value of $1,545,000, equivalent to
about ninety cents a share on the 1,
663,000 shares of $6 par outstanding
before tax reductions. This compares
with net profits of $881,816 last year
and $859,014 in 1916 and is more than
four times dividend requirements of
five cents a share, or twenty cents per
auuuiu. b la uie expectation OI me
management that all construction
work at the company's Blue Bell and
Deooto mines. Considerable exnlor
atory work is being prosecuted at the
company's recently acquired Swatstika
silver property .located a short dis
tance from its smelter. At the close
of 1917 ore reserves at the Blue Bell
mine were estimated at 536,800 tons
of 3.10 per cent copper and $2 in gold
and silver and of the De Soto mine
66,200 tons of 3 per cent copper and.
$2 gold and silver.
During the past few weeks, the
Western Copper company in the May
er distrinct has attracted much atten
tion. This property is located four
miles from Mayer and lvine immediat
ely between the Binghampton and Cop
per Queen holding on the north and
the famous old Stoddard group on the
south. If location counts for any
thing, this group constitutes one of
tne choicest and most promising prop
erties in the Mayer district, as it
straddles the great outcrop 700 feet
wiue Deiween me two Dest Known and
most productive mines yet developed
in uiat aisinci ana me suriace snow'
ings are said to be attractive. The
property has been developed to a
small extent by a number of shallow
shalts and open cuts, all showing min
eral, some of which were put down as
location work and annual assessment
work and others sunk by the present
owners to determine the proper loca
tion for a permanent working shaft.
On the south end of the property, not
far from the Stoddard line, several
short tunnels have been driven into
the schist at either side of the por
phyry contact and all these show the

according to information given by W.
H. Archdeacon of the Verde Tunnel
and Smelter 'Railroad company. The
grading for the new line is nearly
completed and the rails have been laid
for more than half the distance be
tween the two towns. The track
layers are working close behind the
graders and the two departments of
the work will be able to announce com
pletion, within a few days of each
other. The second motor car has
ben delivered and it is expected
that the tirst tram will pass over the
r&ils within a month from today and
possibly a few days earlier. Each
motor car will pull a trailer fitted up,
and as soon as the service becomes ad
justed it will be possible for Clark
dale travelers to purchase tickets to
Jerome Junction by way of Jerome
and the U. V. and P. road. Jhe in
terurban schedule will be so arranged
that close connections will be made.
It is possible that this service will be
extended to Cottonwood and Verde.
Without delay the Verde Combina
tion shaft will be sunk 200 feet deeper
and development of the promising
showing opened on the 1980 will be
prosecuted vigorously on the new lev
el. While sinking is going on work
will be continued in the No. 8 south
west drift on the 1080, which has al
ready exposed a big body of schist car
rymg pyrite and chalcopynte. This
work was the principal recommenda
tion of Manager Dave Morgan in his
annual report which was unanimously
adopted. Tiie repoit shows that for
the year ending October 31, the Com
bination company accomplished 5,039
feet of drifting and cross-cutting at a
cost of $16.67 a foot. The shaft was
sunk 402 feet at $63.91 a foot. The
management is confident that within
another year, a producing cooper will
be made of the Verde Combination.
The Consolidated Arizona at Hum
boldt, is averaging around 1,000,000
ground and all have agreed that its
present possibilities are well worth
exploring and have also agreed
that the location chosen by the pres
ent owners for the permanent shaft is
the best on the ground. The prop
erty is the best on the ground. The
property is connected with Mayer
roaa wnicn win require but little re
pair to make it an easy and inexpen
sive matter to transport supplies to
tne mine and ores to the smelter. The
ground presents another advantage in
the fact that there is a considerable
dip in the surface between the Bing
hampton and the Stoddard and it is
expected that the ore bodies will be
found at least depth, possibly 300 feet
than in the former which is now tak
ing out ore from the 600 level.
