SILVER MINE OWNERS
II
Nogales, Arizona, July 31. The
chamber of commerce has joined with
Charles Butters, mining expert of
New York and San Francisco, to pro
mote the formation in Mexico of an
association of silver mine owners and
silver producers to rebuild the aband
oned mints throughout the nation and
thus bring about once more the free
and unlimited coinage of silver. Mr.
Butters states that if the oldtime
minting plan is re-established it will
mean that Mexico will coin 500,000,
000 ounces of silver.
The mining expert has extensive
interests in mines in Mexico, Salva
dor and Nicaragua and is known for
his introductjon of the cyanide re
duction process in Mexico. He says
that the greatest need in Mexico to
day is small change and "hard nton
ey." The revolutions and the world war
says Mr. Butters have stripped Mex
ico bare of silver coin. In its place
he says is a vast quantity of paper
money issued by the varying govern
ments as fight money. He blames
the great flood of paper money in
Mexico for most of the suffering in
that nation in connection with the
various revolutions.
His plan, backed by the Nogales
Chamber of Commerce, is to have
the old mints rebuilt and placed in
operation by the association of sil
ver mine interests at the cost of the
association and place the mints in
operation. Then the costs of the re
newed mints would be recovered by
the association from the mint profits
over a course of years. Upon the
paying out of the capital charge ins
restoring the mints, they are to be re
turned to the Mexican federal gov
ernment as its property.
The system, according to the sil
ver mine experts has threefold, ben
efits. First it will at once restore
to Mexico the "hard money" and
small change needed by merchants,
banks and businessmen and now
lacking. Second, it will provide a
permanent primary market at home
for large amounts of silver produc
tion. Third, it will stabilize the sil
ver market because the Mexican
home requirements will take up a
great quantity of silver now export
ed and sold on the speculative mar
ket through San Fjancisco to the
Orient. Also, this will serve to sti
mulate silver production because of
thus raising the primary market price
for the semi-precious metal.
President Bracy Curtis of the
Chamber of Commerce has named a,
committee of prominent men to taW
up the mint proposal with General AWt j
varo Obregon on his impending visitV-.'
to his home in Nogales, Sonora, in
this month.
Meanwhile the proposition will be
submitted by the Nogales Chamber of
Commerce to the civic bodies of all
other border cities and the officials
of border states.
Disappearing Mountain
at Copper Queen Mine
At the outset of the Sacramentlu
steam-shovel operations at Bisbee.'of1
the Copper Queen branch of the
Phelps Dodge corporation, the total
amount of waste to be removed be
fore the production starts which will
be early in 1921, was 6,167,000 cubic
yards. Of this 4,370,000 cubic yards
was removed by the end of April so
that 71 per cent of the waste ship
ping necessary before production
starts was then complete. It is ex
pected at present that steamshoTfeL ,
operations will be ready foivftteaify
production early in 1921. "V
It is estimated that the new"niill
for handling the concentrating ore
from the steam shovel pits will also
be complete very early next year, the
exact month being dependent on the
supply of labor during the remainder
of the year and also on steel deliver-
