The Mining Industry of Lemhi County, Idaho
(By J. W. Caples. Mining and Civil
Engineer. )
HIS article being limited to
twenty-five hundred words
cannot be expected to cover
the entire county in a detailed ac
count of its mines, ores and geology,
but must simply, In a general way,
cov r the field. Therefore It will
bo the object of the writer to pre
sent such facts as will be of Inter
est to the prospector to guide him in
his choice of the section of the
country to work in; to the general
pub'ic to give them an idea of the
wonderful mineral resources of the
comity; to the investor in mines, to
let him know that Lemhi county, is
the most promising field in the west
for the making of dividend pro
ducers. As this article is to be
published in an agricultural paper,
it will, no doubt, be read more by
the prospectors and the general pub
lic than the mine promoter.
It has been hard in the past for
either the prospector or the mining
man to work with success In Lemhi
county. This was due to the in
accessabllity of the country. In a
large measure this has been over
come by the building of the Gil
more and Pittsburg railroad, which
furnishes ready ingress and egress
to all points in the Lemhi valley,
and with Its proposed extensions
will make all pointo in the county
within reach of railroad transporta
tion. The railroad today is built
