TUCSON, PIMA COUNTY, ARIZONA, Saturday, August 24, 1873 THE ARIZONA DIAMONDS. A Preliminary Report by a Mining Expert who was on the Ground and Assisted in the Work of Wash ing, Surveying, Claiming, &c. From The San Francisco Bulletin. Henry Janin's report to S. L. M Barlow, gives the following imfornia tion concerning his discoveries and f 1 ys while at the diamond fields. iuc-. v7as washed of rich gravel less lix -T). but Bay, three thousand pounds !. and a half tons. This amount k was done by Messrs. Stack & , principally, tho only ex- ed washers, assisted at times ij self and other member of the party. The total amount of work done was under, but say four days' work of two men, or eight days' work oi one man This amount of labor produced 256 carats of diamonds, first quality, worth $16 per carat, or 4,096 : 568 carats diamonds, second quality, worth 3 per carat, 1, 04; 824 carats, worth 5,800. Further of rubies, four pounds, of 7,200 carats, worth fifty cents per carat, out estimated at thirty cents 2,226. Total produce of one and a half tons gravel, 8,026, or 5,350 say o,000 per ton The estimate was made on a conser vative, commercial and selling basis, and ignored the fact that while none of the diamonds were worth less, many were large enought to be worth much more per carat than 16. The estimate upon the rubies was made with due regard to the great quantity in which they can be produced and to the effect of this quantity upon the market The washing was done by hand, in ordinary gold pans. With the assis tance of even the simplest machinery (gold rockers), the results of the same quality or gravel would have been increased many fold by tho same number of days work. One thousand tons of such gravel as this would pro duce 50 per share, and would more than cover the purchase price and ex penses of production. Gravel so poor as to produce in value only one per cent, of tho ascertained value of the richest gravel would still ba worth 50 per ton, and would pay very large profits, if washed in quantities. The expense of washing would never exceed 10 per ton. An acre of ground covers'43,560 square feet, and with an average dept of soil of one foot would produce (at twenty cubic feet per ton) over, but say two thousand, tons. Therefore, if the ground proves as rich over only one- half aero of ground, as the stuff washed already, this small area will produce 1,000 tons, and would more than cover by its yield of dia monds and rubies the purchase money. If ten acres only, which would furnish 20,000 tons, prove to be ono twentieth (five per cent,) as rich as the best ground, the produce will amount to 5,000,000, or 50 per share. Our stay at the diamond fields was so short (we were in camp at the field only seven days) and there was so much to be done in the way of locat ing, surveying and securing the prop erty, water rights and timber lands, that it left much less time than I de sired in which to prospect and sample this tract of -ground. To prospect tho whole tract of nearly 3,000 acres would occupy months. I had only time to gather samples from those portions of the 260-acre block of ground which aro marked on tho ac companying plat. At each one of the points numbered, diamonds or rubies were found, as per enclosed samples. The points were over one-third of a nine distant from tho original dis covery, ancLshow a very large area to be diamond and ruby bearing. The samples were taken from the surface. It is probable that at a greater depth larger diamonds would be found. The amount ot prospect ing done was insignificant, and does not enable me to form a judgment as to the extent or limit either of the very rich or only moderately rich ground. The apprehension that diamonds may bo found in such an abundance as to destroy their value, is to my . i t ..v i r mma entirely witnouc iouuuuuuii. The question of water is satisfactorily answered by the statement that we secured five streams, being all we found on this side of the mountain. The Arnold creek alone (and two of the others are much larger) will suf fice for all demands for power and washing for any amount of machinery and any number of tons of daily washing of gravel. We secured also 320 acres of pine timber lands, ample 1 for fencing and for flumes and build ings steam-power will never be necessary. The streams of water are so situated that they can be carried to any part of tho property at a mod erate expense? A mining district was formed and mining laws passed to protect our interests. In conclusion, I would say that I consider this a won derfully rich discovery and one that will prove extremely profitable. That while I did not have time enough to make the investigations which would have answered very important ques tions, I do not doubt that further prospecting will result in finding dia monds over a greater area than is as yet proved to be diamond-bearing and nnaliy, tnat JL consider any in vestment at 40 per share, or at the rate of 4,000,000 for the whole pro perty, a safe and attractive one. SANTOS, after his return from Washington, decked himself out in regular military style, black pants with blue stripe, black uniform coat of a cavalry Captain, blue cloth vest, white shirt with sky-blue necktie, fine iv calfskin boots and a broad brimmed straw hat, "tastefully fes tooned," etc., paid his respects to the commanding officer at Grant, Captain E. H. Leib, and through an inter preter gave quite an interesting ac count of his " adventures " East. He says he "don't believe that these large four, five and six story houses New York were built by ma that God must have made them ; that he saw the President, who don't talk much, but what he does say is good is a good man : he thinks that he (Santos) "doesn't go in for war against the whites any more, as the Great Father has plenty of men to send against the Apaches."
