DEVELOPMENT OF BUTTE CITY
C. W. Goodale Tells Mining Congress How the Greatest Mining Camp on Earth Was Start ed and How It Reached Its Height. "Notes of the Development of Butte" was the title of an interesting paper read before the Mining congress today by C. W. Goodale, asistant manager of the Bos ton & Montana company, as follows: The history of toe development of Butte mines is an interesting chapter in the story of the Northwest. The first discov eries of placer gold in Montana were made In the early sixties, and in 1863 gold was found in the Butte district. The period of greatest activity in placer mining here was in 1864 and 1865, and the town of Silver Bow was a lively place at that time. The town of Butte was located in the fall of 1864 and in 1867 the townsite was laidl out and Butte as a placer camp reached its clialax. The production of placer gold decreased rapidly from this date, and :I :88o it had become almost insignificant. The low grade of the placer gold which sold for only $14 to $18 per ounce, gave some indication of the origin of this gold. That is, the prospecting for silver may have been suggested by the belief that kold of this grade must have come from veiny carrying considerable silver, although it should also be stated that the prominent outcrops of black manganese ore, which were noticeable, induced the prospector to explore them below the surface for silver ore. The First Lode Location. The first lode location was made in the winter of 1864 and 1865, when W. L. Far lin located a claim, calling it the Asteroid, having found gold in the outcrop. This claim was afterwards re-located by him, and called the Travona, in June, 1866i. Some of the ore was roasted and amalga mated, and an ounce of silver bullion pro duced, but nothing was done towards thle development of this property until 187;. when Mr. Farlin erected a to-stamp mill and furnace near the mine, and began to treat the ore by chloridizing-roasting and amalgamation. This mill did not turn out much bullion until 1876, when Hlon. W. A. Clark furnished the means to com plete the Dexter mill, as it was called, andl the first successful treatment of the base silver ores oL the district was commenced. In 1868 the Lexington mill was built for the treatment ot ores by the free milling process. This mill was situated in a gulch corner of Arizona and Broadway. It was purchased by the Lexington Mining com pany when that corporation was formed in France, and a 5o-stamp mill with roast ng furnaces was built near the mine in -88r. Arrival of Marcus Daly. In the meantime, discoveries of other silver veins had been made, and in 1875 Menery and Packard came to Butte from Salt Lake and located a claim called the Acquisition Spur. They took out some rich silver ore, which they sent to Walker Brothers in Salt Lake. When this lot w.:i sampled the returns were so satisfactory that Walker Brothers sent Mr. Marcus Daly to this district to look into the min ing prospects generally. He arrived here in :876, took a bond on the Alice mine for $5,ooo and notified Walker Brothers. Rob ert Walker and Prof. John E. Clayton came to Butte, and, after looking over the property, selected the site of the present main shaft of the Alice mine as a suitable place for sinking, and work was started in the summer or fall of 1876. Prof. Clay ton gave a name to the great lode on which the Alice, Magna Charta, Valde mere and Moulton claims are located. He called it the "Rainbow" lode, from the broadly sweeping curve of the outcrop. In 1877, the shaft having reached a depth of 2oo feet, an old so-stamp mill was brought in from Ophir Canyon, Utah, and was erected on the Alice property. It was arranged for dry crushing (water in sufficient quantities tor wet crushing not being available), and the treatment of the oxidized or free milling ores was be gun in the fall of r877. In :878 and :879, a White-Howell roaster was added, thus providing for the chlorodizing roasting of the suplhide ores. The 6o-stamp mill of the Alice company was built in 188o, and was equipped with two White-Howell roasters and revolving dryer. Number of Mills Erected. The Moulton mill was completed about the same time as the Alice, and was equipped with 40 stamps and White-Howell roasters. In 1884 the Bluebird mine was pur chased by a London company, and a 9o stamp mill was built for the property in 1886. Tile mill of the Silver Bow Mining and Milling company was built in the early 8o's for the treatment of ore from the La Plata and other mines owned by the company. The climax of the production of silver ores in Butte was reached in the year 1887, when the Alice company was run ning 8o stamps, the Moulton 40, the Lex ington 50o, the Bluebird go and the Silver Bow 3o, or a total of ago stamps. T'he amount o. ore worked in these mills was nearly 400 tons per day, and to this should be added shipments of silver ore to the smelters probably of ioo tons per day. All of this ore carried gold in consider able quantities, and the yield was prob ably about $25 per ton in gold and silver. Organization of the Anaconda. The Anaconda company was first organ ized as the Anaconda Silver Mining com pany, for the outcrop of the vein, while showing some copper, seemed to give promise of being more productive in silver than in copper. In the year 1881 the Dexter mill was leased for a year by Mr. Daly, manager of the Anaconda company, and shipments to that mill amounted to S,ooo tons of oxidized silver ore, contain ing about 30 ounces of silver to the ton. It is illteresting to note that this ore contained just enough copper to make it unnecessary to add bluestone in the raw amalgamation of this ore. The resulting bullion was very base, sometimes run ning only about 400 fine. The ore shipped to the Dexter mill came from where the Never Sweat hoist now stands, which was the location of Mr. Daly's first opening of the great Anaconda lode. At a depth of loo feet a drift running northeast ran into copper glance a few inches wide, which was followed about zoo feet. About this time Mr. George Hearst vis ited the district, and a place was selected for sinking a shaft for the deep explora tion of the lode. The present location of the main Ans conda shaft was determined upon as the most suitable place for tilts development. A cross-cut was run from this shaft when it had reached a depth of 300 feet. In this cross-cut file feet of copper glance was discovered, and shipments to Swan sea began. While the silver veins were being discovered the surface showings ot copper ore were receiving some attention and an effort way made as early as 1867 to smelt some of the ore front the I'a-rot lode in a little furnace built neatr that property, but nothing of pract cae iln portance was aeclcomplished. Clark Part in It. Mr. Clark turned hiii attention to the coppler veins of the district in 1872, and in 1873 and 1874 he began the develop ment of the Ol ifin:al, Colunsa, Mountain Chief and Gambctta claims. The ore pro duced was shipped 400 miles in swagons to Corilnne, thence by rail to Swansea, and to buyers of copper Ire in this country, among them the IPostont & Colorado S,ac:t ing company at black Ilawk. ('oi,. In :878 Mr. Clark sutge ted tI, the man agement of that cmpllanyil thi coim.trt(:to-t of a tustom copper smelter in H':ttn., and Mr. Henry Wil.iams ws sct hIue to ex amine and repolt onl te tI thro'i.

TLheArst meehauicat.fursact introduced in Butte was the old O'Hfar calciner, which was erected by Mr. Clar, at his Colusa works in Meaderville. Then came the Breuckner furnace, which brought the cost of calcining down to about $1.as per ton. Soon after this improvements were made in the O'Hara by Messrs. At len and Brown, and furnaces were bul.t which treated so tons of ore per day at a cost of about So cents per ton. Then came the Pearce turret furnace in :89g, with a cost of treatment about the sani as in the O'Hara above mentioned. Following this were furnaces of other designs, notably the Keller, Wethey ai~d Wethey-Holthoff; and finally the Mc Dougall, which has a capacity of 40 tons per day, and In which the cost of treat ment has been brought down to about ts cents. No fuel is used after the fur nace is thoroughly heated up and feed ing of theeore has begun. The Pearce multiple hearth furnace should he men tionled in this connection, a furnace of this type having bern recently built at the works of the Colorado company, where it is giving very satisfactory results.
