The Coeur d'Alene Nellie Has
Begun Shipping Ore to
Much Expeoted from the Libby
Creek County Now it Has
a Railroad.
A Concise Dserliption of the District with
a Brief Mention of 8o.0e
of the Properties.
Oaneirc. Idaho, Oct. 13.--Special,J-The
Ceeur 'dAlene Nellie mine at this place has
commenced shipping ore to lHelena via the
Northern Pacific road. One car load was
sent to Pueblo. Col., as an experiment.
Heretofore all Nellie ore has been treated
at the Ryan smelter at Tacoma. She Nellie
mine is about a mile back from the Ccunr
d'Alene valley and the Northern 1'acifie and
Union Pacific tracks. A fairly good, though
somewhat steep, wagon road runs to the
mine. Enormous loads of ore are hauled
down this road to the railway switch where
the cars are sidetracked The other day an
ore freighter started down the grade with
8.000 pounds of ore on his wagon, when the
brake gave way. The enormous weight
made it imnpossible to stop, and the only
chance was to run for it. Btrauge to say
the outfit stack to the road, although the
speed was something terrible before the
bottom was reached. The wagon ran 300
yards on the level valley before the horses
were able to slacken its speed. The driver,
a nervy fellow, stuck to his post and saved
the outfit at the risk of hie life.
Cooper-silver ore in good quantities has
bae n struck in the Shannon at this place,
but the main ore body has not yet been
reached. Development work has been in
progreas for some weeks in the Shannon,
and over 500 feet of tunnels are completed.
This property is owned by F. A. Stevens
and Win. Payne, and is now under bond to
C. S. Jenning, T. H. McIntosh and others.
The work has been done under the direction
of Foreman J. J. Liddy. The Shannon is
situated midway between two good mines-
the Mineral Point and Ceour d'Alene Nellie
-and the finding of a big body of or0 is
oaily expected.
The little mining town of Osburn is al- i
most booming this fall. Active prepara
tions by the Minnesota syndicate which has
control of the Mineral Point and Cetur
d'Alene Nellie are on foot for extensive op
erarions on the Mineral Point. President
Samuel McClure, of Stillwater, Minn,, is
now here. Already this company has a
monthly pay roll of about $5,000. The Ar
gentine mine, owned by O. M. Lonsdale
and others, of Portland, Oregon, it is re
ported will resume work within a fortnight
with a force of sixty men. This mine closed
down in May last on ceconut of some disa
greement among the owners. A new ser
enty-five too concentrator and an expensive
hoist had just been completed when the
works shut down. The Argentine has a
large body of low-grade galena with some
gray copper and spathio iron. The ore is
transported from the mine to the railway
bl a gravity tamnway about 2,500 feet in i
length. J. 1i. end Frank Davey, father and
esn, a e arleral mIzlarriers. Last winter,
while the mine was in full operation, eighty
tone or ore were shipped daily to smelters
at eloleun, with very satisfactory results.
A s astem of wariter works is being put in
at Ocborn by local cairitalits. The supply
is taken f, om three large springs about a
mile south of town, flumed 1,150 feet,
thence carried by ion mains 2.000 teet to
the main street, thence distributed to all
rnrts of town. Electric lights are a possi
bility for Osburn within the next six
A Promlisng Section of Mllissoula County
and Its Mines.
The Libbv Miner, published at Libby, in
Mihsoula county, on the linei of the Great
Northern extension, in the last issue gives
quite a lengthy description of the mines in
that section. It sas that on what is termed i
tile Big lnid of the KootLenai river, be
tween latitude 4' and 4:1, longitude (Green- i
wich) 115 and 11' 30-100( west, lies a mining
district that until recently wa.s as little
known as some vortioue of Alaska. lav-y
ing made its debut as a mining country
fi at in the early '60's, by placers located and
worked on nearly every portion of its area,
it naturally subsided owing to the floating I
disposition of its discoverers and the then
unknown existence and vi-tue of ar
gentifelous quartz, and the lack of trana
portation, into a state of lethargy, its quiet t
only distnrbed by the regular yearly visits
of some few prospectors who came to sluice
cut its still remaining "diust." Tin'e,
energy and persietance on the part of theOe
who had faith It it, con st.nt discoveries of r
larie ore bodice and t!e advent of thI

miles north we come to Leigh creek.
The next oreek is tGmerle end of it very
little is known at presert, owing to the re
sult of a snowstlde, which in its edovement
deposited soll enormous quantities of de
brim that it is blind to all uses. Its future,
however, is not blighted, as energy will
overcome all such obstacles. Coming two
miles (north) is Deep creek, the possessor
of many fine propesties, the names of
which we are not familiar with. Four
miles north from Deep creek is Grante
creek, having along its contour the Silver
Crown group,, the Bl3ue 1Eyed Nellie, the
losz Saw, Pay tock, lirotherhuod and
othere, having within their limits nearly
700 feet of development, and possessing
many virtues. Passing Flower creek the
next mineral group is found on Cedar
creek. They contain copper-silver ores and
are owned by Clark et al. North of the
Kootenai river on Rainy creek are several
bright prosperts, notably the Kooteali
lode, the Tombstone and the Violet. West
of Libby creek 10 miles is the Grouse
Mountain district, North and east are
others in various stages of development,
which await but the necessary capital to be
brought ap to a paying standpoint.
The product olt each district is of a char
acter very valuable, owing to the high per
centage of lead and iron. the spathio iron
carrying from $12 to i90 in gold wherever
found, and occurring an all properties with
detlh. Although the bulk of the ores
would not lie oiseaed as high grade in na
tivity, their abundance and excellent con
centrating privileges which abound in
every section render them such after treat
ment. The present drawback Is the lack
of facilities for transportation of the ores
to the railroad and the return of supplies
and necessary mnachinery.
