A MOUNTAIN OF GOLD. Miners from the great San Juan mines of north western Colorado say that gold in mar vellous quantities has been discovered in the Sangre de Christo range ofmountain , which lie on the eastern border of ths eSan Luis Park an d about seventy miles west from Pueblo. The first discovery made on this range was in November, 1874, since which tine the Cambria, Hidden Treasure, Little Giant, Jackson, Centennial, and Revenge gold lodes have proved themselves of great value. Returns from three of these mines tested in Swansea showed from $40 to $360 gold per ton, and showing some silver in each. The Jackson lode, since the above test was made, 'has given ores that assay from $5,000 to $40,000 gold per ton. A stamp mill of ten ton daily capacity has been etected at this mine and will be in operation sometime this month. Over 200 tons of this gold quartWore is now on the dump, from mines on the Sangre de Christo, which will be reduced next season. This gold belt, as far as prospected, extends from Mosco Pass tweilty miles north. South from Del Norte thirty miles, lie the gold districts of Alamoza,, Summit, Tullu Sic, and Decatur. Perhaps South Mountain, in Summit district, affords i the best yield of gold in that vicinity.. A correspondent of a Denver paper says that it is one solid mass of gold quartz. Mr. Harry Adsit, one of the returned miners, who has prospected in the San Juan country for the last three years, corroborates this statement. He says that South Mountain is about; two miles long, and that there is but one true fissure vein in it; yet all of it, the whole mass, produces gold more or less rich. It is upon this moun tan that the famous Little Annie lode is lo cated, one-half of which was recently sold to parties in New York for $300,000. This mine, averaged, will run about $40 per ton. Silverton is one hundred miles west from Del Norte, in San Juan county, and about fifty or sixty miles soulth from Silverton are the La Plata gold mines, situated on the La Plata river. There is a gold bar running along the margin of that stream, about five miles of which has been taken up, and last season a considerable amount of placer mm ing was done. A system of ditches has been constructed, and next season promises some lively placer mining at this point, But it is to the quartz lodes that the ni ner looks for permanent, reliable returns, after all, and here we have the Comstock mine, discovered by Capt. John Moss, an old California miner, which perhaps is the richest gold mine on the continent. One hundred pounds of gold quartz ore taken from this mine in October last, netted $1, 500, while ore taken out in the following month run $120,000 per ton.--Kansas City Times. IT is claimed that Indianapolis stands the best chance for the new mint. Where the bullion is coming from is not stated.
