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
IT is claimed that Indianapolis stands the
best chance for the new mint. Where the
bullion is coming from is not stated.
