THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: WEDNESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 9, 1896.
MINING NOTES. The Pearce mines belong to the same general formation and are in fact part of this gold district, and as soon as the country comes to know of the enor mous veins of low grade ore with their rich stringers threading through them which are to be found in that region there will be a mining excitement in that section which will eclipse any thing ever experienced in or about Cripple Creek. The Star predicts Bow ie and Willcox will ere long experience . a revival resulting from the gold reg ion contiguous to them which they little dream of now Tucson Star. Prescott Courier: A recent visitor in Big Bug district noted many evi dences of prosperity. Many miners are building new cabins, placer miners are doing well, having an abundance of water, while on every hand quartz miners may be seen at work. The Treasure Mining company of Denver will soon start sinking the shaft below the 300-foot level on the Atlantic vein. About fifty men are em ployed at the mine and the mill and the property is paying handsomely. The same company will also start sinking below the 400-root level on the Deep Down vein, which runs paral lel to the Atlantic and about sixty feet distant. The properties will be worked from separate shafts on each vein. The Las Amarillas mines, Sonora, are producing from $110,000 to $120,000 gold monthly. Arrangements will soon be made to start the furnace of the Arizona and New Mexico Smelting company, which is controlled by the American Zinc and Lead company of Conon City, Colorado. The washing out of the track of the S. C. & N. R. R. by floods last summer shut off the transportation and supply of fuel and caused the closing down of the furnace. ' A rich strike is reported on the Blind Goddess, a claim near Kingman, owned by Henry Ewing and others. The Cedar Valley Gold and Silver Mining company, whose property is lo cated forty miles south of Kingman, is about to add fifteen or twenty stamps to its present five-ton mill. There are two veins in the property, one four and the other fifteen inches in width, as saying $12 gold and twenty-five ounces silver. Solon Marker, who is hauling ore for Mr. Schaar, came in from Placer- itas last evening, bringing favorable reports from the camp. He says the mine is showing up fine, with about fifty men at work thereon. While Mr. Marker and Mr. Mendenhall were out prospecting a few days ago they dis covered and located, three miles east of Schaar's mill, a four foot ledge of ore which assays $25 per ton gold. They expect to have a five stamp mill in operation upon same inside of three months. Mr. Schaar is running his ten stamp mill day and night, handl ing twenty-eight tons of ore every twenty-four hours. The best of the ore goes over $300 per ton, while the low grade ore will average $50 per ton. Two steam hoists are in operation up on the mines. Mr. M. started in haul ing ore there some months ago with two horses; now he uses twelve horses and is in Prescott to further increase hia hauling facilities. Prescott Cour ier. LATE ARMY NEWS.
