The main shaft has been sunk to a depth of 3r,a feet, with excellent ore showing in every foot of the workings. Sinking will continue and at the same time drifts will be run in ooth direc tions and stoping commenced as the ore encountered is high grade and will be shipped to El Paso. We are glad to notice these developments which are especially close to Phoenix. Engineers and probable purchasers aj- now examining the property of the Parker Mining company,- fifty miles north of Phoenix on Camp Creek. The Shannon Cooper Co. . The local office of the Shannon is advised that during the past thirty days there have been important devel opments in lower levels of me proper ty, one new ore body has been opened for a length of over l.'iO feet, and for a width of over 2T feet, without having reached the ore limits. Assays of this ore taken trom the full face of the drift gave 0.4 per cent copper. Another ore bodv was encountered on the sec ond sub-level, of which samples taken for a width of five feet gave an average assay of 11 per cent copper. In open ing up these rich ores on the lower lev vis, the general aspect of Shannon has greatly improved. The management believes it assures the company a new mine below the ore level, with much better ores than on th-e upper levels. Resides these improvements in Shan non proper, one of the company's out side properties has d- 'eloped into a very productive minv. from which over o0,00a tons of ore were shipped last J year, and which is shipping at the rate of 70,000 tons per annum. Another of Shannon's outside properties which joins the "King" mine of tile Arizona Copper, company is also making ship ments of limited quantities of high grade ore. ;.nd gives promise of becom ing an important producer. These out side properties have been bought and! paid for, developed and equipped by the Shannon company out of its own L. R. Logkr was in town during the week, enroute to his marble quarries, near Cochise stronghold. The quarries produce a very beautiful varlgated marble and probably the finest on the American continent. Ron is S. Cates has been made gen eral manager of all the Ray Consoli dated interests at Ray and Hayden. H -re's a little remark of unasked for appreciation concerning the weekly mining notes, contained in a letter from a well known mining firm in New York. "Your articles are interesting and valuable to us in the East and will, we trust le long continued." We have received many comunications of a similar nature. The December output of Calumet and Arizona was 5,840,000 pounds of blister copper against 4,918,000 in November. This includes the output of Shattuck Arizona. - - v if mm? ----- 'C't'' V V w - 'Zf. i&"vr. J ?

The In come of Rutte, Mont., one of the larg est mining camps in the world, is only a few millions ahead of these figures. Rufte's annual income is $15,000,000. Construction work covering a radius of six miles is under way at Miami. Fifteen million dollars are expended in this vast work. Miami now ranks third in the United States and fourth in the work as a camp for demonstrated ore body or reserves. The Inspiration Consolidated is lo cated at Miami. The only instance where John Pierpont Morgan tinder wrote the bonds of a mining company was with this company. This repre sents the opinion capitalists have of this section.

The machinery has as a rt.le been well kept although tht mi'l ha3 been damaged by several wind and rain storms. There are several other buildings. None of the tunnels or shafts excejft the Mexican shaft have caved in, the formation being absolutely dry and requiring no timbering. The! track is still in the main tunnel and j branches, and usable. It would seem j as if wiih the information now ob tained, and which will prevent any waste, energetic and honest people could make the "Bully Cave," as it is now called, pay very well. It is understood the company is not averse to negotiating with local capital for a working arrangement; and as the Bully Cave Co. has prop erty on Bully Hill, California, esti mated to be worth as much as the adjoining Delamar property, and is composed of men known in New York to be conservative and responsi ble, this is a case where some of our local sharps might "sit up and take notice." It is reported that the Twin Buttes Mining Co. near Tucson has at present more men employed upon the mine than ever before. This property has a great future, undoubt edly; it has large ore bodies and very promising ground for making more. Oeorge P. Harrington, general man ager of the Nelson Mining Co., near Crown King, Yavapai county, lias closed negotiations for the Ramon group of claims adjoining the Nelson property. The Ramon claims have a system of natural springs, which give a never failing water supply. Gila County. From the inspiration mine about 20,000 tons of ore per month is being mined during development and is put on the stock pile until the mill is ready. flood progress is being made with the construction of the Arizona and Eastern railroad from Miami to Rive Oak terminal. The Vivian Mining company and the Boundary Cone, Mohave county, operating extensively in the Tom Reed ara, have ore in and below the older Andesite, contrary to the opin ions of proliabilities given by F. C. Schrader in his report of the United States Geological Survey, Rulletin 340 A. The Old Phoenix Mine. We hav? been asked to publish the following particulars of the Old Phoe nix Mine. 50 miles north of Phoenix by the present owners, whose office is in New York City. Tossibly very few mining men in Phoenix, or vicinity, are aware of the interest which has been excited in the east during the past two years, by the examinations of the old Phoenix Mine at Cave Creek, made by eminent en gineers and by the results of syste matic sampling. The mine is now owned by the Bully Cave company of New York, which ac quired it at the foreclosure sale which was advertised in The Republican, and all the obligations of the Phoenix com pany were wiped out by this sale. Patents of the claims and mill sites have been obtained, old claims relo cated and work upon them done and several former water appropriations relocated and the water diverted; while plans for extensive improvements are being considered. j Without any flourish of trumpets, several mining engineers of repute, and several old prospectors have visited the property, and have given it a thor ough examination. They have had the benefit of the experience of James F. Smith of Phoenix, formerly superin tendent, William H. Channel of Cave Creek, who formerly worked at the mine and several others who are ac quainted with the work in the old days. It has been definitely ascertained that a canoe shaped ore body crosses the property, from northeast to south west. It is from 200 to 500 feet wide. an( from 1,500,000 to 2,000,000 tons can be reached, in the opinion of Kirby Thomas M. F. without any further de velopment work. On the east of this body is a quartz-porphyry dike, not discovered by the previous owners, and which may contain high values at depth, and beyond this dyke there is nothing but slate and schist, although much useless work was done dnthls formation by former owners. The recent sampling, conducted by Mr. Channel, under the direction of I Mr. Kirby Thomas, has shown an un expectedly high average of values. It was supposed that most of the mass was $2.00 ore. but lare-e areas hevo 1 shown an average of $4.55 and manv Duncnes have run up to $12.00, $22.40 etc. me old stopes in their time yield ed many thousand tons of $40 ore, and it is hoped that this high grade ore as not exhausted. A wid? belt of Vanadium ore (lead vanadate) has also been located in the stopes, where badly leached ore has assayed nearly three per cent vanadic acid, leading to the inference that much richer ore will be found at depth. In the Phoenix Mine days this yellow va nadium was the bane of the existence of the mill men, who had to sit up all night to keep the plates clear. Mr. Constant, the celebrated chemist and ossayer. who visited the mine says that they probably threw awav $500,000 worth of vanadium, without knowing its vala. He took samples of con centrates from the dump back of the mill, ar.d they assayed 21 per cent vanadic r.rid: 1 ut about that time the old Phoenix company went to pieces and no one could be found At the property of the Harris Cop per company on the Agua Fria rfver, 50 miles north of Phoenix and ad joining the Tribolet property, S00 feet of development work has been done. The company has an area of 550 acres and a water right. It is reported that considerable development work is con templated and hoisting and compres sing machinery will be installed. The Department's Ruling. In a statement by W. C. Mender hill of the Interior department upon the federal administration of the pub lic lands, he sets at rest many mis conceptions of the department's rul ings. The following is an interesting extract from his letter: "Whereas, the Department of the Interior by those decisions revolution ary in theif effect has announced that it is no longer sufficient for the lo cator of a lode mining claim before securing patent to discover mineral bearing rock in place but that such locator must prove that ore of com mercial value exists within the limits of each and every claim before the department will pass such claims for patent. "This is a clear misstatement of the department's attitude and similar mis statements and misconceptions have had wide circulation. The department has said that there must be discov ery of a lode possessing 'a present or prospective value for mining pur poses. This is not holding that there must be discovery- of ore of commer cial value, but is clearly in accord with the letter and the spirit of the statutes which require that there must be a discovery of a vein or lode con taining a valuable mineral deposit." We are glad to give the above cor rection and note that the (department is not so heartless and impossible as it appeared to be. Mr. Joseph G. Allen mining en gineer from Chicago, was in town during the week. Decrease of lead production in Arizona. The production of lead was about 7,000,000 pounds, or nearly one third less than in 1911. However, the lead production of 1911 was exceptionally high and last year's output exceeded that of the last eight years with the exception of 1911. The lead ores and concentrates were shipped to El Paso and Needles smelters, as we have no lead smelter in Arizona. pti ere was a remarkable increase in the production of zinc. The total pro duction will amount to 8,500,000 pounds. The "Golconda" in Mohave county was the greatest producer, -hi mine has been noticed in these r.inmna several times, as the largest l vj i u 1 I I 1 I i . . producer in the southwest, one montn it shipped 35,000 tons ot ore ana con centra te. Arizona an Attractive Field. The following is a copy from a re cent issue of the Salt Lake Tribune: W. P. O'Meara, one of the best known Utah and Nevada mine opera tors, now with headquarters in Los Angeles, is a guest at the Hotel Utah for a day or two en route from the east to his California home. Mr. O'Meara, like all residents of Los An geles, is thoroughly imbued with the lcyal spirit and he believes that a million inhabitants for Los Angeles is a certainty within a brief period.
