The Alaska Gold Miues Company, a holding company, was organized for the purpose of ab sorbing all of tho stock and bonds of (lie Alaska Gastineau Mining Com pany, the operating company, and also to arrange for the original tinanciug 1 re<| ul red. AlaskaGastineau Plan. A general development prog rum was laid out as follows: The mine, located iu Silver How basin and locally known us the Pur severance division, wus to be devel oped by mean** of raises, shufts, drifts, opening up of stopes, building of boarding houses, compressors, trans portation system, etc., on u scale which would allow it to deliver a daily tonnage of 10,000 tons. The scheme of development to be further planned \ so that this tonnage could be lucreased as rapidly as possible to 20,000 tons per day. At JSUOep Cri't'K, lour UliieB 9VUIU I Of Juneau, located on Gastineau chan nel, an area was taken up where the milling plants were to be erected und all necessary machine shops, hoarding houses, warehouses, residential sec tion. etc., necessary to the milling plant the first unit of which would he C.OOu tons were to be constructed, and such milling plant laid out on a scale where it could be increased to 20,000 tons as rapidly as possible. Further an electric railroad system was projected to connect this milling plant with the Perseverance mine, a distance of three miles. Two miles of this railroad system comprising a great adit tunnel which was to be driven from the Sheep creek end of the properties on the strike of the lode system to connect with the shafts being suuk in the mine in the Perse vtrance division, this adit tapping the ore zone 2200 feet in depth. This milling plant is located in what is locally known as the Sheep creek division. At Salmon creek, three and a half miles north of Juneau, a plan was laid out to develop the water power of this stream with the idea of creating stor age of suttlcieut capacity to furnish electric power throughout the year of 1 not less than 0,000 electric horse pow er. this power to be generated at Sal mon creek and transmitted to both the mine at the Perseverance division and the mill at Sheep creek. In order to create this storage it was found to be necessary to build a dam of the variable radius arch type, 103 feet in height and approximately 1 TOO feet on the crest. Largest Milling Plant in World. As soon this above program was outliucd and passed, orders were giv en on the 8th of July, 1912, to pro ceed 011 this work at the utmost speed so that the entire program of con struction and equipment would be fin ished not later thun January 1st, 1915, at which time the tirst unit of 6,000 tons per day milling plant, would start operations. It may be noted herein that this tirst unit is the largest mill ing plant ever projected on any gold property in the world. During the year, which includes the | winter of 1912, active operations to the ends mentioned above have been carried on in all three divisions and at the present writing the following ivsults have been obtained and may be seen: At Perseverance. In the Perseverance division the roadways and transportation to the mine have been finished. The under ground development in the way of shafts, drifts and crosscuts is on sched ule and is being driven on the bouus system at a high rate of speed. More [ than 300 men are at work in this department carrying out the develop ment plans of the engineers. On the outside, in this division, boarding houses, lodging houses, club house, compressor plant and all nec essary equipment for a mining crew of from 500 to 750 men, are in process of erection. At Sheep Creek. In the Sheep creek division, the wharves, warehouses, roadways, din ing room, lodging houses, compressor plants, etc.. necessary to the con struction of this plant, are nearlng completion, mitlsites have been cleared of timber and a crew of upwards of 200 men are actively engaged in carry ing out the details of constructing the camp and preparing the site for the steel mill and rock crushing plant. The construction on the latter will commence within sixty days. The railroad connecting these mills with the adit tunnel Is being built and is over half completed. The big ad it tunnel is now in 5,000 feet and is being driven at the rate of close onto 600 feet per month. On this tunnel a world's record has been sustained from the start in driving a hard rock tunnel from one face. A complete experimental plant cap ? able of treating upwards of 100 tons ' of ore per day has been built and is in operation for the purpose of de termining the exact detailed treat ment of the ore and also to show just the exact quantity, size and type of each class of machinery necessary to the treatment of the ore. This, so to speak. Is a pilot mill or preliminary mill to the big mill and useful for the 4-I-1 I purpose of determining the exact flow sheet of the big mill. Altogether in this division over JOO men are engaged in this construction and development work and new men are being added us rapidly us the work can be planned for them. At Salmon Creek. In the Salmon creek division, the wharves, railroad and complete trans portation system from the tide-water : to the dam site, a distance of four miles, lias been built and is in opera tion. The lirst power unit lias been erected and is running, furnishing pow er to Perseverance mine. The foun dations for the dunt are about finished; tlie cement mixing plant, gravel wash ing plant and necessary equipment for the construction of this dam are com plete, so that pouring of the concrete; in the dam will bo started not later than July 20th. When finished, the dam will com prise some 00,000 yeards of concrete and require upwards ol 15,000 tons of ( cement. The latter is transported by j ships from Seattle and thence by barges and railroad to the dam site. All of the power lines, etc., have been finished and the electric power from this development is in use both in the Perseverance aud Sheep creek divisions. The Alaska-Gastiueau, during its construction and preliminary operat ing period is now employing over 1,000 men and when in operation, for the first unit will employ between 1200 and 1500 men. in this general development pro gram and in the equipment of these properties the best individual skill and expert knowledge In their respective departments in the mining field of fices of the United States has been brought to bear, it being the intention of the operators to make this equip ment absolutely scientific and first class in every department The same is true of the Alaska-Juueau proper ties and the development program con templated for this group is practically the same as that for the Alaska- Gas tineau. Safe and Certain. A point of interest to the casual ob server and student of industries may be mentioned here, viz: That whereas certain types of min ing are highly speculative and pro ductive of distrust, that the character and type of mining and milling in this district is quite the reverse. The de posits are commercial in character, their nature and value absolutely de termined. and no point in the whole scheme uncertain. For this reason they not alone afford an ideal and safe investment but also one which will continue for upwards of one hundred years from the present measured ore bodies. At the same time, this char acter of enterprise creates an ideal condition for the merchant and labor er. assuring the laboring man of con tinous and permanent work on the one hand and the merchant of a sub stantial and a long lived trade. On this account the continuity can build along substantial and permanent lines and not fear the ever-changing condi tions usually found in placer or high grade mining camps. As an Illustration of what this type of mining means to the laboring man, the Treadwell mines have paid out | of the fifty millions of dollars which they have extracted from the rock to ! the miner and laborer more that half, in fact, a little over twenty-six mil lions of dollars. The proportionate amount that the laboring man and merchant receive from the low grade deposits is far higher than in high grade mining camps. This local development adjacent to j Juneau, on account of its great mag nitude, has been of great benefit to all of Alaska in attracting the atten-| jtion of mining operators and inves tors from all over the world. o?o?o SHEEP CREEK LAMBS WANT A GAME The baseball bug lias reached Sheep creek and that camp has become thor oughly innoculated. Syd. Terry is probably one of the greatest fans in the country and he has organized the Shee|f Creek Lambs. "Oh, yes, we've got some players out there," said Syd., "and we want to have a try with Carter's crowd, or an other aggregation on Castincau chan nel. I'm Rotting into the game myself.
