VOL. III.. NO. 001. JUNEAU, ALASKA, WEDNESDAY, FEB. 25, 1914. PRICE, TEN CENTS Alaska-Juneau Mill to Start Next Week Next week It Is expected that the first unit of the great Maska-Juueau reduction piaut, being erected in the City of Juneau, will be in operation? that is to say that portion of the first unit known as the pilot mill will start grinding. This fraction of the first unit consists of forty stamps and oth er machinery which will extract the values from the ore that comes from the mine development and at the same time serve as an experimental station for the treating of all the different grades of ores that are encountered in that development. In this way the mine and the reduction plant will grow to full proportions harmoniously. The plant when complete will have a capacity, according to Gen. Supt. R. A. Klnzie of about three times that of the combined Treadweli mills. It will require much work to get the mine de velopment extended sufficiently to supply the tonnage required. Geo. Supt. R. A. Kinzie said this morning that the mill is practically completed and that as soon as some repair work can be made on the traf fic line the task of filling the ore bins i will be started. It is thought that the j line will be ready to deliver ore by j March 1st and it is expected that on the anniversary of the inauguration of President Woodrow Wilson operations in the first unit of the great reduc tion plant will be started. Victor Clauson is superintendent of ( the mill construction and will have | charge of the mill operations. He will , have under him a specially picked crew from the great Treadweli mills? j men of large experience in the treat- j ing of ores of the Juneau gold belt. George C. Jones, who has been sup erintendent in charge of the Alaska Juneau mill and mine operations for years, will continue in charge but will have more time to devote to the mine i development. ? ? ?
