? SHEEP CREEK TUNNEL I
WILL BE FINI8HED TODAY J
, (Continued from Pago Que.)
Each shift consisted of one shift
! boss, eight machine men, six muck
ers, one carman, one motorman and
one brakeman. Also three men were
employed on the air and ventilating
pipes nnd on the ditch and floor.
1 P. H. O'Neil was In entire charge
i of the Sheep Creek crew from the
start to the finish, and this great rec
i ord was due to his untiring energy
; and skill in handling this work.
Guarding Against Accidents.
Among the remarkable features con
nected with the great undertaking is
the care that has been exercised
throughout to guar<* against nccidents,
and the resulting comparative free
; dom from casultles of any nature.
Plans For Today.
Last evening tho following schedule
was arranged for the closing hours of
the work: The Perseverance crow
! was to drill five feet and the Sheep
Creek crew 4 % feet and both fire at
0 p. m. Sheep Creek was to drill 4%
! feet and fire at 2 a. m. this morning
and another 4% feet at 8 a. m. this
morning, while Perseverance was to
drill 6 feet and fire at 10 n. m. this
morning and then leave. This would
leave about 10 feet, which it wns ex
pected would be drilled and fired in
I the last shot from the Sheep Creek
, face early this afternoon. It wns nr
; ranged that each crew would leave
| the opposite face while the other crew
i was firing.
I Character of urouna.
This tunnel, which Is practically all
a drift, has been driven along the gen
eral strike of the formation, and a
short distance on the foot wall side
of tho contact and the ore zone of the
j country rock. Excepting a few hun
dred feet the rock encountered was a
greenstone and a hard meta gabbro.
No timber was required beyond the
surface gravel encountered at the Por
tal and the whole tunnel Is considered .
very hard rock.
A one-inch water line has been kept !
well up to thee fac ir. order to wash '
down the muck pile Immediately after !
the round has been fired. This Is |
done to kill the gas as soon as possi- !
ble.
Driving Speed.
For the entire time an average speed j
of approximately 550 feet per month .
was maintained and the longest dis- ]
tnnce driven for any single month ?
wns in November, 1913,- 661 feet. The j
best single week was 198 feet, and ?
j during March, 1914, a distance of 231 |
feet was driven in eight consecutive ?
days.
During March 1914, the distance ?
driven from both ends, which includes ]
part of the crosscut at the Persever- '
ance side, will be approximately 950
feet. About 9,500 feet was driven from
the Sheep Creek side, all from one j
face?compared to nny other similar t
tunnel it is in all probability the best
record for speed ever made under like
conditions.
Drilling.
Four machines were used at the
breast, two at the top bar and two on
the bottom bar. The bottom bar is j
set up In about thirty minutes after r
the top bar, which is the time required
to clear away muck enough to give
i room to work these two machines, a
The drilling crew consists of eight *
men, four on the top bar and four on \
the bottom bar.
Equipment. j
Four "E 44-inch 3V4 piston drills j
were used on two nine-foot horizontal 3
bars 4 VI inches in diameter. Four ex
tra machines were always kept in re
pair and on hand to replace any that i 1
I might break.
Ventilation is furnished by four high
speed exhaust fans, driven by a Gen
! oral Electric 20-h.p. motor, runnitfg at .
a full speed of 1740 revolutions per
minute. These fans are placed at an 3
'approximate distance of 3,000 feet j,
: apart, and all are used as exhausters. r
1A 15-inch diameter galvanized iron t(
pipe was used for ventilating. .,
Compressed air is furnished to the tl
J machines by an Ingersol Rand 22 x 13 f,
x 16-lnch Imperial type compressor, 3
driven by a General Electric 200-h.p -
motor.
For one-half the distance a 7-inch n
casing pipe was used and the other 0
half a 6-inch standard gauge pipe was -
used. The pressure at the face was
approximately 105 pounds.
The cars used were lVfc-ton side s
dump, roller-bearing, and are handlod *
by a Jeffrey storage battery locomo- _
tive. Fifty pound rails wero used
throughout the tunnel, and the gauge n
of the track was 54 inches. No switch- _
es were used in the main tunnel, but -
stations at definito intervals were
made by laying iron slick sheets ''
side of the track and empty cars were ^
transferred to these by the carmen
A-ho simply used a crowbar. A short
track, 25 feet long, was placed over 8
the end of the rails as needed, ao that r,
the car to be loaded could be kept at -
; the muck pile at all times.
The drills were sharpened by a No. a
5 Ingersoll-Rand drill sharpener add si
as high as one thousand drills per day
have been sharpened whenver very .,
hard rock was encountered. g
