I I .j. [From Beaton .Vea-3 Bureau. April 23.] I V T BOSTON?D. C. Jackllng, -now in Now York, says in conversation with tho Boston News Bureau: Utah Copper.* "The most gratifying achievement at our properties during the past year was the demonstration that we were able to cut down our operations to SO',' of normal without any perceptible increase in costs per unit of output. At Utah Copper our cost during the second quarter of the year, working full time, was cents per pound of copper; for the fourth quarter work' ing haif time the cost was 7.7 cents per pound. At Chino our cost for the second quarter was 7.7 cents and for the fourth quarter under some adverse conditions it had increased oniv to S cents. At Ray Consolidated our cost during the fourth quarter was :>.l cents, the lowest ilgure the mine has ever made. "The secret of its all is unit opera tion. Our operations are so divided into units of reasonable size as to produce maximum flexibility. "Our aim at all of our properties has been to secure tho best talent, and we are willing to pay well for it. This also was a factor. "We reduced our stripping expend-. 'tares somewhat Inst year at Utah Copper, as we were well ahead of im mediate requirements. This stripping wil" proceed this year and next at about the same rate as last, but we are approaching the peak of this par ticular expense, and after 1916 this should be a gradually decreasing item of cost. "We are making important metal lurgical improvements at our Utah mills which will enable us on the same tonnage of ore to extract from 15 per cent, to 20 per cent, more copper, and the additional recovery will be ob tained at a nominal cost. , Alaska Gold. "At the Alaska Gold property we are running one section of a plant of four sections originally designed for a ca pacity of 6000 tons of ore per day. in one section wo are now running we are treating about 1500 tons per day. We are increasing this right along and have at certain times treated as high as 2500 tons. "We know that our plant will have -a capacity 1 times greater than it was designed to treat, in other words, instead of milling 6000 tons per day we shall treat between 10.000 and 12. 000 tons, in these four units. "During the month of March, wo treated about 42,000 tons and wo dem onstrated that our mining cost will be considerably below original estimates. In fact, our mining cost for that month jwas only 14 cents nor ton. "We have produced fnr enough to make it clear that we shall be ablo to mine and mill our ore at a cost 20 per cent, lower than wo had origin ally figured. "Our tailings losses are under 25 cents a ton and our ores, when we have obtained them from normally dis tributive points, have been running I from $1.80 to $2.00 per ton. Our re coveries have been in excess of $1.50. The whole operntlou. however, is so vast that the figures to date are mere ly indicative and confrmatory rather than final. The property has workod out remarkably well. Every anticlpa ; tion is being more than realized. "We expect to put another unit in operation the first of June and an othor the first of July. The fourth j unit will come slow as much will de pend upon a further Incroaso in our power supply and the progress of put ; ting ourselves in shape underground to supply the larger ore tonnage. By the first of next year wo should be treating 7000 tons of ore per day, per haps with three units, perhaps with i four. By that time our mine will bo abreast of requirements and our pow er supply will have been developod ! ahead of our plant capacity. "At any capacity that would be com mercially conceivable the tonnage of ore at Alaska Gold is so great that the life of the property should bo stated not in years, but in generations. "While we started with the Perse : veranco vein, we are now working on 1 lour different vein systems, two of which are much larger than the orig inal vein system which served as a i basis for the purchase of the proper ty. On one of these new vein sys tems from which wo are now deliver ing oro to tho mill wo have developed, entirely aside from the Persovcranco vein, a tonnage that would in Itself much Taore than warrant the whole enterprise. Ray Consolidated. "At Ray Consolidated last year, just [ before curtailing operations we re- i duced our cost to below 8% cents per pound and I am willing to make the prediction that this year our cost will be lower than ever before. We are treating S500 tons of ore per day, and our mining "construction expense is decreasing very rapidly. "I.ast year our output of copper was 5.S.OOO.OOO pounds, against 53,000,000 pounds the year before. Barring the .unforeseen we should this year pro duce 20 per cent, more than last at a; c< st of not over 8 cents. In every re spect 1916 should be the banner year in the history of the Ray property, 'i here Is not a single "out" In the whole proposition, and we have Import ant economocics under way which will materially increase our production from the same tonnage of ore. Chlno. -There is little now that can be said concerning Chino" other than that we i-xpec: lo show a 20 per cent, increase j in our output this year over last at j the same or a lower cost. There arc no unsolved problems confronting us. It is now merely a question of work ing out our plans and applying new economies as they suggest them selves. "Tlic best results at all of our prop j crties have been the worst that should 1 apply in the future."
