ing engineer, in a speech delivered be

said, in commenting on the Bonanza
copper mine, in the Copper river valley:
"A 8 a matter of fact, theGuggemheim'a
control a copper mine in the in
terior of Alaska that is a wonder in its
way, yet caunot be rated at more than
a third-class property. The mine, the
Bonanza, is a sort of copper- plated gold
brick, in that an interior core of lime
stone is surrounded by phenomenally
high grade bornite and copper glace.
No competent mining men who have
visited this property have estimated the
amount of ore in sight and safely to be
inferred, as capable of producing more
than 100,000,000 pounds of finished
copper, h total production equivalent
to only one year's maximum output by
any one of the six leading copper
mines of the world."
