E. .1. l'. Ralston, M- E., in the World’s Pair edition of Nevada s iiutural and industrial resources, discusses the mining aspect of 1 lie State from the position of an outsider as follows. In die nomenclature of mining 1 here are no two words that so fully stand for an antithesis as “Bonanza’’ and “Borraseu. They express respectively the very too and the bottom condi tions—the auti-cline and t.hes.vn* (dine—in the graphics of mineral production- To no one of the precious metal producing States does such an expression so pe culiarly apply as to Nevada, yet few of our Western States have greater inherent possibilities. Traversed, as il is, by a series of north and south ranges: its drainage outlets to the sea walled by impervious escarpments, and ils surface largely devoid of tim her, the State seems uninterest ing. And yet closer scrutiny v. ill prove this to be wrong. Its in comparable distances, sweeping contours, and inathnietieal pro tiles seem a revelation to the lover of perspective and the sin dent of parabola. So, too, are i its economic geology and its min , ing possibilities equally as en gaging and full of promise. \ consideration of the. following salient facts must lead one irre sistibly to that conclusion The relative magnitude of Ne vada with respect to many other States is quite as striking as her physical characteristics. In deed, it is so impressive that one is surprised when seeing it set in juxtaposition to other p.-rlcps better known territory. Thus, in point of area, Nevada is w itliin less than one per cent the same size of the now defunct South African Republic. it, is more than twice the size of the < (range Free State: the same size as Aus tralia; more than half as large as the German Empire; larger than New Zealand, and within less than seven per cent the size of Great Britain and Ireland. its area is a trifle greater than the aggregate of Maine, New Hamp shire. Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New .Jersey, West Virginia and Maryland- Japan, with her 43,000,<W)<> inhabitants, is only one-third larger than Ne vada with her uO,000 people. Here surely is an inglorious em pire, a forgotten commonwealth. With a territory so large and so completely impressed, as in deed it is, with the most favor able geological conditions, it must very properly engage t.In attention of the miner, now per haps more than ever before, li was the cradle of quartz mining in the United State, and its pio neers in that industry carved out, a record in production never equalled in the world. Its en gineers achieved success in thy face of apparently insurmount able obstacles and crystalized and perfected economic methods which became new criteria for the industry on all parts of the globe. Those were the Bonanza days. Later, then\sti per veiled years of depression. Many of lie mines were abandoned; many were believed to be worked out; others were closed because the ores had heroine impoverished and would not yield a profit alter paying reduction charges which in the light of modern practice were excessive .Much of 'lie capital was withdrawn tr> in lie State, anil the money H, gs sought that congenial envi >n ment in social and commercial centers which wealth can always' Command. Those w ere the I ,or rasca days. Hut new and verile blood is being injected into the veins ol ■ the State, and a firm and int Ili : g»nt. hold is being taken upon ; her mining and industrial pns.-i hilities. iSupplomentiug territorial ex tent with other criteria equally as great invites slill closer inves tigation- Nevada's position! among the great mineral produc ing stall's of this country and of the world is of the first uiugni tude. Colorado and California; only outrank her in the produc tion of gold and silver in the pe rind embraced between Lslili and 1 I DO'-’, both inclusive. The rel utive production of these three1 states within this period is us follows: Colorado, gold and -il ver, $7ll.iioii,ii()0: California. I gold and silver, $()20,000,000; Xe vaila gold and sj I ver $70 I .ooo.i >oi i. In the year 1961. Nevada rank ed eighth of liie HI gold-prodin- j iug Statci and fifth of the ! I silver pit id nrin.: si ates. I n the -si me | year, of the II gold producing i count ri- s of I lie world, Nevada's, position w is t well'tli, and of the! lib silver producing countries ol j the world. Nevada stood eighth 1 I n IP. >2 her p. ".il ion was even j more llattering. Although only convalescing from a long period of suspended production, her position was eighth ol the nine teen gold producing states, and fifth of I he :.'i in silver prodm tion. Inllie same year, of tic 2d countries of the world report ed, her rank in production of gold was eleventh: ill silver, seventh of In countries. Or again, still emphasizing the! magnitude of her productions, il has been more than the pres, nl national debt of the lielgimn: al most as much as the debt of the tlermun Kmpire, and more than 1 wife that of t he pugnacious .lap. Yet the assessed valuation of the st ate in 1902 was only $2Ki>0ti.cM>() —an expression of very econom it-aI government. It is only recently that some of the captains of mining finance have again I u rued their at ten i i on to Nevada. The stale is now feeling tile thrill of renews 'I \ ig or. New and important mineral discoveries have recently been made, while old properties, par ticularly the Comstock, arebo.ng rejuvenated, and are again be ginning to produce. Others, which were believed to have been worked out, are, as so often hap pens, again yielding merchant able ores. Nevada, perhaps more than any other state, will become re sponsive to this latter condition. Many of the mines were worked in the days when reduction costs were much higher than they are today, and when the percentage of saving was lower. These two rebellious facts alone have, put limitations upon a large number With the Giroux Con, • Mines Co.
