on Chariot mine
fession in America ;
his reports are relied on b/ capitalists every
!
where in purchasing mining property :
This mine is situated on War Eagle mount
ain, near Silver City, lit the Owyhee Mining j
District, Idaho Territory.
The length of the claim upon the vein is
750 lineal feet; audit is a. part of;
formerly know, as the Ida Elmore tut
northern portion of the claim being still
worked under this came.
Vkin.—T he vein « a direction nearly
north and south, with a steep inclination to
the cast. It is encased in a hard granite, and
nuth from one fool to four lenk
vanos in
The average width throughout the whole ex
tent of the works may be safely take
two feet.
(Ikk.—T he ore taken from the mine is ex
ceedingly rich. It consists mainly of quartz
associated with free gold and silver, and tbe
simple, easily worked, suiphurels ol silver.
It yields in the mill from $125 to nearly $200
per ton. The yield lor December, 18H8 hav
ing been at the rale of $190 74, and that for
.January following, at the rate of $154 08
per ton
It is impossible to ascertain how much this
mine has yielded in the past, as a portion of
the ground was worked out before it passed
into possession of tbe present Company ; but
lulling ih« information furniriicU me by the
buiikiTK ol Sliver City with regard to the !
gros.s amount ol bullion produced, anil di ;
riding this sum by the number or ton» |
worked, wbicii would b,- obtained by cubing ;
the dimensions Ol tho ground excavatod, the .
aver.ige must have been between $117 and j
$143 )n*r ton. The Ida Llinore Compati} , ;

Slopes have been raised from this level to

being taken. The vein at the southern end i
of the drift was 16 inches wide, and work
will be continued in this direction until tiro j
seenby^an inspection of tbe accompanying
map that the .shoot m at least 50 leet longer \
ks this level than it was on the one above, j
The shaft has been sunk 104 feet below the |
second level, and drills have been started i
from the bottom beth north and south. Tbe
vein at the southern end of the drift is fully
three feet wide, and the ore excellent, while
at the end of the northern drill it is about
32 inces in width. As soon as slopes can be
opened in theso drifts, the work ol sinking

Between the first and secoud levels north j
of the Shalt, there is a bliick of ore standing ,
; ÄÄ » Ä :
about 1,125 tons remaining. 1
Below tho second level, and down to the
plored'oif two sMe<k and («jtially on a third, i
Lid there are no indications which would
lead me to suppose that the drifts which are
ÄÄtirÄ
atjove The s»?con«l level passed through tx
cellent ore in lioth directions; the shaft has
explored the vein 104 fort below the slopes,
the appearance of the lower drifts is vary
satisfactory, as exposing ore or more than
average width and finally, the Ida Elmore
shalt, which hks been sunk 50 feet north of
the Golden Chariot line, about Ihirty feet
lower than the shaft ol this latter company,
shows at the bottom, as I understand, the
vein as being af good width and carryingex
eellenl ore. While I enlertain no doubt of
the truth of this statement. I was unable to
..toritv it« mrurai v bv mv own observation,
I! therel^ro K-veSd feet ofw^rin the
shaft, and the s.d**s were being timbered l
able however, to examine a point 54

Giant powder is used with

the slopes, provided the new 4 • 75 percent
powder, ' which is now being manufactured,
proves all that is claimed for it in the way of
being stronger, and producing by its combus
tion no noxious fumes. This latter defect is
all that has stood in the wav of its more
general use and application when the rock to
be worked is hard ; and could It be employed
in the drifts and slopes <»f this mine, an
economy ol probably not less than 25 per

CoxcLrsios.—To conclude, therefore, I
would give an my opinion, that this properly
possess** great present aud prospective value
That there are in sight, and thoroughly de
veloped, about 1.200 tons or ore, between the
iirsl and secoud levels, which it api**are safe
to assume will yield an average of $150 per
ton, or $180,000.
That between the second and third levels,
the vein is developed on two sides, and par
tiallv on a third, by the shaft and drifts, and
that'so far ;is explored, there appears every
indication that this portion of the mine will
furnish at least 4,000 tuns of ore the average
value of which, there is now no reason to
suppose, will provo less than that taken from
above.
