How Mines are Discovered.
Some months ago II, J. West, F. L.
Smith and George W. Kostor went into
the Boundary Cone country on a prospecting
trip. They located several
claims mid, having to pack water
several miles, concluded to prospect
for water near their locations. They
found indications of water in a vein
near camp and proceeded to sink
the ledge. Soon water was encountered
and the discovery was also
made thai; tho ground was held by
other parties. Arrangements wero soon
made and tho ground purchased for a
nominal Hum. Tho (.haft was then
driven down forty feet, where a supply
of water, ample for camp uses, was obtained.
II. was thought advisable to
cut into the ledge to increase the water
supply when tho joyful discovery of
eighteen inches of eleven ounce gold
ore was made. Tho former owners had
been working on a small stringer of
rich ore on the surface, but it had
pinched out on them and they became
disgusted and quit. Mr. Koster now
writes that, the ore extends to the surface.
Tho ledge is four feet wide -and
everything between walls will pay to
mill. The owners contemplate putting
in a cyanide plant and are now engaged
in developing water on the mines. The
camp of Boundary Cone gives promiso
of rivaling the big gold camps of the
Pacific cot. There are ledges there
the width of which are unknown, but
which have been exploited for a
breadth of forty feet, that will run
from eight to ten dollars to the ton in
gold. The Colorado river is only five
miles away and tho road is over a hard
mea. Judge J. II. West and Steve
Bedell, of Needles, also have rich
property in the district.
The ore is tho best in the world,
from the cyanide standpoint, having
no nutraliiiing agent iu its make-up.
Mr. Smith had a test made at the El
Dorado Canyon cyanide plant last
week and the result exceodod his most
sanguine exjwetation.
Dr. W. A. Hendryx aud Col. Mc-Pherson,

of the gontlemeu is to be commended
in taking hold of tho Golden
Gem. It is one of the very best gold
mines in Arizona.

This week tho agreoment by which
tho Oro Plata and Mariposa mines pass
into tho possession of M. D. Rochcford
and Lambert Smith was signod, the
consideration being 100,000$
Tho Oro Plata is a patented mining
claim in Todd basin and since its dis
covery has produced at least 500,0003.
For years no work had beeu done below
water level and tho oro taken from it
was worked lu mills, arnstras and smelters.
Every leaser made money on the
property and sinco passing into tho
hands of J. W. Gerritt it has b9en a
constant sourco of revenue. The deepest
shaft on the mine is about 240 feet.
Below tho tunnel level iu the last two
years 3255 haH been taken out but tho
blocks of low grade oro has been left
untouched. Under tho now method of
treatment this class of ore can be made
to produce considerable revenue. The
grades of oro shipped have carried
values up to 24 ounces in gold and :XX)
ounces in silver. There are two well
defined veins iu the location which
can be worked through one main
working shaft and each vein carries
pay ore.

success of the cyanide plant now working
the tailings from the old South
western mill. The ores of El Dorado
Canyon are the best adapted to cyanide
treatment of any in tho country
and it is predicted that many plants
will be put in to work the great bodies
of low grade ores in which the district
abounds.

of a visit of Tom Ilesser aud
Dick Bauerbach, of Winslow to
a few years ago. Tom was of the
opinion that Bauerbach could easily
get along without the prefix or sulllx
of his uamo aud therefore decided to
raflle it off. He, therefore, started out
with a lUt aud each man with whom
he met was importuned to take a long
shot at Ilauerbach's name at two bits
a shot. In this way he secured iu the
neighborhood of 100$, which was duly
blown iu for booze for his admiring
constituents. At a dollar a shot the
