Haynes Mines to be Explored
Thoiias E Campbell of the Haynes
Copper Company has returned to the
city from Jerome and made the im
portant announcement that operations
have been resumed on that property
and on a permanent basis
During his trip east last August
arrangements were concluded for am
ple finances to be expended for pros
ecuting deep development and this
will be carried out vigorously in the
future Preliminary to active mine
work the old workings are being un
walered and three weeks will be re
quired to drain the levels The plan
outlined is to sink the main shaft that
has reached a depth of 700 feet to a
point about 1200 feet after which
cross cutting begins to the north and
west faults It is estimated that four
teen months will be required to carry
out this development and the inten
tion is to pass through the leached
zone determined in former operations
greater depth being necessary to give
formal definite results Mr Campbell
views the future of the Haynes as de
cidedly encouraging under the plan
manifested to explore to great depth
as well is it gratifying to the many
stockholders residing in Arizona and
the west to learn that the property is
to be explored sufficiently that abso
lute determinations may be concluded
The Haynes faces a decidedly at
tractive future and the work will be
carried out earnestly and practically
on the lines specified Mr Campbell
also states that the policy of the pres
ent management is to give but little
publicity in the future pertaining to
the development of the property Be
hind the Haynes are men of wide
prominence in mining and financial
circles of the country a guarantee
that the work will be carried out as
outlined Prescott Journal Miner
Plucky Work at Tonopah Fire
The detatls of the fire at the sub
power station at Tonopah which cause
such temporary havoc with the output
of the mills last week was due to the
doing of 25000 worth of damage to
the interior workings of the plant in
which most of the machinery was bad
ly damaged The blaze started in one
of the huge transformers located on the
floor near the front of the building
Overheating is believed to have been
the cause although a short circuit
may have started the trouble Within
a very few minutes the woodwork in
front of the structure was ablaze and
after that the entire interior was filled
with a continuous sheet of while flame
Water applied by the fire depart
ment did not serve to diminish the
Barnes the oil soaked machinery burn
ing until the combustible material had
been completely ruined
The fire was extinguished after an
hours fight The entire town was
plunged in darkness and operations at
the various mines and mills was sus
pended In many instances miners
were forced to climb ladders to the
surface afler completing their shift
The weather was below zero and it
was with difficulty that the firemen
handled the hose Added to this was
the intense heat from within the build
ing and the cold blasts from without
Temporary repairs have been effected
giving the mills the necessary power
to operate New York Mining Age
