Hotte 4'ity—Iler Minen an<I Milia.
Butte, the ceuter of what is now the most
prominent quartz camp in Montana, is lo
cated in Deer Lodge county, lat. 45 deg. 55
min. N., long, about 112 deg. 30 min. W.
from Greenwich. Its latitude is 5.800 feet
above the sea. The name is derived from a
high butte near the town, on which is the
initial point of government surveys. The
town lies on the southern slope of rolling
foothills, and commands the tinest view of
mountain ami miniature valley scenery in the
Territory. Commencing at Silver Bow creek,
one mile south of town, and extending back
for fully five miles, is a belt of new y dis
covered gold, silver and copper leads cover
ing an area of at least twelve miles, that
forms a close net-work over the entire area
—so close and intricate that it is believed by
many that they will in many instances con
verge into a few main lodes. The south
eastern leads in the belt are generally copper
ores, one of which is developed and being
worked at a depth of 155 feet, and several
others at a somewhat less depth. These are
rich in copper, and the principal industry
of the camp, is taking out this ore and slop
ing it raw by wagon and rail to Utah, Balti
more and across the sea for reduction, it pay
ing a good net protit even including the
enormous tariff for transportation. The
other leads are principally silver. Li; tie de
velopment was done in them until within the
past year, and none are open below water,
which comes in at 80 to 100 feet. To the
depths of 40 to 80 feet there are dozens of
leads opened, showing 2 to 5 feet of vein
matter, that will yield $50 to $100 per ton by
mill process, with very little assorting. Many
pockets and rich streaks will many times^sur
pass this, but we are speaking now of what
miners must depend upon—average working
results. There are hundreds of others dis
covered and opened to lesser depth, and the
developments many every week, convince
miners that as good leads as have been, will
yet be, opened. Of those opened, we will
hereafter speak of in detail.
****** On the 1st
day of January, 1875, Mr. Wm. L. Farlm re
located thirteen quartz lodes below Butte on
which representation work had not been done,
as requested by Congressional law'. They
were known as the Black lodes. The Tra
vona and others were so rich that the erection
of the Farlin Mill w'as soon after commenced*
and has just been completed. In the mean
time the Centenuial Mill was erected, and has
been reducing ore for the past month or two,
while from three to five hundred men have
been developing the leads. To-day there are
lodes open and yielding good milling ores
that could keep fifty stamps at least, in con
stant employment, and it is more than pro
bable that many will be in operation before
next winter. There have been, besides the
mills, costing over $100,000, over one hun
dred business houses and residences, erected
within the past year, and the hills are cover
ed with shaft-housts. As soon as the placer
season is over hundreds of miners will come
here, and the indications are favorable for a
vast increase of mining .—Butte Miner.
