possible conveyance and in a few
weeks the hi IN will he alive with
prospectors. The ore from the new
find N similar to that of the Gold
Iload, but the gold is massive and
laces the rock together. Eldorado
Canon, the scene of this late excite
ment, is one of the oldest mining
camps in the state of Nevada, the
discovery of its rainesdatingbackto
thL c.ty, which N the property of j 1SG4, when that section of country
the I'. Jeral Copper Company of j was part of Dona Ana county, New
Arizona", and has lain idle for Mexico, and afterward a part of
months. It is Greene's purpose to
greatly enlarge the capacity of the
plant and to use it for reducing
ores from his mines in the state of
Chihuahua, Mexico.
Guardian: It ia now quite cer
tain that the Ray company will
resume sinking in their main shaft
in January and continue the shaft
to a depth'of 800 feet. It is now
down about 400 feet, resumption
of work on this great property will
give new life to the mining indus
try in the Ray and Kelvin districts
and we predict that before the end
of next year the output of ore in
that section will be of sufficient
magnitude to surprise even the na
tives. Development is the only
Mohave county, with the seat of
county government at Callville, at
the mouth of the Vegas wash. At
one time the camp was one of the
busiest and most prosperous of
Nevada's mining camps, two big
mills being kept in operation and
several hundred men being em
ployed in the mines. At that time
the principal ores of the camp car
ried high values in silver, and
when thaf; metal became a com
modity and depreciated in value
the mines were then closed and the
mills were silent. Chloriders and
miners mined in a desultory way
the past fifteen years and kept a
spark of life in the old camp. Now
I comes the news of this new rich
thing needed to insure that section influence Eldorado Canon will be
permanent prosperity Ihe ore is come one 0, the greatest mining
I .t , - V J B " camps on the coast.
Mohave Miner: In drivirg the
cross tunnel on the Tyro mine,
owned by J. R. Russell, Peter
White, Torn Bosanko, and S. R.
Davis, a six inch vein of $200 gold
ore was cut. Specimens from this
vein show well in free gold. The
mine is located near Sheeptrail
group, in the Union Pass country.
It is expected that the crosscut will
reach the main vein in the next!
thirty davs. So far the driving
has been through very hard!
ground, but since encountering the!
vein matter the ground has soft-'
ened a little and work will proceed j
much faster. The vein on the sur-j
face is an immense one and carries!
excellent values in gold. j
Globe Belt: The production of!
the Old Dominion for the thirty j
. days of November, with two fur-;
naces in commission, was approx-j
imately 2,075,000 pounds of blister!
copper, which is a very creditable
perrormance, especially as me
grade of ore smelted averaged
much lower than in October or any
month previous. The smelter run
was remarkable, as only three
hours were lost during the entire
month, and then the furnaces were
closed down to remove the scale
from the jackets. It has been de
monstrated that the Old Dominion
can maintain an output of 2,000,
000 pounds of copper per month
and that will be its normal pro
duction for five or six months at
least, which is about the time al
lowed for the completion of the im
provements now under way and
planned for the near future. After
that the production may be in
creased. Kingman Miner: From Eldorado
Canon, in southeastern Nevada,
twenty-five miles northwest of
Kingman, come stories of the fab
ulous richness of a find of gold ore.
The lead is situated in the moun
tains, ten miles from the Colorado
river and a short distance from the
Techaticup, one of the oldest mines
in the camp. A large quantity of
the ore has been taken out and
samples from this show its value
lo be about $30,000 in gold to the
