Mr. Vf. O. Cheeuey, practical miner

hi former times, considerable mining had
been carried on, ai there are still visible
the remains ol old mining shafts, and
rude furnaces wjierc smelting had been
done. He says: "Of the old mining
slmlts or pits, there have been some lllty
reiortcd, principally In the counties or
Hell. San Sab 1, Menard, Mason, nnblu
