Manifests Extensive Development* Daring the Year—Gratifying Prospecta for 1884 —Over $40,000 Expended In Substantial Improvement« Which Will Tell In *84— Items Concerning the Mine« and Mining Prospect« of the Gulch—The Greatest Gold Region of Montana East of the Belt Rang*. I promised when I left Livingston to give The Ekterpbise occasional letters from this portion of the great mineral world of the Upper Yellowstone, but the many items of work in the erection of cabins, ore houses, prospecting and open ing up leads, (located during the past summer,) from beneath heavy masses of snow, have so fully occupied my time that I hate been compelled to remain silent down to the present writing. I give promise, however, (now that my hand is in,) that henceforth I will keep your very enterprising and readable paper quite fully posted on the developments in the gold belt of Bear and Crevice gulches as they progress, as well as the discover ies of scores of rich gold leads which a close inspection of die belt assures me must be made at a very early date. LOCATION OF THE GOLD BELT. The quartz lodes of this district run northwesterly from beyond Crevice gulch, across Crevice, Baldy, Mineral, Pine Mountains and Forks of Bear Creek, pointing directly towards tlie head of Emigrant Gulch, near which they become capped with lava fondations. Taken in its entire extent, the mineral licit, as far as prospected, is known to lie at least twelve miles in length, by from four to five miles in breadth. Bear Gulch, or Sheep Eater mining district, as it was formerly called, was first discovered and worked for placer gold in 1866-7. All along Bear and Crevice gulches many thousands of dollars in placer gold were taken out by the old-time prospec tor. At one place near the mouth of Bear (.'reck there is a bare bed rock to be seen about fifteen feet square, where dur ing the time when the sixties were in creasing in size, an adventurous pioneer took out only a trifle less than $3,000 in a few hours of excavation. At another point, in less than one-half day, a miner extracted over $1,100. Scattered along the gulch numerous other places are seen whose pockets paid the ancient Bear Gulchcr their thousands. During the past summer, fall and present winter, Joseph Brown, the pioneer of the gulch, with a force of men has been steadily at work, blasting boulders along and con tiguous to the channel of the creek, and enlarging the flume on the west side of the gulch, in anticipation of placing m position in the gulch a short distance be low the mouth of Palmer creek, in the spring, the largest and most powerful HYDRAULIC APPARATUS ever operated in the territory of Montana. Tliis apparatus consists of heavy boiler iron, hydraulic pipe fourteen inches in diameter, with riveted spiral seam and nipple flange, in lengtlis of twenty-five feet each, tested to required margin of safety, with a bursting preasure of 1000 pounds per square inch. It is operated by the Little Giant Motor. Fall of water from mouth of flume trt bed rock, 600 feet. There will be two four-foot flumes, ouc on each side of the gulch, carrying' as we are intormed by Lieut. Eaton, alxmt 7,500 cubic inches of water, taken out of Bear Gulch some three miles from its mouth. The ground has Ijeen thoroughly prepared for the opera tion of this extensive apparatus in the early spring. A large force of men will be employed by this hydraulic raining company and it is confidently believed by those who have closely examined the ground, that the projectors will reap rich rewards as the result of their enterprise. The monthly payments to their men will •certainly invigorate trade in the vicinity of Bear Gulch. OTHER PLACERS. In this connection something specific about other placers scattered throughout this dictrict may l*e in order. The ground skirting the Yellowstone river on the north side, from the mouth of Bear Gulch to a point about one mile below the ferry, has been located by Messrs. Trout. Ken nedy, Byam, Bacon, Flaherty and others, in August last. We examined these claims in several places and found rich ru«*rrfâiw*î .P.'ijîs *;
