CLAIM HEW MACHIHE
SAVES "FLOOR" GOLD
While in Spokane recently,
Oscar Torgerson and W.
Marineau had occasion to
vestigate a placer gold ma
chine, one that will
flour gold. As explained by
official of the Union Iron
Works, the machine is espec
catch
ially designed to wiork ground
too small for dredging opera
tions or which does not justi
fy the large investment
quired for dredging. He says
his machine will cost but
small fraction of the cost of
dredge and under ordinarily
favorable conditions the oper
ating cost will be less than 10
cents a yard. In general terms
the mjachine invented by Mr.
Moore which is being con
structed by the Union Iron
Works, Spokane, consists of
a hopper, conveyor, grizzly,
trommel, sluice boxes and tail
ings stacker. A modern power
shovel is used for digging and
handling the gravel, while
separate movable washing

■HIT STATE INDUSTRY
LIVINGSTON—The large travertine
deposit at Gardiner, which the Northwest
Improvement company, associated with the
Northern Pacific, has been developing the
past year, has been drawing the increasing
interest of Park couny people as a potential
new industry.
Mines, in a story released this
week, says of travertine:
Building »tone of Antiquity
Travertine, a form of lime
stone, the building stone of an
tiquity, from which many of the
famed structures of history such
as the St Peter's church and the
Colosseum at Rome were erected,
is being mined in Montana in
large quantities, according to re
cords at the Montana School of
Mines.
{Montana has what are prob
ably some of the largest traver
tine, or "marble onyx" deposits
in the world. Great blankets of
it exist near Gardiner and Man
hattan as well as near Lewis
town and smaller deposits else
where. The present extent of the
stone in Montana is estimated to
be about 20 to 25 square miles
from available data. Several of
the Gardiner and Manhattan
in
at
stone specimens have been re
ceived at the School of Mines
from the Northwest Improvement
company which is now querying

The Manhattan quarry la about
six miles north of the town and
the Gardiner quarry is about one
and a half miles west of Gardi
ner. Both ere yielding a beau
tiful banded rock that takes a
high polish. The Manhattan stone
is the mote compact and shows
very delicate shading in the thin
bands which are interspersed
through It. It Is somewhat trans
lucent.
In speaking of the alone. Dr.
E. S. Perry, professor of geology
at the School of Mines and chief
geologist for the Montana bu
reau of mines, says:
