IMPORTANCE OF I
MINING REVIVAL
IIBLHNA —Were the govern
ment to (subsidize the mining In
dustry, It will support 12.4 tUmes
as many people as agriculture.
Dr. F. A. Thomson, president of
the State Schol of Mines, de
clared In a talk before the Hel
ena Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Thomson urged upon Hel
ena peple the importance of the
mining industry to Helena.
While millions of dollars worth
of gold have been taken from the
Helena district there Is no reas*.
on to believe that this rich pro -1
duction region has been exhaust-1
t
ed. he said. He added that there
Is a definite revival in mining in
the State and urged Helena to
awaken to its opportunities.
COMSTOCK BUYS
HALF INTEREST
IN BASIN MINE
SAN FRANCISCO — Orlando
McCraney, president of Comstock
Gold Pont! Mining company, an
nounced today kis company has
acquired a half interest in the
Jib mine of Basin, Mont. The
mine produces gold, silver, cop
per and zinc, with gold account
ing tor about 70 percent of the
production values.
Production was reported to be
$45,000 in the last half of 1922.
following reopening of the mine,
which had been cloaed most of
the time* since 1925.
Former operator« reported pro
duction of $1,<6>5S,000 was ob
tained from ore asaying $14.19
a ton on the old price of $20.07
an ounce for gold.
OUTLOOK FOR
SILVER BILL
IS PROMISING
WASHINGTON—Silver remon
etization advocate« have united
their efforts on ths modified
Die® silver farm relief bill which
will allow the use of silver tor
the purchase of surplus farm pro
ducts for export. It has been a
mended by Senator Thomaa of
Oklahoma to authorize the sec
retary of the treasury to take
title to all domestic silver and
pay for the metal with silver
certificates Issued against the
silver on a basis of $1.29 per
ounce.
The price to be paid would
not be less than the highest
world price paid for spot fine
silver on the day preceding the
Issuance of the proclamation tor
the nationalization of silver.
The difference between that price
and $1.29 would accrue to the
treasury, until the world price of
silver reaches $1.19 per ounce
or until the general price lev
el of 1920 has been eetabll«hed.
MINERS ARE WORSTED
