RICH GOLD STRIKE REPORTED NEAR GARNET
Deer Lodge Baker Hits $87 Ore-Two Truck Loads Yield 7 Ounces * I V. A. Harpole, Deer Lodge bakery shop proprietor, and associates, were rewarded for their months of digging in the old Mammouth workings at Colonia, 3j/> miles northwest of Garnett, Missoula county, when their drills cut the granite limestone contact 1830 feet from the portal of the tunnel and opened a three foot vein of high grade gold ore said to average $87 per ton. Two truckloads sent to Washoe ampler returned 7 oz. gold per ton. Specimen rock contained pure gold a quarter inch thick between banded hematite. Harpole dug out $1600 in a few' hours from a pocket. The tunnel tapped the ore at 700 feet in depth and a considerable tonnage is estimated. The Mammouth projierty has been shut dow r n since 1890 when work was suspended by the Mammouth Consolidated Gold Mining Co. of Brooklyn. Associated with Mr. Harpole in the lease are Al Pflug of Kellogg, Idaho, Cal Aikins and Al Schimmel of Deer Lodge. Haqiole said that doughnuts helped drive the tunnel and that he expected the mine to furnish the doughnuts in the future including medical colleges educations for his two sons. MINING EXHIBIT FOR MONTANA AT DENVER MEETING Acting on the request of a com mittee from the Montana Mining association, headed by Clinton M. Ross of Madison county. Montanans, Inc., are undertaking the work of getting together and financing a mining exhibit at the meeting of the American Mining congress, which is to be held in Denver, September 28 to October 3. The mining committee will fur nish the technical advice concerning the character and scope of the ex hibit. All mine operators In Mon tana are being urged to cooperate to make this one of the outstanding exhibits of the congress. As a nucleus for the exhibit. Montanans, Inc., have already se cured the consent of the Union Bank & Trust company to dis play Its collection of gold nuggets. Those who have seen this collection declare that it is the outstanding one of its kind in the United States. It will be sent to Denver under special guard. T think it is extremely important to Montana operators that we have adequate representation at the Den ver meeting," Mr. Roos said. "The committee believes that the right sort of a display will result in bringing additional operators to the state and we all know that this would benefit not only the mining industry, but also every resident in the state of Mlontana. We are ex pecting 1(>0 per cent cooperation from the mining operators of the state in staging this display." JIDGK CHF.ADLE PASSES LEWISTOWN—Funeral for Judge Edgar K.

Hutes, *1A0 up MINING ENGINEER» GEOLOGISTS MINING MEN WELCOME j WjlJW M., SL " Speaking before a luncheon club in Butte, Carl J. Trauerman, presi dent of the Mining Association of Montana, stated that gold produc tion in 1935 was 52 per cent higher than its 1934 production, equal to 4 percent of the gold pro duction of the United State«. Were it not for the impediments pro vided by the federal securities act, the Montana mining industry would be booming, he said. In 1935 Montana, in addition to her gold production had an output of 9.370_00(i ounces of silver which was double the production of 1934* This gain was comparable to that of the nation as a whole, he said. But Montana's gold production for the year was 32 percent greater than the general gain for the nation, he said. He drew two conclusions from these figures with regard to Mon tana, namely; There are not many mines in Montana that can produce silver alone, while there are a num ber of mines that can operate mainly on gold. and. that the pres ent price of gold will be maintained —that the price may even go higher. Miners' Best Bet The Montana miner's "best bet" today, he said, lies in gold pro duction although but little has been done to develop the low grade gold ore bodie«. He reviewed the gold and silver mining activities in a number of districts, spoke of the fine showing that has been made by a number of mines, said that the idea of a government smelter was impractical, and stressed the importance of mining to the entire state. "All that is now needed to further stimulate mining—gold and silver mining in Montana." he said, "is more capital." Considerable effort is being made along this line. In the outside camps today, he stated, more than 5,000 men are employed, to the consequent profit of the state. "If we in Butte and other sections of the state desire the added business and the employ ment that wll result from new and stimulated mining activities, said, " we must do two thing» Do all we can to bring new capital | for development and elect to pub lie office those who will help rather than hinder the mining industry." T i| he U. S. MINERAL LANDS ARE OPEN FOR FILING In the early days of prospecting in Colorado little attention was paid to any of the minerals ex cepting gold and silver. Now the locator of a mining claim may benefit from at least a dozen min erals which have come Into de mand, in addition to gold and silver, such as lead, zinc, conper, molybdenite, berlyyium, vanadium, tungsten, maganes-e, feldspar, fluor snar, vermicullte, tantallte, etc. The prospector may thus have the benefit of many minerals in making his location on government land. Practically all lands except mineral lands have been withdrawn from entry and location. Now is un paP entlv the last chance to get ghare ôf Government land, Thj8 l8 ^uly a mineral age.

He will next year publish the result of his exhaustive work, which will be of value to mining engineers and others. "The Cambrian rocks in this par of the Rocky mountains can be divided into nine formation«." Dr. Deiss says. "These formations total approximately two thousand feet In thickness and all belong to the Middle Cambrian, or what Is known as the Alberton." In contrast, the east and middle parts of the state have both Middle and Upper Cam brian rocks. Fossils have been found at seven levels in sections of these rocks measured at 21 different places throughout the area he has covered. Fossils found include trilobites, brachte pode, sponge spicules and algae. By means of these seven faunas or groups of animals, within these different sections it is now possible accurately to map these rocks throughout the Rocky moun tain region of the state. Dr. Delss's trip took him and a small party of assistants through the "primitive areas" of the Sun river and the south fork of the Flathead river in the Lewis and Clark range, the southern part of the Flathead range and the south eastern part of the Swan range. During the entire trip every camp except one was above 7,500 feet. The Scapegoat mountain camp was at 8,300 feet. "The state bureau of mines and gology was founded primarily to develop the natural resources of the state, particularly those of a mineral and non-mineral geologic nature," Dr. Dies« says. "In at tempting to map the natural re sources of the state some fifteen years ago it was • discovered that such a map could not be made until the geologic formations were known and understood." ^ During the past seven summers. Dr. Deiss. partly in connection with t,he late Dr. C. H. Clapp, president of Montana State university, and partly by himself, has studed the rocks in the mountains of northwest Montana in an attempt to learn what natural rock formations are GENERAL ELECTRIC WIRING AND MAINTENANCE MATERIALS GENERAL ELECTRIC SUPPLY CORPORATION Warehouse« at BUTTE, BILLINGS, Montana . present in that part of the state. "But," he says, "It was found about five years ago that If we attempted to master all of the rocks at one time, we should have such a large field that we would accomplish nothing. For this rea son I was compelled to work only in the ancient Beltian rocks of the late Proterozoic, and upon the oldest rocks—the Cambrian—of the next era, the Palaozoic. "During the past four years, an understanding of these rocks has grown until now they are reasonably well understood." BURNED TIMBER IN LITHE RDCKIES CAN BE USED FOR MINES Much of the timber burned in the recent forest fires in the Little Rocky Mountains will be suitable for mine timbers, according to W. B. Willey, forest supervisor. About 40,000 acres were burned—about half the national forest area. One of the two fires was traced to a man employed by a mining com pany, he said. This man appar ently fell asleep while smoking in a tent. It set fire to the tent and spread to the hills. The first fire was started by campers. The mines are working again, following complete cessation during the time the miners were fighting fire to save the camps.
