MINING NOTES 01 ? INTEREST Sain lindsay9s. Helena Lease is in Hefa holding companies at present operat ing on lode properties, but leasers are busy so busy In fact that the four mills at Manhattan are kept busy. The leasers are all making good money, as they are taking out rock right along of high milling values, and with no scarcity of it in any quarter. The leasers and .the placer excitement combine to make Manhattan a- lively camp now, and there is no reason for not sharing In the belief of Manhattan residents that their camp will eventually prove to be another one of the big, dividend declaring camps of the state. Good news continues to come in from the Helena (formerly Clifford) district, and the latest Is that fur nished by County Commissioner Sam Lindsay, who is operating a lease on block 16 la that camp. Mr. Lindsay has as his associate in the lease at Helena Henry Smith of this city, and two men are employed on the work ings. Their shaft Is down sixty feet, and. equipped for the time with merely a windlass. Word came to Mr. Lindsay yesterday, however, to the effect that the shaft had broken into a ledge of rich shipping ore, the shaft having cut it for a distance of slightly over three feet, and the bot tom of the shaft still In ore. No as says have been made as yet," but the rock pans a fine showing of yellow, and is so similar to the rich ore that is being taken out. by the Broken Hills mine that there is no doubt of its richness. Mr. Lindsay is highly" elated over his good luck at Helena, even though he says little about it and is making no extravagant claims. It is very likely that the near future will see a power hoist installed on this property and the work of taking out ore com menced in earnest. RED TOP STRIKES GLORY HOLE BODY which lay beyond. The clue was there, however, and under the pounding of power drills the barrier was swiftly battered down, and a marvelous storehouse of golden wealth disclosed. Like a fly ing wedge it opened. Its boundaries are yet unknown. Now the stope is twelve feet wide. Samples across its face give assays of 108, $350 and $1140 and the entire width will break good for $125 per ton. Returns on 107 tons Just re ceived confirm these figures. The drift on the 300--oot level is now being extended south to catch the ore shoot on its downward pitch. and that it Is nearing it is indicated by the $30 values which the breast now shows. They still have 150 feet to drive before the south sideline is reached and there is every indica tion that the ore may prove contlnu ous to that point and beyond, for the drift 'now being extended north from the Red Top shaft toward the Don- nellan and company lease is proving up an immense ore body regarding which most sensational but uncon firmed rumors have been prevalent for several days. Manhattan PI acers are Making 0oo Matt Kane, who Is over from Man hattan, tells a Bonanza writer that the placers et Manhattan are taking up a great deal ' of attention now, there being something like twenty shafts in the placer grounds now and others are in prospect. The placer territory begins in the draw just at the western edge of the town," and continues some four miles to the Junction of the Manhattan draw with the Smoky valley. All of the shafts which have reached bedrock are In rich gravel, and Mr. Kane says that a conservative estimate of the value of the auriferous gravel : Is $8 per yard some running higher and some lower. There is no lack of water for washing, for as soon as the detritus layer Is penetrated and the gravel beds reached, a strong flow of water is encountered. A large aggre eate quantity of machinery , is now arriving at and en route for Mannat tan, consisting of pumps, hoists, etc., and as soon as this machinery is in stalled work of washing the rich gravel will commence. The operations in the Manhattan placers are still in the prospect stage, but so far no shaft has failed to find the gold. The district pros pected to date covers a stretch qf the draw from 200 feet to 300 yards in width, and two and one-halt miles in length, while a shaft at the junction of the draw with Smoky valley has uncovered the values. The drifting from the shafts sunk has not yet been extensive enough to run out of gold bearing gravel. There are none of the original GOLDFIELD, Jan. 13. Twelve feet of ore that will ship at from $100 to $200 per ton as it is broken in the stope is the marvelous show ing that Is now In. sight in the Con solidated Red Top lease, controlled by John Donnellan and company, on the Red Top claim of the Goldfleld Consolidated estate. The ore is spreading in every direction with each round of holes up, down and sideways, and it is believed that bonanza has been disclosed of such startling proportions that it will rank high among the greatest of those which have made Goldfleld famous, From a pinched up streak a few days ago, the ore has widened like fan and beyond the most extravagant expectations which have been 'enter" tained by reason of the splendid promise during recent development of the lease. This is a continuation of the ore lenses which have been noted during the past two or three weeks, but beside which the dis closures of the past pale into insig nificance. It lies between the 225 and 300-foot levels, and is being de veloped in a southerly direction to wards the Consolidated company's shaft on the Red Top. The ore was first encountered on the 300-foot level. A stope was started, but when it had got well un der way the lense narrowed to a small streak; then it opened again at the raise was continued, and then pinched again, but not without hav lng shown the presence of picture ore. Once more the narrow streak spread out, and showed more high grade than ever. This was about ten days ago. Then it pinched again, as though trying to conceal the riches STOCK MARKET Wednesday, January 13. Toiiopali IMstrict. Tonopah Nevada .$6.00 ... Montana 74 ... Tonopah Ex 4o . ...

A rich seam of phenomenally rich ore has been opened up during the past few days by the Grutt Hill Truitt on the estate of the Rawhide Coalition Mines company. The seam comes to the surface in the rear of the Daw son lot, corner of Nevada street and Sunbeam court. It is about six Inches wide and runs high in value. Assays taken show gold, $1,759.60; silver, $721.55; total, $2,481.15 Men are at work now sinking on the find and considerable of this high picture rock is being sacked. The seam seems to be widening a little as depth is attained, and it is likely that quite a handsome return will be netted even from so small a body About three and one-half feet south from the rich seam another de posit of about a foot in width has been uncovered. An average sample taken from this gives gold, $12.80; sliver, $21.10; total, $33.90. This deposit will also be explored and it may come to a junction with depth In this case quite an extensive body of high grade may result from fur ther development. Devedopments are continuing on the winze in the west crosscut of the property and good ore is continually being sacked for shipment tq the Schurz mill. All things considered, the Grutt Hill Truitt is making good progress in developing, into a mine, and those in charge feel highly en couraged at recent developments In the property. CARRIE ARRESTED.
