There it sink* beneath tbe surface debria, out again appears abore tbe mountain qtarlernary jual aouthweet of and near tbe Pro#|>ect Mountain Tun nel, and elill futber south it underlies the Proapeot Mounain limestone east of and hear tbs Dng Od mine. On tbe eaat flank of Proapeot Mo-.ntain tbe quartzite dips to the east. Tb< granite, wbiob owes its expoaore on thenortherly slops of Pros peot Mountain K erosion, apparently dips under the qaartiite of Kuby Hill. Pre alone to tbe eroson, the great bell of lime stone of Proapsot Mountain and that whiob oonatitutoi the Kuby Hill lode were presumably one and tbe same and formed a oontinuoua body. The faoe of tbe quartzite dips aider tbe limeetone of tbe Kuby Hill lode at an arerage angle of •boot 40 degreis to tbe northeast. Tbe exposure of this body of limestone on tbe surface extends srer 4.000 linear feet from ■ear the ilblon shaft on tbe northwest, wbare it it oorersd by the debria of Hpring Valley to a poinleoutbeaat of and beyond tbe Jackson mint, where it comes to a nar row point or wedge between the Prospect Mountain quartette and Pogontp lime stone. On tbe northern end of Ruby Hill tbe limestone is :el off by a fault fissure, called the "Roby Hill fault." The width of the limestone sone of Ruby Hill, at tbe enrfaoe, is from 800 to 2.000 feet; over lying It on tbe north are tbs Heoret Can yon shale and tbj Hamburg limestone of Adams Hill. Overlying tbe quartzite, npen tbe east side of Prospeot Mountain, Is a belt of Hamburg limestone, whioh is doubtless connected at some depth beneath tbe turfeoe with that of Adams Hill. In tervening those two bodies at tbe surface, over a spaoe o' about 3,000 feet, is tbe Pogonlp limestone, wbiob runs in a con tinuous belt tbtougb tbs eastern portion of tbe distrlot from Diamond Valley, north of tbe Bullwhacker mine to Newark Valley on tbe south. Overlying the Ham burg limestone of Prospect Mountain is a band of argilaoeons shale identical in ober aeter with that wblcb overlies tbe north ern part of tbe Ruby Hill lode, but known as tbe Hamburg shale. Nearly all of THE OBE BODIES Of considerable magnitude and economic value that were discovered in Eureka Dis trict up to tbs present time were in tbe Prospeot Mountain and Hamburg lime stone formations, of tbe Cambrian Age, but valuable deposits of ore have been found in the Bullwhacker and Williams burg mines, wbiob are in the Pogonip limestone and quarts porphyry of the Bi lurlan Age. V»ry rioh ore has been found in payiug deposits in the mines of New York Canyon, in Lone Mountain lime ■tone, also of the Silurian Age. The Lone Mountain limoetone ia separated from the Pogonlo limeatone by tba hard quartaite reef of MoOoy'a Ridge. Tbi, quartzite extenda northward to Cariboo Hill and aoutbward to Newark Valley. The ahalea and qnarlzitea are substan tia*1* non-ore-beariog. In aome plaoea the Proapeot Mountain qnartzite in Rnby Hill haa been impregnated with the ore bearing aolutiona. but It baa nowhera been found of any eoonomio value. Rhyolite. • species of tbe porphyry class of rooks! igneous and non-ore bearing, ia fgund lu dykee of various dimensions jn several parti of the district and frequently in dl reot touch with tbe ore bearing strata Tbe aolfalario ao lion consequent npon ite eruption had probably muob to do with the ascending ore-bearing eolations, if not with the aotnal deposition of the ore. Trending southerly from tba end of the quartzite, on the east side of Prospect Mountain, Ja a belt of Saoret Canyon shale, which aepalates the Hamburg limeatone from tbe Proapeot Mountain limestone throughout the southerir section of the distrlot. The Proapeot Mouotaln aod Hamburg limestones are i dentical in obar in but that the latter ia more eilloioue than tba former, aod it weather* rougher and breaks with a sharper frao tura. Returning to tbe ... - „ lit BY BILI. r\\ JLT. it la Brit obaeived norlhw trd. at tba anr Bwr Urn Albion tnln », taking ao al most uniform southeasterly course, with an average dip, underground, of about To degrees to the northeast. It pastes near tbo Richmond office and is plainly visible near tbe mouth of a tunnel that was for merly run to conneot with tbe Bell shaft; thcnoe northeast of tbe Eureka and K K shafts to a point between the Phenis and Jackson mines, where It bends around and takes a southerly course through tbe Hamburg belt of limeetone, westward of the Kemp A Keen, Patroon and Dunder berg mines, and through the Unole Ham and Hamburg mines further to tbe south ward. It faults all formations, bnt is it self nowhere faulted or dislocated so far as can be determined. It has been traced upon tbe surface and is identified under ground by its fillings of rhyolite, ore, ledge material and composite of rhyolite and clay, the latter having been produced by attrition where the walls are olose to gether or nearly so. It has a most import ant bearing on the present etructure of Ruby Hill and the country to the south ward. as also on the relation of tbe ore bodies to eaoh other. Thronghout its entire course it is found to be the key to the structural problem of the Roby Hill and Prospect Mountain mineralized zones. The country southwest, oo the footwall side of tbe fault, has been raised several hundred feet relatively to the banging wall. It is probable that there was up heaval and subsidence, but that the latter exceeded tbe former. Taken in connection with all of tbe mines to tbe southeast, it is found to be a fault plane along which tbe whole southwestern country has been raised from 500 to 2,000 feet. There can be no question that the key to the problem of deep mining in Ruby Hill and Pros pect Mountain will eventually be found in the Ruby Hill fault. The limeetone of Ruby Hill is divided into two sections, which we will designate tbe "front" and "back" limestone. Tbe latter forms a wedge which, taken through tbe Eureka Con. mine, extends from the surface downward to near tbe 13lb level cod lies between the quartzite, tbe lace ul wbiob has a mean dip of about 40 degrees, and tbe fault Assure, wbiob dips at an an gle of about 70 degrees. This, wbicb we shall call tbe npper wedge, lies on tbe southwest or footwall side of tbe Assure and has been raised in this locality about 1,400 feel relatively above the lower wedge and narrows to a thin edge at its lower extremity. It is remarkable for its crushed and broken condition. It was io this wedge that all of tbe tremendous ore bod ies wbicb made ltuby Hill famous in tbe early days of the district were mined. The exploration of tbe front limestone, wbicli overlies tbe fault to tbe southwest, bas not keen sufficient to determine whether either large deposits or any ore at all may be found in it. From tbe narrow part of the upper wedge, downward, as seen upon tbe 13th and 14th levels, as well as upon (be 1,200-foot crossut from tbe Locan shaft, below tbe 14lh level of the Eureka Coo. mine, the face of tbe quartz ite forma tbe footwall of the fault, tbe lat ter maintaining its dip at an angle of 70 degrees, tbs same as It does above. Below tbe 13th level, with its thineet edge upper most and its form Inverted. a« compared with the npper wedge, but situated upon tbe northeast or banging wall side of tbe fault Is a LOW KB WEDOE or LIMESTONE Identical In character with ibe upper wedge. Tbit is crushed and shattered in precisely tbs some manner, and, subse quent to tbe upheaval and subsidence along tbe taolt line, wee doubtless an on divided part of Ibe block of limestone wbicb forms the upper wedge. The future of Eureka Distriot will de pend largely on deep level mining; not that tbe levels near tbe eurlaoe are ex hausted of ore, for on tbe contrary, there are hundreds of tbs smaller mines and prospect* of the district capable 01 pro ducing the preoioua metalatbat are seldom or never talked about; but Ibere la no question of doubt among the experienced miners who bav* worked oo the deepest levels ot Ruby Hill that there are bodies of ore to be found in tbe lower wedge of limestone at valuable aa tbose wbich were excavated in the big chambers of the upper wedge. Tbe sxolorallon of tbe lower wedge would require the expenditure ot large sums of money, no doubt-perhaps hundreds of thousands, possibly million* of dollars; but when it ia remembered that the Eu reka Con. and Richmond mines bare alone paid over ten million dollara in dividends and made a number of people wealthy, and when it la further born* in mind that the ore ia known to enter tbe lower wedge of limestone and to go down below any depth yet attained In Ruby Hill, it is not unreasonable to believe that deeper ex ploration in the lower wedge would pay. Tbe only reason given to the public by the Eureka Consolidated management for not sicking tbe Looan shaft deeper and erossoutting to the lode below the Locan 1300 foot level, was that the maobinery upon the Looan shaft was inadequate for the dual requirement* of draining the mine of water and raising the material broken underground to tbe surface; they were uu willing to continue draining the hill of water unleas one or more of the companies that were operating In Ruby Hill would divide tbe burden of expense with them. It is a settled fact that the maobinery wa* defective for the general requirementa of the mine, but the volume of water to be contended witb and all of the material that oould have been brokeu in the mine could have been raised to the surface with ma chinery that should not have ooat over one-fifth of the sums that were paid for the oumbereome plant which now stands idle at tbe Looan shaft. It it probable that THE TBIE WATEH LEVEL Of the Ruby Hill lode. if there if snob a thing, has not yet been encountered Tine ie a moot question The principal flow of water that was enoountered in the 1200 foot croaaout from the Looan shaft came from the quartzite, wbioh was uselessly penetrated, but if proper measures were taken, that flow oould be easily stopped. The balanoe of the water came from the shale in the main hanging wall of the lode, as well as from seepage from the surface, but was immaterial. The limestone itself is comparatively dry, which fact has been amply proved upon the lowest workings of the Richmond mine, wbioh are deeper than the bottom of the Looan shaft. Before the quartzite was broken into in the Looan 1200-foot orossout, when the water oame in in its greatest volume, fully seven feet In width of ledge material was enoountered between a wall of intercalated shale and quartzite, In direot oonneotion with the fault, and about three feet of that was payable ora. The miners who drove thi crosscut through that material hate nne< quivoeallv declared that the ora 'a there, and more than that, they believe that it goei down deeper and in paying quan tities. Mr. Clarence King, the eminent geolo glit of national fame, who formerly bad charge of tbe Richmond mine, and is qnite familiar with the pbjeioal condition of Ruby Hill and tbe manner of tbe deposi tion of tbe ore bodies, bsa expressed tbe opinion in tbe most indobilable manner, that exploration should be carried to a fur ther depth of 1,000 feet or thereabout, and that there ia no geological reason why ore •honld not be foond in as valuable quan tities at it was found above, if tbe work were done. He thought that gold-bearing arsenical pyrites and silver-bearing galena would be found in more compaot form, and hence richer than tbe oxidized nree, whteb were more or lees mixed with limestone, tbit the lode had yielded above It is calculated that tbe subterranean disturbance which created the Rnby Hill fault raised the footwall side of the Pros pect Mountain limestone, through tbe Eu reka Con. mine, abont 1400 feet,* PKOSPXCT MOCWTAIK Rises to an elevation considerably bigbsr than that of Ruby Hill, showing that tbe erosion of tbe latter locality mnat have greatly exceeded that of tbe former. Pros peot Peak, tbe bigbeet point on Prospeot Monnlain, has an elevation of 9.G04 (eel, and tbe highest point on Rnby Hillreacbes an altitude of only 7,291 feet abovs rea level. It is here seen that tbe difference in tbe elevation of tbe two points ia 2,313 feet. The ontcroppinga of the ore bodies of Ruby Hill were larger than those of Proa peot Mountain, bnt tbe difference may be accounted for in tbe excessive erosion of Rnby Hill. In tbe mam body of Prospect Monnlain tbe ora bodies generally augment in eize with the increase of depth. The deepest workings in Prospect Mountain, following the ore downward from the anr face, are fonnd in the Diamond and Excel sior mines, abont 1,600 feet below tbe top of tbe mum orecbnteand a little over ouu ieet below the main tunnel level. Tbe aurlaoe of Ruby Hill ii relatively fiat when com pared with that of Prospect Mountain, wbicb is donbtlesi due to tbe greater ero sion of tbe former, sod it is therefore fair to believe that tbe cntcroppiDgs of tbe Rob? Hill ore bodies were, at one time, no greater than those of the Diamond and Exoelaior mines at the present; and if the theory generally accepted here—that the ore aolntioDs were forced np by infiltra tion and dynamic pressure from below—is oorrect, that relating to tbe difference in size of tbe outcroppings of Ruby Hill aDd Prospect Mountain Is not without a reas onable basis. The question of deeper exploration in Knby Hill and Prospect Mountain has re cently been discussed here, aud there has been no reason adduced to show why the work should oot be remunerative. It has been demonstrated that tbe ore bodies still continue going down Id tbe caves, below tbe deepest workings of tbe Diamond and Exoelaior mines. It is also shown that tbe ore continues dipping below tbe deepest excavation in the Enreka Con. mine ; and there is reasonable probability that ore bodies may be found below tbe deepest workings of either of the Ruby Hill mines as valuable as those wbicb were excavated above. It Is manifest that tbe limestone bodies of Roby Hill aDd Prospect Moon tain, at present separated by tbe granite and Prospect Mountain qnartzite, were origiually one and tbe same; that the dis connection oocnrred through excessive ero sion shove the Prospect Mountain qnartz ite. and that the difference in the extent of ibe respective outcroppings upon Ruby Hill and Prospect MouDtain is due to the erosion. Undoubtedly the erosion occur red subsequent to tbe upheaval and rela tive oreatlou of tbe Ruby Hill fault. Tbers can be bat little question as to tbe import ant bearing of tbe faul t on tbe present struc ture of Ruby Hill and Prospect Mountain and tbe relation of the ore bodies to eaoh other. Tbs former hat been manifested through diligent investigation instigated under national authority, and it it quite probable that the asoendlng ore bearing solutions passed up through tbe great fis sure and. by means of infiltration and per colation through the teams in the oountry rock, were oonveyed to and deposited in tbe chambers and other cavities in the limerock,wblch were created by the pre viously occurring subterraneous disturb ances. The elevation of the main tunnel level at tbe Diamond mine is 7,600 feet above tea level, while that of tbe highest point on Ruby Hill is only 7,300 feelor thereabout, and "the elevation of the Ruby Hill orop. pings Is hardly more than 100 feet above that of the deepest workings of tbe Dia mond and Exoeltior mines. In the latter the ore produoed is relatively improving in quantity and quality with greater depth, and the yield of gold In proportion to the silver is increasing. The Diamond and Eioelaior mines are making a better show ing than did the Riohmond or Eureka Con. at the relative points of elevation, and their present oondltlon Is an augury that they will become at famous and equal ly as productive and lucrative at were tbe Eureka Con. and Riobmond mines in tbeir palmiest days, but deep level mining is needed at much in tbe one as in tbe others.
