(IFriUre far <A« " Smlintt" bn St. II. Jaitpk ) Mineral Hill, which ocoupiea the north ern slope of Prospect Mountain, ie com posed of dolomitto limestone and granite. • The Prospect Mountain quartzite, which there dipping to the northeast, forma the footwai! of the Ruby Htll lode, oserliea the granite and benda around Prospect Mountain to tbe eaal and weet in Ibe form of a horseshoe, trending on the eaat aide to a point northeast of and near the Eu reka Tnnnol and on tbe weal aiJe to an other point extended westward from the Orant mine. There it sinks beneath tbe surface debris, bat again appears above the mountain quarternary just southwest of and near tbe Prospect Mountain Tun ■el, and still farther soatb 11 underlies the Prospect Mountain limestone east of aud near tha Dug Out mine. On the eaat flank of Prospeol Mountain the quartaite dips to the eatl. The granite, whioh owes Us exposore on tbe northerly slope of Proa peat Moantein to erosion, apparently dips under the qnarizite of Ruby Hill. Pre vious to the erosion, the great belt of lime (tons of Proapect Mountain and that whioh constitntos the Rnby Hill lode were presumably one and tbe same and formed a continuous body. The face of tbe qnartzlte dips under tbe limestone of the Ruby Hill lode at an average angle ol about 40 degrees to tbe northeast. Tbe exposure of this body of limeelone on tbe surface extends over 4.000 linear feet from near tba Albion shaft on the northwest, where it is covered by tbe debrie of Spring Valley to a point southeast of and beyond Ilia Jackson mine, where it comes to a oar row point or wedge between the Prospeol Mountain qnartxlte and Pogonip lime alone. On the northern end of Roby Hill tbe limeelone is cut off by a fault flssnre, called the "Rnby Hill fault." Tbe width of tbe limestone zone of Ruby mil, at tbe ■arfaoe, is from 800 to 2.000 feet; over lying it on tbe north are tbe Beoret Can yon shale and tbe Hamburg limestone of Adams Hill. Overlying the quartzite, upon the eaat side of Prospect Mountain, Is a bait of Hambnrg limestone, which is doubtless connected at some depth beneath tha surface with that of Adams Hill. In tervening those two bodies at tbe snrfaoe, over a space of about 3,000 feet, is tbe Pogonip limastone, which ruus in a con tinuous bsll through tbe eastern portion of tbe dlitrlot, from Diamond Valley, north of tbe Botlwhaoker mine to Newark Valley on tbe lootb. Overlying tbe Ham burg limestone of Prospect Mountain is a band of argilaoeous shale Identical in char acter with that whioh overlies tbe north ern part of tha Rnby Hill lode, but known as the Hambnrg shale. Nearly all of inn uni. nuiutn Ot considerable magnitude and economic value that were discovered iu Eureka Dta Iriot up to tbe present time were in tbe Prospeot Mountain and Hamburg lime •tone formations, of tbe Cambrian Age, but valuable deposits of ore have been found iu tbe BoJlwbacker and Williams burg mines, which are in the Pogonip limestone and quartz porphyry of the Si lurian Age. Very n0h ore j,M be,.n found v P*rlD|11 “'XMlK I® *be mines of New lork Canyon, in Lone Mountain lime • tone, also of the Silurian Age. Tbe Lone Mountain limeatoue is separated from tbe Pogonip limestone by the bard quartzite reef of MoCoy e Ridge.

Returning to the t. . - . , >CBV HILL FAULT. « flr,« observed uorUiward, at the »ur laoa aaar tbe Albloa Mine, Uklag a. .'. most uniform southeasterly course, will an average dip, underground, of about 7i degrees to tbe northeast. It passes nesi the Richmond office and ia plainly visibli near tbe mouth of a tunnel that was for nierly ran to connect with tbe Bell abaft thenoe northeast of tbe Eareka ant K K shafts to a point batween the Pbeoit end Jackson miues, where It bende arottoc and takes a southerly coarse through tbi Hamburg belt of limestone, westward o the Kemp .V Keen, Patronn and Dander berg mines, and through tbe Uncle Sin and Hamburg mines further to tbe aouth ward. It faults all formations, but is it self nowhere faulted or dislocated ao far ai can be determined. It baa been tracer upon tbe aurface and ie identified under, ground by its fillings of rhyolite, ore ledge material and composite of rbyolili and clay, the latter having been produced by attrition where tbe walla are oloee to gather or nearly so. It has a moat import ant bearing on tbe present structure o ltuby Hill and tbe country to tbe south ward, as also on tbe relation of tbi ore bodiea to each other. Tbrougbont iti entire course it Is fonnd to be tbe key tc tbe structural problem of the Ruby Hill aud Prospect Mountain mineralized zones The country southwest, ou tbe footwall side of tbe fault, haa been raised severs! hundred feet relatively to the bauging wall. It is probable that there was up heaval uod subsidence, but that the lattei exceeded tbe former. Taken in connection with all of ibe mines to tbe aontbeast, it it fonnd to be a fault plane along which tbe whole southwestern oonntry baa been raised from DUO to 2,000 feet. There can be no question that tbe key to tbe problem of deep miuiog in Ruby Hill and Pros pect Mountain will eventually be found in tbe Ruby Hill fault, Tbe limestoue of Ruby Hill it divided into two sections, which we will designate Ibe "front" and "back" limestone. Tbe latter forms a wedge which, taken through tbe Eureka Con. mine, extends from tbe surface downward to uear tbe lath level end lies between the ausrtzite. tbe face ol winch baa a mean dip of about 40 degreea, and the fault Assure, wbicb dipa at an an gle of abuul 70 degreea. Tbia, wbicb we • ball call the upper wedge, liea on tbe aouthweat or footwall aide of tbe fissure and baa been raiaed in tbia locality about 1,400 feel reletively above the lower wedge aud narrow* to a thin edge at Ita lower extremity. It ia remarkable for ita crushed aud broken condition. It waa in tbia wedge that all of tbe tremendoua ore bod ira which made Kuby Hill famoua in tbe •arly daya of tbe dialriol were mined. Tbe exploration of tbe front limeatone, which overlie* the fault to the aouthweat, baa not keen sufficient to determine whether either large depoaite or any ore at all may be fonnd in it. From the narrow part of tbe npper wedge, downward, aa aeen upon tbe 13th and 14tb levela. aa well aa upon tbe 1.300 foot croaaut from tbe Eocan abaft, below tbe 14tb level of tbe Eureka Con. mine, tbe faoe of tbe quartz ite forma tbe footwall of tbe fault, tbe lat ter maintaining ita dip at an angle of 70 degree*, tbe aame aa it doca above. Below tbe IStb level, with ita thineat edge upper moat and Ita form inverted, ae compared with the npper wedge, fcnt aitualed npon tbe northern! or banging wall aide of tbe fault ia a town WKtHig or MMUT0XS Identical in character with the upper wedge. Tbia ia cruabed and abattered in precisely tbe tome manner, and, eubxe queut to tbe npbearal and subsidence along the ianlt line, waa donbtleae an nn divided part of tbo block of limeatone wbicb forme Ibe npper wedge. Tbo future of Eureka Diatrict will de peud largely on deep level mining; uot that Ibe levela near ibe aurlaoe are ex hausted of ore, for on tbe contrary, there ere hundred* of tbe smaller minea and proapect* of tbe diatrict capable of pro ducing tbe precious metal* that areeeldom or naver talked about; but there i* no qneetion of doubt among tbe experienced miner* who bare worked on Ibe deepest levela of Itnby Hill that there are bodies of ore to be found in the lower wedge of llme»toue as valuable aa tboae wbioh were excavated in tbe big chambers of tbe upper wedge. Tbe exploration of tbe lower wedge wonld require the expenditure of large euma of money, no donbt—perhaps hundreds of tbonaauda, poutbly tnillione of dollare; bat when it t* remembered that tbe Eu reka Cun. aud Richmond mine* have alone paid over tan million dollara in dividends and made a number of people wealthy, and when it ii further borna in mind that tbe ore ia known to enter tbe lower wedge of limestone and to go dowu below any depth yet attained in Ruby Hill, it it not unri aaoaable to believe that deeper ex ploration in the lower wedge would pay. The only reason given to the public t>y the Eureka Consolidated management for not sicking the Locan abaft deeper and cros^outting to the lode below the Locan 1200 foot level, was that the machinery upon the Locan shaft was inadequate for the dual requirements ot draining tbe mine of water and raising the material broken underground to the surface; they were un willing to ooutinue draining the bill of water unless one or more of ihe companies tbatweie operating iu ltuby Hill would divide the burdeu of eipense with them, ft is a settled fact that the maobioery was defective for the geners) requirements of tbe rniue, hut tbe volume of wster to be oonteuded with aod all of the material that oould have baeu broken in lha mine could have been raised to tbe surface with ma ohinery that should not have oust over one fifth of the sums that were paid for the cumbersome plant which now atanda Idle at tbe Looan shaft. It is probable that THK IIU'K WATIH LEVEL Of the ltuby Hill lode, if there Is suoh a thing, has not yet been encountered. This is a moot question. The principal flow of water that waa enoouutered in the 1200 foot crosscut from the Locan shaft came from tbe quartzite, which was uselessly penetrated, bul If proper measures were taken, that flow oould be easily stopped. Tbs balance of tbe wster came from the abate iu tbe main hanging wall of the lode, as well as from seepage from the surfaoe, but was immaterial. The limestone itself is comparatively dry, whioh fact has teen amply proved upon the lowest workings of the Bicbmond mine, which are deeper than tbe bottom of the Locan shaft. Before the quartzite was broken into in the I.oean 1200-foot croiaout, when the water came in in ita greatest volume, fully seven feet tn width of ledge material was encountered between a wall of intercalated abate and quartzite, In dlreot oonneotion with the fault, and about three feet of that wai payable ora. The miners who drova • i crosscut through that material hen u«* i quivocallv declared that the ore '( there, and more than that, they believe that it goee down deeper and in paying quan tities. Mr. Clarence King, the eminent geolo gist of national fame, who formerly had charge of tbe Riobmond mine, and is quite familiar with tbe pbysioal condition of Ruby Hill and the manner of the deposi tion of tbe ore bodiee, bae expressed tbe opinion in tbe most indubitable manner, that exploration should be oarried to a fur ther depth of 1,000 feet or thereabout, and that there is no geological reason wby ore should not be found in as valuable quan tities as 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 1 form, and hence richer than the oxidized ores, whiob were more or less mixed with limestone, that tbe lode bad yielded above It is caloulated that tbe subterranean disturbance which created the Roby Hill fanlt raised tbe footwsl! side of tbe Pros pect Mountain limestone, through tbe Eu reka Con. mine, about 1100 feet. moeexcT moemtais Rises to so elevation considerably bigber tban that of Ruby Hill, showing that tbe erosion of tbe letter locality must have greatly exoeeded that of tbe former. Pros pect Peek, tbe highest point on Prospect Mountain, hss an elevation of 9,601 feet, and the bigheat point on Ruby Hill reaches sn altitude of only 7,291 feet above sea level. It it here seen that the difference in tbe elevation of tbe two points is 2,313 feet. Tbe outcropninge of tbe ore bodies of Ruby Hill were larger than those of Pros pect Mountain, but the difference may be eocounied for in tbe excessive erosion of Ituby Hill. In the main body of Prospect Mountain the ore bodies generally augment iu size with tbe inorease of depth. Tbe 'IflOdf-slt Wnrkinxra in PrnanAfit Mountain following tbe ore downward from tbe sor faee, are found in tbe Diamond and Excel aior minea, about 1,600 feet below tbe top ol tbe main ore obute and a little over600 feel below the main tonnel level. Tbe surface >f Rnby Hill la relatively flat when com pared with tbat of Proapect Mountain, wbicb is doobtlest dne to the greater ero sion of tbe former, and it ia therefore fair to believe that tbe outcroppings of tbe Iiubv Hill ore bodiea were, at one time, no greater than those of the Diamond and Kxceiaior mines at tbe present; and if tbe theory generally accepted here—that the ore aolntiona were forced up by infiltra tion and dynamio pressure from below—is oorrect. that relating to the difference in size of the ootoroppiogs of Ruby Hill and Prospect Mountain ia not without a reas onable basis. The question of deeper exploration in Ruby Hill and Proapect Monntain baa re cently been discussed here, and there baa been no reason adduced to show why tbe work should not be remunerative. It has been demonstrated tbat Ibe ore bodies still continue going down in the caves, below the deepest workings of tbe Diamond aod Exoelaior mines. It ia also shown tbat the ore continues dipping below tbe deepest excavation in Ibe Enreka Con. mine ; and there is reasonable probability tbat ore bodies may be found below tbe deepest workiogs of either of tbe Ruby Hill mines as valuable as those which were excavated above. It is msnifest tbat tbe limestone bodies of Ruby Hill and Prospect Moun tain. at preaent separated by tbe granite and Prospect Mountain quartzite, were originally one and tbe same ; tbat the dis connection oocarred through excessive ero sion above tbe Prospect Monntain quartz ite, and that the difference in the extent of tbe respective outcroppings upon Ruby Hill and Prospect Monnlain is due to the ■roeion. Undoubtedly tbe erosion occur red subsequent to the upheaval and rela tive creation of the Rnby Hill fault. There nan be but little questiou as to tbe import ant bearing of tbe fault on the presen t struc ture of Ruby Hill and Prospect Monntain and tbe relation of the ore bodies to eaob other. Tbe former baa been manifested tbrongh diligent investigation instigated under national authority, and It Is quite probable that tbe aaoendtug ore bearing aolntiona passed up tbrongb tbe great As sure and. by means of Infiltration and per elation through the seams In tbe country rook, were conveyed to and depoelted In tbe chambers and other cavities in the limerook which were created by the pre viously occurring enbterraneoas disturb ances. Tbe elevation of tbe main tonnel level at the Dfamoud mine is 7,600 feet above sea level, while tbat of tbe highest point on Ruby Hill is only 7.300 feet or tbsreabonl, sod tbe elevation of tbe Ruby Hill orop piuga is bardiy more than 100 feet above that of the deepest workings of tbe Dia mond and Excelsior miues. In tbe latter the ore prodneed is relatively improving id quantity and quality with greater depth, and tbe yield ol gold in proportion to tbe silver ia increasing. Tbe Diamond and Excelsior mines are mskiug a better show ing than did tbe Richmond or Eureka Cou. at the relative points of elevation, and their present condition Is an angury that they will become as famous and equal ly aa productive and lucrative as wero the Eureka Cou. aDd Richmond mines in their palmiest days, but deep level mining is needed aa mneb in tbe one ae in tbeotbera. | *Tbe distinguishing names of the forma tions of Eureka District are local and were first adopted by Mr. Arnold Hague, the geologist in the field of this division of the 0. s.
