There it sinks bsnealh the surface debris, but again appears shove tbs mountain quarternary Just southwest of and Dear the Prospect Mountain Tun nel, aud still further south it underlies the Prospect Mouutaiu limestone east of and near tbe Dog Out mine. On tbe east dank of Prospeot Mountain the quartlite dips to the east. Tbe granite, which owes its exposure on the northerly slope of Pros pool Mountain to erosion, apparently dips under the quartzite of Ituhy Hill. Pre vious to the erosion, the great belt of lime stone of Prospect Mountain and that which ooostitntet the Ituby Hill lode were presumably one and tbe same and formed a continuous body. The face of tbe quartzite dips nuder tbe limestone of tbe Ruby Hill lode at an average angle of about 40 degrees to the northeast. The exposure of this body of limeetone on the surface exleode over 4.000 linear feet from near tbe Albion shaft on the nortbweet. where it is covered by tbe debris of Spring Valley to a point southeast of and beyond the Jackson mine, where it oomes to a nar row point or wedge between tbe Proapeol Mountain quantile and Pogonlp lime ftooe. On tbe northern end of Rnby Hill the llmeatone la cut off by a fault fissure a.II.J Ik.

Overlying the Ham burg llmeatone of Proapect Mountain ia a band of argilaoeoua shale Identioal In obar aoler with that whlob nverliei tbe north ern part of tbe Buby Hill lode, but known U the Hamburg abate. Nearly ell of THE ORE BODIES Of oonaidereble magnitude and economic value that were dlacovarrd in Enreka Dts trlot up to the preaent time were in the Proapect Mountain and Hamburg llme atone formations, of tbe Cambrian Age, bat valuable depoalla of ore have been found in the Bollwbacker end Wlllisma burg mines, whlob are in the Pogonlp llmeatone and quartz porphyry of the Si lurian Age. Very riob ore baa been found v P*T'n,f a'Po*l'" in the rainea of New York Canyon, in Lone Muuntuln lime atone.al.o_of »»>« Silurian Age. The I,one Mountaiu limestone la separated from the Pogonlp llmeatone by the hard quartzite reef of MoCny’e Ridge This quartzite extend* northward to Cariboo Hill and •onthward to Newark Valley. The abates and quartzites ere aubatan tlelly uon-oro-bearing. In ,0me places •be Proapect Mountain quartzite in Ruby Hill haa been impregnated with tbe ore bearing solution., but it has nowhere been found of any economic value.

It paeaea near tbe Itiobmond office and is plainly visible near tbe month of a tunnel that was for merly run to connect with tbe Bell abaft; thenoe northeast of the Eureka and K K shafts to a point between tbe Phenix and Jackson miuee, where it bends around and takes a southerly course through the Hamburg belt of limestone, westward of the Keinp <k Keen, Patroon and Dunder berg mines, and through the Unele Ham and Harabnrg mines further to tbe aontb ward. It faults all formations, but ia it self nowhere faulted or dlslooatcd so far as can be determined. It baa 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 produoed by attrition where tbe walla are dose to gether or nearly ao. It baa a moat import ant bearing on the present structure of Huby If ill and the country to tbe south ward, as also on tbe relation of tbe ore bodies to each other. Throughout its entire course it is found to be tbe key to the structural problem of the Baby Hill and Prospect Mountain mineralized zones. The conutry southwest, on tbe footwall side of the fault, has been raised several hundred feet relatively to tbe hanging wall. It ia probabla that there was up heaval and subsidence, bat that the latter exceeded tbe former. Taken in connection with all of the mines to the southeast, it ia found to be a fault plane along which tbe whole southwestern country has been raised front 500 to 2,000 feet. There can be no question that tbe key to the problem of deep mining in Baby Hill and Pros pect Mountain will eventually be found in tbe Buby Hill fault. The limestone of liuby Hill n divided into two sections, which we will designate the ''front” and “back” limestone. The latter forma a wedge which, taken through the Eureka Con. mine, extends from the surface downward to near the 13th level end Ilea between the quartzite, the face of which has a mean dip of about 40 degreea, and the fault fissure, which dipa at an an gle of about TO degreos. This, which we • ball call the upper wedge, lies on the southwest or footwall side of the fissure aud 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 ita oruehed and broken condition. It was in this wedge that all of the tremendous ore bod ies which made Ituby Hill famous in the early days of the district were mined. The exploration of the front limeatone, which overlies the fault to the southwest, has not been sufficient to determine whether either large deposits or any ore at all may be found in it. From the narrow part of the upper wedge, downward, as seen upon the 13th and 14tb levels, aa well I aa npon the 1,200 foot crosaut from the Locan shaft, below tbs 14tb level of the Eureka Con. mine, the faoe of the quartz ite forma the footwall of the fault, the lat-l ter maintaining ita dip at an angle of 701 degreea, the same aa it does above. Below the 13tb level, with ita thineet edge upper most aud Its form inverted, aa compared with the upper wedge, but situated upon the northeast or banging wall aide of the fault is a LOW ZB WIDOK or LIBZ8T0SZ Identical In obaracter with the upper wedge. Thia is orusbed and shattered in precisely the some manner, and, subse quent to the upheaval and subaidenoe along the fault line, waa doubtless an un divided part of lbs block of limestone whloh forma the upper wadge. The future of Eureka Diatrlol will de pend largely oo deep level mining; not that the levels near the surfaoe are ex hausted of ore, for on the contrary, there are hundreds of the smaller mines and prospects of the district capable of pro fJUOIUK me piCWIUU* UiCWIIIUBI ■IWIVIUUU or never talked about; bat tbera i* no question of doubt among tbe experienced inioere who here worked on the deepest levsls of Roby Hill that thera are bodies of ore to be foand in the lower wedge of limestone as valuable as those which ware exoevaied lo tbablg chamber* of tbe 1 upper wedge. The explorslion of tb* lower wedg* wonld require tbe expenditure of large enm* of money, no doubt— perhaps hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of dollars; bat when it is remembered that tbe Eu reka Con. and Richmond mines have alone paid uver tan million dollera to dividends and made a number of people wealthy, and when it Is farther borne in mind that tbe ora is known to anter tba lower wedge of limestone end to go down below any depth yet attained in Roby Hill, it ie not unreasonable to believe that deeper ex ploration in the lower wedge would pay. Tbe only reason given to tbe publlo by the Eureka Consolidated management for not sicking the Locan shaft deeper and crosscutting to the lode below tba Looan 1200 foot level, was that tbe machinery upon the Locan shaft was inedeqnate for tbe dust requirements of draining tbe mine of water and raising tbe material broken underground to tbeeurface; they were nn willing to oonticue draining tbe bill of water unless ons or more of tbe companies that were operating in Ruby Hill wonld divide I he burden of expense with them. It la a settled fact that tbe machinery was defective for the generel requirement* of tbe mine, but the volume of weler to be contended with end ell of the material that oonld have been broken in the mine oould have been raised to the surface with ma chinery that should not have cost over one-flfth of the sums that were paid for the cumbersome plant which now stands idle at the Looan theft. It is probable that THE TM’* WATEB L*V*L Of the Ruby Hill lode, if there is suoh a thing, has not yet been encountered. This is a moot question. The principal flow of water that was encountered in tbe 1200 foot crosscut from the Locen shaft came L I -L n nal ,,CS 1 IT lroiu tun ljuai - penetrated, but If proper meaeurea were taken, that flow oould ba easily atopped. The balanoe nf the water came from tbe •hale In the main banging wall of the lode, &a well »« from seepage from the surfaoe, hot was immaterial. The limestone itself le comparatively dry, whioh fact has been amplv proved npon the lowest working* of the Ktcbmond mine, wbiob are deeper than the bottom of the Locan shaft. Before the quartzite waa broken into in the Looan 1100-foot eroaaont, when the water came in in its greatest volome, folly seven feet in width of ledge material waaeooountered between a wall of intercalated abate and quartzite, In dlreot eonneotion with the fanlt. and abonl threa feat of that waa payabla ora. Th* mlnari wbo drove * a orououl thron*h that malarial hat* owe quivocally declaied that the ore '• there, and more than that, they believe that it goes down deeper and in paying quan titles. Mr. Clarenoe King, the eminent geolo gist of national fame, who formerly bad charge of the Richmond mine, and is quite familiar with the physioal condition of Iinby Hill and the manner of the deposi tion of the ore bodies, has expressed the opinion in the most indubitable manner, that exploration should be carried to a fur ther depth of 1,000 feet or thereabout, and that there is no geological reason why ore should not be found in as valuable quan tities as it was found above, if the work wero done. He thought that gold-bearing arsenical pyrites and silver-bearing galena would be found in more oompaot form, and benoe richer than the oxidized ores, which were more or less mixed with limestone, that the lode had yielded above It is calculated that the subterranean disturbance which created the Ruby Hill fault raised the footwall side of the Pros peot Mountain limestone, through the Eu reka Con. mine, about 1400 feel. FKOaPIOT MOUNTAIN Rises to an elevation considerably higher than that of Ruby Hill, showing that the erosion of the latter locality must have greatly exceeded that of the former. Pros pect Peak, the highest point on Prospect Mountain, has an elevation of 9,004 feel, and the highest point on Ruby Hill reaches an altitude of only 7,291 feet above sea level. It is here seen that the difference in the elevation of the two points is 2,313 I..4 The outcropping) of tbe ore bodies of Ruby Hill were larger then those of Pros peot Moaotaia, bat the difference may be aocoonted for in the excessive erosion of Rnby Iiill. In the main body of Prospeet Moantain tbe ore bodiea generally augment in aize with tbe inorease of depth. The deepest workings in Prospect Mountain, following the ore downward from the sur face, are fouod in the Diamond and Excel sior mines, about 1,600 feet below the top of tbe main oreohateand a little over BOO feet below tbe main tannel level. Tbe surfaoe of lluby Hill ia relatively Hat when com pared with that of Prospect Mountain, which is donbtleii due to the greater ero sion of the former, and it is therefore fair to believe that the outcroppings of tbe Itubv Hill ore bodies were, at one time, no greater than those of the Diamond and Exoelstor mines at the present; and if the theory generally accepted here - that the ora solutions were forced up by infiltra tion and dynamio pressure from below—it correct. th»t relating to the difference in size of the outcroppings of Rnby Iiill and Prospect Moantain is not without a reas onable basis. The question of deeper exploration in Rnby lfiil aud Prospect Mountain has re cently been discussed here, and there has been no reason adduced to show why tbe work should not be remunerative. It has been domonstrated that the ore bodies still oontlnae going down in the caves, below the deepest workings of tbe Diamond and Exoelsior mines. It is also shown that the ore coutinaea dipping below the deepest excavation in the Eureka Cou. miue ; and there it reasonable probability that ore bodies may be found below tbe deepest workiegs of either of tbe Raby Hill mines at valuable os those which were excavated above. It It manifest that tbe limestone bodies of Ruby Hill and Prospect Moun tain. at present separated by the granite snd Prospect Mountain quartzite, were originally one and the tame ; that the dls connection ocourred through excessive ero sion shove tbe Prospect Moantain quartz ite. and that the difference in the extent of the respective outcroppings upon Raby Hill and Prospect Moantain is due to the erosion. Undoubtedly tbe erosion occur red subsequent to tbe upheaval and rela oan be bat little qaeelion ai to the import >d( bearing of tbefanlt on tbe presentetruo toreof Ruby Hill and Proepect MonntaiD and the relation of the ore bod lee to eaeb other. Tbe former hae been mantfeeted through diligent investigation mitigated under national authority, and it ie quite probable that the ascending ore bearing solutions patted up through the great fis sure end, by means of Infiltration and per colation through the teams In the oountry rock, were oonreyed to and deposited in the chambers and other cavities in the limerock which were created by the pre viously occurring subterraneout disturb ances. Tbe elevation of tbe main tunnel level at tho Diamond mine it 7,600 feet above tea level, while that of the highest point on Iinbv Hill it only 7.800 feetor thereabout, tnd tbe elevation of the Ruby Hill crop pingt it hardly more than 100 feet above that of the dtepeit working! of tbe Dia mond and Exoeltior mines. In the latter tbe ore prodnoed it relatively improving in quantity and quality with greater depth, aod the yield of gold in proportion to the silver is increasing. The Diamond and Exoelaior mines are making a better show ing than did the Riohmond or Eureke Con. at the relative pointa of elevation, and their present condition It tn angary that they will beoome as famous and equal ly at productive and Incratire at were the Eureke Cod, aod Richmond mines in their palmiest daye, but deep level mining It needed ae much in the one at in theothere. | *The distinguishing uamet of tbe forma tions of Eureka Distrlot are local and were first adopted by Mr. Arnold Hague, the geologist in the field of thie division of tbe U. 8.
