COPPER REVIEW FOR PAST YEAR ARIZONA AGAIN IN THE LEAD AS COPPER PRODUCING STATE . MICHIGAN IN THIRD PLACE. For 1910 Arizona again takes the lead among the copper-producing states with an output slightly above the production of 1909, which was 291,110,298 pounds, according" to the annual report of the United States Bi ological survey. The Blsbee district was the largest producer, with an out put of approximately 145.000,000 pounds, as compared with about 130, 000,000 pounds for 1909. Developments during the year in the old mines of the district were en couraging, especially In the deeper workings. Steps were taken late in the year to consolidate the Calumet and Arizona and Superior and Pitts burg companies. The output of the Morencl-Metcalf district for 1910 will show little change from the production of 72.000.OO0 lbs. in 1909. The shannon railroad, con necting this company's mines at Met calf with Its mill and smelter at Clif ton, was completed and put in opera tion early In the year. The Globe district made an output of about 27,000,000 pounds as com pared with about 33.000.000 pounds for 1909. I In the Miami section of this district there was great activity throughout the year in development and construc tion. The Miami Copper company practically completed its mill and will begin production early In 1911. The concentrates will be smelted at Can anea, Mexico. Considerable ore was added to the reserves in blocking out the ore for extracting, though little effort was made during the year to Increase the develied ore. The Inspiration Copper company wns actively engaged In development during the year and It Is reported as hitvlng on October 20. developed ore amounting to 12,396.000 tons, and 5,604,000 tons of partially develops ore averaging 2 per cent copper. An experimental mill was operated by the comany during the later part of the year to determine the best method of treating the ores The Live Oak. Black Warrior, nnd other mines of the district have been active in developing- ore during the rwtr J At Jerome tho United Verde mlne'consln 16,000 nnd Nebraska 14,500. waa operated throughout the year and the output will probably show but lit tle variation from the 30,700,000 pounds produced In 1S09. . ' In the. Mineral Creek district devel opment and construction were active. The Ray Consolidated and Gila Coni sollduted companies were merged dur ing tho year. This company Is re ported late In the year, to have more than 75,000,000 tons, of ore developed. The first units of the concentrating olant at Hayden will be ready for op eration early in 1911, and work on the smelt r will be completed considerably later than the mill. - - . The Ray Central mine Is reported to have 10,000,000 tons of ore developed. A small experimental mill wus In oiy eratlort of this "property for a part of the year but construction of a perma nent mill has not been started. Montana. The copper production of Montana will probably not exceed 285,000,000 pounds for" 1910, 1 as compared with 314.65S.291 pounds for 1909. The state will therefore rank second to (Arizona as a copper producer. ' The most important event in the Butte district during the year was the consolidation of the Amalgamated companies as the Anaconda Copper company and the purchase by this company of W. W Clark's copper in terests, including the Butte Reduction works which were closed. This con solidation was desirable to avoid the numerous controversies that arose concerning the ownership of ore Ind ies, nnd also to reduce the cost of pro duction by bringing the companies under one management. Michigan. Michigan ranking third as a copper producing state, made an output of re fined copper of about 220,000,000 pounds In 1910, as compared with 227. 003,929 pounds for 1909. The most important development of the year were those carried on at the lake and neigh borjng properties. Though these developments by no means realize the expectations held at the beginning of the 5'ear, they still Indicate the possibility that Important deposits may be found in this section of the district. Utah. Utah, ranking fourth among the coper-producing states, made a marked Increase in production over that for 1909, which was 101.241,114 pounds. The production was mainly from the Bingham district. The most Important event occurring In this district during the year . was the consolidation of. th Boston Consolidated and Utah Cop per properties. During the year the mills of the Utah Copper company at Garfield have been In process of re modeling and their capacities have been greatly Increased. The Copperton plant of this company was closed and dismantled during the year. The Yampa smelter was closed for the hitter part of the year and the mines previously furnishing ore to this smelter shipped their output to the Garfield smelter. The Tootle plant of the International Smelting and Refin ing company was completed and In op eration the latter part of the year. This smelter was operated mainly on ore from the Utah Consolidated Cop per Company's mines and concen trates from the Cactus mine, Beaver County. The Cactus mine, In the Frisco dis trict, resumed operations October 1, after being idle since March, 1903. SMALLER OR LARGER HOUSE7 Washington, D. C, Jan. 4.
