At No. G shaft better than the EVefgg. grade of rock is being de reJoped. iTodUCtlen for March should show a Sgetagi g enase over similar periodn n lull. The company has little In the way of extra costs to look forward to this year and as a profit of $2,00 was made on mining operations in 1911 with copper around 1 2 Vfe. substantial earning, should result from production this year. Victoria look, very attractive around present prices, although it will probably not he a very active Issue. AHMEEK Directors of Ahmeek met this week and announced S Quarterly dividend of $1 per share, an Increase of $1 over the amount declared throe months ago. Ik-cause of in creased earnings it was generally expected that Ahmeek would pay $4 this quartec It is estimated that the com pany is now earning at the rate of better than SJ per share, and vvill be able to equip Nos. 3 and 4 shaft, out of surplus earnings even at the present rate of .lividends. The sto. h is shortly to be listed on the imston stock e . bailee. GIROUX Renewed lnter-st in (iiroux I. due largely to the fact that the company will begin production within the next thirty days. It is proposed to ship from H00 to 1200 tons of ore daily, and the management expecta to be aide to pro Juco copper at not more than ten cents g pound. i . elopments have been very satisfactory of late. For the past three years tiroux has been devoting all of its ef forts to opening up large bodies or ore, so that when pro duction is started it can be maintained regularly. It is qtttte likely that shipments g UM grade ore will be made to the Stcptoe concentrator, while the high grade ore will go direct to the smelter. MOHAWK Mohawk In 1 : 1 1 earned SSSJDSI more than dividend re quirements. Reduction in the cost of production was ijui'e noticeable. In lEtl, Mohawk produced Its t opper at a co.t e" 10.11 cents per pound against la.io;:, c uts in lslO. This copper was sold at an average price of 12.6a cent, per pound. The average recovery of copper per ton of rock stamped was 1.'.07 pound, compared with 14 22 pound, a vear ago. The increase in the price t" copper to It. present quotation or 1.V625 tents on Mohawk's production for litll would represent an Increase in earnings of 13.6" per share, so that it Is reasonable to expect that when dir. -tors meet for dividend action again, there will be an increase in the disbursement. In commenting on the property. Agent Smith give, the follow ing Information : The general condition f new openings made during the year was good. The best ground opened was tributary to No. 4 shaft, with very good results north on lag Itth and ICth levels and south on the I'.tb. No. I come, next in or der with excellent showing at all levels south from the 9th I,, the i :tb Inclusive, and the north drifts somewhat BtSSw the average of the .'iil'.r.. mine. No. fi follow ed closely alter No. : and beat resulLs -were secured south at the 4th to 7th levels, inclusive. The north drifts and the sth south have shown a fair amount of eop pei. pro'. Ing up some v ery good sloping ground. Open ings at No. l were a little under the average of Noa, 5 and 6. Drifts have been opened north at all level, from the lP.th to 20th inclusive, and the ground exposed has been above the average throughout the mine. Drifts both north ..nd south from No. I ss also those south of No. 1 have trade the j ooi c t sho.ving. being i ..nsidcruble below the average Kverythlng at the mill i- In .atlsfactory running order and we are stamping to full capacity. We suffered quite EerloBSly from loss of time in January end February due to the low stage or water In Lake Superior. Muring th past summer the Intake chsnnel has been deepens! s- hat at present there are irom eight to ten feet of water Its entire length and we anticipate no further trouble DfOM this source. Keeping in mind the Improvement In conditions under ground during the year past, we feel Justified In a conclu sion that our operations for the present year will give quite as satisfactory result, ss wore secured In 1911-" LAKE Milling operations lone rcsull.-d In a very celb nt re covery of rock which to dale has gCCg shlpMd by I-ake la the It.ltlc ggjR The recovery has varied from SJ.SI pounds to .hove 3 pounds of mineral p.-r ton of rock .temped. These figure, do not Include the mass and lar- rel copper which was not sl ipped to the mill but will go dir. t M the smelter. PfgCtteglly all the rock so far milled has come from the .tockpile. and it is believed that when shipments .re msde to the mill dirtvt from underground the recovery will be even better. The Usltlc milt drones mineral st shout 5. so thst with mass and barTel OEfVEff Lake should be gating better than twenty pounds of re ilned coppr per ton of rock .tamped. .in-i tl. ,-ompanv should be aid. to show m! . - Ntantlul earnings. Shipments ar now imlng lor ward In g limited way. the average being between :io and 300 Um. pel day. These shipments will be increased and about June l.t, Lake should be .hipping at least g tons of rock dally to the stamp mill. Not only because of the favorable result of milling op erations do we regard Lake as an Issu.- ..tiering great speculative possibilities but consideration should be given to the fad that the bulk of the stock is .,w owned by New Kngland investor, at an gverggg price ,t fully twenty point, above going quotations, and hat they have tlM greatest cunttderue m the future of tbl- property and Will readily add to their holding.. NORTH BUTTE Director, of North Butte met this wi-ei. anj increased the quarterly dP. Idcnd from thirty cents e Sgftf cents a .hare. Tin. will he payable April otb to stockholders of record April 1st. The inciease was gcm-ialij expected by llu.se who are familial with the verj fuv .rable develop ments at North Hutte during the past few months. We barn from a source unquestioned that North Hutta net earnings during the ;st quarter were about twice the dividend EtgUirement. of forty cents a share. With topper selling at fifteen cents a pound, earnings will be materially increased, and t efor.- the year closes a fur ther Increase in the dividend rate can be expc t.-l TgS physical condition, of the property have .how n Im provement in recent months. The Snowball vein on the several level, where it is receiving attention is opening up an excellent grade of ore. Recent development on the North Crocus vein have resulted In the disclosure uf a g. od gra b- of me and the vein of considerable width. In the north crosscut on the 2,400 level, a new vein has just been ut. While narrow at the point of intersection. It r.liowed high copper asays und it promises to become wider a. depth la attained. Thl. vein showed no commercial values In the levels above. No drifting ha yet been dons upon It. The crosscuts on the 2.100 and 2.S00 level, havs not yet reached the Fdlth May and Jessie veins, and while this hits been rather disappointing, the management la carrying on operations at these points a. rapidly as un derground conditions will permit. CALUMET .1 ARIZONA. We regard the annual report of the Calumet & Arizona and Superior A Pittsburg companies Issued thia week as the most satisfactory yet made to the .hareholders. Cun si deration mu.t be given to the fact that It covered a period quite trying In mining operations because of the low prtcs St which copper was sold, und also a period during which the two companies were consolidated necessitating the outlay of a large sum of money in adjustment. It i. evident that the consolidation of Calumet A Ari zona and Superior A Pittsburg has worked toward the re duction of production costs, for the merged companies In lt ll produced copper at an average price of 7.34 cent, fgff the year, production fell off about 5,000,000 pounds. On the increased capitalization of Calumet & Arizona from 200,000 to approximately 62S.OO0 shares, earnings were 14.02. or two cents more than the rate at which dividends were paid.
