Highest of all in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S. Gov't Report
Quart * Found year Florence.
C. B. Wood was out from Flor
ence last Saturday and informed
us that the shaft on his Poortuan
mine was down to a depth of forty
feet, with the bottom in 8400 ore,
and the ledge widening out as they
sink on it. They are now running
a tunnel to connect with the shaft
and tap the ledge at a depth of (iO
feet below the surface, and expect
to have it completed in about 30
days. The property is bonded to
J. F. Cameron, of Wardner, and is
situated about three miles south
west of Florence. The character of
the ore is identically the same as
that of the old Harpster lode eight
miles south of Florence, on the
Wire Bridge trail, that is, anti
monial silver, and black sulphurcts,
with good gold values throughout.
Mr. Wood also informs us of the
recent discovery of a very large
and strong vein of gold ami silver
hearing ore on the head of Little
Slate creek, four miles above the
old Van Buren ranch. At the dis
covery the vein was seven feet
wide, and it was standing up out
of the ground like a stone wall.
It has been traced westerly for a
distance of seven miles into Joliu
Day mountain. It is a contact
vein lying, between walls of granite
ami slate, and its course is east
and west, and in place it widens
out to 20 feet. Assay returns from
the discovery give the ore at that
point a value of 835 per ton in gold,
and 200 ozs in silver. If there is
a chute of any extent on the vein
of this quality of ore it is without
doubt the biggest thing ever struck
in the Salmon river country, the
Florence placers not excepted.
In all probability this ledge
marks the western boundary of
the Florence mineral belt. It may
be the mother lode from whence
the gold of the Florence placers
was derived. At any rate it indi
cates the possibilities of fortune
which haunt the footsteps of the
hardy prospector in the mountains
of Idaho county.
