' .: Work.
The Junior class In saining from
the University of Utah arrived in
camp Tuesday evening In charge of
Dr. F. J. Pack, Deseret Professor of
Geology, to begin a six week's re
cannoisance of this mineral district
during which 'the members of the
class will have opportunity to get
something more than a theoretical
knowledge of mining.
-.. Ik Is. the purposaot the' students
to examine into the geology of the
camp by beginning at Pioehe proper
and extending their investigation as
far i out as Stampede Gap; over an
area covered heretofore by Dr. Pack
and forming the basis for a most
interesting report on Pioche geology
with the latter as the author. The
report has received much favorable
comment from mining engineers ac
quainted with conditions here. '
Altogether there are about thirty
students from the Utah school and
they are to be reinforced by at least
four more in a few days. The boys
have established camp near the Green
wood shaft , of the -Ohio-Kentucky
mine where they are comfortably lo
cated for the period during which
they are to conduct their summer
"From a geological standpoint," said
Dr. Pack yesterday, "the rocks of
the Pioche mountains are of the
Cambrian age and represent one of
the best sections in the west for
study. The shales near the Half Moon
property have afforded an excel
lant series of fossils. These fossils
represent the earliest ' of the,, earth's
animal forms.' Other features of., in
terest are the - Yuba and other ig
neous dikes; a large fault passing
northwest hear the Ohio-Kentucky
"The University of Utah students
will make a detailed examination cf
the more imoprtant ere bodieaiefcnec
ially those associated with the dikes.
An examination will be made cf the
the ' iron and garnetiferous ere bod
ies at Stampede Pass. Condor canyon
will afford interesting problems f jr
a day' work. Bullion! ille will' also
be visited.
"The surveying work will be done
both underground and on the surface;
but the" -exact areas have not as yet ;
been determined: this matter being
left to jProf. F. C. French, "who will j
anive in Pioche to take charge of thei
' class about two weeks hence." i
Upon the arival of Prof. French
Dr. Pack expects to leave f-r t"

Mr. Gaskill has wrought some wonder

that between 250,000 and 300,000 tons
of ore have been developed since I

of the Prince Consolidated mine were
in camp Thursday and returned tc '
Salt Lake yesterday morning exceed
ingly gratified with the changes that
have been wrouht in the property
by Superintendent Lloyd since their--last
yisit here. . . . ,
Mr. Godbe informed the -Recorif
that officials of the Salt Lake Route
had advised the Prince Con. company
that a corps of surveyors had been
ordered to Pioche to locate a route
for the proposed extension of the
t a ilroad around to the Prince mine-,
and that the party would make their
headquarters in the vicinity of the'
Piince mine during their stay in the
district. It is understood that two surveys
will be made. - One around by way of '
Ely Valley, Pioche Meta's and Demi
john mines; the other from a point
near Panaca and thence up the val
ley to the Prince and other prop
trties. Mr. Godbe is of the opinion,
however, that the engineering depart
ment will fteay select the first name
.route. .... -, ..:: ,
Regarding the program for the fu

it Is the Intention to prepare for the
output of a large tonnage; but to ac
