VOLUME XLI; NUMBER 41. ESTABLISHED SEP'T 17th 1870. . PIOCHE, NEVADA, djRDAY, JUNE 24, 1911. pioqs RECORD Bristol-Day Merger Is Hailed Hi Satisfaction The news given out last week to the effect that the negotiations which had been peudlng lor sometime for & consolidation of the Nevada Utah'. Day mine and the properties of the Bristol Con. had been brough. to a successful conclusion, was ha-i ed In Pioche with supreme satlsia. tiou. That it was tue biggest min ing deal affecting Nevada mining ter ritory conauininated lu many years, there Is no doubt, and that Bristo. Day Consolidated will become one of the largest producers of ore In Ne vada is albo equal.y certain. Stockholders of Nevada Utah, at. we.l as those of the Bristol Con., have reason to lock upon the situa tion brought about by the consolida tion with satisfaction; at the same time retting in the confidence that the amalgamation will, in a lit tle time, wibance the Value of their holdings manyfold. But best of all, they can look toward the future with reasonable assurance that the ' con solidated mint will not oniy be come extensive producers of gold, silver, lead copper ores, But will be come as well one of the leading divi dend payers of the west , SURVEYS ARB BEGUN Following receipt cf the news of the consolidation. Chic Engineer H. C, Parker received Instructions from the New York office of the company to start worn on the pipe line to Fairview Springs, about seven miles distant from the Day shaft house, and through whLh water will be sat plied ftr al domestic and mining pro poses. Ihe preliminary surveys have revealed that the water can : b brought from lairvlew, by gravltj thus removing any necessity cf pump ing plants, the company's tntJeeti are now locating the permanent line and with this muili done, the digging of the trenche and laying of the pipe will be a matter of but a short time. , A NEW TUNNEL SITE Mr. Parker is unable to say at this writing Just how Boon work will be ein on the avenue which is to be run through the mountain to connect these great mines; but that he is going to lose no time, is evidenced by the fact the company's surveyors have practically determined on the permanent tunnel site, wnicn win make It possible without great ex pense to the company, to connect with the 900 level workings of the mine which is to be the main ave nue to the Bristol side. The advan tage to be gained in this operation lies in the fact that all hoisting from this level will be obviated In tho iuture, (bus reducing the cost of op ration to the minimum. WELL INTO MOUNTAIN It muet be remembered that the of lively mineralized ground Left re it reaches the Hillside This ir. aa cer- talu as the sun shines; for the Day fissure can be traced across the nountaln to the properties on the Bristol side, demonstrating beyond any question of doubt that both the Day and Bristol mines are on ! tho same vein system. WHAT NATURE INTENDED j That nature never Intended , that these mlnea should be operated eep orately seems apparent. The Bristol urouertlea are high up on the mount aiu side, difficult of access; but con taining a world cf ore. Notwithstand ing the obstacles of altitudes, ab sence of water and the like, more ihan $1,000,000 has been taken out of the May Day mine, to say nothing about other properties in the imme diate lclulty. Aside from this, the dumps and stopes on the underground contain thousands cf tons of ore, not of commercial value then, but upon the completion of the Bristol- Day tunnel will Immediately become a source of large revenue to the Bris tol-Day company. The May Day shaft is only about EGO ft deep on an in -line of 45 degrees. The proposed tun nel will cut nndtr. -tm:ni"o this ftnaft 500 or 690 feet In plac es, the tunnel will be close to 2000 feet below the surface; a depth of 1200 feet will be gained in the Hill side. It is difficult to comprehend the magnitude of the Bristol-Day, or meas ure its poseibilities; but that it is one of the coming big mines cf this region is a foregone conclusion. TONNAGE FROM THE DAY In the meantime, ore extraction go eson unabated from the Day and Chief Engineer Parker informs the Record that,' the output will soon be materially Increased. At this time or for shipment fs being obtained from the big north stope on the 700 ft. level, which is showing better val ues than ever before particularly In copper. Ore is also being taken from the 325 level; while the dump below what is known as the open cut is boing cleaned up and Ehipped to the smelter. This ere is brought down to the bins at the rallrcad by means of an aerial tramway.
