This strike is of great importance as it confirms the expectation of tho man - agement and strongly indicates that an extensive body of high grade ore will be developed on the 600-foot level. This level is in fact but 578 feet from the collar of the shaft. It will be. ro membered that the Eureka shaft cut the hanging wall of the vein at a; depth of 595 feet and. was in the. ledge for about fifty or sixty feet; also that oro was struck at 700 feet whilcthe Btation was being cutvand that when the vein,jvas broken into, a flood of water was re leased that-uroVned the pumps and filled the" shaft to' about forty" feet bo, low the -fiOOtfoot levell A"t tho east end of" tho Black Hawk claim good oro was developed on threo levels and what is known as the inter mediate level, just above watcr,: was opened for 50 feet toward tho west, the j drift being in ore the entiro distance and tho ore atvtho bottom of this drift' being by '.far tho TjqsL At' tho end of this drift the Vein, was crosscutted and found to bo forty feet wide; also, a winzo' a'unk fifty-Bix below the diift is in ore all tho way .down, which goes 10 to 12 per cent copper.
