IN OWHYEE COUNTY The work of re-opening the Cali fornia goes merrily on. The old mine is doing i herself proud and surprising even the old timers who well know War Eagle's wealth. At a depth of 100 feet, more ore is act ually blocked out than the par value of the total capital stock of the CDmpany. The shaft is being rapidly unwatered and retimbered and a drift is to be immediately started in which more miners will be put on at once. The grade of the ore is surprisingly good and several who have visited the mine report that the showing of rich ore is splendid. The vein is so soft as to require very little labor for its removal, while at the same time, the granite walls are sound and hard requiring very little timber. With cost of power a mere trifle, the running expense of the mine is comparatively small. It is re ported that during the coming sea son the company will install a mill perfectly suited to the ore. The location will be probably on the company's mill site just above town on Jordan creek. After years of comparative quiet most encouraging reports are com ing from War Eagle. Several of the old prospects have developed pay shoots and are now taking out ore for the spring milling and the old er mines are developing grand for a mill run. By spring it is almost certain every mill in the district will be running to its full capacity. The coming season promises a permanent resumption of War Eagle's heretofore large production dlfd and silver. p of The wild cat business has all gone by the board and today there is not in the district any other than strictly legitimate enterprises. General Manager H. L. Wood burn of the War Eagle Consoli dated Mining company has re turned from Philadelphia, and Superintendent F. E. Wilson is al ready on the ground with a force of men to resume work on Sinker tunnel, as announced in Nugget of recent issue. The présent force is engaged in cleaning out and re timbering the tunnel. A carload of ore from the Mon arch mine at Atlanta to be treated as an experiment by a new process, was taken to Denver a few weeks ago. The method proposed is that of chlorination by a process worked out by a man named Greenwalt. The ore is first roasted and then passed into a tank in which the chlorination takes place. After it has been leached the precious metUs are precipitated partly by electrical action and partly by zinc. This process calls for only seven pounds of salt to the ton ot ore. Reports have been received that the experiment is proving satisfac tory. We understand that a number of parties were out New Year's morn ing for the purpose of relocating contestible mining properties in this vicinity, but have not as yet learned what was done, no claims having been recorded so for. How ever, as the locators have 60 days in which to record claims, there may have been "something doing."
