The town is building very fast, and every one is busy. Five properties have made good already to a depth of 150 feet, large and they are in schist." It may be mentioned here that "schists are altered volcanics of varied composi tions."

TO WORK THE SNAKE RIVER PLACERS SOON Messers Barnhart and Elder, of Visilia, /week, and who called on the Mining Re I view while here, are installing a hydraulic plant on a large bar of auriferous gravel j on the Snake river, in Idaho, about two miles above Twin Falls. This bar embraces about ten acres of California, who were in Salt Lake last . a fine gravel ranging from ten to twenty five feet in depth, exhaustixe tests of which show that the values range from $1 to $5 to the cubic yard, while the average " Jf The'hailing of this bar the gravel j e to be run over grizzlies of twenty mesh. ■ ! The product is then run over a specially constructed silver-plated copper amalga mating plate, using an entirely method of agitation in the recovery of the If the process proves as suc cessful as anticipated, there is every reason to believe that the problem of the recovery of the fine gold from 8nake new flne KoJd ,_. , „ , * river bars will be fully ai d most satis , , tactonly solved. A 600-foot hydraulic, six and eight inch pipeline to furnish the water neces sary for sluicing purposes is now being manufactured in Salt Lake by the West ern Heating & Sheet Metal Works, which it is tic will also furnish the over-shot wheel and sluice boxes. The pipeline will derive its water supply from a cliff 300 feet above the bar, and the power and water thus afforded will enable the owners to work from 150 to 200 cubic yards daily of this rich deposit. Messers Barnhart and Elder have made exhastive tests with this new process, on a small scale, and it has been most suc cessful in the recovery of fine gold. It is believed that it will be equally successful when applied to extensiv operation, and it will be given a thorough work-out this fall.—Mining Review. Notice.
