Miami Plant Expected to Be
Beady for Work Eirst
Globe, Ariz., Dec 13. Completion of
surface construction at the Miami plant
is rapidly nearing and the date for the
first pound of ore to be run through
the mill is set at January 1. It was
originally planned to put the mill and
mine in such shape by that date that
there could be a daily production of
1500 tons, but it seems improbable at
the present time that the mill will .be in
shape in the next three weeks to handle
anything like that amoutt of ore. It is
'almost certain, however, that by the
first of the new year the concentrator
will have one unit In commission and
as there are three units per 1000 tons
this will mean a daily production of
approximately 333 tons.
Practically the only remaining piece
of installation or construction -at the
mill proper to complete one or two
units is the erection of a number of
settling tanks for the slimes.
The power plant is practically com
plete, as is the hoisting plant. All that
remains to be done is the cleaning up
of the engines preparatory to turning
oh the steam. The power plant as it
stands today contains two generator
sets, a 4500 cubic foot air compressor,
which is to furnish air for tlyj hoisting
machinery, and a condensing pump,
which receives the exhaust from the
generators and compressor. There will
probably be another compressor in
stalled when the mine begins active
extraction of ore.
The town of Miami, located at the
foot of a big hill upon which the con
centrator is placed, has long been is
olatedi in a 'degree, from the mine,
due to the fact that there was no di
rect road. In the next month or so,
however, a "direct road to the mine and
concentrator "will be built by the Mi
ami Townsite crowd.
The sentiment at the Inspiration
camp seems to be at the present time
one of conservatism and in lieu of the
former very extensive underground de
velopment more attention is being paid
to the testing plant. The various air
ferent systems of concentration are pe-
ins: tried out and numerous screening
tests are being made. If the Miami
concentrator is a success, as it will In
all probability be, the Inspiration peo
ple will have the benefit of a demon
stration as to the complete efflciency
of that mode of treatment.
The underground development has
amounted to approximately 1500 feet in
the past month. The three shafts, Col
orado, Scorpion and Joe Bush, have all
been connected and represent an enor
mous amount of ore bearing territory.
Most of, the work so far done has been
near the Joe Bush shaft.
Three churn drills are still at work
two shifts a day and while two of them
are busy blocking out ore, the third is
doing work of a more prospecting na
ture It is the intention of the manage
ment to sink the Colorado "shaft to a
further depth of 250 feet and at the j
same time to sink the Joe Bush shaft?
100 feet deeper. The work is being car
ried on by a force of practically 150
men and the number of linear feet of
underground drifting, raising and sink-
1 ing amounts to over 30,000.

SEND TEXAS IRON
A bulletin just issued by Dr. William
B. Phillips, head of the bureau of eco
nomic geology of the state of Texas,
gives a brief but comprehensive sum
mary of the present situation with, re
gard to the extensive deposits of iron
ore in the eastern part of Texas. On
June 15, 1910, the first coastwise ship
ment of east Texas iron ore left Texas
City for Philadelphia. It consisted of
568 tons and came from Cass county,
on the line of the Jefferson & North
The shipment was intended as a test
lot to be tried in a Pennsylvania blast
furnace, and was not intended as the
immediate precursor of other and larger
shipments. The results of the test were
so favorable that contracts Involving
1000 tons a day can now be placed
in eastern Pennsylvania.
The Texas Iron and Coal company,
with a capital stock of $5,000,000. has
oeen organized by New York, Philadel
phia and Texas people, and a permit to
transact business in Texas will shortly
be applied for. This company has ac
