Globe, Ariz., Dec IL An enormous
amount of work Is betas prosecuted
by the Inspiration Consolidated Copper
company, covering: an area miles in
length from the sinking: of the supply
shaft west of Miami to the railroad ex
Ground Is already being: broken for
the mill site, a steam shovel is grad
ing: its own road through the steep
canyons as it climbs to the point where
it will work on the mill site, laborers
are strung along the mountain sides
building a IC-foot wide wagon and au
tomobile road, buildings are being con
structed, and the whole vast area of
the Inspiration's surface swarms with..
One Drift Orer Mile Lone
The company's mining operations are
also a matter af vast distances and im
mense energies. Not only do the many
drifts and crosscuts reach a total dis
tance of many miles, but one drift
alone will be over a mile in length
when finished. The long haulage level
that will connect 'the Live Oak portion
of the property with the two main
Inspiration hoisting plants will be
6000 feet long. In November 4000 feet
of development work was accomplished
and during the previous month 4665
feet of ground was cut.
The supply shaft, west of the town
of Miami is already 270 feet deep. It
is an inclined shaft of 30 decrees In
clination through which all miners and
supplies will enter- The shaft was
raised from a depth of 265 feet from
a tunnel through which the miners will
reach the shaft. The latter -was ex
tended to the surface to avoid the ex
pensive work of cutting a station at
the 265 foot depth large enough to
contain a hoisting engine.
Virtually no sinking is being done
at Live Oak No. . 1, but a station is
being cut there and a shaft started to
ward Live Oak No. 2. The distance
between these shafts is 2200 feet.
Drifting between the Joe and Scorp
ion shafts is progressing at a good rate
and the contractors expect to finish the
drift by the middle of January.
Tunnel Work Finished.
Work on the Sulphide tunnel has
been finished, the tunnel now being
standardized, or enlarged to 7 1-2 feet
in the clear. Many of the sharp curves
in the tunnel also have been minimized
by the recent work, its .present trend
being as near normal as could be ef
fected without driving a new tunnel,
an expense considered unnecessary by
the present management of the prop
erty. The "casing off" of the curves
makes it possible to instal electric
haulage in the Sulphide tunnel. At
'he mouth of the tunnel a concrete
out through the sulphide adit.
All the ore will be lifted through the
twin main shafts on the Inspiration
portion of the property.
A considerable portion of the Live
Oak ore body, because of its dip, lies
at a greater depth thin the Inspiration
ore body and workings. How this ore
will be extracted has not yet been de
tap the bottom of the Live Oak ore
with a drift, or an independent shaft
will be sunk at the Live Oak and the
ore lifted to the present haulage level.
An Iirrcrted Peak Body.
On a line between the Joe Bush and
Scorpion shafts, directly beneath a
mountain whose summit marks the
highest point on the Inspiration prop
erty, is an inverted peak of ore be
neath the haulage level of the mine.
It contains about 500,000 tons of ore,
an insufficient quantity to justify
deeper workings. In other words the
half million tons would not pay for
the expense of driving the lower drift
at the extra depth.
While offices have been erected at
the mill site, ground actually broken
for the foundation of the concentrator,
and much of the equipment to be used
in the work of excavation already
plaoed upon the ground, chief en

At the Miami company's plant the
same regular routine of development
and production obtains. All the
recently constructed buildings are now
in use, the machinery in the saw mill
and other buildings being Installed, and
the engineering offices and mine of
fices being occupied.
Two churn drills are still operating
on the surface and two diamond drills
are being used in boring a perpendicu
lar prospect fcole from the 570 foot
level. The management is not pre
pared to impart any information con
cerning the result of the drilling until
further progress has been made. Dur
ing the month of October 95,439 tons
of ore were mined at the Miami and
2,789,000 pounds of copper produced.
Gibson Maintains Output.
At the Gibson, the company and leas
ers are keeping up to their former
amount of extraction. The . company
will produce six carle ads of 16 percent
ore this month and thr leasers probably
will ship a cantr.ti. Because there is
no crosscut from the main shaft to
the Pasquale ledge between the fourth
and fifth levels, it has been necessary
to connect the two latter levels by a
raise which will be converted Into a
two-compartment chute upon Its com
pletion. The ore mined between the
fourth and fifth levels will be dropped
down one compartment and the waste
through the other to the sixth level
and hoisted from there through the

Savage Mine To Ship.
The Sa-age property, situated nine
miles west of Miami, between the
Union and Five Points groups, is be
ing worked by Doc Prescott, Peter
Carr and William Thompson, who will
soon make a shipment of 14 percent
ore to the Old Dominion smelter at
Globe. The Savage property Is of a
schistose formation similar to that
of the Gibson mine and its ore also
resembles that of the latter, being
mostly chalcopyrite with a small per
centage of chalcocite. Because of the
poor condition of the Five Points road
near the property the ore will be
packed by burro train two miles to an
other point on the road, whence it will
be shipped to Globe.
At the South Live Oak, hole No. 5
has been started and is now about
150 feet in depth. This hole is 250
feet west of hole No. 3 In which 65
feet of 2 percent ore was reported. As
the formation of hole No. 5 is Iden
tical with that of hole No. 3 It is
thought that the continuation of the
ore body may be" proved by the re
sult of the last hole's drilling.

Chihuahua, Mexico. Dec. 11. Reports
relative to an increase 4n mining taxos
for this city, having their foundation,
no doubt, from tbe large increase in
customs duties lately enacted as a

contemplates making no radical change
in we present system ot mine tax

seriously by the national congress

ficient in view of the fact that the
government receives a large income
from this source. The government has
every desire to promote and encour
age the mining industry, which Is yet
in its infancy, and the mining men
may rest assured that anything that
is done In this respect will be for their
benefit, notwithstanding all reports to

Through the port of Agua Prieta
2,37S,100 pesos worth of mineral was
exported, and from other portions of
the state a like gain is to be seen.
Cananea shipped heavily as the Can

produced 8,300,000 pounds of copper
during the month. Small properties in
the south are also shipping the limit
of their capacity. The total for 1912
through the port of Agua Prieta will
amount to almost 20,000,000 pesos,
according to present indications.

There has been a crosscut also run In
the ore and it has already cut 24 feet
of the ore, with the grade continuing
between 6 and 7 percent.
The ore body at Henrietta has been
found to extend from the 300 to the
400 level, and the values average be
tween 6 and 7 percent copper.
A conveyor belt is being installed at
the Duluth mine, which will carry the'
ores from shaft No. 3 to the bins at
the main shaft. This will obviate the
necessity of much surface tramming.
The conveyor will be 580 feet long.
