Mining Deal, Which Has
Been Pending for Some
Time, Is Consumated.
Bis bee, Aria. Starch 5. By far the
most important deal made In the War
ren district in a long- time is the tak
ing over, by the Calumet St Arizona,
of the Saginaw Mining company. The
actual absorption of the company
-marks the successful culmination of
negotiations that have been going on
fur a long time. The rumor that the
aeal had bees made has been in cir
culation here for some time, though
no confirmation was given to it by
either officers of the Saginaw or the
Calumet & Arizona until the official
announcement of the plan for the ab
sorption of the property was made.
In absorbing the Saginaw, the Cal
umet & Arizona will give one share
of its stock, now quoted around 60,
for 6 1-4 shares of Saginaw, now
luoted around 9 In addition to this
Xftil aTiar tf Hnlniniif & Irlcnna will
be distributed nro rata for stock held I
in the Saginaw treasury. The final spiration
ratification of the plan will be made
bv the Saginaw stock holders on
March 10, at a meeting to be held in
this city. There are many large hold
ers of Saginaw in the Warren district
and here the plan is very favorably
regarded The Saginaw controls some
rich claims and it is stated that its
absorption will soon return it to the
producing column. With the Saginaw
merger disposed of it Is the belief that
the Warren consolidation -with the Cal
umet & Arizona, -which has been re
ported here recently, will be the next
step, and will be made -without delay.

The final work preparatory to start
ing active development work on the
resumption of work on the property
and survey work on an extensive scale,
to determine the extent and general
bearing of all workings on the prop
erty, has already begun. The Higgins
property has now been idle for several
years although previeuB to this time
much work had been done on it and
the workings had demonstrated much
of value. Unded the terms of the
lease the lesees have access to all old
records of the claim with the privi
lege to conduct -whatever line of in1
vestigation they deem advisable. Along
the Copper Queen line there are show
ings warranting the belief that the
Higgins has equally as rich srround as
some of the very rich adjacent terri
tory from which the Copper Queen has
mined some of its best paying ore. Mr.
Leston has announced that steps will
soon be taken by himself and his as
sociate to incorporate the mine and
that work will be carried on on a
large scale. Mr. Leston is a former
Copper from the Bisbee mines has
been sold for more than a month

tion of the district is being kept up
te the standard of the last few months,
-which -was high.

A. O. Koppes. manaeer of Del Pilar
mine, near Santa Cruz, reports that
there has been an ore body developed
on the 400 foot level which is 32 feet
in length as far as known at the pres
ent time. Raises have been made in
the ore to a height of 12 feet and are
still In the ore.
High grade copper ore was recently
encountered in a crosscut on the 350
foot level of the Creston de Cobre
mine, located about 3 miles west cf
Hermosillo. The erosssut has pene
trated 30 feet of the ore and the face
is still all in ore at last reports. It
is believed that the find on the 250 foot
level Is the same ore body developed
to some extent on the 250 foot. The
shaft is to be sunk to the 400 foot
level and a crosscut run towards the
ore body.
The Penn-Sonora Mining company,
whose property is located near Pian
chas Plata, about 12 miles west of En

soon to treat its ores. The company
expects to spend $75,000 in the near
future on its property. Work on the
plant will begin at once.
To Build New Smelter.
The Tecolote Copper company Is ar
ranging for the erection of a new
smelter on Its property, located about
30 miles west of Carbo. The U. S.
corporation is the West Coast Smelt
ing & Refining company. Already the
.plans have been drawn and prepara
tions made on the ground for, the erec
tion or tae plant, wmch is to cost
3260.600. Rieketts & Banks of New
York, are the consulting engineers.
Activity In Transvaal.
The Transvaal Mining company,
whose properties are located near Cum
pas, Sonora. has been keeping steadily
at work recently, resuming shipments
to the Copper Queen smelter at Doug
las. The Cobre Rico mine has about 2 -500,600
tons of ore averaging two per
cent copped, one-half ounce silver, and
trace of gold. At this mine over l -460
feet of work has been done, con
siderable diamond drilling being ac
complished a few years ago.
There has been 10,600 feet of dia
mond drilling on the Transvaal mine,
besides 2660 feet of tunnels and
shafts. This work has resulted In
an ore body being developed which is
estimated to contain between 3,000,000
and 4,000,660 tons of concentrating
The Ultima Chanza mine Is by far the
richest, as the ore averages 10 per
cent copper, one-half ounce silver, and
and the ore body is estimated at 50 -660
It is belleyved that the company will
erect a new smelter in the near future,
plans for same having been had. tor
some time, but it is probable that the
company will await the extension of
the railroad from Nacozarl, its pre
en t shipping point, to Cumpas.
