Mining Men Declare Vein the Great est Ever Found in the Cripple Creek District. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Cripple Creek, Colo. —A gold discov ery said to surpass anything ever known in Colorado has been made within the last few days in the Vindi cator mine at Cripple Creek. The far famed “jewelry box” opened in the Cresson mine a year ago is said to pale into insignificance beside this new find. A completely new vein sys tem has been tapped that is in virgin territory, and that may extend clear to the surface. Following the strike in the six teenth level, developments to open the new vein were started in the fourteenth with a view to determining its possible extent. In the meantime the drift at the original discovery depth was being prosecuted, with the result that recently while the new work at the fourteenth was bearing fruit the drift at the lower level was proving a new shoot a length of 400 feet and a width of from thirty to for ty feet. Practically the entire vein filling is high grade ore. Cripple Creek scarcely needed this fresh stimulus to deep mining. The story of the Vindicator is being re flected in kind by all the new work being prospected in its great mines at depth. Everywhere the story is one of new ore bodies, increased values, reserves that guarantee heavy pro duction for many years above the level of the Roosevelt drainage tun nel. The “jewelry shop” of the Cresson was extraordinary in the con centration of values In its ores, but the Vindicator strike, in quantity and total worth, bids fair to far exceed it both in ultimate extraction and im portance to the mining industry of the camp.
