Chicago people have the Cunningham Pacs copper mines, in Yuma county, about sixty miles west of Congret-s, un der bond and have twenty-four men en gaged in sinking and general develop ment and are taking out large quantities :f high-grade shipping ore. This is said to be the largest body of ore yet found in Arizona, the ledge averaging 80 feet in width and cropping out for a distance of two miles. Copper Mountain district, near Adon de, Yuma county, promises to substanti ate all that has been claimed for it for the past three years. Speaking of Chas. Baker's claims, in that district, the Yu ma Sun says a depth of 30 feet has been reached on one of them and the result is very encouraging. The ledge, which was three feet on the surface, is gradu ally widening and becoming more solid. The ore runs high in gold and copper. There are about thirty tons of ore on the dump, and arrangements are being per fected to commence chipping to El Paso immediately. If the smelter returns are as good as anticipated the force of men will b-j increased and development will be commenced on a number of other claims in the district, among which are some very promising proppects.
