States Mining company.
It is estimated that ore thieves get
away with from $50,000 to $75,000 worth
of high-grade ore and nuggets every
month in the Cripple Creek district.
With the development work executed

In the Distaff mine, at Chloride, last
week, while working in a raise from a
tunnel, a three-foot body of ore was en
countered which it is said will run 1,000
ounces silver to the ton.
John J. Shimmel, of Kansas City, has
been here this week to put into position
the new gasoline hoist recently purchas
ed by the Superior mining company from
the Webber gasoline engine company.
The El Paso Times says that the El
Paso smelter is receiving heavy ship
ments of copper ore from several Arizo
na mining districts. The past month
five more cars of ore were received than
during the previous month.
It is reported that there has been dis
covered a sufficient quantity of ore at a
depth of 2,500 feet in the Congress mine
within the last few weeks to increase the
valuation of that mine $1,000,000 over its
reported valuation of three months ago.
The large copper mines of Arizona are
nearly all associated with limestone;
those of Butte, Montana, are in granite;
those of Lake Superior in conglomerate
sandstone and dibase; those of Duck
town, Tenn., in mica schist; those of
Iron Mountain, Shasta county, Cal., for
the most part in quartz and porphyry ;
those of Idaho mostly in diorite.
The stock of the Superior mine is
booming. It will be remembered that
the stock was originally issued at sixteen
cents a share. Last week a block of
1700 shares sold in El Paso for one dol
lar a share, the buyer offering the same
price for an unlimited amount, but could
buy no more at that price. Since then
offers of a dollar and a half a share have
been made for the stock, with no takers.
