THE COPPER ERA, CLIFTON, ARIZ., MARCH 15, 1900.
6ome Big Strikes. From all over Arizona come reports of big strikes of ore. Mojave county is not behind her sisters in the matter of big strikes. Within ten days the biggest finds of rich ores ever opened in the country have been made. The Occident at White Hills, with six feet of $300 ore; the Luck Boy, at Chloride, with six feet, running from $300 to $500; the San Francisco in Cedar district, with five feet of $100 gold ore; the Butler, in Aubrey district, with six inches of $500 erold ore; the Snowball in San Francisco district, with fourteen inches of $80 gold ore ; the Juno, at Chloride, with eighteen inch es of 800 ounce silver ore; the Queen Bee, at Mineral Park, with very rich gold silver ore; the Tennessee at Chloride, with eleven feet of solid galena ore carrying good values in gold and silver; the Orox Plata, in Todd Basin, with three feet of ore averaging $160 gold and 100 ounces silver. Besides these are,' at Chloride, the Uncle Abe, which has just opened up a big leád-silver streak; the Midnight, with a good showing of gold ore; the Payroll, with a magnifi cient vein bearing gold, silver and lead. No one who knows the county should overlook the fact that our resources in min erals are boundless. Kingman Miner. Copper Market. New York and London reports indicate confidence in the pres ent and future conditions of the copper market. New York ad vices are that the market there is satisfactory to both producer and consumer, with a good deal of export business. An interesting feature noted is the difference in prices on the London and New York markets as compared with those of a year ago. In March of last year the selling price of spot copper in London was 71. lis. 3d., or 2. 8s. 9d. lower than the price at the present time. In New York in March of last year copper was selling at 18 cents a pound, or 2 cents a pound high er than present quotations. So, while consumption of copper has diminished in England, prices have advanced; on the other j hand, with greater consumption j in the United States, copper is j lower. It is a peculiar state of j affairs. L. A. Mining Review, i The Best Pre paration for Chapped Hands, Face, Lips, &c. Use Dunn's Almond Cream Renders the Skin Soft and Smooth. Large 4 oz. Bottles 25c.
