The ore and concentrate shipments
from Black Hawk Inst week footed up
01 cars as against 93 cars for the preced
ing week, making a total for the month
of September of 326 cars.
11. J. Sears & Co., lessees of the Nagle-
Bates property on Bates hill, this city,
are taking out ore from a backstope.
They are also developing the Bates-Bax
ter by sinking the shaft. Four men,-
Charles Truscott, Thomas Rowe, Peter
Lobb and John Jeffries sank the shaft
in IT I ., shifts a distance of 41 feet and
timbered the same, which is 4xß feet in
size, two shifts being employed. This is
a splendid record for the number of
shifts in which the work was completed.
The number of stamps employed in
Gilpin county for the first 2-3 days in
September foots up 540, slow and rapid
drop. The last week of the month end
ing on Saturday last, the custom ore
dropped off, there being not to exceed
435 stamps dropping. Now that the
miners have returned from their week of
hilarity, in ten day’s time the output of
ore will be up to its former average.
The Eldora Herald of Saturday chron
icles the discovery of a monster vein of
good quartz at the west base of Arapa
hoe peak in Grand Island district, Bould
er county. An assay of the float gave
$136.20 per ton 6 8 10 gold and 33-100
ounces silver per ton. The vein runs
southeast into Arapahoe peak, the line
of the vein crossing the apex of the
peak. Some years ago Mr. McGlothhn
brought over to Central fine appearing
quartz from the headwaters of Straw
berry creek, but no such results wereob
tained from the assay from any of the
quartz. C. H. Stipp and E. H. Kuhl
xnan are the discoverers and locators of
the new find. They have taken out an
100 pound sample from clear across the
vein, to ascertain more accuartely the
values the quartz contains.
M. F. Loech of Boulder, contributed
the following to last Thursday’6 Denver
Republic.in: I stated in your columns
less than two years ago that no new pro
cesses were needed to make a success of
handling the low grade ores produced in
this state. Especially the secret and
mysterious process that is put out to
save more than the fire assay shows the
ore to contain. Concentrating to make
a clean product regardless of trying to
make a close saving of values (a thing
that it is impossible) secures all that can
be easily and cheaply had by concentra
tion aud the use of cyanide for the final
treatment will in nearly all cases get
from 95 to 99 per cent of the values.
Cleuu concentrates is a very desirable
product for the smelters and I have no
doubt they will do all they can to en
courage this system of lulling. There is
no excuse now for any good and well lo
cated concentrating mill standing idle.
The addition of a cyanide plant fills the
missing link. We have made very ex
teDsivo tests on this line here in Boulder
county, and alwoys with first-class re
sults. It is very safe to say that any
method that will handle Boulder county
ore will answer for any other ores pro
duced in this state. Our tests show that
with a well equipped concentrating mill
and cyanide plant of 50 tons per day ca
pacity low grade ore can be converted
into money at an expense not exceeding
$1.50 per ton. In the two operations of
concentrating and cyaniding nearly full
assay value is saved. This $1.50 per ton
will include the expease of shipping and
and smelting charges on the concen
trates. This plan of milling if adopted
will add many millions to the produciiou
of gold, silver, load and copper in this
