McCIlntock Visits the Field and Describes It la Detail "Among the nicheat and Moat Tie xnarkable of Arizona." James H. .McCIIotock, thn wcll kanwn nowspnper man of Phoenix, visited the Grand Canyon copper dis ti iet Inst month and gives the fol lowing as his Impressions of this new mining region: Crossing the northern portion of.Ar irtmu lies the far-fa mod Canyon of the Colorado river the Grand Canyon pre-eminent, Incomparable, the grandest gash known on the face of nature, where rocks are riven to the depth. of 7,000 feet from the surface ami where for hundreds of miles the strata are exposed far deeper than in any mine on earth. It is the ideal re gion for the prpspector, for Naturo has already done tiie "dovelopraent work" on thn claims that hu may discover and locate. Arizona throughout is 'mineralized" to an extent unknown prolmlily to nny other country. It Is therefore logical that the erosion of the river's clutnnel has exposed many rich ledges of the precious ores, for many years successfully nil pud l Other parts of the Southwest. I speiitpur weeksfpf May and June of the current year among' the mines oflhe Grand Canyon district. The conrr mine I believe are among" the ru'l Ost and moyt remarkable of Ari z ilia mid I penk from art experience fiat, embraces Investigation of all the other copper camp of the Territory. JIot uiitnbUf of i ht Canyon district minis are those which lie on or near ( . ta i. the Can von V southern' rim. 'For n' dislnnco of about fifteen miles souili and for forty miles along the line of the Canyou the country limestone, carboiilferons iir character, bear'reop- per and lrou in apprteiablo quantities. From the evidence of the prospeetnrx and my own observations.! tvnnli say that the really vnlunblo portion of J t'ti.-i iaimooso deposit is about three riiik'!J in width jitiil ut least fifieeu 'miles in length, the length being from uorih to south. . . This copper'tHstrici on the southern rim U modern iudeed. The Hint loca catiotisof anyjmpoiUnce were made lust Oi'tobet1. There" was even more tiiHti the usuui excltcmeut over new finds when thn specimens fouud were exhibited and the cold and suqyv of the jui-ceediug winter months did not pre vent the sinking of, , more than 200 cluiins. Little more ilmn the statutory a'Sessment work has been done ou au of tlieui and the. deepest workiugs at tlia lll0 of my departure were down 6aly thirty-live feet. That far down the pro preserved uniformity of char acter Bud richness. In character the ores are carbonates, black and red oxides,., handsome ores, mainly 'of the azurite and malachite varieties. They are found only where the' limestone has been disturbed through seismic action, and never Where the regular stratification of the region remains undisturbed: They are Id variably closely associated with the limestone and run high iu Iron, form ing' an ore that carries to the smelter lU own flux. The percentages of cop per run high. 4 JiaVe seeu many large s'.'edtuens that exceeded, 60 per ceut. (rood authorities state that the average of the ores piled up ou the dumps of the district will exceed 20 per cent. Tills is 400 pounds of metal to the ion. Tue ores of the Lake, Superior region are worked with profit wheu they run down to sixteen pounds to the ton of ore. , Aa'to quantity: ,Tue ore lies hori eonUlly, or nearly so, and no man of coarse can tell whether, the' strata so far exposed are urijWjald with others. But to-day. on the'ilump, of one com pany alone (the Tilsyu Development company of whlchj Lombard. Goode & Co., of Chicago. jKew York and Lon don are tiie, Eastern representatives ami duancial agents) are several thou sand tons of ore Uken out in simple assessment and surface development work and tens of thousands more tons are exposed In the cuts and tunnel,. and drifts. It would be a rich disrict worthy of capital hik of reduction works. If the ore Wiles were no deeper than they have ill ready been developed. But there is uo ijouht that the great est riches of the district are at even greater1 depths. I-believe that in the district will yet be (lie deepest work ings known to miners anywhere ou the face of the globe. The cupper Is with out doubt eruptive In Its deposition. It has been vomited from the depths of the earth, and found lodgment in the liven limn and Sandstone rocks, spread ing out, branch-like, from the cleft of the priucipal eruptions, where now of course are to be '.found the mother lodes. Then Nature; with her iron, lime and oxygen, leached off the sul phur. Perhaps Hi is will account for the presence In the, nenr vicinity of immense beds of sulphate of lime, gypsum. This eruptive tbebiy is carried out on Inspection of the mines of the Can- oil's depths. I found three mother lodes'' of copper at depths that are al moHt startling. Tlie highest in alii- tude h I he Ilogait claim of the Tusayan ciimpany, iiiiislderedJjy tho company's manager, Gen. V.iO.

It has a de)ith of 2,200 feet from, the rim. The ores vary, though mainly chaly-pj rite. They assay op (o 72 per ceut. of metal aud average Ihioughoiit very high. Tho third ledge of copper ore was nt tho very bottom of the Canyon, in the primeval granltu, 0,000 feet from ilinsuifaco and dipping below tho bed if tho stream. This ledgo has never been worked and. has but lately been discovered. It bus a width of about sixty feet and its ore face is exposed for fuily 1,200 feet of depth. Tho lo cation is lint fur from the bottom of the Uuss trail, iiftecu miles below the liogau lead. ' ' 4 Tho question of reduction is 'gener ally one of the weightiest In ,copper mining. Some of the .ores of the dis trict liuve betill Valuable enough ' to ship to Pueblo, Colo., and Aguas Citl ieutes, Mexico, for smelting. The waters of the Indian garden creek can be readily piped with a fall of at least 3,000 feet to the Colorado's level, the power to be returned by electric wire to the summit. The ereek has au av erage flow of 100 miner's Inchet, or nearly 1,000 gallons a minute. Sev eral other such water powers, can be developed at other points along the Canyon's side.- bomethlug that would approximate Niagara would be the power to be secured from Cataract creek. I should judge the minimum flow of this stream to be about 60,000 miners' inches. The drop to the Col- oradorlver within ten miles Is fully 3,000 feet. Timber there U in plenty on the rim. Coal could be, secured from Gal lup,' on the Atlantic & faciilo, just across the Arizoua line, or from the Little Colorado mines, if it were made possible to use .the river for, Its car riage Coke could be obtaiued from Trididad, Colo., at low cost. Though copper Is the, main, metal of, the Grand Canyon region it' is1 by no' meaus the only one. ! Gold is found in quariz at thn Niirf.tee and flintier down in pyrites. One ledge nf the pyrites I- 200 feet in width. It assays little lu gold but would be of immense value for the production of sulphuric acid, for the reduction of sulpuretic copper ores by the Swedish process. Lead carbonates carrying silv.r are found on Cataract creek. The unusual pro ducts include long staple asbestos, sail and several kluds of precious stones. Uf course a volume could be writ ten on the possibilities of mineral de velopment in such a region. I have done little more limn Indicate the pos nihilities. I believe the district will hmu be known as one of the greatest mineral producers of the world. J. 0UBTIS WASSON- Writes a belter to "The Sun-Demo crat" While In Mid Ocean. S. S.
