A little more than three tons of
the ore shipped to the local test
mill by K. \V. Herschberger was run
through the mill last week anti the
cleanup was made on Saturday. While
it has not been assayed as yet it is
expected, judging from the amalgam,
that the ore will run about $100 to
the ton. Out of three tons there
were about 200 pounds of concen
trates saved, but as none of these
have yet been assayed, it is impossi
ble to guess at their worth The
ore was sent in from the Friedrichs
lode claim near Ridgetop.
The mill is now busy with a ship
