THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER AND OUR MINERAL WEALTH.
PAGE FIVE BIG ORE BODY CUT IN UNITED AMERICAN .18 Around The Town SATURDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1919. BLOCKING OUT ORE Mr. and Mrs. G. S. Holmes have A MERRY i f I To Put it mildly, the shareholders of United American in Kingman and Oatman are enthusiastic over the big showing of ore on the 300 level of that property. This ore was brought to light in the crosscut from the level into the Aztec vein. The ground through which the crosscut was driven is one big mass of vein matter, and more than 40 feet of quartz has been cut in the Aztec, and at last reports the walls had not been cut. Yester day the drills were still in quartz of a milling grade. When first encount ered the ore gave a leturn of $7 for five' feet in width, but after going through this and into some brecciated andesite another big body of quartz was enocuntered that gave much bet ter values. It is this vein that is be ing driven into. Small stringers had been encountered that gave returns up to $60 per ton, but the masses of quartz would not hold up to mill val ues until the Aztec vein was entered. It is now believed that drifting on the vein at this level is liable to bring in a big body of high grade, but the imanagewnt feel that they should go o the i50t before doing any large amountVnf lateral work. The present development was carried on with the object of locating the veins across the 4 big outcrops to the south from the shaft, as there was known to be a lat eral throw of the veins. This throw was found to be about 60 feet. But the work proved more than the man agement looked for, as it has shown the possibility of a great body of ore of mill values, and the shareholders are correspondingly happy.
