The Oliver Iron Minin;, com
pany has decided to sink the
shaft commenced by the Dottoto
Iron Company before the mine
changed ownership. The im
rnensiiy of the undertaking may
be letter understood when it is

E located in the hanin about
4w'' feet f roni' the old shaft and
was sunk to a depth of T 1 feet
who. 1 work was suspended. It is
a Ox 10 inside of timbers and
has three compartments The
roc!: is diorile and it is probable
that this rock will continue with
them until tin? shaft cuts tin ore
formation which will occur at a
depth of HuC feet.
"Work preparatory to starting
tosink was commerced last, Tues
day when one crew was started
tunneling the railroad track for
the pipi line and anotlnu crew
staited clearinir jrouf.d for
the placing of a 'pulVer' to
handle the rock from the shaft.
Four inch steam arid live inch
air pipes are? to be installed it be
in' the policy of the Oliver
yvioplf! to to install at the outset
: "V? )paratus of a capacity siifiicieut
for all time.
Tiie new shaft will be attacked
at three points. One crew will
start sinking from surface: an
othor will crosscut, and raise
from the sixth le( 1 and another
will do lik(?vvise from the ninth
level. Work will be crowded at
all points so as to eet the shaft
in condition to pull ore through
at the very earliest time possible.
The Pewabic company, of Iron
Mountain has at tlx? present time
three explorations tfoiii on in
this county as follows:
Tju: Ciiyktal Fat.ls
TIms exploration is on lands
of Peter McOovern on the .shores
of Runklo lake. The kinds lie
south of the Hilltop mine and
are supposed to lie rossed by
the same formation. At the
present time the work is confin
ed to stand pipe work to test the
lodjru. A diamond drill is used
and short holes are drilled to
make sure that the true lod'o
'.s found in each hob'. A couple
of pipes have been lcdrcd and
the drill is beinjj set this week
for the third hole. The surface
overburden is very heavy in this
vicinity varying f'om 100 "to lfiO
feet. Prior to the drill being
placed on tho property much
test pitting was done up on tho
hillside near tho Crystal Falls
mine where the surface is much
shallower. The ledge encount
ered so far in both pits and
stand pipes is grey slates. Work
will bo continued until the prop
erty is thoroughly explored.
Tin: .Hekcuwood
In tho vicinity of the station
of the same name about seven
miles nbovo Iron River these
people own a largo tnict of land
ond ,havo been conducting ex
plorations thereon for a couple
of years.' Work in this locality
is made difficult because of tho
very heavy overburden. The surface-
varies from 100 to 200 feet
and much of this is a hard
pan Hint is so hard that it is nec
essary to drill and blast it the
same as so much rock, firey
slates make up the ledge met
with so far.
Hero too, the Pewabic. people
own a lot of land and they have
have been exploring these lands
olT and on for a number of years.
Present operations are being
prosecuted a few miles north of
the stat ion. The surface here is
heavier than at any other point,
varying from il.'O to I'.ok fc-t .and
then? is a heavy billow of watej
I generally encountered to a depth
of i?(K) feet. The ledge met with
in this locality so far is a, grey
slate very similar to that found
at tho other places.

Shipping 1ms been suspended at
this rniiK and stocking of ore
comnu'need. The mine will 1 e
wo rived to its fuli capacity this
winter. There i's much talk of
sinking the shaft nnd it is proba
b'e that a new level will be add
to the mine this winter. About
sixty men are employed in the
mine under Capt. 11. M. Lowry.
Tom Hrooks is dork a:id time
keeper. Tji7:Piki:.
Hon. C. T. Roberts and A. K.
Pike have secured through A.
L. Flcwelling an option . on lot
; Sec. 110 Jool'. This property
lies b"twcon the Youngstown
mine and the Paint river and
there is little doubt but that tin?
ore from the Youngstown mine
extends over onto this property.
It is probable that the ore lies
at quite a depth but that it exists
was quite conclusively shown in
adiamond drill hole put down
in 18H1 by the late P. E Dunn
in which the ore was encountered
at a depth of 000 feet. Mr.
Roberts hopes to be able to place?
the property with a strong Chi
cago concern with which he is
dickering at the present time.
However, he is not waiting for
someone to take it before start
ing exploratory work for Mr.
Pike has a crew at work' sinking
an exploring shaft about five
rods north of the Pri. tol switch.
This shaft will bo carried down
to the ledge but what, the? further
program is, is not known at the
present time.
round Ore.
Peter Holmes, of Menominee,
has found ore on louds belonging
to him4 the SW of the NW
b '.V2. This properly lies , .bout
a quarter of a mile west of Ur
ban's spur on the Amasa branch
of the CSi N W railroad. Mr.
Holmes haf been exploring on
the land all fall and encountered
the ore in the last hole put down
before work was suspended for
the winter. A row of staudpipes
was put down across the forma
tion tho last one locating the
ore formation." This pipe was
put down through 131 feet of
quicksand and hard pan and an
enteral a ledge of mixed ore.
Tho pipe was continued down
llvo feet in tho mixture which
cleaned with every inch. Tho
sludgo that was washed up from
tho last foot was fully three
quarters pre. Tho land is owned
in feo by Mr. Holmes and is open
for option. .' ,

Negotiations that' have been
going on for the past two months
or more between (Jon. 'Alger and
the Donora Mining company, of
Pittsburg, for the lease of the
Volunteer with an option of pur
chase were eomsumated during
t In? past week and the Donora
Company will take charge on the
first of December and at once
commence the work' of unwater
ing the mine. Mr. Oscar 15,
Warren, formerly of Palmer, but
for several years past occupying
a responsible position with the
tho Mahoning company with
headquarters at Ribbing, Minn.,
has boon engaged as general
manager, and will arrive at. Pal
mer on the UHtli, his family
having preceded him reaching
here by the early train yester
day morning. Tin? Donora is an
independent company composed
entirely ol Pittsburg capitalists
and it is tin? purpose to work
the mine Jo its fell capaeily,
from, the very start. The same
company has taken on option on
Section IL', of the Pittsburg iv
Lake Superior Iron company
and commenced operating a din
mond drill there some ten days
ago. The Iron Herald is in
formed that it is the intention of
tin? company to have something
of a stockpile for shipment upon
the opening of navigation. The
buildings and plant of machinery
are intact as left by the Cleveland-Cliffs
company, but a short
time ago, so that comparatively
little time will bo required in
making tho start. The nocos
sary supply of coal has already
been shipped from lower lake
ports and will be delivered at
the mine in amplo time. The
revival of this industry at this
time indicates that tho season of
1892 will be one of unusual activ
ity on the Cascado rango, Nc
gaunee herald.
Preparations aro being mado
to sink the Cyclops shaft of
Penn Iron Mining company to a
greater depth.
It is rumored that Penn
Ijon Mining company will soon
begin tho sinking of a shaft on
their Central Vulcan property.
