flettioda of (letting; out Ore In an
Economical Manner Described.
It is'usually tlie case in new districts
present iug a variety of new conditions
that a good deal of preliminary work
must, lie done to determine tlie host
methods nf ihiljing lind freai Ing ores,
This lias lieen It-tie in Die Hoiindary
dlstriet, the ores of which, iwarule,
are of very low grade, occurring in
deposit of great extent without, well
defined walls.
It U the purpose of this paper lo describe the methods of milling at the
Mother Lode mine iu Deadwood camp,
near Greenwood, and the reasons
wliieh have led up In their adoption.
Tlje ore deposit here outcrops at intervals for a distance of iihout 2,000
feet, the width in explored por! ion
averaging perhaps 110 feet although
the absence of any defined walls prevents exact measures heing given.
The dip jb 70 degrees easterly, and
pilch toward the south at an angle yet
undetermined. Only the ground to
the niirih nf lhe shafl, which is located
cenl rally, has been explored as yel.
At the beginning of stopingopet at ions,
the ore hody had been developed by a
northerly drift from shaft fin tlie 200
fuut level, the drift extending Ioapparent end of ore. The deposit was ci^iss*';
cut lit intervals of about 100, feel,
Similar work was also .dojia on 'Ml
level, A. winze, to surface'About,500
feet to north of shaft, afforded good
ventilation, '• \
li was the original,intention to sort,
all the ore from lhe mine, tilling Ihe
slopes with the waste, and with Unlock' blast ed fnun the walls or "elsewhere obtained. To lhis.qnd a sy_teln
of belt conveyors was arranged whereby the pie frnm the shaft was dumped
into a Nil. a Gates crusher, thence
passing over a 3 foot wide picking hell
to tho ore bins, Tlie waste wis drop
ped inin side pockets fulling upon allot hei; belt system, whereby it was con*
vry.efl tn a hinat top of winze, whence.
it iviis to In* dropped into the slopes.
Mtniuy tie said that the term "waste"
Spgenerldly speaking, merely compiir
jjtive, fnr the whole of the ore liody
;,*(«. .Hi tbiiVxcepi inn noted below) contains copper, gold'and sliver in varying
degree, and waste is merely rock wilh
lesser quantities of these metals. The
sorting and conveying belts worked to
a nicety, but the smelter had heen in
operation but a short lime when it
became apparent thai its capacity for
self tliixing ores was much greater
than had been thought possihle, and
consequently smelting costs were lower
thnn bad heen figured. A direct result
of tliis was lhat thpiiHlnilloii of waste
was altered and its quantity greatly
diminished. And furlher, lhat" the
cost of sorting nut. the diminished
waste was approximately equal lo
smelting lt, for even the poorest of the
rock contains some values to offset in
part the smelling charges. These
conditions necessitated the abandonment of the Ailing plan for stopes.
Also the-sorting of ores was suspended
save from cerlain ores from 300 level,
where tbe waste happens to he totally
barren and easily sorted out.
Tlie tilling sysiem haling been dropped, it was llien planned to timber tlust, ipes in the ordinary fashion, hut
tliis plan was abandoned ou account of
lii^b cost of limber compared with ore
coni cuts.
A third alternative was next adopted
in one slope—ihat of timbering the
whole of the Hour of stupe heavily,
only the excess of ore from above being
dropped through chutes conveniently
placed. This plan was going nicely
until the rnof of stupe wus some 20
feel over timbers, when a mass of ore
became del ached from roof, whicli
mass wi ghed some hundred Ions,
Everything in ils path was crushed
and the slope wrecked. Luckily no
one was hurt,
A further and final plan was then
adopted. The ore body was divided
into slopes 'fl) to 40 feel wide, the
length of slopes being the dislance
across ore body, Tlie crosscuts already
exist ing were used, and others cut
were needed under the center of each
stope. Front these crosscuts upraises
were made SKI feet apart. These were
made 10 In 12 feel high, and were then
connected by second and parallel
ci oBS-iiit*. From these Ial I er crosscuts
the stopes were opened out tlie proposed widlh, and then carried vertically
upward, the slim I upraises being cribbed and furnished with gales for load
ing. Between the slopes, pillars 2(1 to
2ii feet in thickness wore lefl, these
being frcipii-iiily pierced lo allow In*
lercoiiiliitiniciition and ventilation.
In Iho slope where lhe wreck occurred a very heavily Hindered passage
cm-responding to a crosscut was ludll,
shutes being placed at IK) foot Inlet--
vil Is.
The empty space was filled with porphyry blasted from a blanket dyke,
wbich extends tlirough all the gi ootid
yel explored.
These stopes will lie carried up lo a
point 100 feel above the 200 level w hern
they will meet with the. suiface winkings to he described. After this occurs
Ilie ore rtiinaining in slopes above the
porphyry will be sent through ilie
shutes, and as much of the pillars removed at siinie lime us safety may dictate.
The ore helow porphyry may lie removed at will, as tliis dyke is very
thick and solid and will stand any
pressure. In this method of working
nearly W) per cent of broken ore must
be left in the stopes for a considerable
period, but to offset this, the inteiest
on capital so tied up Is but ll fraction
of Ihe cost of limbering these great
stopes. Mot-cover, the system is as
safe as mining can lie made, Ihe roof
of stopes always being near the men,
and Ihere can he nn wrecks occasioned
hy a cave. F- rther, tliere being no
danger from liuibets giving way, Ire
mendous blasts can lie employed, and
the ore broken down in great quantities at a lime. One drill will frequently break down from 75 to 80 tons In 21
On the SOO level, the pillars come directly helow those on the 200, but: in
future levels the distance will he increased from 100 feet to nearly 175 to
allow of less rock being left between
levels, and less development having lo
lie done.
.To supplement the rfuijmt from underground, a great amount of ore is
obtained hy quarrying. In the hill
whichjrlses snniR200 feet nvet-sun oitnd-
ing (hit,'ft quarry (or "Glory Hole" as
li is-locally styled) is in npeiatinn, this
quarry being 110 feet nliove Hat. and 50
feet/ above collar of shaft. Ore is ut
present run down a gravity train lo
Gates crusher, and thence over conveying bells to bins on the. flat. This
No. 5 crusher, experience has shown to
lie far too small tn admit of economical
work, the ore having to be reduced III
10 inch size in order io pass into crush
er. This reduction has mainly to lie
affected hy "bulldnzing" with high per
cent dynamite, the tuck being too
hard for hammer breaking. Tn obviate
this difficulty,.and in admit of cheaper
handling, n tunnel has to be driven
into hill from level of Hat. This connects by a 12x12 upraise withlhe
quarry. In a pit on flat next the railway an immense Farrell crusher with
jaw opening 2x3 feet is now being
Ore will he dropped down Ihe upraise, and there loaded into cars having
a capacity of I tons. Trains of these
will be drawn hy mules to the crusher
pit, where they will he dumped hv
compressed air over a grizzly lending
to crusher. The M-reenings and crush*,
ed ore will be elevated to a bin beside
the rail way.
As quarrying proceeds, olher raises
will he made, and tbe level of lhe
quarry floor at the same time lie lowered until the Hut level is readied and
the lops of stopes eneounteteil, when
these latter mny be emptied. The
present Gates crusher will take care of
all ore from I lie shaft as al present, its
rapacity heing from 400 to 500 tons per
21 hours when fed wiih ore properly
broken.—Frederick Keffer, M. E., in
Canadian Mining Review.

which contains a lengthy report from
Fifth.  Street,  Mia.
the superintendent, Chai lesOsteilhurg.
The report says in part:
The quantity of ore available for the
mill frmn I lie second level tu the surface on lheihiain vein, Ukinir 1(1 feet
hs an average width (ulthough at no
pnint on lhe second level where il is
opened is it less than 18 feet), and only
taking the. length of the present drift
(810 feel) is liV.t. «) tons.
As there is guuxl ore in huth facep of
the drift and the sin-fare showings .mi-
tiinie through Ihe claim, it is only
reiisunalile to expect that it will he the
Bailie as what has heen opened, and we
could therefore count ou having250,000
tuns ahove the second level of the
main vein.
Taking the width of the average
froii^the third to the second level as
20 feet, the distance hei ween levels heing 101 feet, ihis level would supply
280,000 tons, fur thehngth of the claim.
The nOrtl) ledge is seven feel w ide.
anil opened on hoth levels, and could
he counted ofl for 60,000 Ions.
We could thus reasonably depend on
having an ore supply sulllcieiit lo lake
'M) toils per day fur many years.
A pleasing feature of the main vein
is, lhe gradual increase in width as
depth is reached,
On the surface it is six feet wide, on
the Hrst level eight to ten feet, on the
sc nil I -vel IH lu 21 feet, anil  on the
third level Ul feet.
The value of the ore on the third
level su far as we have heen ahle to
prove it, is greater than on the other
levels, us 77 assays taken every two
feet as the work of drifting wus continued, g've an average uf $6,88 per
Until more drifting is done on this
level, and shules put in, as well as tlie
necessary timbers, whieh must he

The work heing dune on the second

he reduced lo $1.30 per Ion
The increase iff cost tn furnish the
ore for alt additional twenty stamps
would not he over 50 cents per ton, as
the only additional lahor required
would lie. one extra man in tlie mill
and thiee more men in the mine.
We had no snow until three week*
ago, and as our wood supply is taken
from the hilh above the mine,' which
are vety steep, and the ground la'came
frozen and icy, it was imp'o»sihlet« get
it down, and we were compelled to fire
the boilers with green wood, obtained
wliere we could get il. At times it
was impossible to obtain a supply, and
we had to close the mill down on sev-
ern I occasions,
Our chief difficulty, however, has
been with the water supply. The
dams were poorly constructed and
we could nut get enough to supply Ihe
mill. To overcome this difficulty,
which was irreparable in tlie frozen
condition of the ground, we caught
the water in a small basin below Ihe
mill, after it had run through with the
lailings, and pumped it hack, using it
a second time.
Tliis enables us In run the mill, hut
nl a certain loss of our values, ns the
water was uot clean and would clog up
the small spouts on the vanners,
'When we lmd clean waler the exlrac
i ion went over 85 per cent, hut with
this water the average extraction was
only 73 por cent of our values,
Iiy increasing the present water
supply, which can be easily done hy
the addition of tiie water from Heed
creek, of which" your compuny have
the water rights, and which will give
you ample waler for all requirements.
as well as a considerable amount of
power, I Mieve the extraction will
reach 00 per cent of the values,
Fire at the Jewel.
Last Tuesday the shafl house over
the new shnfl at the Jewel mine,
known as Howe's shaft, was destroyed
by fin1. The hoisting engine in it and
the gallows frame were also damaged,
sn tbat until repairs shall have heen
effected it will not hn practicable li
continue gcling out ore from Ibis
pirt of l he mine. There are, however,
large reserves of ore in I lie levels run
frnm the main shaft, so that shipment
of ore to the Oranhy snielter will nol
be Interfered wilh. Mr, MeyerhofT
has half a dozen teams at work hauling ore from the Jewel to the railway
siatinn ul Kholt, those Inking down
alum! lid tons a day.
