LOOKING BACKWARD AND
FORWARD
By J. E. Spurr,   Engineering and Mining Journal-Press
IN GENERAL 1923 was a fairly prosperous year for mining-, and the outlook is
that 1924 will be more prosperous. Average prices for copper, lead and zinc were
10 to 20 p?r cent higher than in 1922. The
year 1924 begins without a burdensome
surplus of stocks on hand of any of these
metals. It is true that the price of copper
seems to be definitely established atalevelitreat' especially lead-zinc mixtures.
has increased, and exports are taking care
of the surplus over a greatly increased
consumption; smelters have not made so
much money as have the miners, due to
the increased price paid for ores.
Silver is in a better position tjjan we
expected. The close of the Pittman Act
purchases did not cause a fall in the world
price, which continues firm around 63c.
There is a tendency to organize in the
mining industries; producers and manufacturers are combining or co-operating.
The iron industry has been active; the
Lake Superior region shipped 60,000,000
tons of ore���the best year but one in its
history. Nickel mining in Sndbury has
been revi ved.
As for mining operation, the introduction of economies and reduction of
costs in mining have been significant. This
has been effected partly as a result of important mergers.
To the efficiency of labor have contributed increased attention on the part
of employers to safely, welfare and educa-
cational work; the increased working of
men on contract; and prohibition. Increased efficiency of equipment has been
notably advanced in consequence of the
development of mechanical loading devices underground, to take the place of hand
shoveling.
There is the indication that modern
metallurgical methods will make available
many complex ores formerly difficult to

considerably below what the industry expected. Producers, however, have adapted themselves largely to conditions, cutting costs wherever possible.
As for lead, indications are that prices
are pointing toward a permanently higher
level. The demand has been enormous,
as it has been for copper; but no new large
deposits of lead ore have recently come to
light as in the ease of copper.
Zinc production in the United Slates
ing in general has tended toward simplification of flow sheets.   More attention is
being paid to leaching.   Small changes in
milling have  brought  great economies. I
Greater attention is being paid to saving j
and utilizing byproducts, and increasing!
income by their sale.   The terrific drain i
which present consumption is putting on
the relatively limited ore reserves of the
world and the faet that there is but one
crop has been frequently pointed out. The
great problem to be faced will be the di -
covery of new mines.
