The
first
use
ofth
: ter
n  is simply
an evidence of ignorance of the
meaning of the words by the user
of them. The second use is a careless one. The close limitation of
the third use overlooks the practical circumstances of mining, and
can suggest misleading conclusions,
though it is fully exact and correct
in some circumstances. Broadened
a little it will answer very well.
Ore in sight should have a con-
should without explanation always
describe the same definite thing.
It is suggested that " ore in sight"
should mean a body of rock in
place, exposed by mine workings
on no less than three sides, which,
removable by the most economical
mining methods applicable, shall
contain of estimable recoverable!
values at least the cost of obtaining
them. This is sufliciently elastic
to include as ore in sight the waste
rock, not containing payable values,
which in tbe most economical mining is unavoidably taken out and
treated with the latter. It does
not include such barren rock where
the economical mining methods sep-
. urates it from 't~ny: ble rock rock before it receives tvetallurgical treatment. For ex ••rple, a 4-inch wide
streak ot pay ore, if separable from
the waste that must be mined cut
to get it, may be ore in sight. The
same streak that cannot be separated from the waste may not be ore
in sight.—Mining & Scientific

Estimating " Ore in Sight."
Tbe definition of what constitute:
ore in sight is receiving considerable discussion among engineers
and mine operators. The personal
equation has entered into its use
rather more extensively thi
compatible with thi definiteness
that an art that is ultimately to te
an exact science should possess.
Almost any one who has a mining
claim that it is desired to sell writes
for the promotion of the sale a descriptive paper which by courtesy
is referred to as a mining report.
The use of the term "ore in sight"
in these literary documents is free
and elastic. Any rock in place is
