EXTRA SPECIAL,  5 c. per M->nth  ������Mier  The new Crushing Plant���������Ore Bodies on 60 foot Level���������New-  Diamond Drill���������200 I_evel���������Glory Holes.  The editor was a visitor at the Mother Lode mine last week. He saw many  new things.  The Crushing Plant.  The new crushing plant has been in  operation for some time, and runs  v.i'hout a hitch. The ore comes up in  t e bif_* four ton skips at the rate of a  irip e\\ ry two minutes (from the level  of the mule tunnel) and is dumped  automatically into a bin at the head of  tfu* shaft. From this bin it is fed  from gates directly into the crusher.  This method is an advantage over  the old one as in this manner the  crusher is supplied with a pretty  steady stream of ore, instead of at one  moment being worked to its full capacity and  the  next   running   empty.  j After passing through the crusher the  ore is run onto the conveying belt  which takes it to the big bins.  In the Mule Tunnel.  A large, well lighted passage * now  connects the station at the 60 foot level of the shaft with the mule tunnel.  All the ore from the different quarries  is now taken through this drift to the  main shaft and dumped into the big  pocket there.  Continued on page 5.  INDEX OF THE WEEK'S NEWS.

Nothing has been done   on   the   200  - i and 300 foot levels for over two  years, with the ex  ception of diamond drilling.  More of this  drilling will be  done here and in  other parts of the  mine as soon a*  the new diamond  drill machinery  now on the road  is received.  This method of  exploration   is   as  satisfactory       i n  provi n g ore bodies  as tunneling,. and  has the  advantage  of being much   cheaper   and   a   great  deal more rapid.

All of the formerly seper-  ate glory holes are how merged into  one, with only ridges to mark the former seperations.
