Wc are indebted to Ihc Waratah  Minerals Co., Ltd., of London, and  ��� lo the Welsbach Co-, of 140 Ellis  street, San Francisco, Cal., foi* the  following instructions regarding  the saving of platinum and its associated metals. Both of these  comi-auk'S are buyers of these me-  l:ils, and correspondence is respectfully solicited. Mr. W. P. Butler,  140 Ellis street, San Francisco, will  be pleased lo furnish all further information desired.  Platinum metals will not amalgamate'with mercury without special  treatment. To save them concentrating appliances must be used and  these will also save most of. the  coated gold, which is usually found  in black sand aud will' not amalgamate without treatment.,  Ordinary riffles in. a gold saving  flume cannot be relied upon to save  any considerable proportion of the  platinum metals; by Tar tlie-greatest  value creeps over the riffle aiid is  lost.  A good concentrating surface is  new Brussels or Moquette carpet.  A better aud more durable surface  is a special grade of cocoa matting.  It is made 27-36 and 54 inches  wide; 27 inches is about the'most  convenient width to use.  Make a box i6yi inches wide,  10 or 12 feet long, with 6 inch  sides and give it steep grade, say  24 inches in 12 feet. Screen out  the gravel using a straight flat torn  iron with holes 1-8 to 1-4 inches in  diameter; if practicable, use clean  water and just enough to run your  sands nicely on your box or table.  The flow of both- water and'saud  can b; regulated and controlled by  strips above the matting at the  head of the box to prevent too  great a depth of water or sand. To  clean the matting, which should be  done every few days, according to  the richness of your material, first  let a little clean water run over the  malting to take away the dirt; ther.  take it up carefully and wash it in  a shallow tank, flapping it to and  fro to clean it of the concentrates  and dirt.  A good deal of value will be  found ou the floor of the box or  the table, under the matting. Brush  these concentrates up with a stiff  scrubbing brush, using a little  clean water to en rry away the dirt,  then put the concentrates into your  washing tank.  These concentrates in the tank  can be cleaned by'allowing them to  run slowly over a wide sawed  board of ordinary roughness. Use  .only enough   clean  water  10 carry  out the dirt. The 'metals will  catch on' the b'-.ard and can be  brushed up into a vessel having .a  straight edge like an ordinary dust  pan.  1 The grade of this concentrating  board should l>e about 10 or 12  inche; in 12 feet. If the board be  feathered in sawing, turn the  leathers downward and n:>t upwaid  against the .stream. Care must be  ,used iu this operation not to run  loo much water, otherwise the  metals ntay.be carried away before  they have a chance to get down  and catch on the board surface. A  little practice will show you how to  regulate the water aiid material.  The concentrates , obtained will  contain the coated gold, platinum  and platinum metals. Put them into a pan with a very strong solution of cyanide of potassium and  enough mercury to amalgamate the  gold. " Stir thoroughly' for ten or  fifteen minutes and the gold will  generally amalgamate. , Pour off  the cyanide solution and use it  next time.  The platinum metals will remain  with the sand in the pan. To clean  them of the sand use a rough board  in the same manner as before, keep,  ing this .board for. this purpose.  Use a very slow trickling stream,  allowing it to drip into the bucket  or pan of concentrates, just fast  enough to-run them out and.011 to  the board���the bucket being lipped  for this purpose. Watch this operation carefully and do not run away  any metals.,  They will be easily recognised  from the. following description:  Platinum metals ��� are all tin white  when clean, but the grain* or scales  are often too line to catch the eye,  and collect with a heavy fine saud  and lie in streaks of brown, brown-  red, or lead colour, -which creep  along the board aud are evidently  heavy.    Save these concentrates.  If you desire to clean them entirely the sand- can be dissolved by  dilute nitric acid and washed away.  Nitric acid does not affect the platinum metals.  The information given above is  applicable only to a small mine and  the plant must be enlarged according to circumstances, using the  same principles. 11 is better to increase the number of tables than to  enlarge them. If the local conditions should not permit you to use  as long a table as 12 feet, use a  shorter one, but do not be afraid of  giving it a good grade. In general  do not crowd your tables. Use a  steep grade with not too much  water. Any of the surfaces named  will catch the precious metals, if  they can be brought down to it.  The plant must be so arranged as  to cause the materials and water to  run vv*ith an even spread giving the  tables grade enough to carry off the  sands, which, are all more or less  rounded, and to .allow the heavier  metals, usually flattened, to catch  oh the matting. When once caught  they  .an?   practically saved   unless  m tela  Finest  Wines,   Liquors   arid "Cigars.  Furnished"Rooms by the Day,   ���  Week or Month.  Ihe matting   is   allowed to run dry. 1  In    this   case Wlien   water is again  turned  on   many of  the fine scales  will rise up and go ofl".  Refined platiniuu is now about as  valuable as gold, and crude platinum, as it is found in the mines, is  worth about 75 per cent of the prica  of refined platinum. Iridosmium,  invariably associated with platinum in its natural state, and until  now almost valueless, is worth from  $6'to$ioper ounce, according to  quality. It is tin white in colour  and' is heavier than gold. When  concentrators are used the very  fine metals often hang behind in  streaks, which iu mass are of a  brownish-red or leaden colour and  "creep" along the concentrator.  i*oi< ���  Get your friends to subscribe for  "The Atlin Telegraphic Bulletin,"  ���weekly.
