Second only in importance tu .:. ■
strike of pay ore ill tne 1000 fo I
level of the Vinir mine   is   llu-    sllik'l
which we hate to record 'his week
the Foghorn mine. The two (ieepesi
developed mines iu the Yinir district,
have now proved to a ilei.ii.i.stratiuil,
tint!, the values in the Vmir veins du
persist with depth, and that tic. p
mining is to be one oi lho principal
factors in the future prosperity of the
Ymir camp.
The strike on the Foghorn mine   i-
of the utmost importance to tlie Ymir
camp, as ii proves that that   property
bus very large reserves of   ore,    sullicient to insure it many years of   profitable operation.     Wu reported several weeks ago, a strike of   line   galena
ore, which was found on the    surf ice.
at a point nearly perpendicular above
iinotl.ei point, about 000 feel in  from
the portal of the long crosscut tunnel.
Systematic exploration in  the  tunnel
and drifts ileal this point has resulted
in the location "fa pay Ishoo',   at,    the
depth of some .100 feet below the surface, which it is practically certain, is
the same shoot as that uncovered    recently ou the surface.    Specimens   ol
ore from the two points,   the    surface
tjut and the drift 500 feet below,   are
so exactly similar that they cannot bo
told apart     Con Wollle, the manage1
reports that    the   strike    mado    tin
week, has disclosed from ten tt. fifteen
feet of clean    shipping    ore    of   good
