To^ay Utah at Boston was quieter but strong, in spite ot irregular quotations from London. The price touched 4S% highest and 48 lowest, closing- at 4~'/2- The Boston Commercial Bulletin, in an article 011 Utah, says: "The cause of the upward movement i8 thu consummation, of a. deal with the Standard Oil people by which Utah will be part of a big copper combination. The Utah mine is a good one; the Bulletin has favored the property ever since it was brought out at Boston, two years ago, at 5. The mine is now opened up and developed several years ahead; so that when the smelter starts, in June or July, it can be continuously supplied with ore, and the mine still kept opened up ahead. The ore has been i'ound to run between S per cent and 22 per cent; but. calling- it an average of only 10 per cent, the mine is a property is :H5-8 acroM, The vein, or ore body, varies ill, j but shows at one point l.°0 l'e<.'t wick 1 , measuring- horizontally. The strike of this vein is about 70 degrees east, '."lie dip is about 45 degrees to the north, '.'.'he Oi'f;'from the surface to water level is an oxidized ore consisting of quartz / and silicious material, iron-stained and decomposed. This oxidized ore contains about 88 per cent silica. S> pp.r cent iron, and 0.15 per cent copper (no is;\f\ or zinc). All the oxidized ore carrion gold and siKvr, tho principal value being gold, and the gold varying from j $1.50 to $20 per ton. Bands of rich ore j assaying over $300 occur in this oxidized body. The gold is found in a very 1 fine form—too! line to catch by ordinary amalgamation, Some of the yold is too coarse to be dissolved by cyanide solution in sixty hours. The 1 silver ave-r- s to two and one- one, besides which the ore has ! f-,^f ounc^'^nd' is found -luitc u-ii- carried sufficient gold and silver to pay J^Vregardl^ ™» water level varies from ItiO foet to 250 feet below the surface. Below the water level or horizon the ore is a sulphide of iron and c.ipper, carrying gold and silver also. There has alrsaJy been ' all the smelting and mining expenses. Boston Consolidated sold today at 17 and closed at 14 to 15. The public attention which has been paid to the Utah and Boston properties may render interesting some of the latest details with, reference to their position. The Utah Consolidated gold mines has a capital of £300,000 in II shares, and all aj-e- issued and fully paid. The board consists- of Messrs j ID. Dudley Ryder, Frank L. Gardner A P. B.. Loftus, H. H. Campbell, J.. F. A. Clark, T. B. Casey, and Samuel Newhouse, the last-named being the managing director. It is understood, however that the acquisition of the control by the Standard Oil group will result in the disappearance of the London board and . built a cyanide and amalgamation mill !. that ha.s a. capacity of 3uO tons per day. At the time that this was constructed the baai-d had no idea that there was anything in the mine but oxidized ores. Upon further developing the property, however, there .was f-penecl up a l>-jcly of copper sulphides that has entirely changed the valuo of the property, as the oxidized ores, -which had been opened up were insigniilcant in comparison with the great bodies of sul- phides which we have put in view. This necessitated the erection of a smelter, as although during the the transfer of the directorial manage-I oi: developing these sulphide bodies the one continuous body." The cross-section made through the Copper Center and Jubilee tunnels allows a continuous body of low-grade ore from the mouth of the Copper Center tunnel ..entirely through the hill to the north side line. The relative positions of the different workings already made seem to prove that . it is a continuous body. The distance ! Dr. Sanden's Electric Belt is | never sold in drug stores nor by traveling agent?; only at our office. . across the body is about feet. Developments lengthwise and other workings indicate that the body is continuous for 4000 feet—that is, 2000 feet on each side of the Copper Center tunnel. The average thickness of this ore developed to the level of the Copper Center tunnel is over 500 feet. Assuming only 2000 feet along the vein—that is, 1000 feet on each side of the Copper Center tunnel—and with the above figures, the officials claim to have a body 2000 feet long, 3500 feet wide (or across the formation;, and 500 feet deep or 3.500,000,000 cubic feet. Allowing 12 cubic feet, in place, to ; the ton (this i_s exceedingly liberal) we have 2B1.666 - f>66_ tons. This ore body assays from O.,i. per cent to. 2.5 per cent copper Near the surface .the copper has been leached, and good values are not obtained until a depth of no feet-or JOO teet js reached. Concentration tests nave oeen made in a 10-stamp mill where the crushing was done by stamps. There is no device in the mill for working the slimes, which were rat Her excessive, because the- crushing , ^\as done by stamps; and, there being ' device, the co the slin device, the copper in slimes was a total loss. However, a large quantity of the slimes were collected m- some tanks and the mill stopped and the slimes run over a Wj'I- irey table by themselves. The results aie reported to have shown consider- Ably over 50 per cent of a saving on silnles > a « d * ^ alleged that a mm ,> a arti, \ • r Bavi "S could be made after adjusting- a .ll parts- of the mill satis- icLcton ty. ° ut °f 'account- the slimes b, it is .claimed that a saving of over faS per cent of the copper was made. When the experiment on the is no the merit' of the property aw a copper mine, the charg-os. for tiie smtOting were so excessive and the capacity of the existing smelters so mui-h less than the requirements of the mi no that it was decided that the vast.' ore body opened up, together with all indications which have pointed to ihf present developments as being- simply a, very small percentage of wiitit is before ihe company, warranted the company in erecting' and operating its own smelter. This is now in the process of construction. The smelting works, when completed, will consist of sampling worhs. four calciners, three reverberatory furnaces, and. one converter, together with necessary surface improvements, office building, assay oJliceu, etc. It will, be completed and in opeation. about June :i, 3890, and,will have a capacity of 200 tons per day. When the property was first purchased there had been opened -:p approximately 3600 feet of • tunnels and drifts; but only 2400 feet of this work was done in such places and manner as to be available in (he further development' of the property, and almost all 'of this 2400 feet had to be' timbered and repaired before we could make any advance at these points. On December ], 3838. the development work had been so far forward that at that date the total number of feet of tunnels, crosscuts, .winzes and so forth amounted to 9800,' showing practically 7400 feet of development work 'done since the company took possession. The development work in the mine already amounts to about 10,000 feet in tunnels, crosscut's, winzes and raises; the railroad station, about two miles and a half distant, is some 1100 feet below the mouth of tunnel No, 6. The sulphide ore is principally a sulphide of iron and copper carrying gold and silver. The total number of tons (dry weight; that were shipped to- the Germania smelter amounted to..4174, and the statement received from them gave the result" of 12.09 per cent copper. 2.78 ounces silver and $4.22 gold per ton. .The chairman stated that the company had on | hand in. the iron bins at the mine about 1000 tons from the same .source which, assays about 9 per cent copper, 2.25 ounces silver and $2.50 in gold.. They nad also, he said,.''about 6000 tons in dumps.of No. 4, No. 5 and No. G tunnels, which assay about ,5 per cent copper, two ounces silver and 52.20 in gold. All the above ore is. fronr development I work, and a/general average of this ore j slimes are considered, "there ,„ ilu question whatever" that ' an averag" saving of over 75 per cent of the copper m cms ore can be secured.
