Chromium Mine To Be Started— Gold Shares Leap. j Manila—The Benguet Consolidated Mining company, the largest mining concern in the Philippines, | has signed a contract for the exploitation of extensive chromium deposits in the Province of Ambos Camarines and is planning an ex- ! penditure of $125.000 on the project. These are declared to be the only commercial chromium deposits un- ! der the American flag, although | army reservations in the Province of Zambales presumably are rich in ! Chromitc ores. The Benguet company is the largest gold producer in the Philippines and expects a profit of at least «,500,000 as a result of the recent price order, but former Judge John Haussermann, its president, said that all gold deposits were temporary and therefor believed the company was correct in expanding to other commercial ores. The Philippines are in the midst of the greatest boorn in mining stock ever experienced here. The Benguet company, which also operates at Balatoc, brings the highest price, it shares having risen from S cente less than 10 years ago to be- Uween $30 and $40. ¡ ./ Because of the large capital avail- j »ble, the Benguet company is ap- | preached with numerous propositions to operate other mining properties, and a rumor that Benguet is Interested is sufficient to skyrocket any stock.
