Sh* l« near) y hr*fce. * * • VI T WENT through the mine that •*- afternoon with Archie Trask, and the first thing I did was take chip samples across the working faces in each level. A chip sample is what it sounds like: you start at one side of the vein with a hammer ;md you work your way across, the chips Calling into your canvas sample bag as you go. You mix them all together, grind them up, and you have a pretty fair average for the vein. In this case I had to be extra .careful because Ihe real paystreak was a narrow band six inches wide, next the footwall. The rest of the vein was low-grade, flecked here and there with chaleopyrite but probably not worth the cost of mining if it had been by itself. But that payslreak, what there was of it, was a beautiful thing— real high-grade, with plenty of bornite and chatcocile. My lob was to be sure 1 didn't take too much and throw oft the average. Trask was with me and he rattled off figures;. "Two dollars a ton across 3 *& feet, S25 a ton across six inches.

What Cory forgets is thai in the old days that streak ol high-grade was wider." * • • TF/HEN we'd finished we took the bags over to the assay shed, where Trask introduced me to a youngster named Rige?. 1 asked Riggs a few questions and he sreetned to know his stuff. He thought he could give me the results by noon tomorrow. "Well." I said to Trask, "thanks for your help.

The crews were mrprised to see me back so soon, bul not greatly—miners think all engineers are slightly nuts. 1 took four new sets of samples, one from each face, tied the bags and pul them in the rumble ol Cory's convertible. That evening I'd drive Cory to Driscoe, 20 miles away, where 1 could send out Ihe 1*5 by express on the Pacific Northern. Not that I didn't trust Riggs. 11 was just a matter of principle. Then I went to eat. • * # HE road between Dark Angel and Driscoe would be called a trail in any other part of the country, so we didn't talk much on the way. Cory sat outside while I went into the station, prepaid Ihe charges and wrote out shipping tags. Then T went back outside, Got the stuff ovil of the rumbte and carried it over to the counter. I asked the agent where the nearest phone was and he pointed to an old-fashioned party-line affair in a corner. I cranked the handle, and you could 1 hear receivers being lifted all the way up the valley. KtnalJy I got 'through to Efne at her home, "I'm sending some stuff in," I said, "Copper, gold and silver.
