Nothing: to Justify setting casing was uncovered. This is tho last of three wildcats drilled In the district to prospect a slight topographic high which parallels Mountain View field for a short distance.

JACKSON MOJAVK. Sept. 9,—From tho drift on Die east end of the 500-foot level in the Tropico mine near Rosamond, a crosscut is being run Into tho hanging- wall. This work, according to Mine Superintendent Cecil Burton, Is being done to contact ore bodies which (ire Indicated by recent development work on tho ninth level, where a largo quantity of good mill ore is had on both faces of the drift. Tho 500-foot level has boon closed up for a number of years, indications being that *ho previous operators suspended work because of a lack of ore to justify further development. On the west end of tlio 500, n drift Is being run to connect with (he shaft being sunk on the Kid claim for fhe purpose of providing a working outlet for tho west end of the mine. The Burtons have taken over all the operations on Tropico hill which were formerly held by J. S. Bagg. These include the Kid claim, the Homestake and the Antelope. As a result of the increased demands on their time, they have temporarily suspended operations on the Hematite on the Middles Buttes, and tho work has been shut down. Development work on the Bur- ton-BIanck lease on tho Middle Buttes is going ahead with «hlp- ments being made two or three times a week. ^^^^^"^^^^^^^^""^^^^"^^^^^•^^^^^^^^•^••^^^^^••••^P^^B^^^^^^^P^^^^B^B^BBPW^P^BIP^BWl^^^^^^B^^^^BWl^HP^^^^^^^^^B^BIH^^^^^^^^w^^^^ COMPLETE SURVEY F LAVA DM J ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^T ' Geologists Complete First Comprehensive Study of National Lava Beds (By JOHN D.
