What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
FN DiALL CH ..„,t,oci.ty of _entails: RONICLE VOL. I. '2O LI' r'iit KENDALL, MONTANA, flARCH 25, 1902. No. t. IT IS NOW NMI READY. Progress of Work on the Big Ken- dall Cyanide Mill. Something About the Plant that Will Soon be Turning Out Golden Treasure. , A material fat:Mein_ Alm development of this great mining district will he the completion Red operation of the 300 -ton cyanide mill of the Kendall Miiiing Com- pany. This important and extensive enter- prise is nOide'iteatieg completion, and General Manager R. K. Neil announees that he expects the mill wily1714 e - ration by the first week in Aptil. Nearly all the material for construction is n w on the ground. and is rapidly being Put in piece. A large force of men are at work in the various departments of the buildings, and gratitying progress is be- ing made.'\ H. W. Fellows, the widely known electriciam, is superintending the putting in of all the electric apparatus. A detailed description of the mill will not be attempted at this time; but a few items of interest may be notellis The ettent iettebe- opera -tat by Met:M(107 the power beirg generated at the Horse Shoe Bar ranch, some five miles distant from the mill. At that point an extensive and complete plant has been installed, including a Snyder and Hughes pump of large capacity, a Pelton turbine wheel, etc. It may be noted that the penstock, which extends from the water ditch to the power house is six feet in diameter. Besides furnishing electric power, the plant will supply the water to be used in operating the mill . . It is also the plan of the company to furnish water and elect: icity for the town of Kendall. The main mill building—or crushing and leaching department—is 180 feet in leugth and 55 feet wide. Here are in- stalled tweke leaching tanks of 150 tons capacity each. There are two sump tanks, gold tanks and filter presses. Ad- joining the main structure is the refin- ing building, which, however, may not be completed before thirty days. Among the other buildings is one for the heating plant and another for the assay office. In the -construction of these buildings about 500,000 fret of lumber was used. The item of freight from the railroad to the mill site alone cats a considerable figure. There has been hauled in some- thing like 812,000 pounds of machinery, etc. This foots up over 400 tons. When completed the mill will repre- sent a large amount of invested capital, and it is hardly necessary to add that it will be a success, for the best skill has been brought into action in planning the details and in its construction. No difficulty whatever will be experi- enced in keeping the mill supplied with ore. Besides the immense bodies of ore already blocked out, development work is in progress and new measures of ore are being put in shape for extraction. A shaft has been sunk 200 feet and a drift extended southwesterly some 300 feet—all in ore. Drifting is now in.pro- gress northeasterly in the direction of the mill. Ae is well known to those fa- miliar with the Kendall property the ore body is of immense size, and there are alreasly several million dollars worth of ore exposed and ready for the mill. Not- withwanding the comparatively small amount of development work done the mine has proven itself to be the most valuable of all the mining holdings under the control of Messrs.

Ott another page of this paper the Kendall King Cyanide Gold Mining and Milling Company snakes an announce- ment that the investing public may con- sider. Its property lies close to the now famous Kendall mine, and it is the in- tention of the company to coin memo active development work at once. As this district is on the eve of a great min- ing excitement it is quite certain there is going to be big money mode in mining shares.

Kendall has one heavy bullion pro- ducer, le the Kinig-Bernes Company; the second will be that of the Kendall, a third will be the North Moccasin Com- pany. Three gold producers and divi- dend payers and all wilburNly ayear and a half of_aleYelepment work, is a record that is not often duplicated in the mining world. Anil this record may be added to before fall, for if the Abbey Company builds a mill, as is now the talk, it will centiliter take its place among the dividend payers. The work of constrittiting the Barnet' King mill wAS ii in last April, and it started up on ore the latter peel of September. It has been in continu- ous operation ever since. The mill cyanides about 3000 tons a month, and in the treatment of the conmeany's ore it ittxrepeetpeed it success. , 'Jnat what the bullion at put has been is known only to the management as the figures have never been made public. But it is safe to put the yield] et $700 or $800 a day. As the coat of mining and milling is only about $2.00 R ten, a laree margin of profit is left the company. The company's property is tinder bond for $1,000,000, end New York capitalists are now having the mine exptsrtesl. This work has been very thorough. Mr. Fred. Farish of Colorado !IRS been 'tempting time ore bodies for three weeks, and has riot vet finished hie work. Lest week P. Donahne, W. J. Rattle and William Rattle, all noted mine experts, visited] the property, and made a critical exam- ination. Neither of the gentlemen gave out an opinion for publiesition, hut they were most agreeably itnpreesed by the immense ore bodies exposred; by the economical manne- in which the ore can be extracted and milled. Their report will soon he filed. If the bond on the property is taken up, another mill will certainly be built. On the other hand, if E. W. King and his associates remain in control they will increase the milling facilities, and enhance the bullion output. Smith -Rickard. Mr. H.
