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.

Close by a vein was recently uncovered that carries $30 in geld and a very high per centage of cop- per and somagalena. In the eatne.gulch another develqtanent is tinder - m - 4 that. testy result in the opentag uP Of a great body of cyanide ore. The gold -copper vein is on the Rine Bell claim, which was located last.

It was sunk on the vOn. arid ore taken out 'As work pro- gressed. It showed up rettoirkably Well and the owfiers' had goott reason' to be entlinsiastic. After going doe ri about twenty feet a drift was extended a few feet on the vein. In thigreinall swork over two hundred sacks of ore have 1.4en taken out and it is now piled tip on the (temp. It runs $30 in gold, and it car- ries a high per cent of copper. Some of the ore carries galena, and it will he an u .. . extra good smelting ore. Those who have seen itvdtclare it tot* the most likely ore of the kind yet found I: l e :his county. The ore taken out has n Racked and it will be• sent , to a. - melter for treatment. r • ;The work of iveleprnedt. ha been . depended for the time being, as the de [' where are,bbsily engaged on other,pro- [ se rty hiy ofi•ii in the vIciniti.

A five-staterp• will is now being built at a point but a few rode from the month of the tunnel. : It is expected the mill will be ready to crush ore by July 1. The mill and mine are to be connected by a track, so the ore can lie — darefred in cars direct from the working- tunnel.. Every huality is ,ffered for economical ruining and mill, ing of the ore. Libe4a1 sampling has shrjwn the oreu . to average. about $8 per ton, and there is apparently an alined.; ance of it. The tunnel enters the monnul taut from the bottom of the gulch, midi the mountain itself stands up well nigh perpendicular for a thousand feet. The owners of this property have held it for ytairs, and ; . t bey now enter upon the work of milling the ore with every as. nuance of success.
