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.

4 4 ( v; That is what the Kendall Mine H3S to Show. A Wonderful Ore Development, and it is Increasing in Size—A Few Interesting Facts. The Kendall mine, which ie part of the property here under bond to a pow- erful eastern syndicate for eevertityall- - Trolidrillaric has blocked out, ready for milling, nearly, if nqi!fully, one million tons of ore. • This is not the guess -work statement of in enthusiast with A pilasi011 for big figures, but the careful estimate of it -con- servative man—H. H. Lang, the super- iutendent of the property. Startling as seems the estimate at first glance, the figures evidently harmonize with the actual existing facts as revealed upon an inspection of the property. On the main tunnel level en idea may be gained of the stupendous ore body that has already been opened up in the mine. This tun- nel runs along into the ore measures at great length, and on every hand.,are evi- dences of the exact nature of the ore de- posit. The extraction of hundreds of tons of ore has left great chambers that heavily timbered. As fast as thets e broken down and hauled away the huge sets of timbers are put in place, till here and there the interior of the mine re- sembles a Wrest of treesdemuled of their foliage. On this tunnel level the vein is oue hundred and forty feet wide, to deal in rough figures, and it is all milling one. Below this level the' development work has shown it to be no lees stupendous, and overhead to the wince, at 'Pest one hundred feet, its proportions equal the figures named. The mine is being de- veloped with the greatest skill, and with the view of facilitating work and insur- ing...the-safety sad corn fort -- nrro proyes. Being what is known as a dry mine, when the . timbers are ince in place there is little evidence of the crushing process, so noticeable in_many mines that are wet and where a large amount of timbering is necessary. The development work so far done in the Kendall mine :las exposed an enor- mous body of ore. There is now blocked out, ready .for extraction, at least one million tons of ore. As stated above this is 'an estimate by the superintend- ent. In referring to the early develop- ment work done in the mine that official states that 200,000 tons of ore was ex- posed at a cost of about $5000. The work consisted of running a tunn41 into the ore and making a few crosscuts. Such rich results from that amount of cost has never before been equaled in mining. The same authority as quoted above de- clares the ore in sight in the Kendall mine will undoubtedly assay $8 per ton. With the 'present capacity of the mill— three hundred tons per day—it will re- quite many years to exhaust the visible supply of ore in the mine. But as fast as the ore is extracted new bodies are opened up to take its' place; aud there are no signs of working the mine out. At the present time there are some three thousand tons of ore broken down in the mine and held as a reserve for bad KENDALL CHRONICLE. 1 he North Moccasins Have Yielded Up Their Thou , auds and Have Millions Lett for Honest loll VOL.

The weather so far this winter has not seriously inter- fered with ore extraction from the open cuts. Wet, ore can not be put through the mill, so it is essential that there be, during the winter season, a reserve of dry ore to draw from. To supply timbers for the Kendall is in itself no small item. To keep up to the demand the company employs a large force on that work. At present the supply on hand equals 100,000 feet. Each ton of ore taken from the mine leaves a considerable hole. For instance,' the extraction of three hundred tons—a day's run—leaves a space measuring,, say 10x10x30 feet. So much for static- onteni1nwtfle - tig about the mill is working in good order. The ponderous, new crasher is running all right and the water and ele , tric plants are giving full satisfaction. In referring to Water, it may be adffed that it req4ree on an average 100,000 gallons a day to supply the mill. PERSONAL MENTION. IL N. Clingen has returned from his eastern trip.
