NEWS AND GOSSIP OF THE MINING WORLD
THE SLATE CREEK MINES
Eureka Group Sold to C. D. Lane of
Seattle, June 14. Newt cornea from
Anacot tea that work will be resumed
on a large scale cn the Eureka group of
mines In the Slat Creek mining oaiup,
which now belong to C. D. Lane, a
millionaire mining operator of Califor
nia. The final transfer to Mr. Lane
was effected in Ana cor tea few days
ago. This is the property that some
years ago was under bond to Colonel
Hart for Montana parties. After spend
ing upward of $50,000 they allowed
ther bond to lapse, but the owners,
having faith in ther property, continued
working it nntil about two years ago,
when a bond waa made to Mr. Lane.
Alaaaat Itaadv far Oswratloa.
The property is nearly ready for oper-
ation. The tramway between the mine
and the stamp mill must be finished.
The mill has 10 stamps of 1,100 pounds
each and ia substantisUy constructed.
The property has a saw and shingle
mill and electric light plant. The
stamp mill was completed last fall and
found to work perfectly.
It is the intention to pnt in a roast
ing furnace as soon as supplies can be
shipped in this summer, to treat all
ores on the ground, instead ot shipping
concentrates. People who know the
property, say that it will develop into
a big mine.
TWO REPUBLIC MINES.
Active Wark tha Qalla aad the
Republic, June 14. Work is ac-
tt ve on the Quilp mine. The new ma-;
cnineiy is giving satisiaotion. rwo
drills are making about five feet per
day. The compressed air hoist is work- j
ing smootniy at tne winxe ana gooa
progress will now be made in gutting
out the ore for shipping. The shaft
will be extended to the 300-foot level
before cross cutting. The ledge en
countered on this property has in
creased greater in width in proportion
to depth obtained in sinking than any
mine in the camp. In the tunnel it
measured 26 feet, at the 60-foot level
it was 80 feet wide, and at the 100-foot
level it waa between 90 and 100 feet in
idth. This is the largest body ore in
tha camp and it is hard and clean.
At the 50-foot level there ia 30 feet of
ore that will average $18 per ton. In
the lower levels the values are higher
somewhat. The new seven-drill com
pressor is in operation and the com
pany will be in a position to ship 200
tons of ore a day for an indefinite
period, if necessary. More men have j
been put to work stoping in the tunnel

lne survey has been completed for
the steam tram to be constructed up
the gulch, connecting the mines in the j
vicinity mr .nipping 10 am mum. t
The Quilp will furnish the new Repub
lic mill with at least 100 tons a day.
North of the Trade Dollar and east of
the Ben Hur is the Knob Hill, a prop
erty supposed to be valuable. A cross
cut tunnel has been extended in the
hill 540 feet, where the ledge was
struck, and the indications are now
that they have a fine property. A shaft
was sunk at the first where the vein
was found in place and an average ot
values obtained of $30 per ton at the
10-foot level. The tunnel level is 850
feet from the surface and there are now
three feet of fine looking quarts that
should run even higher than in the
shaft. A drift north and south has
been started on the ledge.
Good WahlB(toa Miaa.
Spokane, June 14. A contract has
been let for sinking a 100-foot shaft on
the Rebecca and running 125 feet of
tunnel on the Rebecca extension.
These claims are owned by fipoakne
and Cheney parties. About 600 tons
ot ore are already on the dump and it
averages about $45 to the ton. Some
assays run aa high as $200, mostly cop
per. The Rebecca and Rebecca exten
sion are located near the Columbia
river, about 18 miles from Keller,

Grangeville, Idaho, June 14. A new
mining district has been organized
across Salmon river from this place,
called the Crooks Corrall district. The
boundaries of the new district are as
follows: Commencing at the head of
Race creek, thence to Euake river,
thence to the summit of the divide at
the Larry Ott saddle (between Snake
and Salmon rivers), thence along the
divide to place of beginning.

Victoria, B. C., June 14. The first
crowd of Klondikers this season arrived
by the steamer Amur Saturday. They
report that 200 miners have reached
Skagway. Six steamers have passed
up the river.
The gold output is estimated by Daw-
ion papers at $18,000,000. News is
given of a stampede to the Koyukuk
and to Sulphur creek, gravel being
found in the old channel which goes 60
cents to the pan. A nugget weighing
77 ounces was found on Chee Chako.

F. M. Smith, who has been assisting
Joseph Shepherd in prospecting a ledue

that he and his partner took out a small
pocket last week from which they real

Smith says the pocket is not by any
means exhausted. He says the pocket
may prove to be a large one, as the
same character of rock continues.
They will lose no time in going
down on the vein, which varies in sis
from one to four feet and all sufficient
ly mineralised to make it a fine paying
proposition. The quarts ia blue and

free gold. The walls are granite and
