Alleged Important Discovery
in Smelting Copper.
From tho S. Y. llultettn of Aiir. VUtli.)
We Inn u been shown u sneolinen ol clay
like subtmice which Is called tin hydratid
sillicate of cadmium. This substance. If It
po?-esnn Ire peculiar properties for fluxing
metals which are claimed for It by lt dis
cover, bids fair to create a revolution in Ihu
art of copper-smelting, nnd will enable Cal
ifornia to export the puru metal Instead of
tliu ores. This slllicalc of cadmium was
discovered on n ranch In Contra Costa
county by James T. McDoitgall, who
brought sdinn of It to this cily to experi
ment on for I lie purpose of exlractliig Hie
Cadmium, but found great dllllcully In do
hit: so without going to Ion great cxpeicc to
makii it prolltablu lo work. William Nlel,
a copper-smilli. (who Is nlo n, practical
chemist and mlnerologlst,) on who- preml
res Mr. MoDougall was experiiueiitiuir. was
impressed with tlm Men that thu substance
might bu useful for fluxing metals, and on
thu ultempts to extract cadmium failing,
he. at the solicitation of Mr. McDougrill,
made various trials with it lit ennectlou
with other nnteilals. In these trials Mr.
Kiel succeeded in making what he claims to
b ihu best llux known for smelting copper.
The great value of tlilu discoveiv, lie says,
lies in the fact that in one smelling with
llux. copper can bu obtiitteil of fiom UK to
D!) per cent, purity, while the icsMiim, com
posed of other tn"lals und impurities, con
tains but a lucre trace of copper in it.
Thee tests have been made with every de
scription of copper ore. ovides, sulphates,
or whatever form in which copper has In cu
found In California, Nevada, or Colorado.
In over two bundled nssays made by Mr.
Nlel, It Is stated llmt every one has been
successful in extracting thu etitiru copper
which was in thu ore.
When thi" process Is compared with the
mot approved processes In use eK'whero
to fiip'H and purify cupper, the value of the
alleged discovery can hardly bo over-estimated.
Ity tlin'Swainseii (Wales) process
tho richest of copper ores have to be smelt
ed four times, while tho poorer grades of
ore hiivu to undergo from eight to twelve
diftVreut smelting and other processes, be
fore It becomes puru enough for commer
cial uses. The high freights, sincltln,'. nnd
other charges upon shipments of copper ore
to foreign ports; the long delay In receiv
ing relurns, H)),i t lie blub rates of Interest
charged upon ndvanccs, combined, form a
large sum which Is in favor of smelting
here; mill this new (lux. If It in cxtcnMvu
practice proves nil that W claimed for it,
will soon cauo all our copp'T ores to bo
smelted before exportation. This in tinu
will stimulate mauufacliircis of copner for
cummcic'ul iims. and tlm whole will open
an extensive mid new fluid for prolltablu la
bor for our people.
Then.' Is another ndvuiitngn claimed for
this dUrovcry, which It is said will almost
pay ull tho expenses of smeltlnc. The slag
arising from thu llux Is ol u hard, tenacious
and glassy nature, but of beaittilul colors,
according to thu combination of minerals In
the ore sue'lted. This slag can be made In
to water pipes, floor tiles, dour knobs nod
many articles for which it Is well adapted,
and be sold nt remunerative prices. Jtcau
also bo UM'd for receptacles for cold chemi
cal processes, as It Is said to be untiU'ected
by nohR Tho supply ol ore cadmium is
said lo ho inexhaustible, Ihu vein being Oil
feet thick, and has been traced on the sur
face over l.OOU feet in length. The mine Is
owned jointly by Ihu discoverer, Mr. Mc
Doitgall, mid thu ranch proptletor, but u
sale Is now pending to u company, most of
Ihu shareholdeis In which are interested in
the various copper mines ol this Stale and
Colorado Territory. Tho sum of SlfiOl)
is being cxp1 ndfd to make trial of this fluv
on u large scale, mid If thu result proves ull
that Is claimed, extensive smelting worki
will be erected on thu shores of thu bay,
somewhere in llm vicinity of this city. Al
though experiments have only been mndu
with copper ores, it Is believed that this
llux. Willi some few changes. Is erjually well
adapted for gold and silver smelling,
