moving successfuly on.
It is no small task to open up
and develop a mine and bring it to
a dividend paying basis, this great
achievement is being accomplished
as last as the conditions will war
rant, by the management of the
Vesuvius mine. We predict a
great future for this mine.
We passed over the new wagon
road to the Oregon-Coloiado mines,
four miles to the southeast over as
good a road as we saw in the dis
trict. We visited tho upper work
ings of this property, also the long
tunnel on the Confidence claim,
and found ore on the dump and in
the tunnels in great abundance,
thousands of f et of tunnel work has
been done on this property and
there is n sufficient quantity of ore
mined and in evidence in the mine
to warrant the establishment of a
big plant at this excellent property.
We took several fine specimens
of ore from the tun
nel aud could get it in fifty or more
places in the tunnel. Nearly all
the work done has been in the ore
