KNEW IT WAS PLATINUM.
But Until Recently There hfxs
Been no Market.
In your last Issue speaking of plati
num in tho minis of this jsirtion of
the country you say :
"For a number of years past
the placer miner of the west
ern Josephine districts have been
finiling a quantity of an unknown
metal In their sluices at clean-up
time. The mutal was mind with the
black snnd and I lie miners being
ignorant of its identity and value throw
it from their sluices. "
For 22 years we have been finding
considerable quantities of platinum in
our annual cleun-ups ami tint without
making uuy sjiociiilj effort to catch it ;
anil all of that time we knew that it
was platinum. I'ntil recent years
there was no market for it. About l-i
years ago wo sent about nine ounces
of it to Han Francisco, never receiving
a cent for it. They did no tonsider
the matter of sufficient iiiiHirtanee to

WORKING MINE TAILINGS.
Cyaniding Plant In Successful Op-'
eration at Ashland.
Tho cyanide plant established at
the plant of Ashland quartz mill
damp by Kichuxd liros. Is gan making
the tirst run IJec. l.'i. last and a clean
op was made last week with results
quito satisfactory to the owners.
I'ho firm is composed of C Pond und
H. J. Kichurds, who have followed
the business ofcyaniding in Montana
and Nevada for several years. This
plant in Ashland is of 15 tons daily
capacity and well equipped to do
good work. They tbippel it here
from Indian Creek, Siskiyou county,
w hero they operated all summer on
the tailings of the Franklin mill.
The Franklin mill ran on rock from
the Bonanza and Grizly mini-Hand
also milled a good deal of custom rock
in tho district. There were no more
dry tailings available and the weather
was nnsuited over there for further
cyaniding os-rations, so Richard lircs.
decided to move to Ashland where
they had purchased the mill tailings
of the Oregon and Montreal Gold
Mining Co., who have been operating
the Ashland mine. The pile of tail
ings is estimated at about 1500 tons
and will afford the plant about a five
months' run. The first tailings from
the Ashland mine which were, re
duced by a cyanide plant a few years
ago were rich and made some money
for the operators. The tailings of re
cent years havo not been thought to
be espeeilly valuable us ,it was under
stood the milling was very close but
Richard liros. find good values in
gold as far us their investigotions have
gone. The best tailings are under
stood to bo the product of the milling
preceding the era of Ihe Oregon mid
Clean ups will be made about i very
two weeks. The gent lemon are their
own otsrators, chemists ami work

A PROMISING PROPOSITION
Hall M ines on Grave Creek Make
The quartz claims in the Grave
creek district owned by John and
George Hull of GrunU Pass, though
little developed, are among the most
promising of the Josephine comity
projxTties. The property consists of
live claims.on which mi option to pur
chase for fj.i.non is held by Philadel
phia parties. One of the ledges shows
width of several feet and gives good
values throughout. Some of the rot k
obtained is enormously rich. The
property lies in tho head of Jordan
gulch, which has been placer mined
since the early days mid has produced
i large amount of gold. Old time
placer miners tell of the finding of a
luarlz boulder near the head of the
gulch which produced $.VH)( from live
sacks ol ore. Kll'orts to lind the ledge
from which it had apparently broken,
were fruitbss This property is in
the same district as the famous Green
