"Ahitjli itrada matte in may to tie-1
core from nickel ores, hut the refining
process, by which the metal is made
available for commercial uses, liai

the past has been to reline with

Superior uicknl-coppcr mine near the

merit of the International company,
which has had the only nickel tellnnry

the purpose of adopting electric pro-
censes in preference to clicuiicalri.
"Nickel being a low-grade metal
the uicessity of making it marketable
near the mine is apparent. If electric
reflniug is possible, using a less ex

process, there is no reason why a

properties there. If the matte from
the Oregon properties wero baudlsd
in conjunction with the product from

there should be sufficient business to
