THE SUMPTER MINER
QUEBEC MOUNTAIN TUNNEL.
0. R. & N. CO.
One Ledge Cut 360 Feet In Air Com
pressor Plant Ordered.
The Scandla Mining and Tunnel com
pany, consolidated, near Alamo, who are
running the big tunnel on Quebec hill,
are Retting ready to put in a compressor
and drill and expect to have it In run
ning order within the next sixty days.
The Aldrln Tunnel, which Is owned by
this company, C. R. Aldrln, manager, is
a 3ooofoot tunnel right and gains a depth
of 1 200 feet on five good ledges opened up
In front of the tunnel. One 6-foot ledge
has already been cut at a distance of 360
feet, gaining a depth of 200 feet.
It has been known for many years that
there are tine gold bearing ledges crossing
Quebec hill in a northeasterly direction,
and some of these were opened up on
the surface at various depths and giving
assays fiom $2 to 5300 per ton. Hut no
legitimate effort was ever made to make a
mine of these properties until this com
pany secured the tunnel right.
This company with a guaranteed capi
tal of 5150,000 to complete this 7x7 tunnel,
will make one of the largest mining enter
prises in this section of the country. The
people w ho are backing and controlling
this enterprise are men of experience in
the mining business, and before they con
cluded to go into this tunnel on a large
scale, they did enough development work
on their claims to warrant the outlay of
this large sum. These people are not
"finding" a mine, they are "making"
The Sc.-mdlu Gold Mining and Milling
company and the Aldrln Tunnel company
were consolidated last October. A few
more enterprises of this character will
make this district surrounding Granite
the largest mining center in the west.
The Aldrln tunnel
right is located ope
mile west of Alamo
and about one mile
south of the Red
Hoy mine. Granite
