ABOUT BARREN ZONES.
Theory Thai Values Are Btnealh
In mliilnc nil ounce of iirnvrd f.ict is

arc many lliL'orict .is ei unpioved.
There :irr,too, many Miltanli il tacts, gdi
cf .illy known now, tli.it were nine tin
proved theories. One ol those iheonrs,
concerilinn li.itren 'tors, Is liist lieniililnn
no t- -. t . 1 1 ) 1 1 -. 1 1 c d ffiit. Il is the old pmhlem
ill a new phasf, "J mines no itinwi?"
In the majoiily ol cases, s.iss the Min
ini; I'ress, Iheie ii'ines .1 time in the de
velopment of n mine when ones barren
of .'ill ores ;irc cncoiiliteted. I Ins gener

ulicn what limy le stled Hie t nn.inci,t
water Itvrl Is leached, .ind continues
through uli.it iwiv similarly lie termed the
rlil) .Hid HiiA' water line.
I he theory here comes In th.it through
the seasons this permanent water line
rUes and tectdrs, sometimes in I line's
countless neons being higher or lower
than at otlleis, the ore becoming decom
posed and the ores being leached out, new
ore bodies meanwhile tunning containing
no metallic value, occasioning a barien
one. Another theory takes up the
solving of inelals by hot alkaline w
carbonic add bring present, which, meet
tn K illi volcanic passes from below,
would precipitate metals "along the lines
ol least irsistaiice," thus occasioning bai
reu ones, the character of the rock
through which the vein hi its entirely
passed," not being throughout its entire
r.xleiit'fnvorahle to the deposition of Die.
I he possession of sullicient nerve and
money' has demonstrated the existence of
paliig -ore 'bodies below such barren
zones. 'NWhatever Ihe i.iuse, the
that such barren ones actually exist has V
