OF UNITED STATES
In the oiiit statement given out by
the United State geological survey
nnd the hurra u of the mint, tho vnluo
of new gold ndded to the home sup
ply from mills and smelturs operating
on domestic ores (including those of
Alnnka. the l'hiliiunncs nnd I'ortoj
Hieo) in 11)15 was $08,801,100. This
shows the substantial increase of
H3rn.H00 over the output of .ffll,
531,800 in lflM, nnd was within
$"82,:I00 of the record production of
SOiyi'IVlOO in 1009.
The gold mining industry wns gen
erally prospcious ngnin in liMiT, ft"8-
nnfiMm In rii.tirna nniimilrtl liv H. D.
McCnskev. of the United States ceo-i
logical survey, from preliminary rcfek
ports received from the mir.es. Ksti
mates made from these figures, which
represent ores sold or treated during
the year, as distinguished from the
metal netitnlly produced, show that
the output wns even higher, and thnt
it npproncbed, if it did not actually
pass, tho $ 100,000,000 mark; but
some of the ore nnd concentrate pro
duced from the mines and mills can
not be studied until 1010, and tho
refined gold did not become nvuilnblo
for consumption in 11)15.
An inerenso in the yield of gold is
indicated by the mine returns from
every important gold mining slate nnd
a decrease is reported only from
Washington, while the output of Idaho
remains tho same. Tho principal in
creases wero nenrlv !?2,f)00,000 in
Colorado, over $2,200,000 in Califor
nia, over $1,100,000 in Alaskn, over
$800,000 in Montnnn, nearly $(!.r)0,000
in Utah, over $ 180,000 in Nevada, nnd
over $300,000 in New Mexico. Smaller
increases were reported from Oregon,
South Dakota and Arizona.
California ilio l'lit
California retained first rank in
1015, with an output of about $23,
000,000, nnd wns followed by Colo
rado, with over $22,000,000; Alaska,
with nearly $17,000,000; . Nevada,
with nearly $12,000,000; South Da
kota, with over $7,000,000; Montana,
with nearly $5,000,000; Arironn, with
over $1,000,000; Utah, with ovor
$3,500,000; Oregon, with nearly
$2,000,000; New Mexico, with nearly
$l,f00,000, and Idaho nnd tho Phil
ippine, with about $1,200,000 each.
In California both deep mining nnd
dredging for gold have been notivo,
and the gold output wns tho largest
in thirty-two jonrs, nnd, if one year
only bo excepted, the luigcxt in over
half a century. In Colorado the out
put from Cripplo creek nlono in
creased by over $1,500,000, nnd this
camp wns more prosperous thnn for
several yours, jho larger cyanida
tion plants were active, and the out
put of rich ore from tho Crcsson mine
wns notably large. An increnscd
yield of gold also enme from I.nko
county (Londville) and many other
enmities. Jn Alaska gold mining wns
generally prosperous, though there
was a slightly decreased placer out
put, principally from some of tho Yu
kon camps nnd from dredging in dis
trict on Sown rd Peninsula, nnd n
largely increased gold-lode pioduc-
tion, principally I mm the Juneau re-
gion, whero further considerable in
creases are expected.
Nevada Output liifivnscri
Nevada mines increased their total '
output about I per cent, the hulk of
thu gold coining from fioldticld audi
Tonopab. The production fiom the
Seven Trough nnd National district j
increased, but the yield tiom Church-1
ill county vwik somewhat lc-. In
South Dakota tho great Hoiiie-t.ikc'
mines and mills were coiitinnou-.lv
active nnd maintained their l.n-i'
annual output. The Golden liVwurd,!
.Mogul, Weliancc, Trojan and other
important cynuidatioii nnlU added to
the production. In Montana the gold
output inereoned ovei 20 per cent
from di edging nt Alder Oulch tiom
tiiici'oiit. ores, especmiiv in r rgus
county, nnd generally from the cop
per and ziuo ore- of Iluttc. In All- '
zona the production from cvcrnl ot
the lurgc-t gold mine decreased, but ,
the yield at gold lloiu cuppei oc-j
increased, nnd the net rc-ult was a
small increase for the state .is ,i

as has been tho custom in tho past.
This plan is to give tho Mcdford inns
