Whipp and Glenn are raising about 12 tons of ore per day with a windlass, most of which is of smelting grade. Just what the rock is running now is not known, as 12 carloads are now out that have not been settled for, but enough sylvanite is showing in the rock to warrant the lessees to continue shipping to the smelter.

The output from the Whipp and Glenn lease on the Lansing property of the Pinnacle company for the present week promises to be the heaviest since those miners first struck ore on the claim.
At least four carloads of ore and probably five, will be sent out from the mine. The ore body in the second level has been drifted on for a distance of about 26 feet; a cross-vein equally as good as to its mineral-bearing quality is also being encountered in these workings.
The ore-body in the breast of the drift now measures seven feet across and carries almost incredible values to one not acquainted with the richness of Pinnacle ore.
The main working shaft is being sunk as rapidly as three shifts can break rock, and the lessees estimate that they will be hoisting ore through it, at the outside, in 18 days.
The engine house has been completed and the finishing touches are being put on a fine two story ore house. This double-decked ore house has room for 75 tons and will be tested to its fullest capacity.
