  There is no doubt that some exceedingly good stuff is coming out of Cripple Creek mines.
  On the Last Dollar mine the estimated output for November is from 20 to 25 tons per ton, and 1,000 tons of low grade, running from $7 to $10 per ton.
  From a number of other mines comes equally satisfactory reports.

  The lessees on this claim have only about five days to work, the output during the year having been 60 tons a day. This property was one of the 1895 shippers and the lessees have done well on the property; the bonded price was 175,000, the present owners, Messrs. Eiler of the Colorado Smelting Comnany, Pueblo, with Messrs. Dickson
& Cadman of Denver, being the purchasers at $100,000.

  Since it came in the hands of the owners this mine has been actively worked. Three steam hoists are running, but the owners contemplate closing one temporarily.
  A very important strike was made in the Dickson shaft this week. The mine employs 70 men. The lessees shipped over $168,000 net in less than six months from this property above the 200-ft. level.

  Manager Waldron on the Last Dollar closed an eleven car shipment yesterday. One car was very high grade mineral and it will be surprising if it does not net $2,000 to the ton.

Page: 2 [Mines and Notes]: Last Dollar Strike

  The showing being made at this time upon the phenomenal strip in the 1,050-foot level of the Last Dollar mine at Victor is of such a remarkable nature that the company has determined to sink its main shaft another 100 feet, making the total depth 1,150 feet.
  The reason why more is not known about this wonderful strike is the fact that the company is a close corporation. It is known, however, that the rich ore contains slipt of sylvanite of unheard of richness. A mining expert who examined the property saw silver of sylvanite eighteen inches long and ninety per cent metallic.
  This is the highest record for the Cripple Creek district.

  A strike of sulphide ore is reported in the 1,250-ft. level. It is said to be one of the richest strikes ever made in the district, but sufficient work has not been done to determine what it will amount to.
  Charles Walden is in charge.

   One of the most important strikes in the district was made Sunday night last, when a 20 inch vein of iron sulphide ore was opened in the 1250 foot level of the Last Dollar mine.
  This is the first strike in the district of iron gold values. The ore averages 42 ounces of gold to the ton, besides 50 to 100 ounces of silver, and is well up in copper.

  This Bull hill mine has a new sampling plant that means a considerable saving to the company; also a new washing machine.
There are about 50 men now working in the mine, and the output is about 40 tons daily of 1,5 oz. ore.
  About two years ago sinking stopped on account of water at a depth of 1,240 ft. Sinking will soon be resumed, as the water has fallen.

  The Last Dollar mine located on Bull hill, sent out during the past month over 800 tons of ore, every pound of which is smelting grade. The ore was broken in drifts extending from every level from the 100 foot point down to 1200 feet. It has just been made public that this mine recently made some shipments of exceptionally high grade ore. One carload was settled for at the rate of $1960 per ton or $39,200 for the lot.
  Two other cars are said to have returned $48,000. This ore was uncovered at the bottom of the main shaft which is 1250 feet in depth.
  The mine is closely guarded, which is indication enough that something better than low grade ore is being mined.

  What will probably be the greatest drilling contest ever held in this state has been decided upon, and the manufacturers of the following machine drills will enter:
  • Shaw
  • Waugh
  • Murphy
  • McFarland
  • Sullivan
  • Traylor
  • Hardsogg
  • Jones
  The contest is for the purpose of testing the merit of the different makes of drills, both as to power and the durability of the steel, and will last 14 days.
  The machines are to be operated at the Last Dollar mine, on Bull hill.

  A 50-ton shipment of smelting grade ore was made last week from the Last Dollar mine, on Bull hill, under lease to the Western Investment Co. The ore was mined between the 500 and 700 levels, where the vein is of fair size. A large force is employed at the mine, and a large amount of development work is going on.
  The leasing company expects to show a big tonnage at the closing of the month. Improvements on the machinery have recently been completed.

  Operations have been resumed, after temporary shut-downs of brief duration for repairs at the Last Dollar mine of the Modoc Consolidated Mines Co. A Wellman-Seaver-Morgan electric hoist with capacity to 2000 ft. equipped with a 3-ton skip, has been ordered for the Last Dollar shaft.
  Both properties have resumed production.

  Development work at the Last Dollar shaft, Modoc Consolidated Mines Co., is centred in the long cross-cut through the Combination claim, to the north-west.
  This cross-cut when completed will be 2400 ft. in length with cross-cuts at intervals to exploit this undeveloped territory. The cross-cut should cut every known vein and dike that traverses this claim.
  At the 1200-ft. level, three veins are under development in ground south and east of the shaft.
