Tsylor Whiskies, of superior excellence nanza became increasingly abandoned, except by a limited few, wile have never lost their faith in the ultimate outcome of the camp. Today Bonanza is little known among the general pu blic interested in Colorado mining, and as a matter of fact has been practically lost to view until lately. There have, however, been many changes in conditions in favor of Bonanza since its i early "boom" days and subsequeut !"slump'' days. CONDITIONS NOW IMPROVED. In the "eighties" the wagm. freight on ore from the mines of the Bonanza dis- trlot to the nearest railroad pont, Villa Grove, was from $4: to $5 per ton, the railroad freight from Villa Grove to the smelters was $6 per ton and the smelt. InS charge was from $8 to $12. Success- ful concentration, as now understood, was then unknown. Today the wagon freight is $3, the railroad freight from $3 to $~, the smelting charge from $5 up- wards, some of the lead ore being treat-! ed gratis, while local concentrating plants onup to date principles, are treating the lower grade ores more or less success. fully. What the district is capable of under present improved conditions can be real- ! ized by a brief notice of some of the prominent mines in the "eighties," as follows: The Empress Josephine mine in Cop- per gulch, half a mile from Bonanza, owned in Cleveland, O. Up to 1888 this] property shipped ore which nettea $200,., 000 after paying smelter cbarges, etc. The mine is only 400 feet deep, has been shut down on account of water, but there is some ~alk about renewing work this spring. The Exchequer mine, close to the Bo- nanza, belonginz to S. F. Rathvon ell Denver. This property produced large l quantities of rich surface ,,re in the ear- ly eighties and work m still being prose outed on concentrating ore. The Cornucopia mine, one mile from Bonanza, also belonging to S. F. Rath- yon. The property Was a heavier pro- ducer than the Exchequer, the ore being a gray copper running as high as 8 per cent. in copper, over 100 ounces silver and sometimes half an ounce of gold per ton. Thm mine is troubled by water. AN OLD SHIPPING PROPERTY. The Bonanza mine, owned hy the Bo- nanza Mining company of which Irving Howbert of Colorado Springs ie the man ager. Years ago this .property shipped 3,000 tons of ore carrymg from 8 to 10 ounces of silver per ton and from 40 to 50 per cent. lead. :].'he mine is only 250 feet deep and there is concentrating ore at the bottom of the shaft. The Rawley mine in the '80s shipped considerable quantities of lead-silver ore, also high grade copper ore. It is now owned by David G. Wrens and his New York assocmtes and a1-1..rge working tun- nel is being run to tap the ore bodies at depth. A group consisting of the Radchffs, Payson, Little Johns]e, Wisconsin and others, about throe and a half miles from Bonanza, was purchased it] the early '80s by ex-Governor Foster of Ohio and his associates. Thm group shipped a con- siderablo quantity of ore soon afterward and has been intermittently worked over since by lessees, the Wisconsin produc- ing at the present time. The Hortense mine, half a mile from Bonanza owned by K. S. Fisher of Bo- nanza, years ago produced small quanti- ties of ore running as high as $40,000 in gold and sdver per ton. The Gem City group of six claims in Copper gulch, owned by Mr. Widmayer has large bodies of concentrating ore. Other similar mines coald be mention- ed as showt~g the widespread existence of mineral throughout the district,wbmh can be mined, hauled and treated today at great sdvantsge as compared with the local conditions existing in the latter '80a ~:hen Bonanza began ,o decline. There are already thre~ o(incentra~ing mills in more or less successful ,peration iu the district, wz: the Be]dell mill, ca- pacity 30 to 40 t(ms per day; the R,,ss mill, eapaciiy 2Qt, 30 tons and the lea- bells-Emma mill, capacity al),,ut I0 tons. All three mills are equipped with Wil- fley tables. BETTER DAYS ARE COMING. The dawn of a brighter period is evi- dently break|n~, for Bonanza. A few years ago David G.

When writing men- tlon reading this generous offer In this paper, over fifty claims, some of which like the Rawley, Josphine, Paragon, Michigan and a number of others, were considera- ble ore producers years ago. He also ac- quired a smelting plant originally erect- ed by'Philadelphia capital at Parkville six miles below Bonanza, which he has converted into a copper matte plant, it having the advantage of proximity to large deposits of iron ore and lime, nee. essary aa fluxes. Mr. Weems, as before mentioned, is running a tunnel which will be eoutinued to a total length of 3,000 feet attaining a maximum vertical depth below the surface of over 1,300 feet The coast]mat]on of these and other plans by Mr. Weems will put au entirely new complexlon on Bonanza and will am- ply demonstrate the capabflitie~ of the district u~ler the improved oondition~ as an ore producer and dividend payer. Cripple Creek parties have taken a bond on the Sosthenis mine belonging to Baldwin & Mackay of Bonanza. Years ago this property shipped one lot of 606 tons of ore, which'netted $49 per ton after paying royalty freight and smelting charges or a total of over $30,000 net re- cepts on $12,000 Worth of work done on the property. The ore chewed nix tenths of an ounce of gold and sixty one ounces of silver per ton. The Cripple Creek parties recently took out ore running 19i ounces silver and $12 in gold per ton. New England parties have secured a bond ou the Hanover mine, owned by Buck & Sharp of Bonanza. It has au in- cline shaft 300 feet deep, at the bottom of which is a vein from two to t~ree feet wide running 25 ounces in silver per ton, 35 per cent. lead and 5 per cent. copper. OPENING OF EAGLE MOUNTAIN. One of the most important racent srents for Bonanza has been the open- ing up of the Eagle mine of the Lucra- tive Mining com0any on Eagle mountain about two miles from Bonanza, disclos- ing an entirely different class of ore to any which had theretofore been discov- ered in the district. Tha workings of tbe Eagle mine, as yet, arc only 250 feet deep, and continuous shipments are made of ore carrying as high as 90 ouuoes per tea m battle and wire silver, but no gold lead or copper. The ore improves with depth. The geological showings on Ea- gle mountam are exceptionally encour- aging. ~he Hallwood Mining company ~has undoubtedly ia its ground a little higher up the mouutmn, more than one vein, including the continuation of the Eagle vein. Denver parties have secur- ed the Dad Rogers claim, paralleling the Eagle claim. Lower down the hill Dr. S. E. Kortwright of Bonanza owns the Edith Charles claim with a shaft 75 feet] deep, disclosing ore assaying from 6 to 30: ounces silver per ton. At the base of the hill the Golden Gate tunnel has been commenced, the continuation of which it is expected will cut a number of the above mentioned veins at depth. Esgte mountain today presents better surface showmgs and workings than Gold hill, Cripple Creek did in the early '90s. The deepest mme around Bonanza is only 400 feet deep and the others much shallower. A careful consideration of the history of the district and its present conditions leads to the inevitable con- clusiou that it only needs further capital in development work and improved met- allurgy, always associated with exper- ienced, competent and conservative man- agement, to transform a number of the properties into continuous me shipping, dividend paying mines. It is, tberefore, gratifying to know thatoutside capital is beginning to wake up to the possibilities of the district under present improved conditions. Bonanza has an altitude of about 9,000 feet.. Work can be continuously con- ducted throughout the wmter.
