RHYOLITE HAS PLENTY OF ORE
OPERATORS ARE WAITING FOR THE RAILROAD
Roads into the District Better Now Than Ever Before --
Camp is Building Up Rapidly.
RHYOLITE, February 8. -- The following mines in the Bullfrog district either made shipments of ore during the past week or have new ore sacked ready for transportation: Montgomery, Shoshone, National Bank, Original, Tramp Consolidated and Mayflower. The Shoshone shipped three cars of high-grade ore to the Salt Lake smelters and has sacked ready for shipment more ore than can be handled by the railroad company in weeks.
The Tramp Consolidated is directly in line with the right of way of the Goldfield extension of the Las Vegas and Tonopah road and while ore is being blocked out and piled on the dumps, it is probable that no shipment will be made until some time next week, as the new road will pass directly below the Tramp dumps at that time.
The Hobo claim of the Tramp has with the Denver three carloads of ore ready for shipment. The Bullfrog National Bank has twelve tons of ore sacked for shipment to Salt Lake. The Diamond Bullfrog has high grade sacked for shipment. The Original has ore stacked for shipment, but probably will put in a mill on the ground. Superintendent Bedford of the Gold Bar started hauling a thirty ton shipment to the railroad. After twelve tons were dragged over the roads the attempt was given up for the time being as the railroad will be close to the mine within fifteen days.
The Gibraltar is in the same condition. No shipments will be made until they can be made cheaply.
