Since the opening of the Las Vegas & Tonopah railroad the mines of the Bullfrog district have been able to make shipments of high-grade ore that were impossible until six weeks ago.
A recent shipment of five carloads of ore from the Gibraltar to the Salt Lake smelters gave a return of $241 to the ton.
The Gibraltar is still stacking high-grade ore that is coming out in the process of development and another shipment will be made within the two weeks.
The Tramp Consolidated has two and a half carloads of ore already sacked for shipment, while the dump in front of the working is practically all milling ore.
