The building is dl100 fed, of sufficient size to piit in two more stacks if needed. ( )f the lluxing ores iron is brought from Provo river and lime is obtained near at hand. The smelter turns out about 3d bars of base bullion per day, and 400 bars was shipped to McCornick & Go., of Salt Lake, up to Monday last. The total cost of ihe smelter when in running order, is 25,000. This new enterprise is of incalculable value to the prospectors and mine owm rs of the district, and will enable many who heretofore were unable to develop tlieir properties for the want of means to go to work and take out ever so small a quantity of ore and sell it almost on the dump, and thus obtain money to push explorations further.
