OHIO COPPER WILL ; EXPEMPS95.000.00 I All necessary equipment pipe, motors, pump and automatic auto-matic switches for capacity leaching operations in place of the Ohio Copper company's vast tonnage of low-grade ore has been ordered, according to General Gen-eral Manager Samuel K. Kellock. Provided there are no delays in the delivery of the equipment, this installation, costing $65,0Q0 should be made and distributing 1,500 gallons of water per minute min-ute over the surface of the company's com-pany's Bingham estate by the first of September. ) With an experimental plant which delivers but 150 gallons per minute, the company is making mak-ing at a handsome profit over i3,000 pounds of copper a day. Recoveries are averaging around 97 per cent, according to Mr. Kellock. ' Production cost, including in-cluding ; all minig, smelter and freight charges, is seven cents a ound.;. : i ."The last launders been installed install-ed so that the company will have ! 4. total-of 3,200 feet of launders -4600 feet on each side of the I Mascotte tunnel . level railroad tfrackX ; Since recoveries have ! been so satisfactory with less I than the launder space original-jly original-jly planned, the company will not p,ut in any . more . launders, at least for the present, i i If, .when the large pumping plant is installed and the amount of water ' handled is increased, the percentage of , the recovery drops to a point deemed insufficient, insuf-ficient, more launders will .be Provided. .,-'' -'' ' -. The new plant to be put in by mark the latest advance in pumping. Relay pampmg stations sta-tions will be put in on the Mascotte Mas-cotte tunnel on the 750, the 400 and the 100 levels. The equipment equip-ment will be automatic and one man can attend to all the pumps. The cage will also be automatic so that the pump man can op-eratevthe op-eratevthe lift as an elevator in an apartment house is operated. By 5 utilizing the relay system of pumping through copper wire wood pipe, the cost of installing pipe will be reduced 300 per cent as compared with the cost of putting in lead-lined metal pipe. While this work is being done, there will be no interruption to operation of the present experimental experi-mental plant Completion of the launder installation will allow the company to cut the cost of operation to a very appreciable extent, inasmuch as the working force can be reduced. . Engineers who have examined the Ohio Copper properties have made flattering reports as to its success and state it has the highest grade copper cement made any place inthe world.
