  The charge of the mill of the Colorado Ore Sampling and Reduction Company, at Arequa Gulch, Colo., has been turned over to W. B. Milliken.

Page: 1 [Article]: Arequa Mill Ore Output, July



Production of July Fully Equal to That of June.











  Above is given the figure for this Mill's July output of gold ore from the Cripple creek district. In spite of the fact that the month just closing claimed a long holiday, the returns from mills and smelters show that the camp has fully come up to the high standard set in June. The total reaches a trifle over $1,300,000.

  The stamp mills seem to have been eliminated permanently from the situation. None of them have been in operation for several months.

  The outlook for the future is bright, indeed. The great mines are in many instances nearing 1,000 feet in depth, and find the ore bodies richer and wider than nearer the surface. The permanency of the camp is more and more apparent. The most cordial relations exist between labor and capital. Eastern and foreign capital is more and more attracted by the opportunities here offered, and altogether the camp never appeared more prosperous that it does at the close of this month of July.

Arequa Mill to Make a Complete Change in Its Power.

  Within sixty days the Arequa mill will be the first in the state to adopt electric power to drive its machinery. The contracts have been let for three motors, of 100, 50 and 40 horse power. It is the first time that electricity will have been adapted to the treatment of ore in Colorado, and it will therefore be watched with considerable interest by all.

  This does not mean that the steam plant will be dismantled, for it will be held in reserve, to be used in the event of an accident, and thus the mill will have two kinds of power and will be splendidly equipped in every respect with its dual power driving plants.

  The report that there is a strike in the Arequa Mill is not true. Manager Milliken returned from Denver last night and said that his mill is running a full twenty-four hours, with no indications of a dispute of any kind.
  He is at a loss to understand how such a report was published in Denver.

Colorado Springs, Col. - The "Gazette" says:

  "The Colorado Electric Power Company has closed a contract with the Arequa sampling works mill, located near the Elkton mine in Arequa gulch. This mill takes 250 horse power. The plant will be immediately connected up.
  The Arequa will be running by electric power by the first of October. Together with the Economic Gold Extraction Mill, these two concerns are the largest users of electricity in the district.

Mills Move to the Valley.

  Within another thirty days there will be but one reduction works running in the entire Cripple Creek district and that will be the Economic mill, owned and controlled by that energetic firm, the Woods Brothers of Victor, says the Cripple Creek Times-Citizen.
  The plant of the Colorado Ore Reduction Company is shortly to close, in fact, almost all the ore formerly treated at the mill has been diverted to the new Union mill at Florence.

  The passing of the local mills has been on for some time, and those aquainted with the condition of affairs knew that it would be but a short time that a custom mill could exist here in the district and make expenses, let alone pay a dividend on the money invested in the works.
  The people owning the Union mill at Florence are practically those that own the Colorado plant down at Arequa, but rates are so excessively high here and the advantages so great in the valley that another plant was built down there and within a short time their local mill will be closed for good.

  From all accounts Mr. Heller, who is operating this mill is doing fairly well. He is making a specialty of low-grade, oxidized ores, principally dumps.
  At present teams are hauling down the Wild Horse dump. The mill belongs to the Colorado Ore Reduction Company, and is leased by Mr. Heller.

  This mill, in Arequa Gulch, near Elkton, has been totally destroyed by fire this week. For some time the mill has been worked under a lease treating low-grade oxidized ores from a number of dumps.
  The mill was originally erected about 6 or 7 years ago as a cyanide mill, and was afterward enlarged and a chlorination plant added. A considerable portion of the Wild Horse dump has been run through the mill. The property is understood to have been well insured.
