  The owners of the Pharmacist are willing to wager a few dollars that the three cars of ore which they will ship this week will run over $400 per ton.

  The Pharmacist have made shipments or can with absolute safety be relied upon as a shipping mine in the immediate future.

  The Pharmacist sends out about forty tons a week to denver. The ore nets about $200 a ton, which is extraordinary.

  Recent developments in the Pharmacist mine indicate that the chute from which so much ore has been extracted is dipping diagonally into the Burns lode, and will be encountered at a depth of about 100 ft. in that mine.
  A level from the Burns working shaft is being driven to intercept this channel of ore at a depth of about 135 ft., and within a few days it will be reached.
  After April 1st the lease and bond now held by W. B. Brooks, A. D. Jones and others will be surrendered to the Calumet Mining Company in exchange for 600,000 shares of stock, and the mine will therefore be operated by that company, its sole owner.

  Returns on a car of Pharmacist were received that went a little over $4,300.

  The Pharmacist on Bull Hill is looking well and is being actively worked.

Aspen Daily Chronicle 29.05.1893 Volume: 5 [V] Issue: 274
Page: 1 [General Mining News]: Pharmacist

  The Pharmacist never looked so well and never produced so much ore as is now being hoisted out. The average daily product is now twenty-four tons, four of which is high grade and is sent to Denver, the balance going to the mills.
  On the third level the entire vein matter, seven feet wide, is first class ore and does not need sorting. The cross vein, encountered some days since, mention of which was made in The Crusher, has been drifted on and promises well, the entire vein matter being good milling ore with rich spots occasionally.

Specially Reported for the Engineering and Mining Journal.



  Colorado displays her mineral resources attractially near the main entrance to the Mines Building. Numerous cases filled with ores line the two closed sides of the pavilion.
  Along the aisles great masses of gold and silver ores form an effectual barrier. Numerous beautifully polished columns of building stones ornament the interior, while above all of these a massive coal column raises its head.
  Displayed attractively in the center of the pavilion is $16,000 worth of pure gold. The gold is in glass cases, and arranged so advantageously that it is a source of constant admiration from all.
  As a whole, it compares most favorably with the States that can be
called its competitors, and the amount of ores in weight and value undoubtedly surpasses all others. The exhibits are arranged by counties, each county having a separate space.

  Cripple Creek representations are numerous. Among them are:
  • and the Pharmacist mine free gold specimens and ores averaging from $25 up.

  Regarding the recent Pharmacist strike little can be said that has not already been made public. The returns of the last car have not as yet been received.
  The new controlling elements have, it can readily be seen, plans of wide scope, and have no intention of being hurried in making them effective. Lack of ready funds is giving the company no end of annoyance, not to mention many unpaid obligations.

  The shipment of twenty tons made from the Pharmacist a few days ago nettet rather over $50 to the ton.
  Superintendent Rowan still has hopes of once more making this mine a divident payer. Most of the mineral is taken from the seventh level.

The last shipment from the Pharmacist of fifteen tons brought returns of $91.20.
There is now a good big shipment of low grade ore at Gillett. From eighteen to twenty tons of that which will average five ounces is ready to ship.

  The Pharmacist has discovered a rich vein to the north.

The Engineering & Mining Journal 18.01.1896 Volume: 61 [LXI] Issue: 3
Page: 69 [General Mining News]: Pharmacist

  This mine to-day received the results from the Victor Sampling Company of 9.5 tons of ore, which yielded $155 per ton, and a large tonnage of screenings netted $48 per ton. The mine is likely to come to the front again.

The Engineering & Mining Journal 08.02.1896 Volume: 61 [LXI] Issue: 6
Page: 143 [General Mining News]: Pharmacist

  This mine made a 21.5-ton shipment this week, 9 tons of which came from the 4th level or from the new vein. The balance came from the shaft at the 620 ft. and is supposed to sample about 12 oz. per ton. The shaft will be sunk again during the week. There are 28 men employed now and 8 additional miners on development alone.

  The shaft has been sunk 630 ft. and the present showing is good. The pay-streak in the shaft is fully 3 ft. wide assays taken across yielding $690, but the smelters' returns give over $100.
  This property for 2.5 years did not meet expenses, but incurred a debt of over $8,000, which is fast being liquidated. The shaft was sunk 330 ft. on the vein without encountering any mineral of value, the assays yielding from $3 to $5 per ton, and yet at the depth of 620 ft. the values in the vein returned and the property in all probability after the erection of heavier machinery will be in a position to resume dividends.
  The Pharmacist is now the second deepest shaft in the district.

  This mine at a depth of 660 ft. presents hopeful appearances of permanency. The vein or ore shoot has continued for 60 ft. in depth and for 75 ft. in length, and on the bottom drift is now 3 ft. wide. The gold from the bottom of the shaft is of a bright color, unlike the dull heavy bronze color found nearer surface and is the brightest gold seen in Cripple Creek.
  In the shaft there is no trace of tellurium or even of water. A winze is being sunk on the new vein at the fifth level, the lowest assay taken from the pay streak 6 in. wide has been $200, while several samples
of $500 have been taken.

  At a depth of 660 ft. or the tenth level to-day commenced the starting of new drift. The first time that levels have been started in mineral for 370 ft. The shoot of ore is now proven for 55 ft. in depth and 75 ft. in length and still holds good.

  At this mine, on Bull Hill, a new shaft has been started north of the old shaft. It will be sunk vertically to the 250-ft. level, where it will come on a shoot of ore, and from that depth to the lowest level, 660 ft. It is estimated that the ore taken from the sinking of the shaft will be more than sufficient to meet all expenses of sinking and timbering.
  The mine sold 42 tons of shipping ore, averaging about $150 per ton, during the month of May. The low-grade ore is treated at the Gillette Chlorination Plant.

  This property, on Bull Hill, is gradually liquidating its indebtedness, at the rate of $2,000 per month. The new machinery will be placed on the old shaft, 665 ft. deep, and the old machinery will be used for the sinking of the new shaft.

Cripple Creek Mail:
  A recent shipment from the Pharmacist of 34 tons of ore, averaging $75 per ton is a sufficient reason for the better prices at which the stock is selling.

  Returns from the last shipment from the Pharmacist have been received. There are ten tons of high grade ore that went $85, and forty-five that averaged $30.40 per ton.

  Three carloads of ore shipped from the Pharmacist will return the company a very handsome amount. The best grade is expected to average six or seven ounces to the ton and the balance will run from $40 to $60 per ton.
  This is one of the best shipments that has ever gone out from the Pharmacist and it will break all previous records.

  The main workings of the Pharmacist mine steamed up on the 11th inst. For several days yet operations on this part of the property will be confined almost entirely to cleaning up the mine.
  When work is begun in earnest, the first move of the lessees will be to sink the Jones shaft about twenty feet, and connect it with the eight level of the old workings of the mine. This will be at 560 feet depth.
  A three-shift force is employed. J. S. Murphy, who made a mine out of the Isabella Company's Smuggler, is a part owner in the new lease in the Pharmacist and is in charge of the work.
  The lease runs 5 years.

The Pharmacist.

 James W. Levan and associates, leasing on the north end of the Pharmacist on Bull hill, have just struck it rich at a depth of 140 feet. They are now preparing a shipment from the ore shoot encountered at the depth stated. The shoot is three feet wide and runs better than $120 to the ton. The Pharmacist was the first mine in the Cripple Creek district to pay a dividend, and is equipped with an extensive and modern plant of machinery. The production of the mine to date has been more than $1,000,000. The friends of Mr. Levan all over the state are congratulating him on his exceeding good fortune.
