"The Stratton-Independence mill at Crip­

to a recent dat~, had treated 90,000 tons of
dump 'material and low-grade ore from the
mine, averaging about $3 per ton, at an
average netproftt of over $1 per ton. This
mill opened the way for the profitable treat­

Expensive investigation is often essen·

best suited to the ore to be treated. Before
undertaking the construction of the new
cyanide plant just coonpleted at the mine,
the Portland company had its metallurgists
