These specimens will serve to show
the general character of the ores of
this section. As a rule, the ores are
brown, or decomposed sulphurets from
the surface to warter level, where the
sulphurets of both iron, and copper
are found in a perfect state 1 Ins fact
accounts for the abandonment of
many mines which have yielded free
gold we1, until this trouble at water
level was encountered. I his is caused
by the refractory condition of the nn-
lecomposed vein matter, the gold
being in chemical combination with
sulphurets, and can only be extracted
by smelting or chlorination, the last
process being most too expensive for
our low grade ores ; in tact, it is a
question whether any process has yet
been discovered that will render tlie
working of North Carolina low grade
sulphurets a profitable undertaking.
;1 he discoverer of a process that will
fully meet the di Irion I ties to be en
countered iu our lean sulphurets will
have his h rti ne se u. ed.
By examining the 8ecimcns, you
observe that iron and copper pyrites
frequently occur in combination,
which fact does not lessen the task of
extraction. Where these two sulphu
rets are found together there is a
strong tendency for the whole mass
to become cupriferous to an exclusive
degree as depth is attained, which
f tct ma) al-o In cited as a rea.o f;i the
desertion of dcotits supposed to be
only auriferous when discovered ami
opened on the surfiee, j
There is probably more said and
written about North Carolina mines
to-day, than ever before. It may be
taken as an indication in our favor.
The better known the resources of a
State, the more pnbability of attracj
ting intelligent capital. Let me say
lust here that caiital alone will do
us no good from a permanent, legiti
mate business standpoint. It is thor
oughly necessary to have intelligent
superior labor; l he shoveling of the
dirt and cracking oi the stone may be
(hme by ordinary labor, but it must
be directed by an intelligent and
practical understanding of economi
cal mining. Many mines now lie idle
from ignorance, wLile others have
deserted cabins and filled up shafts
from mismanagement and fraud.
