Reported in Mining and Engineering World, Volume 41 - 1914 The Great Desert Copper Mining Co., whose property is located on Wildcat mountain, about 19 miles south of Cloe, shipped a car of ore to the Garfield Smelting Co. this week. At the local offices the management is considering plans for the installation of a gasoline engine, air compressor and drills on the property, after which it is believed that the ore shipments can be trebled. Ore shipments at the rate of a car per week will be continued until the machinery is installed. There is at present in the neighborhood of 400 tons of ore on the dump awaiting shipment.
