Not illustrated. 1903 edition. Excerpt: save manual labor as much as possible. Philippine Islands.--G. F. Becker has reported the partial development of a lead mine near the town of Cebu, on Cebu Island, and a deposit of ore at Torrijos, Marnidugue Island, showed a value of 96 g. silver, 6 g. gold, and 505-5 kg. lead per metric ton.

As regards output, the operations were very successsful, but there was a shrinkage in profit owing to the lower prices ruling in the market for lead and to the increased costs of smelting. Work was begun in January to connect the smelting works with certain iron ore leases in South Australia from which the company intends to derive its supply of flux; the cost of the iron ore consumed in the furnaces has heretofore been an important item in the treatment charges. Extensive development work was carried out in the mine, particularly in lowering the main shafts and opening levels, which added materially to the ore reserves. Experiments with magnetic concentrators were continued; one machine was installed which gave good results, but it is not intended to erect a plant until exhaustive trials have been made.
