In order to facilitate the selling and buying of ore, public sampling and ore-purchasing companies have been established. Such a company acts as a disinterested part' between buyer and seller, sampling the ore for a fixed charge per ton. PRACTICE AT CRIPPLE CREEK, COLO. As an example of how transactions in ore are conducted, the practice at Cripple Creek, Colo., may be cited. The shipper who sends his ore under contract to a milling company has the right to sample his ore in any of the public sampling works at his own expense. He may then either sell the ore to the sampler, who buys it under the milling company's contract rates, or he may reconsign it to the milling company direct, where it is again sampled, the results of this sampling becoming the basis of settlement for the ore. In any event all ore passing through the sampling works on contract must go to the mill holding the contract. Ore that is rceonsigned and not purchased by the sampling company is sampled for 60 cents a ton, but if it be purchased by the sampling company the charge is $1 a ton. As to ore not under contract, the owner has the choice of either selling it to the public sampling works or shipping it directly to the mills or smelter. The deductions for treatment made by a sampling company are governed in every instance by those quoted by mdls and smelters, as the sampling company has no other outlet for the purchased ore. Public sampling companies give the ore shipper the advantage of having his ore sampled in the camps and purchased by the sampler under mill or smelter contract and of receiving his money several days earlier than if he ships directly to the mill or smelter.
