This paper shows how metal values can be profitably won from a comparatively small and remotely located but high-grade ore body. To do so is not practical for a large mining company, with its necessarily high overhead of services and organization essential to a large producer. To evaluate, develop and profitably exploit a limited but defined ore deposit becomes only a problem of determining the dollars required to win the dollars available. This paper will record how this was carried out during 1965 and at the same time describe the history, development and production plant of this property.
