Five new drifts 500 feet deep have been driven in the West Virginia iron-ore bank at Harper’s Ferry, now owned by Edward W. Mealey, of Hagerstown. The lowest drift is 80 feet below the surface. A large quantity of the richest ore has been discovered, which Superintendent W. C. Forman thinks will furnish an output of 60 to 100 tons a days. The largest vein runs 550 feet, so far as located, and is six by twenty feet in size.
The company is now filling a contract for 800 tons of iron ore a month for the Dunbar Iron Company, of Dunbar, Pa., with the priviledge of shipping all that is mined there.
