I Out Esmeralda Way by Carol Sirnes Good Morning! Another quiet weekend here in Goldfield. The remodeling at the Mozart is proceeding with the addition of some new tables and the carpeting is from Ceasers Palace in Las Vegas. Owner Bill Schultz and son are doing the work after regular business hours so as not to interrupt serving the customers. William Alan Pezzuto, Ava Roberts, Herb Robbins and Sandra Johnson, all directors of Earth Connections, a non-profit organization, have announced changes in the location of the new Goldfield Brewery. The brewery was to have been at the site of the old Roadrunner Cafe on the curve of U.S. 95. They have joined Connie and Ken Gates, owners of the Northern Emporium Girl Shop, which they will reconstruct into a brew pub. The pub will offer five flavors (brewed on the premises), a bar, a gift shop with items made by area artisans and snacks will be available.. Last month Commissioner Ben Veljoen reported that Mineral Ridge Re- sources Inc. of Silver Peak was awarded aplaque from Gov. Miller for progress "q Rural Economic Development. All the other applicants were from the Las "-egas area. The folks at Mineral Ridge Mine can really be proud of the progress they are making. The following report appeared in The Mining Record, (Denver paper) July 2, 1997: The Mineral Ridge mine poured its first gold on June 24, 1997. Gold production for 1997 is projected to be 37,000 ounces and, thereafter, is expected to increase to 50,000 ounces annually over the currently estimated five and one-half year life of the mine.

Cornucopia has "fast-tracked" the development of the Mineral Ridge open pit, heap leach gold mine since acquiring an initial interest in the project in mid-1993. Proven and probable reserses of 5.2 million tons grading 0.068 ounces gold per ton, with a stripping ratio of 4.32:1, were defined. A production decision was made in early 1996 based on a positive feasibility study. The study estimated approximately 50,000 ounces gold per year at an average cash operating cost of US $235 per ounce. A net capital cost budget of U.S. $25.4 million was established to place the mine into production. To protect against falling precious metal prices. Cornucopia has imple- mented a hedging program pursuant to which 120,000 ounces of gold have been forward sold between 1997 and 2002 at an average price ofU.S. $408 per ounce. Operations at the mine consist of open pit " " mining, four-stage crushing, agglomeration and heap leach extraction of gold using con- ventional cyanide and carbon adsorption methods. The processing facilities are ex- pected to handle a minimum of 2,700 tons of ore per day over a 350 day operating year. To date, 85,000 tons of ore have been crushed and stacked. Gold recoveries are estimated to be ap- proximately 81 percent on a life-of-mine basis.
