Mill of the Darby (Nevada) Reduction Co., Mazuma Nevada.

From G. J. Young, "Co-operation Among Small Mines," Engineering and Mining Journal, volume 106, p. 813, 1918.

Young (1918) writes: "The sixth plant Fig 5 is the mill of the Darby Reduction Co at Mazuma. It is probably the best attempt of those illustrated to provide an adequate plant for a small district. The mill was equipped with an automatic sampler of the Vezin type ten 1000 lb stamps, a 4 x 17 ft tube mill, Dorr classifier, amalgamating plates, four agitators and an Oliver filter. It contained practically all of the elements of a successful custom plant and was well designed and constructed. What its success has been and how well it has served the Seven Troughs and Mazuma district I am unable to say but details of its past history and present position would be interesting. Someone familiar with the enterprise should present it to readers of the Journal."
