DescriptionFrom the time the Arizona Bureau of Mines was created it has been flooded with requests for a bulletin that would give a fairly accurate idea of the importance and magnitude of the mineral industries in the State, but nothing purporting to cover this subject has been written for many years, and the desired information was scattered through scores of books, bulletins, and magazine articles. When Mr. J. B. Tenney was added to the staff of the Bureau as Assistant Geologist, two tasks were specifically allotted to him: First, and most important, he was made responsible for the preparation of an annual report upon the mineral industries of the State together with much briefer quarterly progress reports on the same subject. His second responsibility was the preparation of a history of mining in Arizona for which a strong demand existed. This volume constitutes the first annual report issued by the Bureau. It was written almost entirely by Mr. Tenney, although Dr. E. P. Mathewson obtained and arranged much of the data relating to smelters and mills. Subsequent issues will doubtless differ materially from the first, since the detailed data contained therein will not be repeated, and only changes in practice or personnel and new developments will be mentioned. Furthermore, it is hoped and planned to make subsequent annual reports more statistical, and to discuss generally the condition and probable future of the mineral industries in various parts of the State. 135 p.
