The Mine & Smelter Supply Company

This company, having branch houses in Denver, Colo., Salt Lake City, Utah, El Paso, Texas, and the City of Mexico, Mex., with general offices at 42 Broadway, New York City, is the largest concern in the world handling mining and smelting machinery and supplies exclusively. Their territory covers the entire Rocky Mountain mining districts from British Columbia to the Isthmus of Panama.

The Salt Lake branch was opened in 1898, having taken over the business of the Utah & Montana Machinery Company, which had been doing business in this city for a number of years.

Like the other branches located in Denver, El Paso and the City of Mexico, this company has made a reputation in Utah in the machinery and smelter supply line which has placed it in the front rank of similar concerns throughout the entire country. During the last eleven years the Salt Lake branch has become the distributing point for mine sup-plies in Utah, Montana, Idaho and Nevada.

The Mine & Smelter Supply Company owns control and manufactures the Wilfley concentrating table and the Wilfley slime table. These machines are in use almost exclusively in every mining district in the world where concentration is necessary.

This company is the exclusive representative in its territory of a number of large Eastern manufacturers who manufacture machinery and supplies covered by their line, such as the Henry R. Worthington Pump Co., the Knowles Steam Pump Co., Deane Steam Pump Co., Blake Steam Pump Co. in their pump line; the Laidlaw-Dunn-Gordon Co., air compressors; Frost Manufacturing Co., boilers and engines; the Ransome Concrete Machinery Co., concrete machinery; Revere Rubber Co., rubber goods.

They have the exclusive sale of the Mine & Smelter Supply Company's assay balance, manufactured for them by Wilfred Heusser in Salt Lake City, which is without a doubt the highest-grade instrument of the kind made. This balance has a number of improvements which appeal to the users of this class of instruments. The Mine & Smelter Supply Company's stock includes all the requirements of mine, mill and smelter from assay supplies to the heavy machinery used in milling and smelting plants.

The Salt Lake office and salesroom of the company are located at No. 121 to 125 West Second South Street and the warehouse is located on Third South and Fifth West Street. The Salt Lake branch is under the management of J. W. Gates.
