It will thus be seen that Cordova Mine has ample power, and, when it is added that cost of running this plant is less than $5,000 per annum, it will be seen that this is exceptionally cheap power, also that present power plant will furnish ample power even up to the eventual contemplated capacity of 5,000 tons per day.

The 400 horse power turbine is direct connected to a 250 K.W. generator and the electric current, 2,200 volts, is conveyed over three aluminum cables a distance of three miles to the transformer station at the Mine, where it is stepped down to 550 volts for driving motors and to 110 volts for lighting.
