Cerbat Silver Mining and Milling Company
Item# 4720

The Cerbat Silver Mining and Milling Company was incorporated in Delaware in 1919, and had operations in Arizona. The company had a 10-year lease with 10-year renewal privilege on 8 claims and 3 mill sites in the Chloride District, including the Elkhart, Argyle, Edgar, and Victoria mill sites. The Elkhart mine, owned by Elkhart Mines Company, which adjoined the Tennessee mine 1 mile east of Chloride, was traversed by a strong vein, in places 10' wide, with 1' 5" of pure galena and 8 feet of galena and silver with some gold and zinc.

The properties were developed by shafts 200' and 500' deep, short tunnels, and about 2 miles of workings. Operations were resumed in 1920 and the Elkhart shaft unwatered to 300' level. Gross production was said to have been about $1,000,000. Ore reserves were estimated at over $500,000 proven ore, and $1,000,000 probable ore.
