8vo. 6, [2 blank] pp. Self-wraps. Fine. The Sutro Tunnel, which took nine years and $6,500,000 to complete opened the beginning of a new era in western mining, and was immensely profitable. It involved a tunnel ten feet high, twelve feet wide, and some three miles long with lateral branches, into Mount Davidson from Carson River to the Comstock lode, to provide ventilation, drainage, and an easy means of transporting men and materials to and from the mines.
