Annual Report of the State Geologist of New Jersey - 1886

Samson Mine, Chester, Morris county.

This mine is owned by the Samson Mining Company, of Chester, N. J., and is worked under a lease, by Cooper, Hewitt & Co. S. W. George is superintendent.

The formation is of the shoot nature, having four well-defined walls, viz.: foot and hanging walls, which dip at an angle of 40° to the southeast; and bed and cap which pitch northeast at an angle of 20°. The length of the vein is 350 feet. The average depth is 300 feet. Two openings have been made on the vein, about 150 feet apart. The ore is "red short," and an analysis on 15,000 tons averaged:

Metallic iron 53.90 per cent.

Phosphorus 0.11"

Sulphur 3.80

Silica 11.81

No titanic acid was found. The lime amounted to about three per eent. The mine is capable of producing about 8,500 tons of ore a year, and that amount is being mined. It is transported by way of the High Bridge Branch R. R., and goes to Reading, Pa. The well equipped mining plant greatly cheapens the cost of production. Four 3-inch Ingersoll drills are kept going, driven by compressed air.
