This Week in History As reported by The Summit County Journal in the week of September 3, 1921:

New car developed with Climax Ore

The Villes Saint Clair is a new car that embodies the use of molybdenum steel, which makes it possible to build a lighter car that should prove stronger than the heavier cars on the market. The car was developed by C. Harold Mills, and the city of Marysville, Michigan, developed into the automobile’s production center.

The molybdenum used in the vehicle is coming from Climax, and the manufacturers claim light weight, economy of operation, great power, long life, freedom from repair costs and great ride as possible characteristics of this new alloy.



The result of this car in the market will be seen by everyone around, as its success means opening up a new industry for Summit County as molybdenum occurs in addition to the climax in many parts of our county.

Visiting Mining Engineer Sees Better Times Ahead

Los Angeles metallurgical engineer consulting Frank R. Wicks is returning west after spending six months overseeing the construction of a mill at the Royal Tiger Mine near Breckenridge.



Although the mill is not complete, it is expected to be ready for operation by the end of the year, when 500 tonnes per day will be driven. This was the third tour of Wicks’ property, the first being in 1916. They should return again next year and visit Leadville.

“It looks like the slowdown in the mining industry is about to ease,” Wicks said. “Signs are pointing to this. Increase in business in your smelter to which the mill of Royal Tiger Mining Company will contribute is a good sign. So is it called for resumption of operations of various mines in your camp? Better times are about to begin.

Grand Ball to give Labor Day festive air
