“The United Verde Extension Mining Company’s [UVX] smelter at Clemenceau was closed down permanently when Thursday’s shift went off duty, because the company’s mines at Jerome are not producing sufficient ore to justify continuance of smelter operations, it was announced today over long-distance telephone by George Kingdon, of Jerome, general manager.”
