It has been the undisputed claim of Austria that she possesses the deepest metal mine in the world, 3,675 feet beow the surface at the time of the great ttre in 1892. It has now been surpassed says The Engineering and Mining Journal, by the No. 3 shaft of the Tamirack Copper Mining Company, in Michigan, which on December 1 was 3,640 feet deep, and is now more than 3,700 feet deep, the average rate of sinking being about 75 feet a month. This makes it beyond question the deepest metal mine in existence, and only one other shaft haa reached a greater depth, that of a coal mine in Belgium, for which 3,900 feet are claimed. The Adelbert shaft in Germany reached a depth of 3,281 feet.
