Among the experienced and well informed miners of Missouri there are few who have been longer identified with mining
intrests there or who in a general way have been more successful than William Carmani, of Joplin, Jasper county,
superintendent for the Perry leases, which are owned in New York. He has been connected with these mines for a
quarter of a century, except during a period when he was mining in the west and in British Columbia, and has filled
his present position as superintendent during the past two years. He has done a good deal of prospecting, and from
1890 to 1895 worked the Chatham and Tracy lease in Carterville, Jasper county. In 1885 he opened up some good mines
at Belleville, Jasper county, notably the old Keystone mine.
Mr. Carmani was born in Kosciusko county, Indiana, in 1858, and remained there until he was seventeen years old.
His father, now deceased, was an old settler in Indiana, and his widow is living at Carl Junction, Jasper county.
Mr. Carmani was married February 19, 1901, to a native of Indiana.
