The writer is indebted to  Dr. W. L. Uglow, Professor of Mineralogy, The University of British Columbia, for helpful suggestion and criticisms in regard to the subject matter in this report. The first part of the thesis is a brief outline of the sources, properties and uses of antimony and the methods of extracting antimony from its ores. This is not complete in every detail, but is intended to give the reader a general conception of antimony in the commercial world. A brief summary of the economics of antimony is included.  While this  deals onlv' with the outstanding points, it may be of some use in comparing antimony with other metals ontthe commercial market. The latter part treats with the 'Geology of Antimony* . The information oontained in this  thesis, is of  necessity derived from the reports of others.  In summarizing  and arranging this subject matter the writer has attempted to bring out the important facts contained in the reports and has give only sufficient detail to illustrate the various points. The reader is referred to the bibliography if he should require further details of any of the reports contained herein.  2. II. SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS. Prior to the war Great Britain was the chief smelter of antimony ores, hut slnoe then the Chinese and Japanese have obtained control of the American market.  China is the  largest antimony producer! capable of supplying the world demand, while America and Great Britain are the ohief consumers. Stibnite is the principal ore of antimony although its oxidation products, cervantite, kermeaite, valentinite, stibiconlte and native antimony may also he of importance. These oxides may al30 he derived from other antimony minerals as jamesonlte. Workable antimony ores occur in Mexico, California, Nevada, Canada, Alaska, Japan, China, Borneo, Australia. New Zealand, South Africa* Asia Minor, Algiers* Italy, Sardinia, Corsica, Prance, Spain and Portugal, Stibnite and other antimony minerals may occur in association with gold, silver* lead* etc., and in such eases the associated metal may be of more importance and the deposit worked for such rather than for the antimony. Antimony minerals are deposited from rising thermal alkaline solutions, originating in an igneous magma. They have a wide range of temperature distribution, being found in oontaot metamorphlo deposits and in those now forming at the surface from hot spring waters. The deposits of economic isiportanee for their antimony content are believed to have been formed principally at intermediate temperatures. Antimony minerals are genetically associated with  3. Igneous rooks of the granite, monzonite or diorite groups and are, perhaps, somewhat more abundant with the more aoidio t y p e s . I I I . HISTORICAL SKETCH. Stibnite has been known sinoe very early times, e s p e c i a l l y in the Eastern countries, where women have used i t for many oenturles to darken t h e i r eyebrows and eyelashes and to add lustre to the e y e s .  Reference i s made to i t in the Old Testament,  and the Arabs called I t "Kohl".  The Greek Dioscorides refers to  I t as +rrts,ri »'; Pliny as "Stibium"? Geber aa "Antimoniura" and the German writes i t as "Speisaglana".  The derivation of the  word antimony i s not knows. Antimony, as an element, was f i r s t isolated in 14c0 (1) A.D., by Basil Valentine. In I556 A.D., Agrioola desoribes s t r c r a l methods of assaying for antimony, and for the reoovery of the metal from i t s ores. Following I t s i s o l a t i o n in 14&0 A.D., antimony was extensively used as a medicinal agent, but as such i t became so badly abused that in I566 the Parisian Government prohibited i t s use in medicines. as type metal.  Agrioola mentions i t s use in a l l o y s such  Sinoe Agrioola's time the demand for antimony  has increased in proportion as new properties and uses of the metal have been discovered. from 18«7 - 1911 the average world production of antimony metal per year* from i t s ores, was s l i g h t l y in excess of 10,000 metric tons with an average price of 7 . 5 / per pound.  (1)  De Be Metallioa.  4. Prom 1911 - 1914 the production inoreased from 15,000 t o 22,000 metric tons per year with the p r i c e remaining a t 7,5^ per pound. During the war the production increased tremendously, reaching a maximum of 82,000 metric tons in 1916.  Prom then u n t i l 1920  the output gradually decreased to 20,000 metric tons per y e a r . Since then the antimony ores have supplied, on an average, about 17,000 metric tons y e a r l y . The p r i c e of antimony since 1914 t o the p r e s e n t has been very e r a t i c .  I t reached i t s maximum of 32^ per pound in  1915 and then declined t o 8^f per pound in I919.  Sinoe then  the monthly p r i c e has been very u n s t a b l e , f l u c t u a t i n g a great d e a l between 5 / to 19^ per pound. The above d a t a do not include the amount of antimony which la recovered from hard lead and scrap, which amounts t o 5,600 metric tons annually in the U.S.A. IV. SOURCES OP AHTIMOHT. Besides being e x t r a c t e d from i t s o r e s , antimony i s derived, to a considerable e x t e n t , from antimonial l e a d , a biproduot from smelting s i l v e r - l e a d ores containing some antimony.  I t i s also recovered from sorap dross and other waste  m a t e r i a l s , and to a s l i g h t extent from some copper o r e s . (1) V, CHARACTERISTIC PROPERTIES OP AKTIMOHY. 1, Antimony is a silver white, crystalline, brittle metal with a white lustre.  Its specifio gravity is 6.7 - b.86,  hardness 3 - 3.5 and it melts at 432° 0 and bolls between 1090° and 1600°C. (1) Dictionary Applied Chem.  Thorpe.

"The peace time uses  (1) of antimony are many, hut  only a few require large quantities of the metal. ... its field of uses, however, exclusive of abnormal war demand, is widening and the consumption is increasing." The unalloyed metallic metal has a few Industrial uses, such aa in the manufacture of pigments, and in producing a metallic finish on pottery. The chief use of antimony, however, is in alloy with other metals,  w  "The antimony oxides  are used chiefly for making  white enamel and glass, the oxides and sulphides aa coloring agents and pigments, and the sulphides in vulcanizing rubber. The oxide is used also in proportions up to lk% in the manufacture of litharge... It is used in making oollodial products employed in medicine and surgery, in tanning, in the preparation of oosmetlos, for the protection of plants and for the Impregnation of wood fabrics.'* (1) Mineral Resources, U.S.&.S., part 1, p.284, 1?23.

It generally increases the hardness, b r i t t l e -  nesa and f u s i b i l i t y of the metals with whloh i t alloys, and Imparts to them the valuable property of expanding on solid i f i oation.  The a l l o y s of gold, s i l v e r and lead have a greater  density than t h e i r mean constituents, while those of iron, t i n and s l a t are of l e s s density than t h e i r mean c o n s t i t u e n t s .

Increasing th<%  antimony increases the hardness, raises the melting point and reduoes the maleabillty of the alloy. It Is used in oastings, domestic utensils and as a base  (1) Dictionary of Applied Chem. Thorpe Vol.1.  8. for electroplating; i t i s harder than pewter and i s replacing that a l l o y . (b) Bearing or Antifriction Metal.  The better  grades contain antimony, t i n and copper in Tarying proportions.  These alloys are soft, malleable, and  are capable of standing r e l a t i v e l y high temperatures without fusing. Alloys with Copper. Frequently added to copper and brass to int e n s i f y their c o l o r .  These compounds are harder,  f i n e r in texture and take a b e t t e r p o l i s h than brass or copperv and for t h i s reason are often used in copper mirrors and r e f l e c t o r s . Alleys with z i n c . forms c r y s t a l l i n e compounds differing widely in composition bat retaining the same form.  They  decompose water rapidly at boiling temperature and giro a possible source of pure hydrogen. Alloys with Aluminium. These a l l o y s expand on solidifying* are hard and f a i r l y malleable and are unaltered by air or water at ordinary temperatures; they are also l i g h t . (1) P.

"Of the ten or more known s u b s t i t u t e s for antimony, the best found in reoent years i s a combination of oaloium and barium  The prooess i s e l e c t r o l y t i c , and calcium-barium-lead  a l l o y s are now made on an extensive s c a l e . "  Other s u b s t i t u t e s  for antimony are barium and bismuth; for the antimony exides, t i n oxldt and other white oxides may be used in p a i n t s and p i g ments; pure lead sulphide and iron sulphide may be used as s u b s t i t u t e s for antiaony sulphide in primers of s h e l l s and c a r tridges.

The best recovery of antimony l a obtained by employ-  ing a f l o a t a t i o n p r o o e s s ,  (1) Lake George Antimony Ores and t h e i r c o n c e n t r a t i o n , Parsons, O.M.Journ. Vol,45, October 5/24, p . 9 8 4 ,  C.S.  It  12. 2. Smelting. In the d i r e c t method, m e t a l l i c antimony and i t s compounds are nearly always extracted from the ores by (1) dry methods. According to t h e i r s u i t a b i l i t y for the several methods of treatment* the ores f a l l i n t o two c l a s s e s ; sulphide ores containing more than 4Q% s t i b n i t e ; and sulphide ores cont a i n i n g l e s s than 40% s t i b n i t e and oxide ores of a l l grades. This l a t t e r c l a s s includes l i q u i d a t i o n r e s i d u e s and flue deposits. ( a ) Ores Containing more than 40% S t i b n i t e . If the ores contain more than 90% of the sulphide* no preliminary treatment i s neoessary, but i f t h e i r content ia lower than t h i s they are f i r s t put through a p r o cess of  w  l i q u a t i o n " in which the sulphide i s melted and allowed  to run away from the gangue.  The temperature of l i q u a t i o n  must be c a r e f u l l y regulated, as too high a temperature causes excessive loss by v o l a t i l i z a t i o n , and too low a temperature r e s u l t s in a low recovery of the s u l p h i d e . In the English method the ore i s ground to the size of hazel nuts or smaller and then subjected t o two processes before r e f i n i n g .  The f i r s t process ia c a r r i e d on in  c r u c i b l e s in r e v e r b e r a t o r y furnaoes.  Each c r u c i b l e holds 42$  ore* 1&# iron scrap* 4$ s a l t and Xf alag from "doubling". This charge i s kept in a s t a t e of fuaion for t*o or three hours, at the end of which time the antimony i s removed from beneath  (1) Dictionary of Applied Ohera, Thorpe Vol, 1,  13. the s l a g and poured i n t o moulds.  This product i s known as  " s i n g l e s " and contains about J\% Sb. The second process i s c a r r i e d on in similar c r u c i b l e s and furnaoes as above.  The charge t o each crucible i s 84$  broken s i n g l e s , 7-8f liquated sulphide and 4# s a l t .  The whole  i s kept in a s t a t e of fusion for lfc hours; the completion of the operation being determined by the nature of the s l a g .  The  s l a g i s removed by l a d l e s and the product i s run into moulds and l a t e r r e f i n e d .  This product i s known as "bowl metal", or  " • t a r bowls". The l o s s e s in the English p r o c e s s , by v o l a t i l i z a t i o n are small, ranging from 2% t o 5%. (b) Ores Containing l e s s than 40^ S t i b n i t e . The ores of t h i s type are roasted e i t h e r t o the non v o l a t i l e t e t r o x i d e or the v o l a t i l e t r i o x i d e , or are subjected t o one of the d i r e c t reduction p r o c e s s e s ,  A process  t h a t la becoming ftuite popular and which has marked advantage i s the " V o l a t i l i z a t i o n p r o c e s s " , in which there i s continuous r o a s t i n g oi' the ore to the t r i o x i d e ( S b 2 0 5 ) , The oxidation to the t r i o x i d e takes place at about 400° 0 with the c a r e f u l l y regulated amount of a i r .  Any  one of the modern fume condensing systems may be employed t o condense the fumes, according as i t . is thought to be best s u i t e d t o the purpose. With s u i t a b l e condensing apparatus t h i s process has marked advantages, e s p e c i a l l y with poor o r e s .  I t may be  noted t h a t any arsenio i s separated as the more v o l a t i l e t r i -  14. oxide and any gold or silver ia left in the residue and may he extracted later.  There is no loss of antimony and the fuel  consumption is low. For the volatilisation prooeas the ideal ore i3 (1) from 15% to 25% Sb. Ores above 40% antimony are liquatedas well aa volatilize^  The liquated sulphide forma an oxysulphlde  with the trioxide, whiah is known as antimony glass, which oauses fritting in the lower part of the furnaoe.  If ores of  over 50% Sb are used, then 30% - 50% excess coke is required to volatilize all the atlbnite. (2) (0) Refining.  The unrefined antimony contains sulphur, i r o n , a r s e n i c and sometimes copper and lead; the sulphur and i r o n being most p l e n t i f u l , 2-10% and 0-5% r e s p e c t i v e l y .  The other  i m p u r i t i e s seldom exceed 1,5% combined. All these i m p u r i t i e s , except l e a d , may be r e moved by slagging with oxidizing, sulphurizing and c h l o r i n a t i n g agents.  Glauber s a l t and charcoal remove copper and iron as  sulphides and arsenic as sodium a r a e n i t e . eliminates the sulphur.  Antimony oxysulphlde  Chlorides as s a l t and o a r n a l l i t e must  be used with caution aa great l o s s by v o l a t i l i z a t i o n may occur. Pure antimony, on s o l i d i f y i n g has a b e a u t i f u l fern leaf or »*starrt on the s u r f a c e ,  The q u a l i t y of the ingot  may be determined by the length and form of t h i s s t a r , as re l a -  (1) O.Y.

They often occur in  association with s t i b n i t e and in suoh oases are mined along with the sulphide ore, Bative antimony ooours in several places, as in Bfew Brunswick; Kern County, Calif.; Sala, Sweden; Allemont and Dauphine, France; Sarawak, Borneo.

Distinctive c r y s t a l s are rarely met with; these are  rhombohedral; perfect basal oleavage; sometimes twinned on rhombohedral plane e(110); Hardness 3-3.5; specific gravity  b >5-M2. These oxidised minerals may be derived from either the oxidation of stibnite* or from the alteration of suoh minerals as jamesonite or other sulphur antimony minerals. Objectionable impurities in ores, used for the recovery of antimony are lead, oopper, arsenio, zino and bismuth. These impurities are penalized as follows:Lead up to 0 .3% f r e t ; over 0.3 to 1,5% fy per 0.1%.  Some buyers stipulate that lead should not exceed 0,3%. Arsenio up to 0.1% free; over 0.1% to 0.5% $1.80  per 0.1% or part. Copper carries the same p e n a l t i e s as arsenio; some buyers stipulate that there shall be no oopper in the ore, Zino and bismuth are very objectionable impurities in the ore  22. and should not be present in more than a traoe.  If present In  an amount up to 0.5% they are subjeot to heavy penalties, (b) Those Mined for Valuable Associate Minerals. Gold is often found in association with stibnite.  In suoh instances it may be more economical to mine  and smelt the ore for the recovery of the associate mineral rather than for the antimony content. Kxamples of auoh are found in Alaska, tukon Territory, Hova Scotia, Nevada, Mexico, Hew Zealand and alsewhere,  stibnite is often in association  with olnnabar and such deposits may be worked solely for the meroury and not for the Sb, Besides the association of valuable minerals with stibnite, suoh antimony compounds aa pyrargyrite, atephanite polybaaite, jameaonlte, tetrahedrite, etc., are mined primarily for their silver, lead or copper content rather than for the antimony value. These may occur in association with minor amounts of stibnite and are also found in association with argentiferous galena, j$. Associated Minerals. Stibnite is found in a3sooiation with other primary and secondary antimony minerals. The primary antimony minerals are associated with pyrite, galena, sphalerite, ohalcopyrite, biamuthenite, araenopyrite, pyrrhotite, aoheellte, molybdenite, tin, cobaltite, gold, a live r> cinnabar, realgar, orpiment, etc. The common gangue mineral is quarts which usually predominates and may occur massive, with stibnite disseminated through it, or else it may occur as idiomorphio  23. crystals in a segregated mass of stibnlte.  Calotte, barite,  gypsum, slderite, tourmaline, contaot silioate minerals and fluorite may also be present in minor amounts or may oonstitute the main gangue mineral with quarta entirely absent or in minor amounts, 4. Oxidation of Antimony Ores. Stibnlte deoomposes and forms the oxidation products, valentinite, aenarmontite, oervantite, xermesite, stibioonite and native antimony.  These may at times entirely  replaoe the original stibnlte. as in Algeria, Mexioo, and Borneo,  These same oxides may be obtained by the weathering  of other antimony sulphide minerals as jamesonite, tetrahedrite, bournonite, etc.  If lead is present during the process of 4  oxidation, the aqueous lead-antimony oxide "bindheimite" may be formed. .Thile the oxides of antimony are common, i t s t r a n s p o r t a t i o n by supergene underground waters i s l i m i t e d .

"The minerals of the first column are, as a rale. much more abundant and they are of more common occurrence than the corresponding minerals of the second column. .... If the antimony sulphosalts, where secondary, have been deposited mainly as test results of reactions of silver-bearing sulphate waters on atibnite, it would appear that araenio minerals are leas common than antimony minerals or else that they are leas rapidly replaced under the conditions that exist in veins. But arsenic la as abundant in ore deposits as antimony and is much more readily dissolved in acid solutions. These relations and many others suggest that the complex antimony and araenio sulphosalts of silver are formed in an alkaline environment.  In such an en-  vironment antimony and arsenic sulphides are very readily dis(1) solved. L. G. Ravics has shown that pyrargyrite is about 1/10 aa soluble In alkaline solutions as proustlte and therefore could be more readily precipitated from diluted solutions." These complex silver antimony sulphosalts are formed in and (2) below the zone where argentite forms. H. C.

In these latter instances the overlying  impervious shale has played an important part in trapping the solutions  and thus forming important ore bodies.  The Ore is chiefly stibnite.  This is usually well  crystallized and is found in segregated masses of varying size.  The breceiated zones are characterized by fine vein-  lets, veins and irregular lenses of almost pure stibnite; a small amount is also disseminated through the quartzite. There are few other minerals present; Cinnabar is found in association with the stibnite in some areas, and occasion ally a small amount of pyrlte ia also present.  The gangue  Is quartz whieh is generally massive but druses, lined with quartz crystals, are frequently found. At the surface the stibnite has been oxidized; the oxides present are not definitely known but probably include eervantlfce, senarmontlte  and stibioonite.  These are fre-  quently feundss pseudonorpas after stibnite but seldom have any well orystalllzed form of their own. The geological age and genesis of these ores are not definitely known, but tentatively it is suggested that they are genettoally associated with the intrusion of Tertiary granites.  -28  At Shin Chow  1)-  in the proTince of Kwangtung s t l b n l t e  ooc-ars near the contact of steeply dipping PaleoEOio shales and limestones.

(2) In Horth Westland,  the antimony of the  district occurs as stibnite in a quartz vein traversing argil* lites and greywaokes. Considerable gold is associated with the stibnite and the deposit may be of more importance for its gold values than its antimony content. At Queen Charlotte Sound*  Malborough,  auriferous stibnite is found in a fine grained greenish schistose rock. The chief mineral is stibnite with minor amounts of quartz disseminated through the ore.  "With the antimony ore  are found loose blocks of olivine* with chronium ore, oompact hornblende rock and a white and jrreen chert," In the Hauraki district,  Auckland, the  country rook in association with the antimony deposits consists of volcanic breccias and flow rooks of Tertiary age.

These veins carry both gold and silver but no antimony minerals. Tertiary Mineralization: In the northern section of the Santa Hosa Range the sediments are covered hy volcanio extrusives consisting of basalts, latites, -trachytes and rhyolites. The basalts are the most common; the rhyolite was extruded near the close of the volcanio period and is consequently high in the series, but is also covered with basalts. This rhyolite flow is the important rook in the district as the mineralization is due to the effect of ephemeral springs related to the rhyolite. The veins of the national District are distinctly later than any other rooks and are of the narrow fissure types. They trend northerly and have a steep dip either to the east or west. The wall rock has been subjected to prophylitie alteration, producing some pyrite, oaloite, a little serioite and adularia, and chlorite. This alteration is not extended ower wide areas. The veins vary in width from 1 to 5 feet. They oonsiat of sheared rook and hive a well defined foot wall. Seams of quartz occur along the foot, hanging or intermediate walls* This quartz is aynanetrieally banded, fine grained and vuggy; crystals of quartz line the vugs.  "This fine grained symmetri-  cally banded quartz with open vugs together with the scarcity of pyrite, the consistency of stibnite ana the presence of cinnabar, in one instance, point otrnngly to near surface deposition,"  The mineral deposition took place from hot thermal ascending solutions. The characteristic mineral is stibnite which occurs in varying amounts in all veins. The stibnite may be fibrous and oonfined to the margins of the quartz or it may be in the center of the vein.  It also.occurs as fibrous  well crystallized aggregates in the quartz or as acicular orystals encrusting the quartz crystals in the vugs. Associated minerals are ehalcopyrite, pyritet arsenopyrite, zinc blende, galena, silver and gold; cinnabar was noted in one instance. These minerals occur as fine grains along the margin of the veins.  It was  noted that when the stibnite was relatively high the gold and silver values were low, whereas, if the stibnite was scarce the gold and silver values were somewhat higher. The gangue is predominantly quartz either at a massive fine grained variety or crystallized in vugs. Bo oalolte, barite or fluorlte are found as vein filling. Secondary Minerals: Secondary sulphides such as maroasite, stibnite, realgar and orpiment oocur below the present water level.  The predominant secondary sulphide is maroasite and It,  found in varying quantities everywhere. The secondary stibnite occurs either as flat bundles of acicular crystals in the Joints and fissures or as capillary coatings on the quartz crystals in  (i) the vugs, Lindgren  states that due to the predominance of  maroasite these secondary sulphides were most likely produced by (X) TJ.S.G.S, Bull. *0l, 1?15» P**5.  cold ascending s o l u t i o n s r i s i n g along the vein long a f t e r t h e i r formation.

In the cracks and joints of the larger granite  cobbles bunches of stibnite crystals  occur. "With the exoeption  of olaatic magnetite the only other metallio mineral found in the gravel is pyrite which forms loose or intergrowing crystals of octohedral form sometimes combined with the cube," "I believe it absolutely certain that the stibnite and pyrite have been deposited by the hot waters which permeate the gravel,*  On previous examination of the same locality,  *$he absence of ordinary minerals of metallio lustre indicated, in a way, a missing link in the chain of evidence to proove the deposition of ores from hot ascending water*; and this link is now supplied by the observations recorded above. .,, Physical conditions differing very slightly from those at the actual surface will evidently produce crystallized minerals of normal habit and form.

Ho d e f i n i t e l i n e of demarcation can be made as the for-  mer often grade into the l a t t e r .  Some shear zones show great  per-  s i s t e n c y , are well defined and are t r a c e a b l e for aeveral thousand feet. The deposits vary in width from 2 t o 5 f e e t , but are much wider in the shear zone t y p e .  They are i r r e g u l a r  6o. along their strike, pinching and swelling frequently. The richer ore occurs in shoots or kidneys especially in the wider parts of the lode where it often extends from wall to wall.  Small reins  of lower grade ore oonnects these shoots. Rich lenses, irregularly distributed also occur. The stibnite in the richer ores is usually fins granular hut confused aggregates of acioular crystals also occur. These two types are often mixed. Besides the stibnite there may be varying amounts of galena, pyfite, arsenopyrite and small amounts of gold, grains of whloh ore sometimes imbedded in the stibnite. Quartz forms the chief gangue mineral. This oocurs as fine granular vitreous grains, many with crystal terminations, scattered through the ore. A milky quartz with associated feldspars also oocurs but such represents old quartz veins which have been reopened and granulated with a subsequent introduction of stibnite.  The vitreous quarts is typical of antimony ores. Some  of the sulphides and maybe part of the gold belong to an early period of mineralisation, Stibnite - Oinnabar Deposits. These deposits occur both in veins and in mineralised shear zones; the valuable minerals occurring in shoots and kidneys oonneoted by small stringers. Banding is often well marked* and vugs, lined with quartz crystals, are common.  In some  oases the oinnabar is the primary mineral with the stibnite introduced later; in other deposits the oinnabar and stibnite are contemporaneous. The stibnite is in bladed crystals, columnar aggregates and, less oommon, in granular masses, Eyrite, as an accessory  61.. mineral, i s very scarce and some gold i s common to a l l such deposits.  Quartz i s the only gangue mineral present and i s  v i t r e o u s and often idiomorphic.  The percentage of, quarts i s  higher than in the quartz gold h e a r i n g d e p o s i t s .

Where the mineralization is definitely known to be Mcsozoio, there is no stibnite, with one exception in southern Alaska where stibnite is recorded as a minor accessory mineral. All stibnite deposits, the age of which could be definitely established, belong to the Tertiary epoch of mineralization.  In those deposits of doubtful age  the probabilities favor the Tertiary epoch rather than the Mesozoio. fwo instances are known where stibnite occurs in placers.  In the Tolovana district a placer on  Lillian Creek contains magnetite, ilmenite. piootite, limonite, cinnabar, soheellte, zircon, pyrite, stibnite and barlte, in the order of their importance, The character of the concentrates shows that they have travelled only a short distanoe, In the Kantishna district a placer contains gold, quartz, ga* lena, stibnite and black sand.

The vein filling consists chiefly of  quartz and auriferous stibnite and in places a few scattered fragments of the wall rock.  In one instance coarse crystal termin-  ations of quartz were found.  On close examination of the gangue  it is seen that the.quartz is frequently orystallized in elongated crystals approximately at right angles to the vein wall. These facts associated with a noticeable handing of the veins, strongly suggest deposition in open fissures. The wall rock, adjacent to the vein, has been altered to a soft yellowish green rook through which fine crystals of pyrite and araenopyrite are disseminated.  The banding is due to the distribution of the  metallic minerals pyrite, araenopyrite, sphalerite and stibnite through the quartz gangue. The pyrite, sphalerite and arsenopyrite are found chiefly along the walls of the vein, but where the vein la narrow the araenopyrite may extend as fine aoicular crystals from wall to wall.  The atibnite occurs in the inter-  crystal spaces of the quartz and as segregated masaes near the centre of the vein. There is some disseminated ore in which the minerals are more or less evenly spaced, but slight banding is also noticeable. The stibnite is either maaalve, or la found in radiating masaes of coarsely bladed ory3tala. While some occurs disseminated through the quartz, the ma$ or part la found in veins of almost pure sulphide, which vary In width from 2 or 5 inches to Ifc feet ox more.

"The Intrusive granitio masses of the Buckley Eruptives have everywhere played an Important part in the deposition of ore (1) bodies." These eruptive rocks are provisionally placed In the Tertiary but may be older, but they cannot be older than Lover Cretaoeoua as the Skeena Series of that age la out by them. The atibnite occurs 5 miles from Hazelton between Sixmile and Fourmile Creeks.  "The ore is developed along  the oontaot of the seaimentarles and the granite; the hanging wall is highly metamorphosed sandstone and the footwall la granite. On the foot wall the ore oonsista of white quartz with small quantities of disseminated galena, while on the hanging wall the mineralisation is muoh heavier, there being 18 inches to 2 feet of almost solid sulphides of antimony, lead, arsenic, silver and copper and a little white quarts gangue; there is also a little free tulphur."

The vftiitehorse Copper Belt  (1)  is charaoter-  ized by oontaot metamorphlo deposits in limestone at and near the contact of a granite intrusive. The deposits are found in both the limestone and the granite, which has been highly altered in these deposits, The constituent minerals are typical of oontaot deposits; the more common are; magnetite, hematite, bornite, ohaloopyrite, garnet, epidote, augite, scapolite, tremolite, aotin elite, quartz and calcite,  The less common metallic minerals are  tetrahedrite, chalcooite, molybdenite, araenopyrite, galena, atibnite, pyrrhotite, pyrite, zinc blende and rarely free gold, (Jonrad District, (2) The ores of Windy Arm  occur in the Windy  Arm Series consisting of volcanic rooks, both intrusive and extrusive which oat and lie upon the Ooast Range Batholith of Jurassic age. The ores ooour in true fissure veins filled with quarts. The stibnite is associated with arsenopyrite and pyrite* Jameaonlte is found in association with galena, arsenopyrite. ohal eopyrite and pyrite, 6, Rooks with which Antimony Ores are Associated, (a) Igneous, Antimony ores are commonly associated with Igneous rocks of intermediate acidity such as diorites, quarts diorites, monsonites and quartz monzonites; they are also genetioally related to granites. These rocks may be either plutonio. hypabbysal or extrusive. The mineral deposition may ooour either  [  1) R.G.MoConnell. S.S.O. Z) D.D.Oairnes. G.S.C.  1050, 190?, P.20-J2.

The chemical composition of the wall rook has little or no effect upon the deposition of antimony ores, but their physical properties influence the structure of the veins. The exceptions are the metasomatic replacement deposits in limestone . 7. Classification of Antimony Deposits. (a) Geological Conditions under i&lch Antimony scours. In considering the geological conditions under which antimony occurs, it should be kept in mind that the association of minerals found in any vein, may not be of contemporaneous deposition, but may represent a sequence in deposition or even distinot epochs of mineralization. Such sequences and breaks in mineralization might result in marked differences of temperature at which the various minerals were deposited. Thus stibnite might be associated with typical high temperature minerals, yet it may have been deposited under intermediate or even low temperature conditions and visa versa, in many of the reports contained in this thesis no mention was made of any sequence or break in the mineralization so that any e lass i float ion of antimony deposits, based on these reports, must be accepted with the reservation that the mineral association, found in the deposits, has been formed contempora-  75. neou3ly or if a sequence or break in mineralization occurred, it waa of auoh a character as not to alter the conditions of temperature to any large degree. In disoussing the temperatures of deposition the conditions of pressure, existing at such a time, must alao be considered.  Pressure is of importance only when the mineral sol-  utions contain volatile constituents or gases which render them the natural solvents of any contained minerals.  In this oase a  alight decrease in pressure might be of vital importance in allowing auoh constituents to escape which would result in the deposition of the otherwise soluable minerals. Pressure is naturally of groat importance in veins formed above 565"C as this is the oritioal temperature of water, but relatively few antimony deposits are formed at auoh temperatures. The natural solvent of antimony is an alkaline solution. The above evidence strongly suggests that pressure is of minor importance in the deposition of antimony ores. Suoh a conclusion is substantiated by the formation of stibnite at Steamboat Springs, Nevada, where this mineral is being deposited in gravels >0 feet below the present surface. Lindgren draws an analogy, in formation, between the Steamboat Spring deposit and that found in a conglomerate in Iron Qounty, Utah. From this it is the writer's opinion that the important factors governing the deposition of antimony minerals are changes in temperature and alkalinity of the solutions carrying the antimony.  In this It must not be assume" that the deposition  is confined to any one particular zone of temperature, because stibnite and other antimony minerals occur In both contact meta-  •16.;  morphio and low temperature d e p o s i t s , but the evidence suggests t h a t the important commercial d e p o s i t s have been formed a t i n t e r mediate temperatures or s l i g h t l y lower, ( b ) Proposed C l a s s i f i c a t i o n .

(8) Fissure or Shear Zone Deposits, 3J» low Temperature Deposits, E, Sulfotario Deposits, A, Contact Metamorphio Depositsi So far as known the contact metamorphio deposits in which antimony minerals occur, are few in number. The only definite occurrence is at Simapan, Mexico, where Jamesonite is found in association with contact metamorphio minerals. In the Whitehorse district, British Columbia, atibnite occurs with contact metamorphio minerals. Other uncertain occurrences are to be found in Sardinia, Alaska, Skeena district, British Columbia, and South Ham, Quebec, B, High Temperature D e p o s i t s . few typically high temperature minerals oocur in association with antimony minerals. Such minerals as tin, soheelite, pyrrhotite and tourmaline are, however, found in antimony bearing deposits in Mexico, Sardinia, Alaska and the Arabia District, Hevada, respectively.
