MARCH. 1899.
f What We Think. {
We wish to call the attention of
the merchants of this city to the
fact that the publishers of the
Mining Gazette and the Mining
Record are doing their level best to
push this-,camp to the front, into
the place which it deserves. To be
able to do this effectually they must
have a fair; jamount of advertising
patr mage, and every one who feels
interested in the welfare of Kamloops should lend them their support. A newspaper is not a windmill (although it's a horrible grind),
and caiûiot. je run on the same
material.
A few weeks ago a well-known
man in Victoria received a letter
from a prominent London stockr
broker, stating that at present there
was very little demand for British
Columbian mining securities owing
to the large amount of money which
had already been invested in various
Klondike schemes. As several' of
these companies had already gone to
the wall it had produced a very unpleasant impression of this country,
as most people seemed to think that
Klondike was the largest part Of
British Columbia, and" consequently
were getting very cautious in
making any more investments out
here.
It is unfortunate for us that British capitalists have not a better
idea of the size, extent and possibilities of this country. They should
know that   the   district   called the
Klondike is not even in British Columbia but is really. in the Northwest Territories. The mining laws,
class of mining and climate are totally different. There it is principally placer propositions, here it
is mostly copper, silver, and gold
quartz. It is just as ridiculous to
blame B.C. for failures in the Klondike as it would be to blame the tin
mines of Cornwall for the failure of
coal at Newcastle.
British Columbia, will yet prove to
be one of the richest mineral countries in the world, especially in copper and silver. All around Kamloops there are vast deposits, the
extent of which can at present only
be guessed at. What we need is
capital and development. Given
both these, the day is .not far distant when Kamloops will become
the greatest mining camp in Canada.
We have better shipping facilities
than any other town in the country.
The Pot Hook, Iron Mask and Kim-
berley Group, where most development work has been done,, are
within a very few miles of town,
to which they are connected by a
splendid wagon road. The ore from
each of these properties will compare with anything they liave produced in Rossland or elsewhere.
There: are plenty of other claims
which « will undoubtedly turn out
just as promising when there is
more work done upon them. Meanwhile copper is steadily advancing
in price.
There is one thing that must not
be lost sight of and that is that
while seeking to entice capital into
this camp, no one should try to hold
on to a claim in the hope of obtaining a fabulous price for it. Such
people only retard the progress of KAMLOOPS MINING GAZETTE.
the country. They should remember that a prospect with a little
"hen scratching" done on ife is not
by any means a mine. It is a peculiar thing, and shows what a sanguine class prospectors are as a rule,
but lots of them as soon as they get
hold of a likely looking claim, immediately think they have struck
something that is going to make
them rich for life, and that they
have the richest proposition on
earth. Perhaps one can hardly
blame them when the hardships
they often have to undergo is taken
into account. Sleeping in the open
air night after night, with no other
roof but the canopy of Heaven and
perhaps wet blankets to lie in, walking or climbing mountains all day,
sometimes midst snow and ice, with
a heavy pack on his back, living on
the hardest and scantiest of fare,
always hopeful ana on the alert for
"indications," ever with cool eye
and ready nerve braving dangers
that many a man would shrink
from—such is the life of a prospector. But they are the men who
make a mining country.
But to return to our former subject. There is but little doubt that
one of the principal reasons why
more mining property does not
change hands is the unreasonableness of so many claim owners.
Capital is constantly seeking opportunities for investment, but in the
majority of instances runs up
against the same old "snag" which
overturns so many possible sales—
i.e., the man who has millions in
prospective, but only a few hundreds in sight. Why a capitalist
should take any more chances in
mining than in any c A >r business
proposition is hard to discern.
Hardly a claim, prospect or mine is
on the market to-day that is not
placed high above its actual value,
a prominent buyer remarked recently. The difficulty arises from
the owner's ignorance of a mine's
value. The sooner it is understood
that claims and prospects are not
mines, and even when ore has been
developed that investors will not
generally pay for more than there
is in sight, the sooner will more
transfers be made. This leads up
to what is termed "ore in sight,"
upon which point so many have but
little idea. Ask some miners what
they have in sight, and you will
probably meet with the response
that they have a shaft down 40 feet
and, as close as they can estimate,
about 40,000 tons of ore insight.
Now by what method of calculation
this is arrived at is hard to determine. Another will claim to have,
say, in figures, about $50,000 worth.
Ask him what he will sell for, and
he will tell you there is no doubt as
to the ore going clean through to
China, and he thinks that $100,000
would be about the right figure.
He gives no consideration to the
iact that values contained in the ore
in a mine and bullion returns are
matters to be considered, that it
takes money to erect mills, develop
water, build roads, etc. In other
words, it takes money to mine.
While legitimate mining, as a rule,
pays a better interest on the money
invested than any other business, it
is neither just nor right to expect
impossibilities. Oftentimes a mine,
from which every available pound
of ore has been stoped will be placed
on the market at a high figure, and
the bullion returns will be shown of KAMLOOPS MINING GAZETTE.

past reductions. As well might a
merchant pay a high figure for an
empty store simply because in days
gone by it had done a good business.
Let the mine owner consider these
matters. Let him be truthful of
what he has to sell, for the investor
will take accurate account of stock,
and if his shelves are not empty and
his price is in keeping with what he
has to sell, he may dispose of his
property.
Mallina field was discovered by a lad
who, in picking up a stone to throw
at a crow, observed a speck of gold
in it, and reported it to the nearest
resident magistrate. This gentleman was so excited at the news that
he telegraphed to the then Governor, and stated that a lad picked up a
stone to throw at a crow, but in his
excitement omitted to say "and saw
gold in it. " So the Governor wired
back these words : "What happened
I to the crow?"
A good deal of guessing and disputing has always arisen between
prospectors, over the percentage of
metal contained in the ore of any
new find, whether a galena or copper strike, until such time as assays
have determined the facts. As all
ores, whether galena, copper or
iron, can contain only a certain percentage of metal, it is well for the
prospector to know just what is the
highest percentage of metal possible,
and thus give him something to
base his calculations upon. We
submit the following figures taken
from the Miner and Electrician of
Spokane :
Magnetite (magnetic Iran)   .. Iron 72.
Hematite (red oxide of iron)...   ,,   70
Iron pyrites    „   46.6
Cuprite (red oxide of copper).. Copper 88.8
Malachite (green carbonate)...     ,,      57.4
Azu rite (blue carbonate)      „      55.2
Chalcopyrite (copper pyrites)..     „      34.6
Galena (lead sulphide)      „      86.6
Zinc blend (zinc sulphide)       .     „      67.
Recent experiments with Canadian feldspar, by a prominent china
manufacturer, l^ave proved very
satisfactory, and may result in a
large export trade if cheap enough
transportation can be obtained.
An unusual method of discovering
a goldfield is related by the Hon. E.
H. Wittenson, Agent-General for
Western   Australia.     In   1683  the
I All of the Governments have
fallen back upon copper, or compositions in which copper is the predominant metal, for sheathing their
warships. Electroplating the bottoms of ships with copper has recently been experimented extensively
with, and this does away with many
of the old objections to copper
sheathing. Where the copperplates
were nailed on the ships, "pitting"
nearly always started at the nail-
holes. If the salt water was allowed
to enter here, even in the smallest
quantity, corrosion would begin at
once, and in a short time do great
damage to the steel hull. In electroplating, however, the copper sheathing is put on in one unbroken mass
and there is no danger from "pitting". When the whole surface has
been electroplated with copper a
smooth and unbroken surface is
presented, and it fits so closely that
the sheathing cannot be removed
without sometimes clipping off the KAMLOOPS MINING GAZETTE.
It has been offically announced
that the portfolio of mines is to bq
made an independent department in
provincial managemena. This is as
it should be. If the Minister of
Mines will devote his attention to
ths duties of office he will have his
hands full. Mining is now, admit-
edly, the most important branch of
the cauntry's resources, and as such
it is entitled to a seperate portfolio.
It is earnestly to be hoped that the
office will always be filled by a competent, energetic man, and if the
proper selection be made the naming interests of the province will
be materially advanced. Kootenay

ly stated that : "In any well managed mine, the risk is out of all propor-,
tion to the returns, for where it may
cost $20,000 to open and develope a
mine, so that it pays expenses and,
finally dividends, the returns frequently run as high as $100,000 in a,
single year. There is no other legitimate business that pays such profits.
The Hall Mines smelter is now in
the market for lead and copper oresj
and will compete with the outside
smelters in the purchase of ores for
custom smelting. By using custom
ores the company expects, with the
supply from the Silver King, to keep
both furnaces running.

THE RISK OF MINING.
Gold is where you find it. Valuable mining properties heve been
walked over time and again by pracr
tical mining men, which are now
paying mines. Expects have also
too carefully turned down properties
which, on development, have proved
their judgment at fault. So much
has been said as to the risk of
mining, that a few words will not
be out of place.* When one puts
money into a mine now-a-days, hè
■ knows there, or thereabouts, what
ore there is in sight, and its approximate value per ton.   The risk is not j
" nearly so great as that connected |
"with the mercantile business. Merchants ship their goods, on credit,
thousands of miles distant. Comparing the returns of a paying mine,
the risk is out of all proportions to
the returns.    It has been very just-

Mr. Leavitt, who represents an
eastern company, has purchased the
river leases on the Fraser between
Quesnelle and the Cottonwood canyon, off Clark" & Co. He is expecting his machinery shortly from the
east for placing a dredge on the river. The,prices paid for the river
rights are ssid to be in the neighborhood of $3,000 and some reservation
of stock.
It is expected that the Oleson company will launch its dredge, ..already
nearly completed on the Quesnelle,
in the spring. The dredge built by
Mr. Oleson for the company operating directly below Quesnelle last fall
gave good satisfaction, and is generally credited with being a success.
Mr. Mack, at present of Quesnelle, recently discovered .quartz of
good grade in the vicinity of Quesnelle, the immediate neighborhood

The Hamilton Herald says that
last year Canada imported from the
United States steel rails to the value
of about $2,000,000. The year before
our total imports of steel rails from
the States amounted to about $1,200,
000. The value of our imports of
"railroad iron and steel of all sorts'*
from Great Britain last year was
$67,834, as against $124,115 the year
before. In the the matter of steel
rails. It is clear, the Canadian preferential tariff does not do Great
Britain any good.
But the proper policy for Canada
is a policy that will give the Canadian market neither to British nor
American manufacturers. There is
going to be an enormous quantity
of steel rails used in Canada this
year, next year, and in the years
following. The demand will steadily increase As the northwest fills
up new railways will be needed, and
all over Canada electric lines are
being projected. The Canadian market for steel rails is now an important one, and is sure to grow in importance. Why should not the steel
rails used in Canada be made in Canada? There is not in the world
better iron ore for the manufacture
of steel than we have in Ontario,
and there is an unlimited supply of
i%. All that is needed is for the steel
industry to get a fair start : and the
legislative encouragement necessary
to give it a fair start is the best policy for Canada.

the miner makes the whole world
that much richer, as it is taken from
no man's pocket, but it comes in its
native state from mother earth. It
is a dollar which has no associations
of crime, want, or misery to be ashamed of, and, unlike other productions, is not consumed or destroyed,
but is a permanent contribution to
the wealth of the co mmunity.
The Provincial Government has
at last consented to make an appropriation for a mineral exhibit from
British Columbia at ihe Paris exposition of 1900. When originally approached on the subject the government seemed to think that ' there
was nothing to be gained by having
the mineral wealth of the province
j represented at Paris, but wiser
counsel happily prevailed and with
the desired effect. The boards of
trade of Rossland, Nelson and Vancouver, assisted by other influential
public bodies brought their power
I to bear, and it is now an assured fact
that British Columbia will have a
fitting place at the exposition.— Nelson Miner.

The North Thompson River District.
By John F. Smith
I enumerated in your last issue
the different class of minerals,
both precious and base, which have
been found to exist in the mountain
ranges on both sides of the valley of
the North Thompson river, among
which I outlined briefly the surface
limit of the coal beds as far as investigations have gone, and the extent of prospecting directed in their
development, the results obtained
from such efforts, which have been
of a highly  satisfactory    nature, KAMLOOPS MINING GAZETTE.
giving it as my firm conviction,
which is based on actual knowledge
of the surface extent of those seams
of coal, and the impetus this particular class of mining has given to
labor, its encouragement for the introduction of other important
branches, both mechanical and mercantile, in and about the locality of
its operations, that through the
natural course of events arising
from the universal interests which
are now being directed to nearly
every class of mining in most remote parts, that the day is in the
near approach when those valuable
coal beds will receive the attention
they deserve. We of course look
for the realisation of this much desired end in the rapid development
of deposits containing the more precious metal, such as that which was
, recently discovered on the south
side of Dixon Creek, from which
specimens have been taken containing high percentage of gold and
silver. This is significant from the
fact that Dixon Creek, which is
situated about three miles distant,
due north of Louis Creek, bas produced, one time with another, considerable gold. Placer mining has
been conducted off and on along the
bed of the creek west of the point
at which the vein in question has
been discovered with indifferent
success, extending over a number of
years. While its production of the
yellow metal was not of a nature to
create any great stir, yet at one
time considerable was shown in the
creek, particularly during the operation of George Dixôn, whose name
the creek bears.
Mr. Dixon's courage was kept up
in his prospecting by his frequent
finding of nuggets, one of which: I
exchanged weighing three and a
half ounces, and afterward got $54
in currency from the Bank of B.C.
in this city for it. There was a
piece of white quartz embedded in
this nugget. All the gold taken
from the creek was coarse, and very
much scattered through what little
gravel there was along the narrow
bench of the creek. There being an
abundance of boulders it became
difficult and expensive to mine. The
significant fact is that although repeated trials have been made not
the smallest particle of gold was
ever found east of the point where
this vein has been unearthed, and
although floats were frequently met
with, with the exception of a few
stringers cutting across the stratas, :
no sign of any vein of -importance
j was ever seen,1 although frequently
prospected for, the face being entirely covered with   from  four to
I five feet of dirt which had'evidently
I washed over it since? the break took
j place.
' Knowing the situation as I do, it
it is to my mind beyond any question of a doubt that, the gold hitherto found in the creek bed below
came grom the vein which is now
being opened. If this opinion proves
correct, the property will undoubtedly prove a valuable one. i This
circumstance however is another
verification of my contentions  with
r regards to the future of the North
Thompson as a mineral producer,
viz., this particular spot on Dixon
Creek has been frequented for years,
in fact a cabin had been erected at
the very mouth of tie present
tunnel, in which to my knowledge
at least six different parties' have
«amped to work the creek and prospect for   mineral   lodes.    Yet   one KAMLOOPS MINING GAZETTE.
was right at their cabin door. My
contention is the country is too
large, the mineral extends and
covers too extensive an area for the
number who attempt prospecting in
that section. The inclination being
to find something better or the next
man might, and so on until the system of prospecting has practically
been regulated to what may be
characteristically termed skirmishing.
This system I am confident will j
be changed as the situation becomes
better understood, and the North
Thompson will take her proper
place among the mineral wealth
producers of this province.
THE COPPER MINES  (Ltd.),
OF B.C.,
Has been formed with a capital of
$125,000, in 125,000 shares of $leach.
Mr. F. J. Deane, of Kamloops, is
the President of the Board of Directors, which is formed of Vancouver
gentlemen, with W. Thos. Newman
as superintendent of mines. The
company has been formed to purchase and develop six claims, four
of which are situated on Coal Hill,
Kamloops, and two on Harrison
Lake.
The Kamloops claims are the
Earnscliffe and Norma, which adjoin the Iron Mask, the Con Verdant
and the Gold Filled. Assays of ore
from the Earnscliffe gave $3.50 in
gold and 17 per cent, copper.. Total
values $33.80 per ton.
Several claims surrounding this
group have made shipments,   and
following are the returns from the
smelter :
Iron Mask-Copper Queen gave on
70 tons, in separate lots, $2.50 to $4
in gold, and from 12 to 17 per cent,
copper. Total average $44 per ton
of 2,000 lbs.
Iron Cap, adjoining the Con Verdant, on five tons trial shipment,
$58 in gold and several per cent, in
copper.
The company has given three-
fifths of the capital stock in payment of the purchase price, 50,000
shares having been set aside for
working capital.
THE O. K. GROUP.
The O. K. group, consisting of the
O. K., Iron Chancellor, and Prince
Charlie, owned by Messrs. Freeman
Harding, Lane, and Williams, is one
of the most promising properties on
Coal Hill. The Group is situated S.
E. of the Iron Mask about 5 miles S.
of Kamloops. On the O. K. a shaft
60 feet has been sunk on a stringer
about 8 inches thick of carbonates
and iron oxides which gradually increases in width. At the 60 foot level
a cross cut 25 feet west, and 24 feet
east has been made, exposing in the
west cutting a seam of silicates of
copper running over 18 per cent
copper. Six feet of this seam has
been cut through, already and evidently there are several feet more.
Assays from the surface of the O.
K. shewed $46 gold, and 18 per cent
copper. On the Iron Chancellor, a
quartz lead over 25 feet wide carrying gray copper and bornite, has been
cross-cut.
On the Prince Charlie a tunnel
has been driven 24 feet in on an
iron dyke, cutting seven stringers of KAMLOOPS MINING GAZETTE.
copper pyrites, but as yet no body
of ore has been struck.
Mr J. L. Brown claims that he
has struck the Python lead on his
claim the Isabel, and maintains that
this lead runs through the Kimberly,
Hecla, Jubilee, Shark, Isabel, and
Python claims.
Mr Thomas Hornby is running a
stage three times a week to Coal Hill
and Jacko lake, carrying passengers,
freight, and mail, to all camps in
that district.
There are rumours of a big deal
with English capitalists, in connection with the Python Group.
As an instance of the wide circulation, and the good work which the
Kamloops Mining Gazette is doing
in the interests of the camp, the
British Columbia Review, a journal
published in London, England, and
which circulates anongst the principal mining investors capitalists and
financiers in Great Britain, contains
three articles concerning the Kamloops camp, One entitled " A description of the Magnetic Iron Ore
Deposits on Coal Hill" (by John
Redman), was published in the
Kamloops Mining Gazette of January last.
Work is proceeding on the Copper
King, which claim looks more promising every day.
An offer was recently made to
bond the Kimbèrly Group fer $75,000
but owing to the terms not being
quite satisfactory to the owners, it
was refused,
Assessment work has just been
done on the Josie claim, which adjoins the Lucky Strike.
The Le Roi, La Reine, Anaconda,
and War Eagle, a group of claims
situated about one mile East of Mr
R. H. Lyons' ranch on Cherry Creek,
and owned by Messrs Lambert,
Lyons, and Yuengling, have been
bonded for $10,000 to an English
syndicate.
On every hand, in a confidential
way, we hear of deals about to go
through in connection with properties on Coal Hill. So far we are
only at liberty to announce that
Miss M. Joussaye has secured a 60
days' option on the Iron Mask.
According to the Province Mr.
Wehrfritz has bonded the Goldten
Star for $30,000, 10 per cent, of
which was paid for in cash. The
bonder was Major C. C. Bennett, of
Vancouver, who left on Sunday last
for England in the interests of his
syndicate. It is intended to open up
the property at once.
Assessment work is being done on
the Iron Cap.
The valuable quartz and mica
mines in the vicinity of Canim lake
are receiving some attention. Mr
W. Pearson of Clinton is now in
that district on a tour of inspection.

was in the city yesterday on business connected with the Green
Mountain group of mines which is
about to be floated in London by a
company of English capitalists. In
conversation with a Free Press reporter Mr. Lyons said that assays
from ore taken from the different
prospects in this group had shown
an average of about $105 to the ton.
The mines are principally gold yielding, with a fair percentage of copper
and silver in the ore. KamloGps is
at present, said Mr. Lyons, the centre of much active development
work and th^ Iron Mask, of which
he was the original discoverer, bids
fair to become one of the richest
mines in the west. The Pot Hook
group are also being actively developed and there is every indication that some of the mines in the
group will prove profitable investments to those interested in them —
Manitoba Free Press.
The mining men continue to rush
up into Cariboo. Mr J. B. Hobson
manager of the Consolidated Cariboo
Hydraulic Company of Forks of
Quesnelle with his summer supplies
being the last one to pass up, operations will soon commence.
