Mining Notes.
It is very encouraging to note the
progress being made around Kamloops with regard to mining. Several
deals have been put through, and
owing to the exceptionally mild
winter work has been carried on
right along. The exhibit of gold
and copper Ores in the Strand, London, England, will surely prove of
considerable benefit to Kamloops,
and was a move in the right direction. In our next issue we intend
giving some idea of the amount of
inquiries this little exhibit elicited.
For the last few weeks there has
been considerable enquiry for Kamloops mining property. Several
bonds have been arranged on some
of the best groups of claims. The
Kimberly group is bonded to the
representatives of a Detroit syndicate, the terms being $8,000,
and 20 per cent of the company's
stock. The Gordon group, the
Polestar and the Homestake are all
bonded to outside parties. No camp
in British Columbia has better prospects than Kamloops at the present
There is no 1 mger any truth in
the assertion that Kamloops mining
properties are held at impossibly
high figures. The greater number
of properties are now in the hands
of people who are developing them
and will consider any reasonable
The Python hoist has been repaired and a full staff is employed.
Some good ore is being met with.
The Hecla shaft is down sixty feet,
with a good showing. The vein
will be cross-cut both ways.
The Tenderfoot is being developed
by a local company. Six men are
employed. A tunnel has been driven
which has met the vein, and some
good ore is being got, assaying 6 per
cent to 10 per cent in copper, with
small gold and silver values. The
company is to be re-organized with
larger capital.

Gold-Bearing: Conglomérâtes in Northern British Columbia.
Nearly two years ago an immense
body of gold-bearing conglomerate
was discovered by a prospector near
Bear Lake in the Omenica district.
Claims were staked out on the showing* but were subsequently abandoned, until last spring, when three
separate parties having secured information with regard to the existence of these deposits from Mt.
Valleau, the Gold Commissioner
for the Omeneca district* set out
from Vancouver and Victoria, and
succeeded in finding the locality and
re-staking the ground. A large
number of samples of the rock were
brought down for assay purposes,
and while the returns from a Victoria office were not satisfactory,
giving values of less than a dollar in
gold, assays made in Vancouver and
San Francisco gave results of from
six to twelve times greater, showing the rock to average in value
from six to eight dollars, the fine
grit, in contradistinction to the pebbly conglomerate, being found to
contain rather higher values.    These KAMLOOPS MINING GAZETTE.
Omenica deposits are to be thoroughly prospected this coming season, and if the expectations of the
discoverers are realized, the operation of the properties will add materially to the future gold production of the Omenica district. The
nature of the rock is such that
crushing could be performed without difficulty at the rate of five tons
per stamp per diem, and the total
cost of mining and milling should
certainly not exceed three dollars
per ton.
Meanwhile, a Mr. K. Ludloff, a
Russian, geologist, has recently laid
claim to naving discovered auriferous conglomerate reefs in the Cariboo district, and he expresses the
opinion-that .these are, in point "of
fact, the principal source of gold of
the Eraser river placers. The lo
cality of jais -discovery is that part
of the Eraser^ river between Quesnelle and Fort George, about seventy
miles south; of the last- mentioned
place, above a group of islands called
the. Woodpecker * or ;.-Red Rock
Islands^ the Jndian name for which

is:: property: els situated fcwenty-
_m|leS^ frohr'Savonas on the C.
P. R., and four miles from the
Deadmaà River Wagon road. Criss
Creek, which flows through the
property, will afford an immense
water power, and can be very easily
dammed. The ore is in telcose
schist: " This schist is mineralized
for a width of several hundred feet,
but contains/defined veins which
are of value. Gn this claim of about
sixty feet long has been made showing as follows; starting from the
east : "A, three feet wide, averaging $6 ; B, two feet, $8 ; C, two feet,
$11 ; D, two feet $10. Between A
and B are thirty feet of schist
which has not as yet been tested,
but which is known to carry some
promising Veins. Theie is two feet
of barren 'rock between B and C,
and in twenty feet between C and D
occur some veins not yet tested.
Ore is kn )wn to occur both east and
west of 'the area proved. Two-
thirds of the value is gold, the rest
silver, no account being taken as yet
of the values of lead and copper in
the ore, although in decomposed
ore from D contains ten per cent
lead, and' there is about four''per
cent copper in C. These cannot be
fairly ^valued yet, as the work has
not proceeded far enough for these
minerals to be unaffected by the atmosphere and'water. The mineralized schist has been traced for a
long distance, but is covered on the
higher ground by conglomerates,
and is Chiefly exposed to the creek.

will have so little comparative value
as to make it more profitable to
save the precious metals direct and
concentrate the copper and lead afterwards. Less than $2 would pay
for this. Mining in any of the veins
should cost about 14 per ton when
the preliminary work is done.
There is a sufficiency of timber
for mining purposes.
The value of the mine rests
largely, in my opinion, on the numerous veins which are known, but
have not been worked upon yet.
If f iur hundred of drifting, or two
hundred of drifting, and one hundred of sinking were done on the
property, I think that it would open
up a sufficiently large quantity of
ore to supply a mill for some time.
The amount of money required for
this would not exceed $2,500. If
work was carried on here a road
would have to be made at a cost of
about $1,200, of which the government would probably provide part.
The creek is in a deep, narrow
gorge, and as the outcrops are in it,
and much of. the claim 400 to 800
feet above it, this is a first-class
tunneling proposition.
Placer Mining on the North
Thompson River.
Editor Journal —Sir : In laying
before you my views on the North
Thompson river as a gold producing
stream, and its advantages for
dredging, it will be necessary for
me to dwell at some length on the
surface formations of the surrounding country, and in entering upon
this subject I beg leave to be allowed to deal with a somewhat
large area of alluvial gravels tributary to this stream.
Much has been said about gold
bearing placers in different parts of
the world by some eminent men,
but we are still left in the dark as
to where the gold originates from.
The "mother lode" has not yet been
found, and what I might have to
say on this line would, I fear, not
throw much more light upon the
subject. Accordingly, I will not
try to carry your thoughts back
further than to the old conglomerate :*ravels, fro n which, I believe,
a great deal of the present gold
found in the different streams has
If you take a point at the east end
of Kamloops lake and follow an
imaginary line north to the foot of
the Cariboo range of mountains,
north-ea <t of Barkerville, in traversing this line you would meet at
different intervals, large bodies of
those ancient conglomerates towering up, in places, from two hundred
to three hundred feet above the
present water levels in the same localities.
Much of the ancient formation is
still in its original place, as left
there by water action, but it has
become conglomerated owing to the
cement qualities found in its makeup. At the time of this deposit,
water must have flowed at a much
higher level than now. and in its
constant receding to the present
levels of our rivers, has brought
down immense quantities of decomposed conglomerates from these
higher levels.
At the head waters of Jamieson
creek, which flows into the Thompson river, there is a large quantity
of these old conglomerates to be
found. This I tested for gold and
in almost every instanse I found
In comparing the gravels found at
this point with those   found   along KAMLOOPS 'MINING GAZETTE;
the Quesnelle river, in the Cariboo
district, there is no perceptible
difference found. The same old
cements are found adhering to the
rocks, showing that at one period
that country contained much of
- those old conglomerates.
In taking your attention back to
the imaginary line running north,
you will find, by referring to the
map, that it runs nearly on the
highest peaks of the mountains lying between the Thompson and
Bonaparte rivers.
In calling your attention so fully
to the surface of the country tributary to the Thompson river, especially to that lying to the west,
my object has been to establish the
reasons why I believe that large
quantities of gold exist in the bed
of the Thompson.
I believe all the streams from the
west flowing into this river have
brought down more or less gold ; especially the Clearwater river, which
connects with the Thompson some
ninety miles from "Kamloops, and.
which heads in the Cariboo district
only some ten miles from Quesnelle
This stream, no doubt, has
brought down vast quantities of
gold and deposited it along the
Thompson. The current in the
Clearwater river is quite swift until it connects with the Thompson,
which passes through a compara- j
tively level valley to its outlet at ;
Kamloops. Hence the current of j
the Thompson is slow, except in
places where the river has become |
very shallow owing to the discharge \
of boulders from the various creeks
feeding into it, which causes small |
rapids, such as the Fish Trap rapids. |
I estimate   the current   in    the j
Thompson at not more than two
miles per hour at its ordinary stage
of water ; and as the gravels are
not of a coarse grade, it will be
readily seen that dredges can work*
to good advantage where sufficient
values are met with.
During my test work last summer and fall, I did not find any of
the alluvials which I tested that
would not pay handsome profits,
when the proper, improved dredges
are at work.
The gold is of a fine nature, but
will not be difficult to save, owing
to its cleanness.
I have estimated the black sand
to be one per cent, of the whole fill,
and it carries in gold values ranging
from twenty-three to thirty-two
dollars per ton, after amalgamation.
There are also several other
streams flowing into the Thompson
river from the east, which are said
to carry gold ; but as I have not
had the opportunity to test them, I
am not able to verify the reports.
The wagon roads up   the   North
Thompson valley are in   good   condition, affording excellent   facilities
for moving machinery.
Yours truly,
H. R. Bellamy,
Mining Engineer.
Nelson, Feb. 12th, 1900.
Report On  the El Progresso, ft ewark,
Sunlight and Stirling Claims,
Copper- Creek.
This group is situated on the north
shore of Kamloops Lake and is
therefore in an exceedingly favorable position to ship ore, as it can be
delivered on the C. P. R. for $1 a
ton or less in large quantities ex
deeding a carload. Freight and
treatment are,   Trail   $11, Tacoma; KAMLOOPS -MINING GAZETTE.
about $10. The group consists of
the Newark, El Progresso, Sunlight
and Stirling claims, estimated to
contain 150 acres. In the direction
found they will have a length of
3,000 feel. The area is mostly 200
to 800 feet above the lake, but a
small portion is on a low flat adjoining it. The work done consists of a
number of prospect holes and open
cuts on the Newark and Sunlight,
and on the El Progresso a tunnel 53
feet long which is approached by an
opencut 30 feet long which is mostly
in a vein, and at the mouth of the
drift is 21 feet deep, from the bottom
of which a cross-cut is driven west
eight feet.
The deposit disclosed by these
works is a contact of basalt and
porphyry carrying copper. The
total width is unknown, as the east
wall has not been found. The west
side of the ore body is largely
quartz, which follows the basalt,
the eastern side being composed of
narrow streaks of high grade ramifying through the porphyry. Be
tween these the porphyrv carries
copper disseminated through it, and
there is some decomposed material
which is gradually turning into ore
as it becomes solid.
In- the shaft there is a. quartz vein
a foot wide, which yields copper 5%
a..d gold $8. At present prices this
means $19 a ton. In the end of the
tunnel the western portion which
ctrries copper is nearly three feet
wide and averages 1% copper, with
$9 gold and 5 ounces of silver, value
$3, total gold and silver $12.
The ore as it is in the shaft would
cost the mine $7 per ton, (A) as it is
in the drift $2 (B). This would
leave in the former case $12 net per
ton, in the latter $7 to pay foi treat
ment and shipping. In the second
case there would be nearly three
times as much ore available, although the profit per ton would be
With a twenty five-ton mill concentration should not cost more
than $1 per ton, so that if the ore
were concentrated 10 to 1, there
would be about $2.25 to deduct for
freight, concentration and treatment in addition to cost of mining
$7, leaving $9.75 net. The ore in
the tunnel would not cost more to
deal with, which would leave $7.75,
besides the value of any copper recovered.
At least eight other veins are
known on the property. They have
not been tested, but an assay from
one yields gold $4.50, silver .70 and
about 8% copper worth $16 net.
These run parallel to those worked
and should be tapped by a cross-cut
from tl e main drift. There are
doubtless many others, and the
Tenderfoot veins must be found in
the Stirling. Drifting costs $6 and
sinking (9x5) $18 per foot. I believe that $1,500 expended will show
this group to be a most valuable
property. I consider the property
now worth for cash $10,000^ and
much more on t\ bond. This is a
low estimate.
Local Claims.  •+•
The Python Mine.
To the Python mine belongs the
credit of being the first mineral
claim on what is known as Coal
Hill ; for it was located July 27,
1896, and recorded two days later.
It is,  therefore,   so   to speak,  the V
father of the Kamloops copper-gold
mining camp, and as such is being
watched with interest by mining'
men. It is owned and being developed by the Python Mining Company, Ltd., who also own the
Python Fraction, the Noonday, Calumet and Copper Head claims, all
adjoining. This discovery, the first
known copper occurrence in the district, was made by Louis Victor Guil-
lame, a local stockman, while hunting horses on the range. His horse
kicked up a piece of very heavily
copper-stained rock, which, when
broken, was bright with copper
pyrites. This was shown to local
people, and such interest did it
arouse that cash offers were quickly
mad,e for the disclosure of the location, but were refused. The discoverer, who had staked the claim
himself, failed to record it, and
shortly afterwards it was discovered
by other prospectors, who had been
attracted to the district by the excitement. It is prettily situated on
the north slope of the ridge known
as Coal Hill, at an elevation of some
2,000 feet above Kamloops, and from
its shaft house a remarkable and
beautiful view of the ' Thompson
Valley can be obtained. It is one of
the nearest mines to Kamloops located up to the present. As the
crow flies it is situated three and a
half miles southwest and some four
and a half miles of road from the
The Python vein has been traced
by a series of surface cross-cuts aggregating over 400 feet in length,
- with a depth of from 3 to 10 feet,
showing the vein of grossan to be
fn m 50 to 60 feet wide in places, all
c irrying more or less gold and copper carbonates for a distance of six
thousand feet on the Python and
adjoining properties. On the Python
claims ten full claims and a fraction
are located on the vein, the other
claims being situated lower down
the hill, and yield excellent tunnel
and mill sites.
The Hilltop Mine. j£g|
The Hilltop mineral claim is situated near Tranquille. This is a
gold-quartz proposition. The quartz
is massive and assays run from $1
to $14 per ton. A tunnel is being
driven which is all the way in
quarz. Two shifts are being worked,
and as soon as the tunnel is in a sufficient distance, a series of assays
will be taken, on the results of
which will depend the further development of the property. This
work is being done by Boillot Bros.,
representatives of the French Exploration Syndicate, a company who
are actively engaged in investigating several Kamloops properties at
the present time. The company
have already made several purchases, and if their operations bring
good results, they purpose investing
more heavily. It is interesting to
note that this company, formed in
the first place for operations in the
Klondike, were inducted by Mr.
O. S. Batchelor, who met the Boillot
Bros, in Dawson City, to stay a few
days in the Kamloops camp and look
around, They were so impressed
with what they saw that they returned to Kamloops soon afterwards
and secured their present holdings.
Mr. H. R. Bellamy states that he
expects to place a dredge on the
North Thompson in the early .spring,
although there is a possibility of
delay owing i o unsettled conditions r
in England, brought about by the
South African war. In this issue is
an interesting article written by
Mr. Bellamy regarding the North
Thompson as a gold bearing stream.

We have always been noted for the fine quality of our
work—that's why we are always
busy. Cheap and inferior printing costs the same as good printing, therefore why not get the
best. Our prices are always reasonable. Always remember that
good printing, like good eggs,
may be spoiled in the setting.
It is the setting that receives our
i^<~&>~$~*~*~*~*~s~9 greatest care, combined with
first-class press work. If in need of fine printing, tele-
graph, telephone or write us, as we are never too busv ;
to attend to all orders.
