Alice Arm Mining Given
Prominence Recent Speech
Dr. H. T. James Expresses Opinion of Alice Arm District
Before Vancouver Chamber of Mines
One of the most instructive addresses given by any mining engineer at any time was that delivered
by Dr. H. T. James resident engineer for the north-western district,
before the Vancouver Chamber of
Mines recently.
Dr. James' speech was lengthy.
He went into details concerning
every district of his vast division,
which extends from the Yukon border in the north to Bella Coola in
the south. /
He gave an outline of geological
conditions and thoroughly explained
the extent of the Coast Batholith.
He was particularly impressed
with the possibilities of Alice Arm,
and below we have reprinted the
portion of his speech dealing with
this district.
We regret that the press of the
province failed to publish Dr. James'
speech, The Financial News of Vancouver was the only paper in the
province that published it, and to
them we are indebted for the following portion of the address.
The Alice Arm Camp: "I have
shown on the screen only the claims
immediately adjoining the Kitsault
and the lower part of the canal.
Many other properties have been
discovered up the Illiance, but I
have not been up there.
"Although this camp has been
in disrepute, I think it should receive more attention from the mining engineers and scouts. It is in
disrepute because the Dolly was
unfortunate and was shut down.
"It is one of the most interesting
camps one could wish to examine.
There are four distinct mineral
zones, each containing ve,ry little
more than one type of deposit. At
McGrath we have zinc mineralization; very little silver, very little
lead, very little gangue sulphides
very little pyrite, practically the
only sulphide is a nice sphalerite
and some of this looks very nice.
Forty-two olaims or more have
been staked and you can find zinc
on all. If zino were a little higher
in value, it would stand a fine
chance of developing into a zinc
property. The situation is ideal,
right at the head of the Canal and
the mountain slopes down to tidewater.
"On  the opposite side "of   the
river is another string of properties, in which the values are silver,
load and zinc. I must mention the
fact that the silver occurred at the
north end of the mountain, but
some of the showings are the typical
McGrath Mt. brown sphalerite in
slates, although they do get larger
bodies containing lead and silver.
As you go off to the north you get
into the silver-lead type which yon
find at the lower end of the Kitsault
on the western side of the railway.
The veins are generally small, but
they found very high grade ore,
ruby silver and a high grade type

of silver ore.
"The LaRose Mine: This company will do more work this coming
"The Wolf is a small property,
being worked by a few individuals
of Alice Arm.
"Farther north we find that same
time before the general inclusion of
the batholith, there was a wrinkling, which cut across the Upper
Kitoault. This brought another
series of rocks nearer the surface,
consisting of tufls, flows, etc., and
as erosion removed the slates, the
ore outcropped. That is proved to
be a very important feature of the
geology of the Alice Arm camp.
"In that series we have some of
the most important ore deposits of
the Alice Arm. On this side of the
railway we have what is known as
the Copper Belt, as Professor Turn-
hull named it, extending from the
right on up.
"We have the -Wild Cat, Van
Guard, Red Top, Lucky Strike and
others—in the main a copper mineralization with some gold values.
"On the other side of the line is
a string of silver properties, running from the railway on up, which
take the other branch of the structure aiid are entirely silver—the
Dolly Varden, the North Star and
the David Copperlield. On the
other side of the railway the Tiger,
the Toric and the Musketeer, Wolf,
Moose and Last Chance. The
Dolly Varden has not been working, but, on looking back through
the records you will find the Dolly
Varden worked only 300 feet of
the vein. They shipped only shipping ore: They didn't try to develop or didn't develop any milling

said to contain some promising ore
showings, and the big ore bodies
of the Wolf are expected to extend
into it.
The Chance consists of six claims
and is owned by Archie McPhail
and Paddy Morely of Alice Ann.
It adjoins the Moose and contains
some large showings of silver ore.

That the flood tide of prosperity
has turned in favor of the mining
industry is shown by the mining
news carried in our columns last
week. That the Victor Spencer
interests have decided to operate
the Dolly Varden and Wolf mines
and are anxious to acquire adjacent
properties is sufficient evidence that
they have faith in the possibilities
of the camp, and their decision to
develop our latent riches has undoubtedly been arrived at from information supplied them by responsible mining engineers. The
successful development of these
properties to a producing basis, will
mean an enormous payroll, and will
be only one of the companies operating when the camp becomes fully
developed. Victor Spencer and
his associates are British Columbians. They have accumulated
their wealth in the province, and
they are anxions to aid the province's prosperity by developing its
buried treasure. We wish them
the best of luck in their enterprise.
The fact that the Mines Department, both Provincial and Federal
will make an exhaustive examination of the mineral resources of
Alice Arm during the present year
shows conclusively that these departments realize that in Alice Arm
district possibly lies one of the best
and biggest mineral deposits of the
province. For long weary years
the mining property owners have
waited patiently for such an examination as is promised this year,
and they have no fear of the decision the mining engineers and
geologists will arrive at if they are
given time to thoroughly explore
the whole district.
The decision of the people of
Anyox to organize baseball and
football leagues for the summer
months is good. The Anyox
Community League is doing its
utmost to encourage these sports,
and it lies with the people as a
whole to make it a success. Outdoor sports in a town such as
Anyox, where a large number of
young men are gathered together
within a small area is necessary,
youthful energies must find an ex-

ore. From more recent work in
that camp, we know there is a
good chance of finding milling ore.
According to Dr. Henderson, the
quartz sections have the best chance
of containing commercial ore.
"In the Toric, barite is practically the only gangue mineral and
although it is not a high grade
property it contains nice indications
of making a property. Although
the vein on the surface does'- not
show commercial ore, when they
got underground they found the
zone at the level where they cut it
was 70 feet thick. On top it is
about 100 feet wide. Whether it
is going to finish and there will be
nothing much of value below, we
don't know, but that kind of showing is very encouraging.
"North of this is the Tiger, which
is highly faulted similar to the
Dolly in type and contains apparently in places at least a nice grade
of milling ore and here again only
300 feet or less has been exposed
on the surface.
"It takes somebody with more
capital than a prospector to open
up this type of property.
"Farther north you find the
Musketeer, which has a number of
veins. The Wolf, of which Dr.
Henderson says the veins are 50
feet wide and 1500 feet long, and
everybody says contains a good
tonnage of commercial silver ore
and is surely worth looking at and
asking questions about.
"I would like to see some strong
company go in and take up that
Upper Kitsault Valley and see
what can be done. If these were
down near tidewater, individuals
could work a small tonnage proposition and probably make a profit
but the difficulty is transportation.
Some company strong enough to
take over the Dolly Varden railway
and handle the transportation is
what is required. None of the
small companies can do that. Not
only that, but it would make a
unit development of water power
and any other development of that

Speeding up Freight Service
'J'he   recent   Installation   of   Mack   Tractors   and
Lapeer Trailers by the Dominion Transport Company Limited, for the transfer of I.e.I. freight between the Canadian Pacific Place Viger freight sheds
and their outlying terminals in this city, was demonstrated before E. W. Beatty, Chairman and President, and other executives of the railway outside the
Windsor Street Station.
Mr. Beatty was specially interesteo in tne mechanism by which the trailer is connected up with
the tractor, This is done by the simple operation
of backing the tractor slowly into the trailer. Uncoupling is actuated from the tractor by the simple
moving of a lever. The President had these operations performed several times and expressed his appreciation of their simplicity.
Coupling and uncoupling of the trailer is operated
by means of a mechanism known as a fifth wheel
which is bolted to the tractor frame and upon which
the front end of the trailer rides, interlocks itself
mechanically with the trailer through the use of railroad type double locking jaw couplers. Brakes of
both the tractor and trailer are applied individually
and separately by the driver and are at all times
under his control. Were it possible for a trailer to
become disconnected from a tractor at any time when
in motion, the brakes of the former are automatically
applied bringing it almost immediately to a stop.
Through the use of a "Dolly" which consists of a
fifth wheel mounted on a pah- of road wheels, two
or more attendant trailers may be attached to one
tractor thereby forming a tractor train and by so
doing much increasing the total load capacity. With
the addition of the extra trailer wheels the total
weight of the vehicle and load is divided over a
greater road surface tire area, thus overcoming the
deteriorating effect of heavily loaded trucks on the
highways and city streets.
The capacity of the trailers used is 10,000 to
15,000 pounds with an inside dimension of approximately 16 feet long, 6V4 feet wide and 7 feet high.
The tractor is of the internationally known "Bull
Dog" type and Its draw-bar pull is far in excess of
anything that will be required of it, but was deemed
advisable to use In view of the heavy road conditions
prevailing in Montreal during the winter months.
While the tractor is of standard Mack design,
only the chassis Is so In the case of the trailer, tlie
tody being built and finished in the Transport com
pany's plant ln Montreal. The body Is of oak
throughout with a sheet metal covering and the whole
equipment ie highly finished in dark blue with red
wheels and undergear, the standard colors of the
company, making a very handsome appearance. The
centre side panels or sliding doors of the trailer as
well as the rear doors and front panel are decorated
with the Maple Leaf and Beaver, insignia of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. The doors of the tractor
bear the same crest. The Dominion Transport Company have at present nine trailers in operation and
will increase this number to twelve in the next few
weeks. Similar automotive equipment has been
ordered for use in Toronto by the company.
Mack Tractors and Lapeer trailers represent the
latest and most efficient method of handling freight.
It consists of spotting one or more trailers at strategic points where freight is to be picked up. When
the trailer is loaded the tractor calls for each in
turn, taking them to their respective destinations
under what ie known as the Shuttle System. By
this method no time is lost by full trailers waiting
to be moved, as they are operated on an hourly
schedule between each of the outlying freight depots and tbe central station, thereby giving the merchants and manufacturers of these outlying districts
the same despatch with their freight as those who
are more centrally located.
