Mining Methods,  Etc.
Practiced at Anyox by
the Granby Co.
During the recent convention of
the Canadian Milling Institute,
which was held at Trait, a very
interesting paper was presented by
Mr; L. R. Clapp, formerly assistant
general manager at Anyox and now
general manager at Copper Moun-1
tain, The paper dealt with mining
conditions at Anyox, and an outline
of the various departments operated by the Granby Co., at Anyox.
Following are a few of the subjects dealt with by Mr. Clapp, and
will prove interesting reading to a
large number of our readers.
General Outline
"At Anyox, the Granby. Company is mining and smelting
directly i in blast furnaces, about
3,000 tons a day of « heavy pyrite
oopper ore, which barries perhaps 2
per oent of copper, and 30/50e. per
ton iu gold and silver. /To carry
on these essential operations, it also
operates a water power plant of
4'hput 10,000 k. w. capacity with
a 5,000 k. w. auxiliary steam plant.
r It produces about 60,000 tons a year
of coke from by- piMuc't^ekeoveisii1
from which it also obtains,and sells
about 2,000,000 pounds a year of
ammonia and ammonia salts, 500,-
OO'O gals, of tar, and 160,000 gals,
of' motor benzol; it operates an
electric railway handling about
6000 ton miles of material eaoh day
it has a well equipped iron and
brass foundry, extensive blacksmith
machine, boiler, car repair, and carpenter shops,"
.   Diamond Drill used for
"Nearly 15,000,000 tons of, ore
has so far been developed in seven
qrebodies, of which oyer 13,000,000
tons have an average copper content of 2.14 per cent. The gold!
and silver values vary from about
12c in No. 3. ore body, to 90 cents
per ton in No. 5. Chalcopyrite is
the only oopper mineral of conse-
'.. quence, and is intimately mixed
with both pyrite and pyrhotite.
Zinc blends and arsenopyrite are
found in very small amounts." t •
"Only three of the seven ore bpd-
.ies so far developed showed any
considerable outcrop on the surface.
The others have been encountered
by diamond drilling and lie, usually
under an overhanging curtain of
argillites. Practically all the prospecting for a new ore, and also
the laying out of development work
is done with the diamond drill, and
a total of about 27 miles of diamond
drill cores have been made to date.
The rock conditions are very favorably for this type of work. Drilling
is slow on account of the extreme
hardness of the sijioified portions of
the ore bodies, but coring is most
satisfactory and is very seldom that
100 per cent, cores for the footage
drill is not obtainable. The work
is all done on contract by a firm of
diamond drill .men from Spokane,
and overall costs average from $2.00
Good Strike of Ore Made
on Toric Property
Mr. J. Strombeek, who has spent
considerable time this year on the
Toric property doing development
work, arrived in town on Thursday, having completed the season's
work. Most of the work done this
year on the Torio has been on what
is known as the No. 1. Ledge. A
tunnel was commenced on this ledge
to get underneath some high grade
surfaoe showings located two years
.ago. Samples taken from this ore
body gave the exceptionally high
returns of 9000 ozs. silver per ton
The tunnel Was started on an
ore vein one foot wide, and at a
distance of thirty feet from the
portal this vein widened to five
feet in- width* The vein has a dip
of about 70 degrees, and the latter
part of the tunnel was driven on
the hanging wall.
The ore is composed of galena,
argentite and native silver the latter being found in small
throughout.the ore.        - -'-.'
This No. 1. ledge can be traced
on the surface for over 400 feet,
and samples taken from open outs
have given returns pf 30 ozs. in
sih'er per ton. The ore found in
the tunnel, However," carries dtJJMdr-
erable more silver, and samples will
be sent out for * assaying. This is
the first tunnel driven on this ledge
and the results obtained this year
are very encouraging, and an early
start Will be made with develop
ment work next spring.
The Toric practically joins the
Dolly Varden, and is on the yeast
side of the Kitsault river. This
last strike was made at a distance
of only 125 feet elevation above the
railroad grade to the Wolf, so that
should the Dolly Varden railroad be
operating next year, the ohances
are good that the Toric will be
shipping ore.
Two more ore ledges, exist on the
Toric, the No. 2 being at an elevation of 60 feet above No. 1. and
paralleling it in a north-easterly
and sonth-westerly direotion.
: No. 3. ledge is at an elevation of
1000 feet above No. 2. and oan be
traced on the surface for over 900
feet. Considerable work has been
done on both theseledges with good
results. .-,
Interesting Debate Held
at Alice Arm
The first debate to be held this
season was given at the Anglican
Churoh, on Tuesday evening, under
the auspices of the Alice Arm
Sooial League.
A large number of people were
present and a very interesting
evening was spent, by everyone
both the speakers, and. the audience;,
The subjeot" debated was:
"Resolved thatFederat government
should own and operate all railways
in Canada."     Speakers for   the
to $2.50 per foot."
Novel Method used in Diamond
Drill Work
"Core records have been qarefully
preserved, and when assays   are
made, the core is carefully split
longitudinally,   and   half   being
ground lip for assay pulp, and the
other half preserved for geological
record*   In this way they have a
complete and easily available record
of practically every hole that has
been drilled on the property since
the start.   The assay samples are
divided into 5 foot intervals-through

affirmative were: C Drennan, Geo.
Bruggy, E. MoSs.| Negative: C. P.
Riel, T W. Falepijer. J. Auderson.
The ohair was iaooupied by Al.
Falconer. -
Mr. E. Moss opened the argument for the affirmative, aiid
claimed that private ownership was
not to the best interests of the
people of Canada. |'i That the C. P.
R. were using! all their influence to
discredit the National Railways,
and were holding lip the oountry's
progress by high rates, especially in
the west
Mr. J. Anderson was the next
speaker, and stated that it was
impossible for any government to
proouregoodmaftfeiJiJiueufc; As each
government, which came into power
were apt to change managements
and disrupt the whole system, and
favortism would play a large part
in official appointments.
Mr. C. Drennan then came to the
support of the affirmatives/ He
gave a short history of the countries operating their own railways
and stated that these countries
where government ownership prevailed the railways Were operated
more oheaply and gave as good
service as those countries,
operating railways by , private
ownership, If cities can operate
their own Street railways he said,
why can't the railways be successfully operated by the government.
Mr. T. W. Falconer was the next
speaker to take the* floor. In defending private ownership of railways he Stated that the C. P. R.
were paying big taxes all over the
provinces, while-the government
payed nothing on their railway
property. That the C. P. R. were
more than doing their share in
developing the Country, and that
$40,000,000 had been spent by the
government on the P. G. E. which
money had been thrown away.
Mr. G. Bruggy was strong in his
defence of government ownership
He said when the C. P. R. Company
were raising funds to build their
railway the bonds were guaranteed
by the government, and a large
part of the country was given them
The whole railroad system of Can
ada should be owned by the govern
ment, and the profits kept at home
for the benefit of the people.
Mr. C. P. Riel was the last speaker for the negative side, and he
spent a good portion of his time in
criticizing his opponents remarks,
He stated that no one could blame
the C. P. R. for holding the country
back, and from past and present

Jenkinson gave their Annual Hallowe'en Dance. The object being
to provide additional comforts for
the patients. From start to finish
everything was perfect; The Hall
was decorated in a manner which
testifies to the labor and ingenuity
of, these ladies. Black cats, weird
figures, fancy lighting effects, floral
decorations, effective stage setting,
and an orchestra which gave of its
best, all helped to make this, the
Hospital 1923 Dance, stand out
from all others as something
unique. The refreshments were
excellent, especially the ootfee,

V Mr. E. Moss made a five-minute
rebuttal, and extensively criticised

The Fire Hazard
The small fire which occurred
last Sunday in the centre of the
town of Alice Arm, again showed
the necessity of a water system, in
order that an adequate supply of
water can be available. Luckily
the fire was got under control
before causing much damage, but
the next time may be a different
story. Until a water main is laid
from Falls Creek to the town, property owners and others are running
a great risk. At present, the best
thing to do is for everyone to be
as careful as possible. Examine
your stove pipes occasionally to see
if they need replacing, and also
keep them clean. "Safety First"
should be the watchword of
everyone in Alice Arm. It is an
exceedingly easy matter at the
present time for a fire to quickly get
beyond control and a careless act
may be the means of a serious
Look Out for the Sharks
The newspapers recently carried
a pathetic story of an aged couple
who invested and lost $35,000 in
worthless stocks. It was every
cent they had in the world and all
of their lifetime savings. Their
money was fooled away from them
by the glittering promises of an
unscrupulous broker who promised
to make them millionaires. The
man is seventy years old and blind,
and today, he and his wife are penniless, and were it not for charity,
they would be hungry.
It is because the world is'full of
sharks absolutely without mercy
and full of people who believe that
they can get something for nothing
that* we print Editorials like this.
We are trying to warn our people
to keep hold of their money and
never make an investment without
the advise of a competent lawyer
or banker, and without being
absolutely sure that their lifetime
savings are being put
where they will be secure.    In
almost every neighbourhood there is
somebody who tried to get rich
too quickly and is now filled with
hopeless and bitter regret.
Are You Loyal?
And again we remind you that
this is a good town to live in, a good
place to trade, and good one to
keep your money in. But in time
it will cease to be either unless you
are as loyal to the town as it is to
you. See which merchants are
advertising in this paper and tell
them what you want.
Too Many Laws
We have too many laws. No
one knows the law in this country
now, and no one can keep from
violating some of the laws, There
may be a time ahead, when the
lawmakers will have the nerve to
abolish some laws, and then pass a
few,-just a few, to take their places.
Iron  Composed of Millions
of Tiny Magnets
Although iron is the commonest
metal known, and the most important
it has some very mysterious aspests.
With the exception of one or two
other metals, such as nickel, which
are but faintly magnetic, iron is the
only known metal with powers of
An ordinary piece of iron' is itself
nothing more or less than tiny magnets
Every atom of iron is a tiny magnet
with its own north and south pole.
But we do.not notice it because all
these tiny magnets are higgledy-piggledy;, as it were, and neutralise each
other's magnetism.
When a piece of iron is made into
a magnet, all these tiny magnets are
brought into line. That is, the north
pole of one tiny magnet joins on to the
south pole of the one next to it, and so
on. Thus, all the little bits of magnetism are added together and make one
powerful magnet.
That means that when a piece of iron
is magnetised, its whole internal
structure has been rearranged though
no difference can be seen. As a matter
of fact, when strongly magnetised a
piece of iron increases in length,
though of course to so little an extent
that only the most accurate instrument
can measure it. But if a bar of iron
720,000 feet long were strongly magnetised it would grow a foot in length!
When a bar of iron is suddenly magnetised or demagnetised, a faint
metalic clink can be heard in it. That
is the sound of the iron atoms suddenly
changing their positions.
If the bar oe magnetised and demagnetised very rapidly, the, friction
inside of the atoms moving will make
the bar hot. A piece of iron can be
made nearly red hot that way.
' There is another interesting fact
about iron. If it is heated above a
certain temperature, which is about

700 degrees Centigrade, it is no longer
capable of being attracted by a magnet.
When a length of; iron wire, white
hot is suspended and then left to cool
this curious process can be seen with
the eye. Slowly the wire cools and
becomes a dull red heat. Then, suddenly it becomes brilliantly hot again
witn'ont the aid of any outside heat at
This heat is caused merely by the
iron atoms rearranging themselves
again, and in the effort of doing so,
developing an internal heat that causes
a sudden rise in temperature.
Ore Runs $1000 to the
Gunny Sack
Mining camps throughout the province generally figure the value in tons,
but Rossland now figures by the gunny
sack. The old I. X. L. mine is now

'It has been our experience that
it is never safe to assume that a
diamond drill hole will run in the
direction in which it has been
started. No matter whether a
hole is vertical, flat, or inclined, it
always deviates from its original
course by an amount dependent on
the angle with the rock struoture
at which the hole is. drilled, by the
effect of gravity on the drill rod,
the presence of faults, slips, hard
patohes, eto. We have found that
the only dependable method is to
survey each hole, (usually at 100
foot intervals), before attempting
to plot it on our geological maps.
For, this we use a small drill hole
compass floating in warm gelatine
in a glass tube and attached to
several lengths of brass drill rod,
which is loxyered to the desired
point in the hole, and allowed to
remain there until the gelatine
cools and solidifies, thus fixing the
position of the compass needle.
The inclination of a hole is taken
at the same time, by the usual
hydrofluoric acid ring in the same
glass tube." ■',
One of the Systems Used in
Mining Ore
"The bulk of the mining at Anyox
however, has been done by a system
of , .underground glory-holing,
brought to the Granby Company
in the old days from the Michigan
iron country by Mr. W. ¥1
Williams aud the Swanson
brothers, who modified it to the
local Phoenix conditions and improved on it. This work was later
transferred to Anyox by Mr. John
Swanson, our present Mine Superintendent, and has'been perfected
by him there until it is a highly
economical and safe method of
mining large, hard ore bodies. It
oonsists essentially of spiral raises
which are started off from the top
of the chute raises and swing
around on a grade which is just
flat enough for a man to walk up
the trail. When  complete,   this
raise resembles nothing so much
as the impression left by a corkscrew, with a hollow oore and the
spiral trail left around the outside
of it from the bottom to the top.
At the extremities of the swings
of this spiral trail, connections are
made to manway raises, driven
through the pillars at either end of
the stope, to afford ventilation - and
easy access for powder and steel.
Upon completion of the first spiral,
depending upon the nature of the
ground, either a second spiral is
started, interlacing the first, or the
first spiral is gradually enlarged,
breaking always to the centre and
benching off, when desirable, the
shelves between the grooves in the
spiral.. The stope is drawn empty
eaoh day, and the; fall down the
irregular chute, aots to a considerable extent, as a rook crusher to
the larger slabs whioh are broken
off. When neoessary, a rib pf the
spiral oan be left as a strut aoross
the stope to support some heavy
ground, and this is usually drilled
and later, some means found to
reaoh it and blast it down."

The Crawford Transfer Company
are building a two storey, 24 t>y
40 blacksmith and repair shop on
Conway street between Fourth
and Fifth.
With more than twenty of the
best rook men of the northwest
whaling away on construction of
the new Stewart-Hyder road, the
contractors are running a race
against time, with every probability of winning their way through
to the old wharf before the "big
snow," which would foroe a cessation of the labor.
With a full face of high grade
ore in the drift being run both
ways on the east and west vein,
the Dunwell is making doubly sure
the certainty of becoming one of
the,big mines of the province, a
certainty which was apparent
when the vein was first crosscut in
No. 2 tunnel and an immense ore
body exposed to view.
The drift each way is following
the foot wall pf therein, the two
faces now being over seventy feet
apart, and leaving ten additional
feet of solid ore on the hangiug.
wall side. This ore has been heavily impregnated by secondary
enrichments, abounding in native,
argentite and ruby silver, besides
the original sulphides. Some of
the samples brought. to town look
like a display in* a jewelry store
