Fifteen Feet Of Ore
Intersected In New
Crosscut At Toric
Hanging Wall In Main Cross-
Cut Not Yet Reached
The Torio property, whioh is being developed by the Consolidated
Homestake Mining and Development Go., will shortly be a proven
mine, if suoh is not already the
case. The development of the
Torio is unique in the annals of
mining history. Since the company started development work
about five months ago, 320 feet of
crosscut tunnel, and about 90 feet
of drifting have been done.
Mr. A. 0. H. Gerhardi, general
manager of the Homestake. Company, who arrived in Alice Arm
during the week, enroute to Vancouver, stated that in the first
crosscut tunnel driven, 58 feet of
ore has been intersected, and the
hanging wall has not yet been
reached. The ore in this tunnel is
composed chiefly of steel galena,
and considerable native silver is
also found throughout the ore.
In the new No. 1 West crosscut
tunnel, which is now being driven,
■ ar' which is situated' 50 feet west
or the main crosscut tunnel,1 15
feet of ore has been intersected to
date. It is even a better grade ol
ore than what was exposed in the
first 15 feet of the main crosscut
tunnel. Work on the tunnel is
still proceeding.
At no time since ore was en-
couutered, either in the main cross-
out tunnel, or No. 1 West, has the
drill failed to show native silver
ore with each round.
Present equipment at the mine
consists of a .Sullivan compressor,
aud a Sullivan drill, aud these are
•i giving first-class service and are
very satisfactory. An average of
about four feet of ground is broken
each day.
Supplies are on hand at the
mine that ensures uninterrupted
operations until the end of April or
middle of May, aud by that time
supplies will be able to go forward
over the Dolly Varden Railway.
Rich mines have been brought to
the production stage in British
Columbia, but generally at a considerable expense. The Toric,
however, bids fair to reverse this
prooedure. Under the efficient
management of Mr. A. G. H. Gerhardi, the cost of driving eaoh foot
of tunnel has cost only between
$12.00 and $13.00 per foot.
Coupled with this low cost of
development work is the fact that
only 220 feet of tunnelling was
necessary before the ore body was
encountered, and since that was
accomplished, the blocking out-of
ore has been oarried on.
At the present time a large body
of ore has been blocked out at an
initial outlay, and from the present
point of view a muoh larger body
will soon be proven up. The cost
of whioh will be small compared
with the development of numerous
other properties.

During Weei\
Owing to the inclement weather
which prevailed on Monday evening, the two basketball games
scheduled for the Mine Gymnasium
were postponed. Three games,
however, were staged at the Beach
The Rovers and Hustlers furnished the curtain raiser, which
resulted in a win for the former
22 to 12. High class defensive
work on the part of Ballion and
Simmons proved the stumbling
block for the losers. Gordon and
Buntaiu were the sharpshooters,
getting ten and eight respectively.
Dewar and Thomson were good for
the losers. The latter scoring
eight of his team's twelve points.
Tlie teams were: Hustlers,
Campbell, Dewar, Beabeau-2, Wil-

The Mine Seniors walked away
from the Coke Plant in the final
stages of the game, by the score of
33 to 18. The Coke plant finished
the first half in the lead, the score
being 11 to 8. But- they were
unable to stand the pace, and the
Miner's forged ahead.
Les. Lane was the outstanding
star, leading the soorers for the
evening with eleven points to his
credit. Stewart, Lane and Yorke
were put off via the four personal
foul route. Jack Cody made his
debut, turning out with the Coke
Plant. Jack is still as good as
ever and adds considerable strength
to his team.
Staines and Yorke turned in a
nice performance for the losers, as
did Halverson for the Mine.

New Mining Properties
Will Be Developed At
Alice Arm This Year
Outlook For Industry Is
The present year promises well
for the mining industry of Alice
Arm, and from present appearances it would seem that a real
start is to be again made. Since
the Dolly Varden mine closed
down in December 1920, the industry has been more or less stagnated. Almost everyone expected
that mining would not revive until
this property was again operating,
and they waited patiently for a
long time. Since there was no
immediate prospect of this property operating, it was evident
that the operation of other properties was necessary. Several
property owners have recently
given mining companies very easy
terms on their properties, and this
year will witness a larger number
of properties being developed than
has been the case since the excitement prevailed during the days
when the high grade was pouring
out of the Dolly Varden.
The property that is demanding
the greatest attention at the present time| is the Toric, whioh is
being developed by the Consolidated Homestake Mining and Development Co. The large amount
and richness of the ore that has
been proven on this property, in
such a short space of time has exceeded the hopes of the most optimistic. What was considered by
many as an indifferent surface
showing, has proven to be almost

While Alice Arm is a good
town in which to live, it is evident
that a few improvements would
considerably increase the comforts
of the citizens, and add considerably to its appearance, and the
improvements proposed would lay
the foundation of a permanent
and growing town. The biggest
handicap to a more prosperous
appearance, is the absence of a
townsite. We have floundered
along for the past ten years, building on the Indian Reserve and off
the Reserve, and the result is that
houses are dotted in every conceivable corner with no semblance
of order. Under present conditions, no one will expend any considerable amount of money in
building stores or dwelling houses,
or if they do, they are taking considerable risk, and the result of present conditions is that the upbuilding of an up-to-date town is being
held up. One of our most urgent
needs is a proper water supply,
but again present conditions call a
Halt on any scheme outlirpd, for
trie reason that if the Indian
Reserve is thrown open for town-
site—fcnd it undoubtedly will if the
town receives a boom— it is possible that a large amount of piping would be torn up when streets
are laid out. An adequate water
supply, both for domestic purposes
and for use in case of fire, is one
of our vital needs. It is something that should have been done
years ago. The problem should
be threshed out at an early date,
and before the end of the year we
should possess a supply of water
equal to the call of any emergency.
For ten long years the people of
the town have packed water both
winter and summer. They have
gone to the expense and labor of
installing pumps, which furnishes
an excellent supply of salt water
for long periods, and we are now
where we started ten years ago.
Are we going to continue this
ancient practice for the next ten
years, and at the same time take
the awful chance of a fire devastating the entire town? We have
had some narrow escapes, The
next fire may prove a catastrophe..

and produces most, when under
experienced direction and intelligent restraint.
Laughter has the approval of
the world. It is the sign of a
merry heart, and according to an

With the rest of Canada, including the heads of the C. P. R., talking about prosperity being just
round the corner, we can congratulate ourselves on living in a dis"
triet where prosperity is with us
all the time.

New Mining Properties Will
Be Developed At Alice Arm
This Year

a Bonanza underground. The big
ore, shoot that has been encountered proves conclusively that, as
we have stated before, that this
district needs mining men of good
judgement, who are not afraid to
take a chance.
Another property that will undoubtedly be developed this year
is the Standard, situated on MoGrath mountain, and recently
bonded to the Granby Consolidated Mining Smelting and Power
Co. Ltd. This property carries
ore running high iu zinc values.
It is adjacent to tide water, and
the cost of development work
should not be expensive.
Since high grade tungsten ore
has been discovered at the Esperanza—which is another property
close to Alice Arm—it is probable
that enlarged operations will be
carried out this year. In fact, it
will be a necessity, in order for
the owners to realize a good profit
on their operations.
Alice Arm will see a new mining company iu the field this year,
viz. The Kitsault Biver Mining
and Development Co., who will

enviable record, that not one mining company has lost a large

Why Not Play The Game
We try not to be critical but we
feel that we would like to express
our opinion through the kindness
of the press of the brand of basketball which is being played in
Anyox these days. It seems that
every Senior game ends with at
least one or two players being put
off the floor for rough play. From
a player's standpoint this is poor
sportsmanship and from the fan's
standpoint it is very uninteresting
and disagreeable to watch. The
girls' teams and the Intermediate
teams are all playing good basketball and it is very seldom that four
personal fouls are called on any
player in either the girls' or boys'
Intermediate leagues. However,
the senior league resemble rugby
players rather than basketball.
When thegameisnot played right it
creates bad feeling among the
players and the fans. We hope
that the Anyox senior basketball
players, two or three more especially get wise to themselves and cut
out the rough stuff, it ouly gets a
placer a bad name.
