Big Ore Body Being Cut
Through on The
The orosscut tunnel being driven
on the Eagle by the Kitsault-Eagle
Silver Mines Ltd. has out through
22 feet of ore, and the wall has not
yet been reached. The tunnel is
in 80 feet, and is being pushed as
rapidly as possible.
The ore is composed of silver,
copper and gold, and a big tonnage,
is being developed. This ore body
is known as the No. 1. With the
extension of the tunnel of an
additional 80 feet it is
expeoted to encounter another ore
body known as No. 2.
Development work on the Silver
Cord, which is being developed by
the Kitsault-Eagle Co. is being
carried on uninterruptedly. The
No. 2 tunnel has been commenced.
This tunnel is 150 feet lower elevation than the one driven last
winter, and when driven 300 feet
a depth of 250 feet-will be obtained
ou the ore body.
The success attained in driving
the upper tunnel has made it
necessary to obtain greater depth,
and when this has been accomp'
lished it will be an easy matter to
block out a large tonnage of ore,
The Silver Cord is a promising
property. The ore carries values
in lead, zinc, silver and gold. Big
bodies are known to exist, and
proving up these at depth will
result in the birth of a big mine.
Work on the trail to the Silver
Cord was suspended during the
week, but as soon as an examination has been made by W. A. Talbot, government engineer it is expected that work will be resumed.
Eight miles of trail have been
built this year and two bridges
The amount of development
work done on the LeRoy depends
on what date the trail is completed. It is planned by the company
to do considerable work this year
if transportation facilities to the
property can be seoured.
Outsider and Golkeish Mines
Shipped Considerable Ore
Last year the Outsider mine at
Maple Bay shipped 34,729 tons of
ore to Anyox smelter, which yielded
1,036,113 pounds of copper. The
Golkeish mine shipped 6,212 tons
of ore, which yielded 570 ozs gold
and 3,418 ozs. silver. Both these
properties are operated by the
Granby Co.
Big Tonnage Mined Anyox
The total tonnage of ore mined
at Anyox last year was 1,211,619
tons, all from Hidden Creek mine.
Of this 604,398 tons were smelted
and 602,015 tons milled. The ore
milled produced 52,840 tons of concentrates.
E. C. Perry arrived on Monday

Vanguard, Copper Cliff,
and Red Point all
Being Developed
Homestake To Be Developed
The Victor Spencer interests, of
Vanoouver, who last year bonded
the Red Point, Vanguard, Home-
stake and Copper Cliff mining
properties have their year's programme of work well under way.
On Tuesday the compressor plant
recently installed at the Red Point
was put in operation. After a few
rounds have been put in on the
No. 1. body about 50 feet from the
portal of the tunnel, the drill will
be put to work extending the main
crosscut tunnel that up to now has
been driven by hand. This tunnel
will be driven until the big ore
body known as No. 2. has been cut
which it is expeoted will be done at
about an additional 100 feet. At the
present time the tunnel is in about
325 feet.
A contract for a tunnel 100 feet
in length was commenced this week
on the Copper Cliff property. The
contract was taken by Jens Larson,
an experienced hard rock man of
the district. If success is attained
in the driving of this tunnel it will
probably be extended for a further
distance and future plans will then
be made regarding development.
Development of the Homestake
has not yet been commenced. An
examination is being made and it
is expected that work will be commenced between the 20th. aud 25th
of this month.
The tunnel on the Vanguard,
150 feet in length, for which a
contract was recently let, is now
well advanced.

Sensational Ore Strikes
This Week
Just as the forms of type were
being made up to be rushed to the
presses, news was received at the
Herald office from official sources
that sensational ore had been encountered at the Esperanza mine
and the Tiger.
The Esperanza ore was encountered in the old workings.
The Tiger ore was hit in the tunnel that is being driven by Ed.
Pickett, and who was confident that
he would locate it, after a careful
study of the ground, on the surface.

Two Feet of High Grade
Silver Ore Mined
at Wolf
The man who dodges from one
job to another, or who scratches a
little dirt from one mineral claim
and jumps to another, generally
finishes where he started. But
those who put their heart and soul
into one big idea are those who
generally win.
Under the head of the latter are
J. Fiva and P. Peterson, who for
nearly two years have developed
the Wolf mine, which is about
three minutes walk from Alice
After doing considerable work on
the surface incidentally taking off
11 tons of high grade ore they
drove a long tunnel to reach it
underground. This they did and
commenced drifting on the ore to
the north. They mined considerable ore, driving an upraise through
to the surface, in following the ore,
a distance of 70 feet.
Ventilation being provided,
they changed the scene of their
activities, and commenced drifting
on the ore to the south. Here it
was that they got real results, for
the vein widened out to a width of
over two feet of tbe finest silver
ore ever encountered underground,
except in a very few cases. The
walls of the vein are well defined,
and its persistency is shown when
it can be traced on the surface a
distance of 1600 feet.
The ore carries native, ruby and
brittle silver and is very spectacular. After almost two years of
hard muscular work, the hopes of
the operators are being realized
and a high grade mine right at our
doors, will, through their perseverance, become an asset to the distriot of considerable importance.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher,
If the Alice Arm branch of the
British Columbia Chamber of
Mines is to send an ore exhibit to
the Vancouver Exhibition it is time
arrangements were made for th'
collecting of specimens. At th
time of writing it is problematic
whether a display will be sent or
not. It takes considerable labor to
bring large specimens from the hills
each year, but that should not be a
handicap, as it is impossible to get
results unless labor is expended, not
only in mining but in every other
business. Advertising our mineral
riches with ore specimens is a necessity, but whether the best results
can be obtained from a home display or shipping them out is a
matter that should be settled at an
early date.
The copper market is in one of
its doldrums. The best informed
copper men are confident, however,
that the slump is not permanent,
and that the red metal will soon
demand prices that will place it
among the most attractive metals.
Meanwhile, copper companies are
reducing their expenditures to the
minimum, in order to tide them
over the dull period. When this
has passed an expansion of their
activities can be confidently looked
for. That the future is encouraging can be judged from the fact
that large deposits are being developed at Alice Arm, Stewart and
Vancouver Island, by companies
who know mining and can read
the future as clearly as anyone
connected with the industry.
Whaf are the future prospects of
the mining industry of Alice Arm?
is a question often asked us these
days, often verbally and sometimes
written. To which we reply:
They were never better. More
properties are operating this year
than ever before. More money is
being expended and excellent
results are being attained. The
prosperity of the camp will increase
each year, the final result of which
will be a permanent payroll of
considerable dimensions. We do
not anticipate a wild hysterical
boom, but progress seems to be
following the lines of a steady
yearly improvement, built on   a
Consumption of Copper
Per Capita Increases
On the average each person in
tlie United States "used" 15.31 lb.
of oopper during 1926, compared
with 14.54 lb, in 1925, with 13.50
lb. ill 1924, and only 8.49 lb. in
1921. The consumption in both
1919 and 1920 was greater than in
1921, however, These estimates
are made by tlie American Bureau
of Metal Statistics and are published in the 1926 Year Book, just
oil' tho press,
The figures in the accompanying
table are derived from reports of
consumers and include secondary
metal as well as virgin production.
Iu the last seven years the Bureau
estimates that total manufacturers
have taken 4,913,283 tons of copper
whereas deliveries during the same
period were 4,753,481. The apparent discrepancy is accounted for in
large part by the use of secondary

District's Mining Inspector Commended
Public officials who render val
liable service to the community too
often fail to see it appreciated. It
gives us pleasure to express the
esteem in which T. J. Shenton,
Inspector of Mines for northern
British Columbia, is held by operators iii his district. While conscien
tious and fearless in the execution
of his duties, he is ever ready to
lend a helping hand in the solution
of problems confronting the mines
under his jurisdiction and has on
several occasions shown the man
agement how to meet and overcome
difficulties met with in the course
of operation of properties under
their charge.—Mining & Industrial
Agriculture, for so many yearsof
paramount importance in Canada,
has been largely supplanted by
solid foundation. Every mining
company now operating is receiving full value for money expended.
The money is being invested in
powder and steel instead of luxurious office suites in Vancouver.
The hills of Alice Arm contain too
much ore for the camp to stand
still. It is bound to grow and
grow fast.

of 1926, show an
Aggregate Value of $988,108,470
The substantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following
figures, which show the value of production far successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895, inclusive $94,547,241; forfive years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years-

Production Last Ten Years, $429,547,755
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done
are described in some one of the Annual Keports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
mining investments should refer to such reports. They are available without charge on application
to the Department of Mines, Victoria, B. C. Reports covering each of the six mineral Survey
Districts are published separately, and are available on application. Reports of the Geological

Provincial Election May
Shortly be Held
The death of Dr. Rothwell, Liberal member for New Westminster
in the Legislature, has again revived the possibility of a provincial
general election. The matter it is
understood will be discussed by the
government next week and a definite decision arrived at.
It is thought that the present
time may be an auspicious one for
general election as the government
stands well throughout the country
and supporters of the administration feel sure of it being again returned, should an appeal be taken
It is possible that Premier Oliver
may retire before the election takes
place and that the cabinet will be
reorganized under a now premier
but who that premier is to bo is
scarcely suggested. The choice
seems to lie between Hon. T. D.
Pattullo, minister of lands, Hon.
A. M. Manson, attorney general,
and Dr. McLean, ministerof finance
who has been acting premier during the absence of Mr. Oliver.

Will an election be held this
year? is the thought uppermost in
the minds of leading looal leaders
of political parties. It is becoming
tlie general opinion throughout
the province that a general election will take place this year, and
the different parties have named
theircandidates. Who will oppose
the sitting member, H. F. Kergin
in the interests of the conservatives
has not yet been made public
J. E. Merryfield, a pioneer business man of Prince Rupert, and
now of Vancouver, who until recently was provincial organizer for
the conservative party and now in
insurance, spent several days in
Anyox and Alice Arm during the
week end.
The advertising columns of the
Herald is the surest way of broad,
casting your message, whether it is
a house or phonograph for sale; a
dance to be held, or anything you
wish the public to know about. A
dollar or two invested in advertising
is the biggest dividend payer on
record, especially where tickets are
sold for admission to a dance or
other social event. Try and be convinced. Spend one dollar and pick
up ten.
