Shaft on Saddle Property Being Sunk in
Good Ore
The shaft being sunk on the
Saddle property at Hastings Arm
oontiniies in good ore states Mr. P.
E. Peterson who is in charge of
At the point where the shaft was
commenced, the ore on the surface
was 18 inoheB wide. The shaft
is now down 20 feet, and the vein
varies in width from 12 to 18
inohes the entire distance.
The oharaoter of the ore is a high
grade galena carrying silver gold
and copper values. The quartz on
both walls also carry good values.
The ore vein has been exposed on
the surface for a distanoe of 800
feet, and varies from 3 to 6 feet
wide. Both walls are well defined
and numerous branch veins join
the main vein.
The high grade, which is on the
hanging wall side of the vein varies in width from 3 feet to a few
inches, the average width of what
has been exposed is about 14 inohes.
It presents every indication of
going to a great depth, and development work will be prosecuted
with all possible speed.
The vein is on the contact of the
granite and greenstone, with
greenstone forming the hanging
wall, aud iu places granite forming
the footwall.
The Saddle property is at an elevation of 4000 feet, right above
Hastings Arm, and a tramline oan
be constructed to tidewater, when
ore shipments commence at a small
cost. It is ideally located for oheap
mining and shipping of ore.
The Saddle is being:'developed
by the Silver Crest Mines Ltd. of
Vancouver, who have an option on
it. They also have an option on
the Silver Crest Group at Stewart,
whioh joins the Big Missouri on
the north.
Mr. Peterson is in charge of operations at both properties, and is
leaving for Stewart this week to
oommenoe operations. He is well
acquainted with the north. He
was in oharge of the pilot concentrating mill at Anyox 3 years and
during that time the successful
solution of treating the Hidden
Creek ores was worked out, which
resulted in the construction of the
present huge mill.
He later held the position of
superintendent at the Big Missouri,
and was successful in locating the
ore bodies that placed the company
in suoh a favorable position.
Before ooming to British Columbia 11 years ago, Mr. Peterson held
responsible positions with the
Anaconda Copper Co. the W. A.
Clarke interests, and the Butte
and Superior Mining Co.
He is now in partnership with
Mr. W. Brewer, late resident engineer for No. 6 mineral distriot.
Mr. Brewer is one of the best mining engineers of the province, and
the two form a combination hard
to beat, and their servioes will be
in great demand by those seeking
advioe on mining and milling matters.
Chamber of Mines Will
Send Ore Display
The regular monthly meeting of
the Alioe Arm branoh of the
British Columbia Chamber of Mines
was held in the Anglican Church
on Monday evening.
President O. Evindson presided
and much important business was
disposed of.
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read hy seoretary A.
D. York, and also correspondence.
The forwarding of an ore display
to the Vancouver Exhibition was
disoussed at length, and it was deoided to spare no efforts in sending
a display that would be a credit to
the Alice Arm distriot.
All those present pledged themselves to interview mining property
owners, and urge upon them the
necessity of bringing out a sample
of their ore.
It was pointed out by the ohair-
mau that although a large number
of samples had been sent to Vancouver at different times. These
had all been made good use of.
They had been distributed by the
Chamber of Mines throughout the
world, some going to the Vatioian
at Rome, others to London, while
San Francisco, and other large
African oities had been sent
samples for permanent exhibition
It was therefore necessary that
new samples be forthcoming, so
that Alice Arm would be represented at the Vancouver Exhibition, and new samples available
for shipping to other points, and
also enlarge the permanent) display
at the headquarters of the Vancouver Chamber of Mines.
In reply to a question from H,
Fowler in regard to payment of
accounts in connection with the
visit of the Vancouver Board of
Trade, the secretary stated that
cheques would be mailed the following day.

Latest Ore Strike on
Tiger Enhances
That the Tiger property contains
high grade silver ore equal to any
yet' found in the district, in addition
to large bodies of milling ore, was
verified last Saturday when Ed.
Pickett, the owner, came down with
several spectacular samples. The
samples are impregnated with ruby
silver, and also massive flakes of
native silver.
The last find was made in a drift
from the main tunnel, and the whole
face of the drjft .is now in ore.
The.ajain tunnel is 140 feet in
length and the depth obtained on
the ore is 140 feet. Four drifts
have been driven from this tunnel
in order to locate the ore body which
is faulted into four sections. Every
one of these faulted sections have
been located, and each carries first
class ore.
The width of the ore body is from
6 feet to IS feet wide, with an average width of 10 feet. The whole
body is composed of a good grade
of milling ore with shoots of extremely high grade running through it.
Enough ore has already been determined to justify the erection of a
concentrating mill. As the chief
values are in ruby silver, with native
silver ranking second, without copper values, it is an ideal cyanide
The Tiger joins the Toric on the
north. It is ideally situated for the
erection of an aerial tramway, and
is considered one of the most promising properties in the district.
Accident Causes Loss of
An accident which occasioned unusual results occurred on Friday
morning. Arthur Stratford who
is employed by the Toric Mines Co.
was carrying a bag of nails along
the road near the upper Kitsault
suspension bridge, when a rock
rolled from the bluff and struck him
on the back of his head. He disappeared and it was thought that
he had fallen in the river as the bag
of nails was lying on the edge of the
steep bank.
Search parties were organized to
comb the river but without avail.
On Saturday night he returned to
the Toric camp. The blow on the
head had caused a lapse of memory
and he had wandered away in the
woods. He was taken to Anyox
Hospital to receive medical attention.
On Thursday morning of last week
while Harry Fowler of Alice Arm
was on the Stewart wharf he noticed a body floating on the water. He
called the attention of Capt. Hunter
of the Griffco to the fact and they
launched a boat and brought him
ashore. The body is believed to be
Mike Cassidy of Stewart, who mysteriously disappeared about six
weeks ago. The body was commencing to be decomposed. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Friday.   July   22   1927

The retirement of Hon. John
Oliver from the premiership of
British Columbia is something that
is deplored by everyone in the
province, irrespective of their political leanings. The life of the
retiring premier has been one of
hard work, and now that the time
has arrived for him to relinquish
his arduous political duties, and
spend the evening of his life amid
the pleasant surroundings of his
Delta farm. The Hon. John
Oliver is of a rugged nature, with
an indomitable spirit. During the
pioneer days of the province he
hewed out a beautiful ranch and
home from the wilds. He fought
his way up the ladder of success,
step by step, until he attained the
highest political honors that could
be gained in the province. He
was an open-handed fighter, blunt
and to the point in his speech.
He called a spade, a spade, and
subterfuge was not employed by
him in dealing with attacks of his
political enimies.
In reviewing the life of the Hon.
John Oliver, a good many of us
could profit thereby. Instead of
packing a permanent grouch and
bewailing the hard times, it would
be much better for ourselves, and
the province if we put our shoulder
to the wheel and pushed. Not a
little half-hearted push, but a continual one. If you think you are
wasting your time in any one
locality, get into one where you
have full scope for your ambitions.
If you think that you can gain
success quicker in any other occupation, change. If you are a
square peg trying to fit yourself in
a round hole, you are wasting your
time, and wasted time is valuable
money thrown away.
Every day in every way Alice
Arm is becoming a better place to
live in, and every day the future of
the camp is brighter. Here is the
ideal place for those whose ambitions are lofty, and who follow
mining as their means of livlihood.
Nowhere on the continent are such
splendid opportunities offered to
wrest from mother earth a fortune.
Here one has fiijl scope to carry
his elaborate plans to success. Had
Mining Announcement
A partnership which should
prove of great interest and benefit
to the mining public has just been
entered into by Mr. William Brewer, lite Resident Engineer for No.
6 Mineral District, member of the
Association of Professional Engineers, Province of British Columbia,
and Mr. P. E. Peterson, E. M.,
Montana School of Mines, also a
member of the Association of Professional . Engineers, Province of
British Columbia.
Messrs. Brewer and Peterson
are also members of the Canadian
Institute of Mining and Metallurgy
as well as of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical
The partnership is formed with
offices in Victoria and Vancouver
as Consulting Engineers, designers
and builders of concentrating mills,
mine management and advisers as
to the proper methods of treatment
of ores, assaying and research work
in general.

Britannia Constructs a
New Haulage Tunnel
The main haulage tunnel on the
2,700 level at the Britannia mine
has made connection with the mine
workings and holed perfectly. The
tunnel now is being equipped and
connected with ore passes; it will
be about six months before it can
be used for the transportation of
ore. With the tunnel available
next winter, the necessity of maintaining 3/4 miles of outside railway track free from snow will be
eliminated. By slightly increasing
the grinding aud flotation equipment, the rated capacity of the
mill has been increased to 4,000
tons of ore per day; in fact, in a
recent trial run 4,136 tons of dry
ore was milled in a day. The previous capacity of the plant was
3000 tons.
It's easy to do a lot of good things
and not get any praise, but it's
hard to make one false step and
then be bitterly condemned by
people who have no mortal right
to do so.
Alice Arm been in existence when
John Oliver was a young man he
probably would have made his
home here, and climbed to the
pinnacle of success, with mining as
his chief occupation instead of
farming. This district offers the
same golden opportunib«tr«s did
the Delta district forty yeafs. ago,
and it is up to us to all put our
shoulder to the wheel, and realize
our hopes and ambitions. — ■•

The Alice Arm branch of the B.
C. Chamber of Mines would appreciate the co-operation of mining
property owners in assembling an
ore display for the Vancouver exhibition. This is one of the ohief
mining camps of the province and
we must be represented. It is not
necessary to pack the sample to
town. If a pack train is not going
to your property, leave it on the
trail, and when they pass they will
if notified, pick it up and see that
it reaches town. Please label your
sample. All samples should reach
Alice Arm not later than the first
week in August. A good ore display is the best advertising we can
get and it does not cost the property owner one cent.
