Kitsault-Eagle Company
Strikes Ore on Sunrise
The big development tunnel being
driven on the Sunrise Group, on
McGrath mountain by the
Kitsault-Eagle Silver Mines Ltd.
has reached the ore body, for which
it is being driven. The ore was
encountered on Tuesday. It had
been driven into a distance of three
feet when the Herald received the
news on Wednesday evening. The
ore is spectacular, carrying high
lead and silver values, in addition
to zinc. The zinc values are not
so predominant in the tunnel as on
the surface.
The ore body was encountered at
a distance of 1020 feet from the
portal of the tunnel and has a vertical depth of 500 feet. The width
of the ore on the surface is 30 feet
and it is expected, judging from
present indications that this width
will be maintained at depth, and
probably surpassed.
The tunnel is being pushed with
all possible speed, and further particulars will be published in our
next issue.
It was expected that the ore
would be encountered after driving
about 1000 feet. It is therefore no
great surprise to officials of the
company that the objective has
been reached. The last 100 feet
has been driven through a heavy
mineralized formation, which does
not show on the surface.
The driving of the tunnel, which
was a big undertaking, as it was
the first tunnel driven on the
property, was watched with great
interest by mining men. Its success
causes a great deal of satisfaction
locally, and will stimulate interest
in the McGrath mountain section of
the district.
This tunnel holds the record of
being the longest and has the
greatest vertical depth of any tunnel in the i\\iae Arm district.

spite of many obstacles, such as
poor transportation facilities, has
persevered and uninterruptedly

The road from the upper Kitsault
River suspension bridge to the
Toric mine has been completed by
the Department of Public Works.
The road is 10 feet wide and has a

one. A bridge was also built in
order to eliminate a snow slide
coming down a gulch that had to
be traversed.

branches from the government trail
traversing the North-east fork valley. It is now possible to take
horses from Alice Arm through to
the property, on an easy grade.
The elevation of the camp is 1600
feet, and the distance from Alice
Arm is only about six miles.
A small crew of men is now doing
development work. It has been
decided to confine present develop
ment to the surface. More extensive development of the property
will be undertaken at a later date.

Anyox Scouts Enjoying
Camp Life
In spite of the juicy condition of
the weather that has prevailed
since the Anyox Scouts left for
summer camp all are having an
enjoyable time, during the short
periods between rainstorms. No
time is lost by the scouts in spreading through the woods or angling
for the succulent trout in the many
streams when the hose pip6 is out
of commission.
They have on several occasions
replenished the larder with fish.
To date, Second Laurence Kirby
holds the fishing record, having
caught enough to furnish a meal
for all hands.
During the earlier part, the
scouts were under canvas, but continued rains forced them to
abandon their tents. They are
now located in a commodious cabin
and all are comfortable.
It is hoped that before camp
breaks, better weather will prevail
so that many pleasant hikes can be
indulged in.

Mineral Production To

This Year
Bulletin Issued by Government Covers 1st. 6 Months
VICTORIA.—In issuing a bulletin summarising mining activities
in the province for the first half of
1929, Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister of mines, expressed his satisfaction at the thoroughly sound and
steadily expanding state of the mining industry of British Columbia.
In accord with his policy of giving
all available information on mining
to those interested, this bulletin
was prepared at the minister's
instructions to briefly review
the important features of mining in
the half-year period. It was compiled by John D. Galloway, provin-
dial mineralogist, and contains a
summary by that official, brief reports on their respective districts
by the resident engineers, and summary of coal production figures by
the chief inspector of mines.
The report of J. T. Mandy, resident engineer for No. 1 northwest
em district, shows that mining in
this district is extremely active. In
his report on the Naas River division, which includes Anyox and
Alioe Arm, he says:
"The Naas River Mining Division
promises in the near future to
strengthen its position as the most
important producing Division of the
district. Exploratory work by the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power Company at Anyox
and in neighboring areas is promising of extended operations by this
company. Healthy development is
under way in the Alice Arm section.
Renewed interest is being taken in
the promising prospects of the area
by examining engineers representing
strong operating companies. These
activities have greatly stimulated
the work of prospectors and claim-
owners. The future of the Alice
Arm district is brighter than it has
been for the last ten years."
Individual reports on several
mining properties in the Alice Arm
district is also given, and which,
on the whole, are very encouraging.
Reports of every resident mining engineer in the province is also
contained in the Bulletin, and they
show that mining is active through
out British Columbia.
Returns for the first six months
of the year indicate a new high re>
cord will be established for the
mineral production of the province
in 1929. An output for the whole
year valued at somewhat over $70,
000,000 is indicated, With prospecting, development and construction of new mining plants
and equipment proceeding at a
greater pace than ever before, a
continually expanding production
record seems assured for some
years to come.
The value of the mineral output
Present  Demand   For
Copper Will Be
n a reference to the work of the
Copper and Brass Research Association, the Manager, Mr. W. A.
Willis, stated that from a recent
survey it might be assumed that
within ten years 8,5000 miles of
trackage will be electrified as compared with 3,600 miles at present.
The extension will require 125,000,
000 pounds of oopper in addition to
the 100,000,000 pounds already in
use. Railroads now use 850,000,
000 pounds of copper annually, and the survey indicates
that this will be increased to 1,000.
000,000 pounds by 1940. Survey^
now are being made of the amount
of copper used by navies and mer-
channt marine. The general outlook is that there will be a sharp
annual increase in the amount of
copper consumed duriug the next
decade. The figures given refer to
copper iu both pure and alloyed
for the half year is estimated at
$35,256,063. This production rate
is expected to be easily maintained
or increased in the second half of
the year which will result in a mineral production of $70,000,000 'or
more for 1929, exceeding the previous reeord of $67,188,842 established in 1926.
The output in 1928 was valued at
$65,372,583, or at the rate of $32,-
686,291 for six months. The production for the first six months of
1929 shows, therefore, an increase
of 7.8 per cent. The tonnage of
ore treated was approximately 3,-
300,000 tons, showing an increased
rate as compared with 1928, the
previous record year. The speeding
up of output at the Britannia and
Hidden Creek mines mainly accounts
for this increase. Tbe average
gross value of the ore treated was
about $8.15 a ton.
The estimated silver output of
5,250,000 ounces is practically one-
half of the 1928 production and it is
expected that due to increased mining and milling of silver-lead-zinc
ores, the second half of the year will
show a higher figure.
The estimate of copper production of 51,000,000 pounds shows a
slightly higher rate of production
than during 1928. The increased
output was made by the Hidden
Creek and Copper mountain mines
of the Granby company, as the
Britannia rate of production was
practically the same as during 1928
Larger tonnages were treated by
these three mines but it is apparent
that slightly lower grade ore is
being treated; this policy can
be practised owing to the prevailing
18-cent copper market.
The outstanding feature of metal
prices in the first half of 1929 was
the rise in the price of copper to 24
cents a pound. This, however, was
largely a nominal quotation and it
is doubtful if much copper was sold
at this price. The average price of
June 30 was 18.439 cents a pound,
which shows an increase of 25.8 per
cent over the average of 14.649
cents for 1928.
Lead and zinc prices rose during
the early part of the year and then
declined slightly with the averages
showing somewhat higher than for

more minerals were shipped out of
the Yukon in 1928 than ever before.

Consolidated Forging Ahead
Few mining companies have
made progress in the recent years
greater than that of Consolidated
Mining & Smelting Company.
Every month almost there is announcement of some enlargement of
its plant at Trail. In every section
of the province, its mining engineers
are examining properties. Its operations are extending to all parts of
Canada and into the United States.
None of this expansion is made
in an effort to have its plants exceed
in greatness those of any other
company. Its enlargements are
made to meet conditions developed.

Canadians are the world's greatest butter eaters. A recent compilation made by the Canadian Government Bureau of Statistics shows
that the total consumption of butter
in the Dominion last year was
230,000,000 pounds or a per capita

$844,000, which was changed into
an actual surplus last year of approximately $776,000. Dividend
distributions since 1927 have been
paid out of capital, being made
from a special depreciation and depletion reserve set up in 1927 and
1928 to the amount of approximately $4,000,000. Since then payments have been made of $1,782.
000 and on July 1 shareholders
voted that this reserve for depletion and depreciation be increased
by the appropriation of further
funds from current assets.
Operating earnings of around
$10 a share are expected from
Granby thi.s year as compared with
$6.60 in 1928. The president stated in his half-yearly report that
unsold copper was being carried in
the company's inventory at 18j
cents per pound, although the cur
rent price of copper is between 17
cents and 18 cents a pound. If
copper stays around 18 cents a
pound, the dividend will likely be
increased to $2 a quarter or $8 a
year, compared with $7 last year.
This increase in dividend will
either take the form of a regular
distribution or by the payment of
$1.75 a share quarterly with an ex>
tra bonus of 25c. Granby's shares
analyze very attractively as an in
vestment for a reasonable hold.—

"There must always be in every
department a ladder and a chute.
There must be the ladder of promotion and the chute of discharge.
Every worker who has made a
success of his job has a right to
climb higher; and every worker
who persists in making a mess of
his job has the penalty of being
dropped in the chute. Fair play
in a department means promotion
and elimination both. It is always
better to lean on the side of patience
and mercy, but there is a limit. In
the long run it is justice that breeds
loyalty. You must have the chute
as well as the ladder."—Herbert N.
