Fine Ore Samples Taken
From Matilda Property
Development Work Commenced
Next Month
Some fine large samples of, ore
, from the Matilda property, owned
by the Kitsault River Mining and
Development Co., were 'brought
to Alioe Arm on Thursday by
Messrs. 0. Flint and 8. Wenerstrom.
These specimens, some of whioh
weigh over 50 pounds are very
highly mineralized, and prove conclusively that the Matilda is a
property well worth developing.
Tlie ore is chiefly silver-lead, but
also carries considerable zino.
Good gold values have also been
obtained from Matilda ore at different times.
The samples were taken from an
open cut on the surface from a
vein 4| feet wide. This vein has
had a 30 foot crosscut tunnel
driven on it, and the ore drifted
on 5 feet. Open cuts have also
been made both above and below
the tunnel. This vein wiil be developed by the company this summer, and work will commence
early next month. Other ore
bodies are also known to exist on
the property and these also will
probably be developed this year.
A horse trail will be built up the
hill from the Homestake trail thus
eliminating the climb over the
Vanguard hill.
Discovery of Gold Ore
on Jim Property
An ore strike, which may mean
the bringing in of another shipping mine in the near future has
been made on the Jim property by
Jim Peacock of Anyox and Joe
Sexton of Alice Arm.
While development work was being carried on a ledge of ore from
8 to 10 feet wide was uncovered,
This ore is a telluride ore, containing arsenic and samples sent out
for assaying gave the gratifying
returns of $50.00 in gold per ton
and 4 ounces silver.
The Jim property is situated
only four miles up the Kitsault
valley from Alice Arm, and the
disoovery was made close to the
railway track.
A orosscut tunnel will be driven
in September, 30 feet, and the vein
then drifted on for 70 feet. This
tunnel will give a vertical depth
i the ore of at least 100 feet.

Mining Trails Being
Built in Alice
Arm District
Examines Mining Properties
George B. Winkler arrived in
Alioe Arm from Vancouver on
Monday, and intends to spend
two weeks examining mining properties in the distriot. Mr. Winkler
is doouting on behalf of R. H.
Stewart, M. E. of Vanoouver, who
is investigating promising mining
properties for the Viotoria Syndioate of London.
Realizing that the prosperity of
Alice Arm depends upon the advancement of the mining industry,
the Public Works Department is
doing its utmost in building trails
to the various promising properties
in the distriot, whose owners have
outlined a programme of development work. This building of trails
will remove a great handicap; it
will give property owners more
encouragement to develop their
properties, and will also encourage
mining companies to bond properties when transportation is assured.
Five milea of trail is now under
construction on Lime Creek The
trail will follow the creek, and used as a foot trail. Two men are
now being employed.
Six men are working at East
Creek constructing a horse trail 5
miles in length. This trail will be
built to the summit at an elevation
of about 3000 feet.      .
The trail from Camp 8 to the
Kitsault Glacier is being changed
at the Toric mine. Due to the
construction of the concentrating
mill near the old trail it was
necessary to carry the trail above
tkoinill and tunnel. Five men are
being employed on this work.
Widening and repairing the La
Rose trail from the railway track
to the mine is being carried on by
three men. The completion of this
work will enable the contractors
to haul in ore cars, rails,'etc.
Three men are employed widening and repairing the trail to the
Standard property, which is being developed by the Granby Co.
The work of changing the course
of the Kitsault river to its original
channel, in order to check it from
flooding the Kitsault flats is well
under way. Half the river is now
running iu the old channel
About 200- feet has been cleaned
Clearing rocks, logs, brush, etc
from the side of the tracks of the
Dolly Varden railways, as ordered
by J. Short, inspector for the Department ■ of Railways, is . being
carried out.
J. Wells, who has oharge of all
public works of Alice Ann district,
states that in addition to the above
work other trails will be built, to
aid property owners during the

Riverside Property Has
High Grade Silver Ore
As the news columns of the Herald were being made up for the
press news was reoeived by mail
that the recent ore samples sent
out for assaying by W. A. Wilson
and J. A. McDennaid, owners of
the Riverside, gave the following
high values: Gold 0.68, value
$13.60. Silver 485.4 ounoes, value
$330.07. Total value per ton
The vein from which the sample
was taken is about 2 feet wide and
cuts directly across a bjg canyon
in Granite creek. The vein can be
traoed clear to the top of the canyon wall and across the creek up
the other side.
It will be remembered that a
recent sample taken from a dyke
near this ore vein recently gave
returns of $12.00 per ton. This
dyke is 3 feet wide.
The point of discovery is only
400 feet from the Dolly Varden
railway and only 4 miles from
Alice Arm. It is the owners intention to commence mining this
ore at an early date.
Enjoyable Dance Given

Last Wednesday evening was
the occasion of a v,ery successful

started at nine thirty, refresh
meuts were served at eleven thirty
aud after a short intermission
dancing was resumed until two
o'clock. The music was supplied
by Mrs. Chapman, piano; Tom

credit for their efforts, the appreciation of the dancers was proved
repeatedly throughout the dance,

E, MOSS, Editor and Publisher;
We are now in the middle of
the summer season, with the
weather getting warm and with
prospects of its getting warmer during the next month. With the
weather getting hotter the woods
in the vicinity of Anyox and Alice
Arm are getting dryer, and it is
the duty of everyone to be extremely careful with fires while in
the woods during the dry weather
spells. Both towns have had
several narrow escapes from bush-
fires during the past few years, and
with the timber dying off over a
larger area each year, the ground
becomes more dry and consequently the risk of fire is much greater.
In 1924 there were 2174
forest fires in the province, 86 per
cent, of which were directly attributable to human agency.
Following  are  a   few    simple
rules that should be followed:
Tobacco-Be   sure    that    your
cigarette, cigar end or pipe ashes
are out before throwing them
Matches—Be sure your match is
out before you throw it away.
Matches have heads, but they
can't think.    Do it for them.
Making   Camp—Build   a   small
camp fire.    Build it in the open,
not   against   a   tree   or    log.
Scrape away the debris from
all around it.
Leaving Camp-*-Never   leave   a
camp fire, even for a short time,
without quenching it with water
or earth.
Bonfires—Never build bonfires in
windy weather or where there
is the slightest danger of their
escaping from control.    Dont
make them larger   than   you
Fighting Fires—If you notice   a
small fire starting, try to put it
out.   Larger fires should be reported immediately.

J, R. Turner, mining engineer,
for J. F. Duthie, recently arrived
at Smithers to resume operations
at tlie Duthie mine on Hudson Bay
mountain, and immediately upon
his arrival he mustered up his
working force for an early start at
the property. Tlie Duthie mine
lias been closed down for almost a
year while J. F. Duthie and the
Guggenheim interests were arriv
ing at a basis of settlement of
their respective interests. The
Guggenheim suddenly closed operations after they had shipped ore
with an estimated value of $200, •
000, the close-down being linked
up with a decision to withdraw
from the British Columbia held.
In dropping the Duthie mine the
Guggenheims took all their equipment from the property, leaving
inly the plant and equipment used
>y Mr. Duthie in exposing and developing the remarkable showing
on the Henderson property. This
plant has fallen into disrepair and
Mr. Turner lias started in to rejuvenate the equipment in readiness for actual mining at the point
left off a year ago. The oamps are
to be put in shape and it is expected that ten days or two weeks
will elapse before actual mining is
liider way. When work is under
way between 35 and 40 men will
be employed.
