Devlin Zinc Property to
Be Developed by
U. S. Capital
The Devlin Zinc property, at
Alice Arm, which is situated on
the North-east Fork of the Kitsault river and only six miles from
town, and which has been receiving development work for the past
three weeks, is to be futher developed, says Mr. J. J. Murphy, who
recently made an extensive examination of tho property, returning
to Alice Arm on Friday.
Mr. Murphy arrived from San
Francisco, via Vancouver on Monday, aud left the same day for the
property. He was very enthusiastic over the future prospects of
the property, and after an extensive examination, had no hesitation in recommending that a 100-
foot development tunnel be driven.
The contract for this tunnel has
been let to Messrs. Flynn, McDonald and Jacob, and agreements
were signed on Saturday.
The ore is a resin zinc, and there
are three ore ledges on the property, the largest of which is 12
feet wide, and which has a dip of
about 45 degrees. Paralleling it
is another ledge 8 feet wide, which
stands almost vertical, and is only
9 feet distant. Another ledge 2\
feet wide is only 5 feet distant,
and it is presumed that these three
ledges blend together a short distance from the- surface. All the
veins have a north-east and southwesterly strike.
Samples of ore taken from the
12ft. ledge have given returns of
43.20 per cent, zinc, which at
seven cents per pound gives a
value of $60.61 per ton. Samples
taken from the 8ft. ledge gave
returns of 51.50 per cent zinc,
valued at $72.30 per ton. Two
splendid samples of this ore were
brought to Alice Arm, one of which
was sent to the Prince Rupert
exhibition, and the other is destined for the B. C. Chamber of Mines.
The tunnel now -being driven
will follow the 12ft. ledge and as
soon as sufficient snow is available,
a shipment of ore will be made to
the smelter. On the completion of
the tunnel, a further programme
of development work will be outlined.
The Devlin Zino property was
recently purohased from J. Wells
and W. J. Wells, and an adjoining
claim from J. Devlin.   The former
was the original locator and  first
staked the ground many years ago.
It has been purchased by J. W.
Doherty of San Francisco,   who
made a cash payment, and thus
owns the property outright, Mr.
I  Devlin, who was instrumental in
{ putting through the deal  will be
in charge of   operations   at   the
mine.   A cabin 14 ft. by 16 ft. has
reoently been built  and   surface
_ stripping of the ore  bodies   has
I been carried on during the past
| month, under the supervision  of
Mr. Devlin, who confidently expeots
a produoing mine to be brought in
at an early date.
Several interesed in mining have
1 recently    visited    the   property,
among whom were J. O. Trethewey
who was greatly enthused   with
the fine ore showings.
Mr. Murphy left today for Vanoouver, but will return at an early
i date in order to examine other
J properties in the neighborhood on
j behalf of J. W. Doherty, of San
! Francisco.
J. B. Wiokham, who has been
j on the staff at the Toric mine for
[some time, left on Friday for Van-

Summit Property Has
Numerous Big Ore
Close prospecting and development work oarried ou by A. Davidson on the Summit property this
summer have been instrumental in
discovering some more big ore
showings on that property.
Mr. Davidson, the owner, who
was in Alice Arm for a few days
during the week, stated that an
ore body 66 feet wide had been
discovered this summer, and an
open out had been made clear
across the ore ledge. The location
of this ore body is in an almost
flat country, with the ledge having
a south-west and north-easterly
strike, one end of which has been
found on the east slope of the
mountain. Present work shows
that the ledge stands almost vertical.
Two more ore bodies are in close
proximity to the above mentioned,
one of which has been traced on
the surface for a distance of 270
feet, and the other for 300 feet,
but which is known to be much
Still another ore body was
located this summer, which intersects tlie big ledge, and has a
north-west and south-easterly
strike. In addition to this, another ore ledge is located on the
summit of the mountain, and
which has a strike of 35 degrees
north of east. The ore is silver-
Mr. Davidson is confident that
the Summit property will ultimately develop into a big tonnage
producer of silver-lead ore, and
further development work will be
carried on as   soon   as   possible.
Mr. Davidson left town on
Thursday for the Wildcat property
in order to extend the development
tunnel on that property.

Somewhat Curtailed
The boys at the smelter, working on the shifts of Messrs. Gorman and Brewster, were highly
elated on Sunday, when they
boarded the good ship Azurite,
anticipating a pleasant da? to be
spent at Alice Arm. The boat-
pulled out promptly at 9 a.m.,
with the Anyox brass band playing in the stern, but unfortunately
there happened to be a little engine
trouble, just as the boat rounded
Granby Point, which made it ihi-
pevative for the Azurite to return,
but the hoys were landed over at
the sawmill and according to reports an enjoyable day was spent.
O. Besner of Prince Rupert
Inspects Mining Properties
Mr. and Mrs. O. Besner and two
daughters spent a few .days in
Alice Arm last week, They made
the trip from Prince Rupert in
their own launch. Mr. Besner
made an examination of the
Climax, Silver Bow and Easterly
mining properties while in town,
and of which he is the owner.
The two latter adjoin the Toric on

The permanent success and expansion of any mining camp depends upon the attracting of big
mining companies into the district;
companies who have had a wealth
of experience, and who have the
money for development purposes,
and the erection of big reduction
plants for the treatment of ore.
It is becoming more difficult each
year to interest any big mining
company in a promising property,
which is only in the prospect
stage. They will, however, take
over properties that are partially
developed, with a good tonnage of
ore in sight, as was the case at
Mape Bay and Copper Mountain,
when the Granby Company toor
over these mines. A more recen
case is the option recently securec
on the Sally mine, near Penticton,
by the Guggenhiem interests, who
are paying $500,000 for a property they could have picked up at
any time during the past twenty
years for a mere trifle, compared
with the present price. There
are, of course, exceptions to the
rule now being generally practised,
but in order to interest a big mining company, whose sole business
is mining, an unusually big surface
showing of ore must be located on
the property, and this is an exception rather than the general rule, in
any man's country. From the
geologists standpoint, everything
must also be in apple-pie order,
- before development work will be
undertaken. As we see it, development of a new mineral country,
such as the Alice Arm district,
will in future depend entirely upon
the small mining companies, who
have enough capital to develop a
property to the stages when a big
company will become interested.
The property is then taken over
by the big company, who have
ample means for placing the mine
in the producing stage, and everyone profits, including the original
owner of the property; the small
mining company, who was willing
to take a chance on a promising
prospect; and the big company
who would rather pay a higher
price than take a chance on what
they considered, previous to development, a doubtful investment.
After paving spent many a
month in experimental work, the
Premier Gold Mining company
have decided to increase the milling capacity of their plant, by adding another unit, to 400 tons per
day. The present mill, when built
was constructed to handle 100
tons, though this has been materially increased.
Copper Market Healthy
Says Col. D. C.
'The oopper metal situation is
growing considerably better. It
has shown some improvement for
a long time, with its down and up
swing, and after the peaks have
been reached, it settles down and
is always a little more stable."
This is the opinion of Col. D. C.
Jackling, one of the great mining
men of the country, than whom
there are none more qualified to
speak on the metal industry.
The Jackling party, escorted from
Seattle by E- T. Stannard, vice-
president and general manager of
the Kennecott Copper Corporation,
returned on the steamer Alaska,
after visiting the Kennecott and
Mother Lode copper mines in the
Copper river area. Forming the
party were Col. D. C. Jackling, a
director of the Kennecott Copper
Corporation; president of the Utah
Copper and Nevada Consolidated;
vice-president of the Ray Consolidated; president of the Bingham-
Garfied Railroad Company, and a
lirector in a score of other mining
ind financial concerns; Ralph No-
!and, mining engineer of national
repute, long on the staff of the
Jackling interests; A. C. Bowie, of
the legal department of the Jackling interests, and C. A. Nickson,
secretary to Col. Jackling.
"The world is consuming more
oopper now than it did even during
the world war," said Col. Jackling,
"with the price getting firmer and
the fluctuations not so violent. Of
course, there are always variations in price, but the present
tendency is good, and although the
metal is not as high as it might be,
still at a selling price above 14
cents it is better than if below that
figure. In recent weeks the takings have been greater than the
production, and the industry
generally is in good shape."
Iu speaking of conditions at
Kennecott, where the Kennecott
and Mother Lode copper mines are
located, Col. Jackling said they
were the greatest deposits of high
grade ore, for the amount produced, the world has ever known,
and no other mines have ever approximated them. He said the
mines were well equipped with a
perfect organization, the production is normal and the development very satisfying.—Alaska

Shipments of the fine dust and
residue From the Granby site start
ed Wednesday with a crew of Jive
men at work, and it is possible the
number will lie increased in order
to ensure the car-per day shipment.
It is roughly estimated that
there may be anywhere from 5,-
000 to 15,000 tons of shipping
material at the old smelter site.
Until returns are received from
.several ears it will not be possible
to say how much will be shipped,
but ■on a basis of returns from
samples it is expected that daily
oar shipments can be continued for
nearly a year.
In like manner the shipments
from the Providence mine at
Greenwood will be continued indefinitely, depending on the returns received. However, returns
from the car shipped were more
favorable than had been expected.
Mr. Poggi is in charge of the
Grand Forks shipments and Mr
Clark is directing shipments at
Greenwood.—Grand Forks Gazette

The deepest hole in the earth is

"Too bad!" exclaimed the professor, "One of my pupils, to whom
I've given two courses of instruction in the cultivation of the memory, has forgotten to pay me, and
the worst of it is I can't remember
