Important Gold Strike
Made On Elkhorn Group
Free Gold Visible.       Adjoins Silver Crest Mine
The moBt sensational strike of
gold ore ever made in the Alice
Arm district was made by J.
Flynn, on the Elkhorn Group,
which is situated on Hastings Arm.
Samples of the ore brought to
Alice Arm this week, shows the
oro to he impregnated with free
gold, and in several speoimens the
gold is visible to the naked eye.
The gold is associated with the
silver-lead ore, characteristic of the
district, and it is the belief that it
will be persistent and that it will
maintain its value at depth.
Samples taken from different parts
of the vein are identical, which
shows that the find is not pockety.
The strike was made during
close prospecting of the ground
while development work was being
carried on. Flynn came across an
outcropping that looked interesting and investigation quickly convinced him that he had undoubtedly stumbled across an El Dorado.
The ore vein is shown to be a
foot wide, and has already been
traced for a distance of 150 feet
! on the surface. A nearby vein,
having a width of 8 feet, and
whioh parallels the other vein was
' also investigated and it is stated
that this vein also carries gold in
considerable quantities.
Mining engineers have already
visited the scene of the strike, and
have classed it as the best strike of
| gold ore in the north outside the
Engineer mine at Atlin. At the
time of writing returns had not
been received from samples sent for
The Elkhorn is owned by J.
Flynn, W. McDonald and J. Collins of Alice Arm. It adjoins the
Saddle property on the east, which
is being developed by the Silver
Crest Mining Co. of Vancouver.
It is expected that the ore vein will
be traced into the Saddle ground.
The owners of the Elkhorn were
in Alice Arm during the week,
getting together supplies, so that
as much development work as possible could be done before the snow
Neil Forbes and J. Flynn staked
several claims adjoining the Elkhorn immediately following the
gold strike.
The striking of gold ore on
Hastings Arm, again extends the
mineral bearing area of the Alice
Arm district, of which Alice Arm
is the distributing point, north
south east and west the area is
being gradually enlarged, and increased transportation facilities
that are planned will considerably
increase the area in the future.
An outstanding point of the
strike is that the country, even in
the vicinity of tidewater, will
stand a lot of further prospecting.
Although the Elkhorn is close to
tidewater and doubtless has been
traversed by many prospectors, the
rich ore lay hidden until this week,
Mr. and Mrs. Jones were south

Topographical Mapping
Alice Arm District
Mr. R. Bartlett, who has been
in charge of the Dominion topographical survey party at Alice
Arm left on Wednesday for Ottawa
where he will spend the winter.
The unusual wet summer handicapped Mr. Bartlett's work this
season, but the fine weather experienced in September gave him
time to complete the work this
Mr. Bartlett will spend the winter transferring his notes to paper
in preparation for the map that
will be published next summer.
The geological work undertaken
by Dr, Geo. Hanson will be also
included in the map. The map
will be complete in every detail.
It will show distances, elevations
of mountains, locations of creeks,
and the geological formations of
each district.
Mining companies and others
seeking information of the Alice
Arm section will have their wants
provided to the smallest detail.

May Acquire Properties In
Alice Arm District
E. G. Davidson, who has been
examining mining properties in
the district, left on Wednesday for
Vancouver. This is Mr. Davidson's third visit to Alice Arm and
he expects to return in about two
He was greatly impressed with
the ore showings of the Upper
Kitsault Country and expects to
take over several properties this
year. Owing to tho lateness of
the season, however, it is probable
that development work would not
lie undertaken until next spring.

of Alice Arm, and who owns an
interest in mining claims in the
district, died at his home in Seattle

Esperanza Mining Co.
Increases Capitalization
Increased To 1,000,000 Shares, Par Value $1.00
At a meeting of the directors of
the Esperanza Mining Co held in
Prince Rupert last week, a reorganization was effected. The
capitalization was raised from
500,000 shares to 1,000,000 shares,
par value one dollar.
Sixteen claims, which adjoin the
Esperanza, have been taken over,
and the company now control 19
claims in one block.
It is expected that ample funds
will shortly be available for an expansion of operations. All the
:laims taken over are in the Esperanza formation. Assessment work
done on Ralph Ingraham's claims
by the company this year,disclosed
an ore vein 16 feet wide, states
Mr. N. Fraser, general manager
at the Esperanza, The ore is of a
milling grade. The Alice property,
which was also taken over, has
several good showings of silver ore.
At the Esperanza, the No. 2
tunnel has developed an ore vein
2 feet wide, which is now being
drifted on. The ore is considered
to be the best ever found in the
mine. Indications of the early encountering of ore in the No. 9 tunnel are promising. Ore has been
coming in bunches, and it is expected that the main body will
shortly be reached.
It is expected that a compressor
plant and small concentrating mill,
that has been needed for a long
time, will be installed.

Old Santa Claus In Need
Of Help
A  Letter Explaining Why
For a number of years now
throughout Canada there has been,
"A chain of Boy Scout Toy Shops."
The idea of this has been to collect
old toys, repair them and then send
them to the many homes, that perhaps, Old Santa might not be able
to call on. Last year the Anyox
Troop collected toys and sent them
to Vancouver to be repaired and
they were the most northerly troop
to do so. This year they not only
wish to get the toys collected but to
repair them also, so that on reaching Vancouver they can be sent to
their destinations. By doing this
the Scouts will be helping others
and also they will get more useful
at handicrafts.
Please don't throw that old toy
away, but just let one of the boys
know you have it, and they will
gladly bring it to head-quarters for
treatment. All toys will be appreciated and called for, please help us
to help others.
Yours Scoutingly,
Tiger Tunnel Advanced 375
Latest news from the Tiger
property, whioh was received yesterday, was to the effect that the
No. 3 tunnel had been driven a
distance of 375 feet from the portal. It is being driven parallel to
the main ore ledge, and when an
additional 100 feet has been driven the tunnel will turn and crosscut the ledge. Ed. Pickett is in
charge of operations. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD.  Saturday.    October, 5  1929
Premier Is Outstanding
Mine of Province
Premier, in the Portland Canal
district, remains one of the most
spectacular mines not only in British Columbia, but of Canada, and
there are few in America as a whole
that can equal its record. On
October 3rd. it paid its regular dividend of 6 cents per share, and this
disbursement will bring the grand
total of dividends to $14,050,000.
Payment of dividends started on
December 31, 1921, and its eight
year total is a wonderful record.
In addition to dividends, several
millions of dollars have been placed to reserve and depletion
accounts, while in addition improvements to plant and equipment have
been paid out of revenue since the
early days of the mine.
In 1922 Premier made a record
in securing a return of $4,782,885
from 102,334 tons of ore. The
shipments averaged 1.25 oz. gold
and 44 oz. silver. In 1920 and
1921 no ore was shipped that did
not run over $100 per ton. Since
the mill has been installed there
has been a steady increase in the
annual tonnage but a decrease in
the per ton value. Today mill
heads are running between $10 and
$11, while some 300 tons of ore is
of high enough grade to ship direct
to smelter.
Immigration    of   Britishers
The number of farm laborers
which the railway companies will
be permitted to bring into Canada
from non-preferred countries of
Europe will for the next year be
further reduced by 25 per cent.
The present provisions to encourage immigration from the British
Isles will be continued, including
two-pound      assisted      passages.
Tlr wps the gist of a statement
issued .cr representatives of the
C. P. R., the Canadian National,
the Hudson Bay Co., and several
ocean shipping companies spent in
conference with the minister of immigration, Hon. Robert Forke, and
officials of his department in connection with next year's movement.
437 Canadian Coal Mines
Of the 437 coal mines operating
in Canada, 292 are in Alberta; 55
in Saskatchewan; 40 in Nova Scotia;
35 in British Columbia; 14 in New
Brunswick and one in the Yukon
Territory. There is more than
$146,000,000 capital invested in
these mines, which give employment to 28,350 persons.

Four Co's Driving Same

Stewart News
Driving through quartz-porphyry
such as contains practically all the
ore bodies of the upper Salmon
basin, the main tunnel of the Premier Border Mining Co., operating
on the Northern Light group, has
been advanced 850 feet and values
are becoming more encouraging, a
zone having been entered at 820
feet lhat averages $9.20 in gold
and silver. The tunnel is being
driven in a southerly direction toward the Premier mine, the boundary of which will be reached at
1800 feet from the mouth of the
Premier Border tunnel.
Taking the present workings of
the Premier, Premier Border, B. C.
Silver and Sebakwe into consideration, an interesting situation is
disclosed. All four properties are
drifting on ore, all in quartz porphyry, and all toward a common
centre. The old lessons in mining
about "strikes, clips and angles"
have to be forgotten as far as mining on this hill is concerned. If
these drifts are continued until they
meet, what sort of a condition will
they find? A centre like the hub of
a wheel with ore shoots radiating
in all directions? Here is a puzzle
for the mining engineer, metallurgist and geologist to solve.
Lost Bullion Rocovered In
Slocan Lake
After reposing at the bottom of
Slocan Lake for 27 years, bullion to
the value of $65,000 was recovered
recently by Fred Madison, a diver
of Nelson, B. C, in the employ of
C. F. MacDougall, contractor.
The truck of bullion was lost in the
process of loading the bullion on
board a scow en route from Trail to
Australia. It went over the end of
the wharf, and neither the truck
nor the man it carried with it could
be located. It was discovered, in
dragging the lake for the body of a
boy who had been drowned, at a
distance of 300 ft. from the wharf
and in water that was about 120 ft.
Canada now produces about one-
tenth as much copper as United
States, about one-fourth as much
lead and about one-eighth as much
zinc. Ten years ago, the Dominion
was responsible for about one-
twenty-second part of the lead of
the United States and for about
one-sixteenth of the copper.

Mining in the Alioe Arm district this year has been the most
successful during the past eight
years. More ore has been proven
up this year than any previous
year and continuation of this good
work may be expected to continue.
Companies operating at present
are the Britannia Mining and

the Toric and Wolf; the Utility
Mines No. 1 Ltd. on the Tiger; the
Kitsault Eagle on the Sunrise and
the Esperanza Mining Co. who are

All of the above companies have
made excellent progress with their
development plans. Their activities and successes have been published at various times in these
columns and does not need repetition.
The outstanding feature of this
year's development work is the
success being attained at the Toric
mine by the Britannia Co. Latest
reports from the mine state that
the shaft being sunk on the ore
body is disclosing a good grade of
ore. At the completion of the
shaft, drifts will be driven so that
the ore can be developed at a lower level than the existing one.
No information regarding developement work on the Wolf is at
present obtainable. All cores from

F. G. T. Lucas, council for the
Consolidated Mining & Smelting
Co., announced before Major J. C.
MacDonald, water controller, that
consolidated would build a coast
smelter at Lois River, near Powell

harness the stream.

extension of its pulp and paper mill
for the manufacture of paper. It
says it must have this additional
power by 1931 in order to retain its
export markets.
