Reference to the copper situa

ment agreement means that a
decrease in world production of
60,000 tons a month, with the pro
viso that if the price shall exceed
12 cents for 15 days, curtailment
will cease. Should copper stocks
above ground be reduoed to equal
the aggiegate of total deliveries
for four months, any company may
resume operations as it sees fit ou
30 days' notice.
Canadian copper producers are
affected to an appreciable degree
by the curtailment programme.
Total production in Canada iii
1929 was about 124,000 tons, but
there are now facilities for refining
210,000 tons annually. The total
Canadian consumption is about
50,000 tons so that our entire

Mining Costs of British
Columbia's Mines
Very Low
The outstanding records being
established by British Columbia
mines in low costs for mining and
milling are not realized and appreciated as they should be, says
The Miner, of Vancouver. It is
evident that British Columbia as
in the past is leading all Canada
iu the most economical handling
and treatment of low grade ore.
Many years ago low cost world
records were made in the Boundary District in the mining and
direct smelting of 1 per cent copper ore, carrying low precious metal contents, and ever since British
Columbia mines have been in the
van. It is somewhat amusing to
find the Northern Miner of Toronto
—a usually reliable mining paper
—claiming for the Sherrit-Gordon
mine, in Manitoba, the lowest mining and milling costs of any mine,
in Canada. Iu substantiation of
this statement it is recorded that
these costs are $2.33 per ton. At
present metal prices this figure is
considerably above the gross value
of certain ores mined in British
During 1931 ore treated at the
Britannia mine will have averaged
barely 1 per cent copper and 10
cents a ton in gold and silver. At
7 cents a pound for copper this is a
gross value of $1.50 a ton, which
has to take care of metallurgical losses, mining and mill costs, taxes
and overhead. Possibly Britannia
is only breaking even on out-of-
pocket' expenses, but that they
can handle ore of this grade is
striking testimony of the efficiency
of the operation. How it is accomplished was in part indicated iu a
paper by D. A. Hatch of the Britannia staff at the recent Annual
Western Meeting of the Institute,
which shows that total milling
costs were only 20.4 cents a ton.
The liberal attitude of this company iu making available' to the
mining industry of Canada detail
information as to how this low
cost is obtained, shows the true
spirit of modern .efficient industry
and is highly commendable. Doubtless many mill superintendents
throughout Canada will be stimulated to fresh endeavours with resultant benefits to metallurgical
practice in the Dominion.
The Granby Company at Anyox
is handling ore but slightly higher
in grade than Britannia and costs
must be of about the same order.
Misconceptions as to low costs
attained in Eastern Canada seem
to be general, as the Monetary
Times in its issue of October 23rd
makes the statement that "Dome's
operating costs at $3.50 per ton are
the lowest of all the large mining
companies." The Premier mine—
a relatively small tonnage operation—in 1930 reported $3.60 a ton
operating costs, an increase over
$3.20 in 1929, due to extensive development    aud   diamond-drilling

Costs of British
Columbia's Mines
Very Low
Men in Relief Camps Anxious
To Start Work
Continued from page 1
Another indication of the efficiency of the major mining operations of British Columbia, is the
record for 1931 of 5,410,000 tons of
ore treated, having a gross value of
$23,567,000 or $4.36 per too. This
includes the $1,500,000 tons of ore
treated from the Sullivan mine,
the main source of revenue for the
Consolidated Company, which wasi.
definitely a profitable operation.
In declaring a half yearly cash
dividend of $1.25 a share in De
cember, the Company announced
estimated profits for the year were
in excess of cash requirements for
dividends, plus tax.
It is of course truo that the
physical nature of some of the
larger ore bodies in the Province
have adapted them to low mining
costs, but a milling cost of 20.4
cents a ton is a tribute to metallurgical and executive ability. The
costs now being achieved also indi
cate that what is now mineralized
rock in certain deposits will become ore in the future. Surface
indications of deposits promising
enormous tonnages of $1.00 to
$2.00 ore now warrant critical
investigation and development.
The importance of the records
being attained in low costs is in
this lowering of the economic limit
for profitable treatment of the low
grade mineral resources of the
In spite of shortage of money to
provide aotual employment, the
condition of the men in the various
work camps provided by the Provincial Government, is said to be
very satisfactory. There has been
very little disturbance of any kind,
and the men generally appear
really anxious to get to work. In
many cases they have been working voluntarily around cutting the
wood or laboring on the roads. It
is hoped that if present arrangements are concluded with Ottawa
it will be possible to put about 10,
000 to work on a relief basis shortly. Agreements for the allocation,
of about $2,250,000 for relief work
have been signed between the Provincial Government and different
Huge Sums Spent on Water
Power Development
Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 30—The
development of water power resources constitutes one of the Dom
inion. In 1931 alone a sum
aggregating $110,000,000 was
spent in development, transmission
and distribution of new power and
a further $280,000,000 will be re
quired tooompleteprojeotsthat are
now under construction, according
to tlie Natural Resources Department of the Canadian National
Directory of mining men is kept
by the B. C. Chamber of Mines at
Vancouver and has proven of inestimable value.
Prospectors Can Have Ore
Tested Free At Ottawa
Prospectors should bear in mind
that the Geological Survey at
Ottawa has for many years made
it one of its functions to determine
minerals for prospectors and report
on their possible economic value,
without charge. The parcel
should bear the sender's name and
address and should be sent to the
Director, Geological Survey, Ottawa, and should be accompanied by
a letter giving the location of the
mineral deposit from which the
specimen was taken and information regarding the character and
extent of the ore.
It might also be of interest to
know that the Geological Survey
is in a position to supply a set of
20 small specimens of common
minerals at'50 cents, and a set of
20 small com iiion rocks at the
same price.

Lands have been annexed by fire and sword, but
the west coast of Vancouver Island has the unique
distinction of being won by a song. The Spanish
admiral who led an expedition against it in 1790, so
charmed the heart of the warlike Maquinna, Lord
of the Nootkas, with a theme song which he caused
his merry men to sing over and over until the chief
was placated, that the Indian made him welcome
and gave him jurisdiction over the Sound and the
Islands. Since that date the coast of Vancouver
Island has become the rendezvous of tourists from
all over the world.   Within easy reach of Vancouver,
Victoria and Seattle, it yet offers the attraction of
territory quite unspoilt by industrialism and a paradise of beautiful scenery and fruitful sport. As it
was when the Spaniards first sighted it, so it virtually is today. Canadian Pacific steamships of the
British Columbia Coast Service travel up and down
this coast, and make it easily and comfortably accessible to visitors. Lay-out shows Canadian Pacific

cars and station restaurants; 4,450,000 on Atlantic
