Construction of Anyox
Concentrator Steadily
Construction work is now being
rushed on the, new Concentrator,
and the structural steel work now
being erected gives one a fair idea
of the size of the mill building.
The first oolumn was erected on
the 24th. of August, and the steel
workers are making good progress,
They have a movable derrick, with
an 80 foot boom, which enables
them to pick up steel from the cars
below and put them direotly in
Good progress is also being made
on the crushing plant. The bins
are formed up and will soon be
ready for the pouring of oonorete.
The lower walls of the bins are 68
feet high, and the forms look very
impressive up on the Steep hillside.
Thesel bins will have a capacity of
2000 tons, and are Teaohed by a
new trestle which brandies from
the "High Line" and when completed there will be three tracks
over the bins.
There are four main levels in the
crushing plant: the trestle and
tracks, 'the bottom of pre bins, the
gyratory crushers (of ■ which -there]
are two,) and' the rolls. <
There will be a conveyor system
from the crushing plant to the
mill, which will carry the fine ore.
to the steel bins in the mill..
There will be" a complete water
supply system covering the whole
plant, whioh will include a high
pressure fire protection line.
Power will be distributed from a
Transformer house, whioh will soon
be in course of erection, and will
. operate conveyors, orushers, rolls,
rod mills, flotation machines,
cleaners, screens, and filters".

Lodge Grows
As will be seen from the advertisement appearing in this issue,
Organizer W. P. H- Thompson has
made great progress with the
organization of. this Lodge in
Anyox. > The charter list was filled
some'time ago and the membership
list is rapidly approaching the
century mark, but the organizer
has great hopes that by the time
the Lodge is properly instituted it
will possess a roll call of two
hundred members. On arrival of
supplies, which are expeoted at an
early date, a meeting will be convened, full particulars of whioh
will be advertised in. the Herald.

Vanguard Ore Carries High
Gold Values
Development work on the Vanguard property this year has
proved to be of more value than
was at first expeoted. Samples of
iron pyrites sent to the government assay office have given
returns of $16.00 in gold per ton.
The iron pyrites are found on the
foot wall of the copper vein recently
encountered on the property. The
oopper vein is high grade ohaloopy-
rite, carrying gold values, and is
eleven feet wide, with three feet of
iron pyrites ore. The distance of
the strike from the portal of' the
tunnel is 102 feet, and having a
depth of over 90 feet. Those who
have visited the property during
the past few weeks are convinced
that the property has the earmarks
of a a good mine.
Esperanza is Looking Good
Additional men were taken, on at
the Esperanza mine last week, and
development work is being proceeded with in. the tunnel above the
Bttifly *tunnel; " A: new""ledgei of
quartz ten feet wide has been encountered; the quartz is shot
through with ore, and there is ten
inches of high grade ruby silver on
the foot wall. Average assays of
the whole ledge are being taken
with a view of mining the whole
Forty Tons of Ore Shipped
Forty tons of high grade silver-
lead ore were shipped south on the
Chilkoot last week. This ore Was
mined by the United Metals Co. a

Dr. Geo. Hanson says
Properties are Worth
Dr. Geo Hanson government
geologist, who left Alice Arm last
week, in reply to a question by the
Herald regarding thex possibilities
of the mining industry in the distriot, stated that Alice Arm
undoubtedly possessed many mining properties that were well worthy of development by mining,
companies, and predicted that the
time would come when these properties would be developed.
Speaking of the chalcopyrite.
copper properties, Dr. Hanson said
that Chalcopyrite was a primary
ore, aud the only thing neoessary
to show ore/Underground was to do
work in the right place, vand he
instanced the Vanguard property
as an example. Dr. Hanson has
studied the Alice Arm country
pretty thoroughly for the past
three summers, and his opinion
oarries considerable weight in mining circles. Alioe Arm no doubt
has the mineral but is at present
sadly in need of Capital to develop
her latent riches. .

Explanations !..,
Due to an unexpected congestion
of work at the the week-end, this
issue of the Herald is a little late in
making its appearance. Rather
than publish an edition that
was not up to the usual high standard, we deemed it the best course
to be rather a day or two late than
publish a skeleton sheet, and we
trust our readers will be satisfied
with the course we have taken.
The Lord Helps Those
Who Help Theinselves
The classes •for the Northern
Polytecnic Institute of Northern B.
C. will shortly be formed, and the
question will arise. How should
I spend my leisure time this winter? For any man or woman in
Anyox or Alice Arm there should
be only one answer. I should
improve my education, in some
manner this winter now that the
opportunity is placed before me.
The Polytecnic classes do not take
up all your spare time, you will
still have time to indulge in a little
recreation. There is a long winter
ahead; don't let it pass without
improving your education in some
way, and if you decide to enroll in
any of the numerous classes that
will be formed you will be doing
yourself an immeasurable amount
Summer Sports
Another summer sports season
has now about run its course, and
a very enjoyable one it has been
for all'concerned. Anyox can
justly be proud ' of its splendid
aggregation of young athletes, and
the sportsmanlike spirit in which
all games have been played. Of
course there is some grouching at
times concerning decisions of the
referees, but then, it is an inherited
habit of the Anglo-Saxon race to
grouch, and providing no animosity
is harbored, no one is hurt. The
big - fire I somewhat disrupted the
playing of games for a short time,
but this little difficulty was overcome, and about all that remains
now to complete the programme,
is the big celebration, which is an
annual event, at which the Community League are the hosts.
Congratulations to the officials of
the League, who are in a large
measure responsible for the summer
sports programme, and three hearty
cheers for the players—the best
bunch of good sports, that ever
competed on the playgrounds of
Great men tell in, that the most
useful, beneficient and priceless of
inventions is the alphabet. By it
men express their thoughts, and
convey their ideas, one to the other

those that are at home, and reaches

Hollinger Mine will be the
World's Largest Gold
North Bay-^In the gold silver arid
nickle centres of the porcupine area
large producers are taking strides that
will mark the second half of the current year in encouraging contrast to
the first half with respect to production and profit division figures.
The outstanding figure in this
progress is Hollinger Consolidated
goldmines, Which has been consistently treating ore at the rate of 5,000 tons
a day, and according to the predictions of its general manager will
strike its stride f pr the last half of 1923
at from $35,000 to $40,000 a day, or a
total of »7,000,000. Geological
formations encountered up to this
time indicate, the continued deposition
of gold to great depths. One of the
greatest shaft-sinking operations ever
undertaken is now underway.
Its ultimate Objective will be a depth
of 6000 feet and a quadrupled scope of
operations. The company plans to
enlarge its milling capacity to between
$80,0«)and $70,000 a day, which would
bring the annual Hollinger production
to $20,000,000 or $25,000,000 worth of
gold—the largest annual production of
any gold mine in the world.

The Old I. X. L. Mine is
Disgorging Riches
. The famous old I. X. L. Mine one of.
the free gold properties which was
operated in Rossland in the early days
of mining, and which is located within
less than a mile of the city, continues
to prove the sensation in mining in the
section. '
A syndicate of local mining men
took over the property a few years
ago under lease from John R. Baker
of Tacoma Wash., and were not long,
in recovering the ore body, and what
was then considered very'rlch ore was
sent to the smelter netting the operators rich returns. But the latest And
has climaxed everything in the way of
ore heretofore taken from the old I. X.
L., the lessees now having in course of
preparation to the smelter at Kellogg
Idaho, several tons of ore that is so
high grade that it Will be sent by auto
truck, the Great Northern Railway
refuses to receive the ore and insure
its delivery to the smelter, it is said.
The last oar shipped netted the owners, eight in number, over $8,000 each.
The ore at present being, mined is
being found right at the mouth of the
tunnel, where the first ore of any value
was taken in the early days when the
old I. X. L. proved the sensation of
the camp.
The shipment to be made soon is all
sacked ore it is stated that it will
average in net returns to the lessess
over $40,000 to the carload.
It will take two days to make the
trip to Kellogg, by motor truck, and
several trips will have to be made
before the ore at present mined can be
landed there;

Speoial to the Herald
Price for domestic Deliveries 14
Cents-Most producers Holding at 14
1-8 Cents or out of market.
Domestic buying of copper has been
small, owing to unwillingness bf domestic fabricators'to pay price asked for
by producers. Aside ship buying in
New York for export has been in good
volume, with price 18 IS to 18.96 cents
and some independents still holding
out for 14 cents. Sales on o. i. f. basis
have been small.
Most producers are holding for 141-8
cents delivered, but a good tonnage of
metal is available at even money. Fabricators are unwilling to give firm bids:
above 13 8-4 cents delivered, preferring
to await more definite indications of
price trend before making further
It is believed that producers are,
willing to make a determined stand at
14 cents delivered, and it is not improbable that this price may, become the
bottom at which the now, buying
movement is to start. This, however,
must depend largely upon price attitude maintained by larger producers
and their unwillingness to follow down
upon smaller sellers in this condition
of market when ultimate consumers
are about to place orders for a fall
business with fabricators, but refuse to
do so untill they feel certain that bottom has been reached in price of copper.
Price of electrolytic copper for domestic shipment is 14 cento a .pound
delivered, with ■'] larger producers
holding at 141-8 or out of the market.
Prices aside ship New York is 13 7-8 to
13.05, with good business and certain
independents refusing to sell under 14
cents. Price c. i. f. Hamburg or London is around 14.15 cent*, with prein
hint for spot or prompt copper.  '
