Development of Saddle
Property on Hastings
Within a couple of months the
Silver Crest Mines, Limited, will
know what's what on its newly
acquired Saddle property, whioh is
situated on Hastings Arm, and
owned by Chas Clay. It is proposed
to sink two 50 foot winzes on the
vein, a couple of hundred feet apart
This work will be started immediately, and should be completed in
about a month. If the ore shows
up as well at that depth as it does
on the surface, a tram will be installed and shipping started.
Saddle ore is high grade, so there
will be no lengthy wait for results.
When "Duke" Harris was in Vanoouver last month he negotiated
this deal with the Silver Crest, and
knowing the property he looks for
something once work gets under
way. ' Since his return north, he
has sent down a fine sample of or*
which has proved of great interest
to mining men. The vein has been
opened up on the surface for 300
> feet.
P. E. Peterson, well known because of his connection with coast
mines, is in charge of work on both
the Saddle and the Portland Canal
property, and will let contracts for
the winzes. Powder has already
been shipped. The government
has made a grant of $2,000 towards
a trail between the mine and tidewater, a distance of about a mile
and a half.
"Duke" Harris has been enthusiastic about the Saddle ever since
he first visited it over a year ago;
and he is sure he has an eye-opener
for those interested in the Alice
Arm district.

A General View of Alice Arm

Alice Arm Possesses Everything Necessary for the Making of a Large Town
Alice Arm as a mining camp of
importance is rapidly coming to the
front, and is receiving merited attention from influential mining companies throughout the world.
More development work will be
carried on this year than ever before
and this year will see the Toric concentrating mill in operation.
Properties that will be operated
this year are the Red Point, Vanguard, Homestake, Copper Cliff,
Toric, Esperanza, La Rose, Eagle,
Silver Cord, LeRoy, Keystone,
Devlin Zinc, and a tunnel 500 feet
in length is also planned for the
Bunker Hill.
The increased interest in the district's mineral' wealth, of the past
few years has been due chiefly to
the singularly easy manner in which
ore was encountered at the Toric
and LaRose mines and the recent
strike of ore at the Red Point has
been conducive of increased interest.
The easy manner in which the big
ore body of the Toric was located is
one of the outstanding successes of
mining not only of this district, .but
of the continent. A development
tunnel was driven 215 feet in length
when the foot wall of the ore body
was encountered. A crosscut tunnel
to the hanging wall showed the ore
body to be 65 feet wide. The ore
has been crosscut in several places
and both the hanging and footwalls
followed, and the result has been the
development of an immense tonnage
of ore. Values across the ore body
are persistent, and of uniform grade.
Silver is the principal metal and a
concentrating mill will be operating
this year. The largest portion of the
mill is already on the ground and the
balance will be placed in position as
soon as weather conditions permit.
The successful development of the
Toric is an example of the possibilities of the district. The management of the company are to be complimented on the successful develop-,
ment and operation of a property
which may ultimately become one of
the big mines of the province.
The successful development of the
big ore body on the Toric marked a
new epoch in the history of Alice
Arm, and following its success a
development tunnel was driven on
the LaRose, and ore was encountered almost as easily as on the Toric.
Although development work to date
has not located such a big body of
ore an exceptionally rich . vein was
encountered. Development of this
vein showed it to be persistent. A
portion of it was mined and last fall
40 tons were shipped to the smelter,
which gave returns of 177 ozs, silver
and $4.35 gold per ton. A large
tonnage of milling ore lying alongside the high grade is known to
exist, and further development will
undoubtedly prove the La Rose to
be a valuable mine. An option was
taken on it a few weeks ago by an
influential English mining company.
The recent strike of an ore vein
ten feet wide during development
work on the Red Point, again vividly brought to mind the richness of
the Alice Arm district. This strike
was unexpected, as an additional
100 feet at least is necessary before
the main ore body can be tapped by
the tunnel.
The Esperanza mine, is a "grass
root" silver property one mile from
the town of Alice Arm. No development work was necessary for the
extraction of its ore. It has to date
shipped over $100,000 worth of ore,
and will be one of the operating
properties of the district this year.
All work has been done so far by
hand, and the ores extracted have
been at a shallow depth. It has
been learned from official sources
that the company has been re-organized, and that a development programme on a much larger scale than
heretofore has been outlined. The
driving of deep tunnels will doubtless be instrumental in developing a
large tonnage of both high grade
and milling ore.
The Silver Cord, LeRoy and Eagle
will be developed on a much larger
scale this year, and each property
has unlimited possibilities.
The tunnel on the Keystone will
be driven to the ore body this year,
and crosscuts driven.
It is planned to continue the tunnel on the Devlin Zinc, and it is also
understood that the Bunker Hill,
which is situated near the La Rose,
will see the commencement of development work this year.
All of the above mentioned properties are being developedty mining
companies of Canada, United States
or Great Britain, and the increase of
properties operating shows that a
much greater interest is being taken
in the district.
Unlimited water power possibilities are found in the district.
Alice Arm has one of the finest
deep-sea harbors on the coast.
There were 377 mineral claims on
which assessment work was done
in 1925.
Ore can be shipped by water to
Anyox or Tacoma smelters, and
later to Ladysmith.
The district possesses 17 miles of
railway, 2 miles of automobile road,
53 miles of pack-trail and 12 miles
of foot trail.
Alice Arm can truthfully state
that no mining company has spent a
large sum of money in developing a
property that did not come up to
their expectations.
Apart from its rich ore bodies,
Alice Arm possesses other assets of
considerable importance. On the
extensive flats at the head of the
inlet are hundreds of acres of rich
agricultural land, and already a
portion of this acreage is being
brought under the plough.
The town and surrounding country is also considered one of the
beauty spots of the northern coast.
The magnificent scenery of the
Kitsault and Illiance valleys is unequalled on the continent.. Hundreds of Anyox visitors yearly visit
the camp to explore its wealth of
scenery, and gather the wild flowers
that grow so luxuriantly on the hillsides and flats.
Alice Arm possesses everything
necessary to make a town of several
thousand inhabitants, and this ideal
promises to be realized within a few
Build Davis Raft
to Carry Local Logs
Five men arrived at Alice Arm
on Monday for the purpose of building a Davis raft of logs for F. L.
Housley. The building of the raft
was made necessary on account of
the log carrying barges being unable to cope with the present heavy
movement of logs on the coast. A
large number of logs lying in the
water at Queen Charolotte Islands
teredos, and the movement of these
logs will keep the barges busy for
some time. A number of local men
will be employed on building the
local raft.

The Herald is doing its utmost
to give all possible publicity to the
mining industry of the district, and
we believe that we are getting
results. If anything happens in
connection with mining it is immediately published in the Herald, ln
this way the news is distributed
throughout ihe continent. We
believe that it is due to the efforts
of the Herald that the name of
Alice Arm has been kept alive
during the past six years, and we
further believe that our efforts are
appreciated by our readers. It
must be borne in mind, however,
that it costs considerable money to
publish a weekly newspaper even
the size of the Herald. We have
received liberal assistance in the
past, and in order to carry on, patronage of the paper, both by advertisers and subscribers must be
forthcoming. When new money
is brought into the camp for the
development of mining properties
everyone benefits, directly or indirectly, and in all fairness everyone
should help support the weekly
newspaper. We have always endeavored to give our readers the
actual facts, when publishing mining articles, and any reports received by us that do not ring true, are
refused publication. In supporting
your weekly newspaper you are
doing your part in helping to advertise our vast mineral wealth, whose
successful development will mean
increased prosperity for everyone.
The weekly newspaper, unlike
the metropolitan daily, has a peculiar place in the home. It becomes
a part of the family, because its
news stories concern the activities
of the home town folks, and what
deeper interest could be developed
than among those with whom we
live and move. The community
is the ante-chamber of the home,
and the weekly newspaper the
avenue that leads from one to the
other. Our message is this:
Give to your newspaper co-operation. Results will come back to
you in a community asset—a wideawake, forceful influential newspaper, and a power in influence
for good in your community.
The common or garden variety
of householder is now coming into
his own. Others may shine in the
various other seasons, but when
April comes, with its promise of
May and June, then the man who
knows how to do things around
the yard becomes a citizen of paramount importance. You may
know a lot about your profession,
but what do you know about seeds
and bulbs? If you can make two
potatoes grow where none grew
before, or can induce a green
onion to bob itself above the
ground where before was only
grass, you are a worthy citizen.
If you can't boost the town you
live in, then move to a town you
can boost. The man who is
living in a town he can't help
along, and do something for, is out
of harmony with things. He is
losing time and ought to move.
Co-operation put the unity in

Great Britain may appoint a
representative to Canada to act in
almost the same capacity as the
minister who was appointed from
the United States, Premier King
stated in the House of Commons.
The Premier said that the British
representative would probably be a
"high commissioner to Canada."
The use of aerial photographs in
tho mapping of the mineralized
areas of Canada, has been one of
the most important applications
made of aerial photography iu the
Dominion. During the season of
1926 over 36,000 square miles of
such area were photographed.
