Granby Co. Will
Operate Copper
Mountain Property
It is the intention of the Granby
| Co. to commence work at once on
' Oopper Mountain property, stated
Mr. H. S. Munroe to the Herald,
I during the week, but added that
between 60 and 90 days   would
j elapse before'the first load of concentrates would be shipped toTrnil
smelter. Considerable overhaul
work will have to be done to the
1 plant before operations are commenced,   and the  short  railway
i connecting the property with the
1 Kelley Valley Railway will have to
be repaired.   The property will be
| operated under the -name, of the
Allenby Copper Co, with Mr, L. R.
Clapp, formerly assistant   general
! manager at Anyox in charge, and
about 400 men will be needed to
operate the plant. It is estimated
that between 17,000,000 and 18,-
000,000 poun'ds of oopper will be
i an(i'!*vced each year, this with n
but "paction from' Anyox ofnearly 32,
Snl»0 pounds, will bring the total
output of the Granby Ctf. to close
on 50,000,000 pounds of copper each-
year. Complete housing, facilities

Road, Trail and Bridge
Work at Alice Ann
The work of repairing the Dolly
Varden Railway from-Alice Arm
to Camp8 was completed yesterday.
The work consisted of clearing
fallen timber from the track, and
repairing washouts with trestle
work. The traok is now in better
shape than it was last summer
states Mr. J. Wells who ha# been
in oharge of the work, and hand
cars can now be operated through
to Camp 8.
Now that,the railway is open
| for traffic a start will be made on
the upper Kitsault River bridge.
This work was commenced last
summer but owing to the . early
snowfall could, not be completed.
Considerable rock work still remains to be done, and the entire
work will occupy 10 men -about a
month. Twelve thousand feet of
lumber and wire pable etc. will be
hauled up over the Dolly Varden
Railway tracks* aa soon as possible.
The bridge is of the .wire cable
suspension type. The oable will
be anchored }o the solid rook on
I eaoh side of the'river, and will be
capable of supporting any load put
upon it. A foot bridge aoross the
Kitsault will also be built at the
foot of the Dolly Varden hill for
the convenience of prospectorsj
and a small amonnt of trail work
will he done higher up the river.
The work of blasting out the log
jam in the Kitsault River opposite
the wing dam was oompleted on
Thursday and the river is now
free of all obstructions at that

Baseball Game
The Elks baseball team won
their first game of the season when
they defeated the Smelter by the.
score of 3-1, in the presence of a
large crowd.   •
The Smelter tried out a new
pitcherby the name of Lee, and the
Elks' batters had no trouble in
hitting him, netting two runs in
the first and one in the second
innings, giving them a lead \ which
they held all the way, although it
looked as if they were to lose out
in the last frame, when the Smelter
used Curly McKewan-' and E.
Loseke as pinch hitters. Both hit
as expected, MoKewan making the
complete cirole, tallying one for
the Elks. Loseke was caught
stealing third, thereby finishing
the game.' -.
The batting on both sides was
about even, but the Elks were a
little more accurate at throwing to
base. The Smelter lost the game
by overthrowing,

Annual Report
of Granby Co.
Year's Results Show High
Degree of Activities
Heavy Development Program
Following are the principal items
taken from the Annual Report of the
Granby Co.
The annual report of the Granby
Consolidated Mining, Smelting, and
Power Company Limited, for the
year ending December 31st, 1922, has
recently come to hand. The year's
operations are reported on by Mr. H.
S. Munroe, General Manager, and the
comment ofthe Board of directors on
this report to the shareholders is
presented by Mr. 3.1. Crabbs, executive Vice-president, whose comment
on Mr. Mnnroe's statement is in part
as follows:—
'They reflect a substantial improvement in operating conditions, compared with the three years preceding.
While no material advance occurred
in the copper market during the year,
the results of co-operative efforts are
apparent in earnings, and the lowered
production cost, which latter compares
favorably with many of the so-called
"low cost" producers, and is materially
lower than prevails at other well-
known properties.
"Favorable progress was made with
the construction programme,'reported
upon as desirable in the last annual
report. The Btorage dam was finished
sufficiently to permit part operation
of the hydro-electric plant through the
fall and winter, and the completion of
this project by mid-summer will effectively solve the problem of cheap power.
Conclusions have been reached on the
design and flow sheet for the Concentrator Mill, and construction is now
under way, with assurance of completion early in the year 1924.
"In February, 1928, the shareholders
at a special meeting called for that
purpose, approved an increase in the
capital stock of the company, for the
purpose of acquiring the properties of
the Canada Copper Corporation Ltd.,
upon its reorganization. It is hoped
the completion of this transaction will
not be long delayed.
The outstanding feature of the
year's operation, is the improved
financial condition of your company
occasioned in part by the issue of
Treasury Stock for cash, and in part
by earnings.
"Your properties are in good
physical condition, the Company
organization is functioning with manifest efficiency and the outlook for the
future is increasingly promising."
Production for lOSl:
Copper 29,532,244 lbs.; Silver 405,471
ozs.; Gold 6,996.; Cppper sold (lbs.) 26,-
684,440; Average price obtained (cts.
per lb.) 13.30; Average production cost,
f. o. b. smelter 9.15 cts. per. lb.
In addition to above production at
Anyox, flue dust treated at Tacoma
returned 2,431,331 lbs. of copper and
37,033 ozs. of silver, making the total
production for the year 31,963,565 lbs.
of copper, 422,504 ozs. of silver and
6,998 ozs. of gold.
Hidden Creek Group: The following
dry tonnages were produced by the
various mining operations:
.   tons •
Hidden Creek Mine 854,686
Swamp Point Lime Quarry....   19,129
Rambler Quartz Mine    18,176
Total 891,971
Diamond drilling totalling 14,435
feet was done on the Hidden Creek
Reserve: During the year ore reserves were re-estimated on the basis of
the more conservative area-percent
method instead of the foot-per cent
basis, heretofore employed. At the
same time there was incorporated
knowledge gained from mining operations and a survey of diumond drill
holes, reserves being recorded as of
December 21st. 1922, at 8,990 tons of
2.00 percent ore. It is'anticipatedthat
further diamond drilling will restore
a considerable part of the tonnage
excluded from the re-estimate.
In the next Annual Report there
will be included in ore reserves, a substantial tonnage of lower grade not
heretofore considered as ore by the
present management. This will be
concentrated and produce copper at a
cost which will yield a material profit
at the present market.
Diamond Drilling: While diamond
drilling for the year has not been
productive of any great increase in
ore, two interesting geological conditions have been disclosed, either one of
which might be productive of a new
ore body. Owing to the distance of
both of these places from present open,
ings, there will be no definite knowledge concerning them for several
, The following dry tonnages were
handled In furnaces and converters
during the year:
Domestic Ore Furnaces, 836,080
Converters 10,999, Total 847,079 tons.
Custom Ore Furnaces, 1,416, Converters 28,108, Total 29,524 tons.
The History
of Copper
Some Early History of the
Granby Co.s Latest
The deal whereby the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting '& Power
Co. Ltd. acquires the Canada Copper
Corporation's holdings at Copper
Mountain is one of the most impor-,
tant in recent mining history of
southern British Columbia,' involving
as it does transfer of large low grade
copper holdings,1 together with equipment and rights of considerable value.
Some interesting facts regarding the
property were recently given by P. B.
Freeland in a lecture at Vancouver,
under auspices of the British Columbia Chamber of Mines. Following are,
extracts from Mr. Freehold's lecture:
The finding of the surface croppings
takesAis back over 28 years and is not
particularly interesting. The unfortunate prospector who staked the
first claim, got little or nothing out of
it, the claims being jumped by some
of his "would be" friends when he was
"The Canada Oopper Corporation, then
the B. C. Oopper Co. first worked On
Oopper Mountain in 1905, did some development, and then allowed the bond
to lapse. In 1911 the same company

by private'direct wires from the
world's market centres by

Vancouver, B. 0.
Domestic buying of copper is small
with independent producers, offering
round tonnages at 15 3-4 cents,
delivered, for second and third quarter
shipment. Large producers are holding at 16 cents a pound, and one large
agency reports sale of fair tonnage at
16 cents, but it is believed that this
was to western point with rather high
freight rate. Fabricators are inclined
to hold out the market, due to demoralization of a London market, where
standard sold at equivalent of 13.85
cents and electrolite copper at 15 3-4
c. i. f. recovering in both instances
about 0.05 cent a pound on curb after
Metal Exchange closed. It is believed
that this great slump in Standard is
due to over extension that has forced
some speculators to unload, breaking
the standard market during the last
few days as the spread between standard and electrolytic is unusually large.
This spread between standard and'
electrolytic quotations in London has
had considerableinfluence upon domestic prices as it invites sale of electrolytic in this market against standard
in London. It is believed that pessimism has been unduly great considering
low stocks of copper in producers'
hands and fair bookings shown by
fabricators for third-quarter shipment
upon which most of the copper as yet
remains uncovered. General,feelings
is that large producers have committed
tactical blunder by following down too
close upon heels of independents
before buying had begun in earnest by
large fabricators, as this gives indication of forcing independents somewhat lower to get actual business.
When in doubt, whether to kiss
the young lady good night, give
yourself the benefit of the doubt.

options lapsed. (Exploratory work on
this group uncouvered some large
copper ore bodies.
"In 1012 the B. O. Copper Co. again
took options on several Copper Mountain claims and did extensive diamond
drilling and surface trenching. In the
years following development consisted
mainly of tunneling totaling about
13,000 feet, 6,400 feet of upraises, 036
feet of sinking, 118,000 feet of diamond
drilling and 32,000 feet of trenching.
Tlie company's holdings on the mountain are 3,102,07 acres. v
Ohaloopyrite and born ite are the
primary copper minerals, associated
with hematite, magnetite and iron
pyrites. Some secondary action has
taken place on the Helen Gardner
claim, distributing chalcocite, native
copper, malchite, azurite and cuprite.
The main ore bodies are primary.
The highly siliceous alumia content
is detrimental to direct smelting,, and
in consequence a 20000-ton concentration plant has been built' at Allenby
to treat the ores. A recent review of
diamond drill and development records
and an examination of the workings
concede.5,625,980 tonsof 1.S3 per cent,
copper ore„inBtead of 10,000,000 tons Of
1.74 per cent-copper. The cutting of
the estimated ore reserves from 10,000,
000 to 5,635,980 tons is not as serious
at it may at first appear. In other

niore ore in a deposit of this type are
just as good aB the reverse. The property in spite of all the diamond
drilling, has not been thoroughly
prospected as it might have been
and when developments progress it is
more than likely that additional tonnage will be found and mined.
The ore bodies developed lie between
an elevation of 8,236 and 4,220 feet,
a distance of 084 feet. Some of these
drill holes stopped in ore at the
8,286-ft. level. The main haulage
level is the 3,170-ft. or 66 feet' below
the lowest hole. So the probabilities
for finding more ore at depth appear
to be good.

League Meeting
Continued from page 1.
Finance Committee was the addit
ion of further seating capacity at
the ball grounds. The International Service Club at Stewart had
guaranteed two hundred dollars for
the baseball and football teams to
play at Stewart on the 24th of May.
Because/the Granby Company had
transported the boys free of charge
charging only board expenses
there was a little balance left, and
this would be set aside as was
money for the same source last
year for a celebration at the end of
the season. ' It was suggested that
the people of Stewart be thanked
for their hospitality on the occasion of the visit to their own town.
The matter of thanking the managers of the baseball and football
teams for their interest' was mentioned, and with this was also
included those who did so much to
make the field day for , the kiddies
a success. The matter of the
summer oamp was referred to and
progress reported.
Dr. Hamper moved and Mr. Jones
seconded a motion that a letter of
thanks be sent to the Stewart
people who Were so good to the
players that the managers of the
teams be commended on the manner in which their duties had been
carried Out, and that those who
helped with the Empire Day
celebration locally should be included.
Mrs. Dwyer told of the great
pleasure the children had derived
from the field sports on Empire
Day. A great many people had
also commented on the fine time
the children had had. There had
been no lack of refreshments, and
every child had a fitll share.
Thr chairman introduced a matter of considerable importance to
the Community League and the
Mine Club in particular. He
pointed out that the members of

that organization found it was
impossible for the Mine Club to
function successfully unless the
Club could get 'control of the commercial facilities at the Mine. The
Chairman then asked the Secretary
to explain the situation, being more
familiar with it.. The Seoretary
briefly outlined this and stated
that when the Mine Club was
formed there wasa tentative understanding that if the Club could
organize practically one hundred
per cent ..on the hill the League
would have no objections to turning over the activities ttyere as
covered by the Pool Room and soft
drink stand. This had not been
done beoanse the Mine Club had
not been able to bring about the
unity desired. Now, under new
officials, the Mine Club felt that if
the control of the Pool Room and'
stand waa turned over to their
organization, all difficulties in the
way would be smoothod out. After
some discussion the Council agreed
to offer a proposition to the Mine
Club, which offers the control of
the Pool Room and stand to the
Mine Club, provided it was Successful in amalgamating all interests at
the Mine, and the Secretary was
instructed to notify the Mine Club
officially to this effect.
Mrs. Dwyer introduced the matter of a kindergarten, institute for
Anyox, and pointed out the number
of children between the ages of four
and six who were not taken care of
in any scheme of things. Mrs.
Cloke spoke on the same lines and
would like to see something done
along the lines suggested by Mrs.
Dwyer. After considerable disous-
sion, it was recommended that the
Secretary get all available information possible as to cost, etc. and
the Chairman on the suggestion of
Mr. Callanan that a committee be
appointed, named Mrs. Dwyer,Mrs.
