Will Thoroughly Explore
Alice Arm Mineral
That the mining possibilities of
the Alice Arm district are beginning
to attract considerable attention, is
evidenced by the fact that the government has decided to thoroughly
investigate the extent and richness
of the mineral deposits of the district.
A recent dispatch from Victoria
states that:
"Complete surveys of the mineral
possibilities of the mineralized zone
around Alice Arm will be undertaken by the geological survey of
Canada this year in co-operation
with the provincial department of
"Engineers of the geological survey will cover the entire mineral
field tributary to Alice Arm, in
which the famous Dolly Varden and
other important properties are situated. This survey will commence
as soon as weather conditions
•'The provincial mines department will complete this work with
an economic survey of the Alice Arm
mineral field. This will be designed
to reveal the immediate commercial
possibilities of the area. Despite
its well-known mineral wealth, the
Alice Arm territory has not been as
active in development in the last few
years as some other adjacent districts, but this year's survey is expected to focus greater attention to
Granby Company to Increase
Hydro-Electric Power
An increase will shortly be made
by the Granby Co. of their hydroelectric power. It has been decided
to install a small unit in the place
of one of the blowers used for the
smelter furnaces. Since the smelter
has been operated on one furnace,
less water has been needed, but
more electric power is desired on
account Of the concentrating mill
and other extensions.
Anyox Becoming Greener
This year there is more evidence
of natural growth around the oamp
than there has been for years.
Plant life is re-asserting itself.
With a little effort appearances
could be vastly improved. Gangs
of men have been busy oleaning
the streets. It only remains for
householders to remove some of the
excess debris.
Anyox Yatchtsmen Busy
Along the water-front preparations for the boating season are
going ahead briskly. Together
with a fleet of other small craft
which are being given a spring
cleaning, J.' Beckett's "Wanderer"
presents a smart appearance following the renovating reoeived after
being submerged during the winter.
Dolly Varden and
Wolf To Operate
Options Also Taken on Silver Properties Adjacent to Woli by
Victor Spencer Interests of Vancouver
The Dolly Varden and Wolf
mines, will be operated this year by
Col. Victor Spencer and associates
of Vancouver. Operations to commence as soon as snow is off the
It is a matter of conjecture at the
present time as to what form opera,
tions will be carried on this year.
Advices from the south state that
the old workings of the Dolly Varden will not be explored this year,
but that work will be concentrated
on the Number 5 claim, which is at
present undeveloped, and also the
Wolf mine.
The Dolly Varden ceased operations in 1920, except for a little
work in 1921, and owing to entanglements it was not possible to again
operate it.
In its palmy days it shipped high
grade silver ore of incredible
richness, and it is anticipated that
no serious difficulty will be encountered in locating other rich bodies of
The Wolf, which lies across the
river, about 3 miles north, contains some of the largest surface
showings of silver ore in the province. Diamond drilling in 1916-17
proved these ore bodies at depth,
but since that time the property
has been idle. It comprises a part
of the Dolly Varden holdings.
Col. Victor Spencer and associates have also taken options on the
Moose mine and Climax. Negotiations are proceeding for the
securing of options on the Chance
and Silver Hoard, and it is expected
that agreements will be signed by
the owners today or the early part
of next week.
Options on all four properties are
to July 31st., but in the meantime,
as soon as snow is off the ground,
they will be given a thorough examination by a mining engineer,
who will decide upon their retention.
Miles Donald, who returned on
Thursday from a visit to Vancouver, is conducting negotiations for
Col. Victor Spencer and associates.
The Moose property consists of
five claims. It is situated on the
east side of the Kitsault River and
is owned by Miles Donald of Alice
Arm, Don Cameron of Ontario, and
Chris Nelson of Denmark. It is
about four miles from the Dolly
Varden. Considerable work was
done in 1921 and a good tonnage of
milling ore developed.
The Climax consists of two
claims and is owned by Olier Besner of Prir.ce Rupert. Tunnels
have been driven on the ore body
and the property appears very
promising. , .
All of the above mentioned prop
erties are in the upper Kitsault
country. The Wolf is three miles
north of the Dolly Varden.^ The
Silver Hoard joins the Wort,'* Climax and Moose joins Silver Hoard,
and The Chance joins the Moose.
Sunday Concert Draws
Large Audience
From the opening number to the
concluding item the programme arranged by the Anyox Concert
Orchestra, under the direction of
Stuart Steele, proved another outstanding success. Popular pieces,
all of them, they were of such well
known merit that little need be
The playing, individually and
collectively by the orchestra was
beyond praise, each number being
rendered in a masterly manner and
received by the audience with enthusiasm.
The solos by Mrs. V. McRae
were very well received, particularly "Sing me to Sleep," which
was very pleasing. Also Mr.
Roberts in two bass solos, which
were very well rendered.
Space this week does not permit the publication of the programme.
This concludes the Sunday even-
ing concerts given by the Anyox
Concert Orchestra for this season.

These ladies and gentlemen were
instructed by vote of the meeting to
press for the Nomination of T. W.
Falconer of Alice Arm. Speaking
on behalf of Mr. Falconer, Mr. Anderson mentioned the possibility of
other candidates for the nomination,
but declared that Mr. Falconer was
as yet the only definite entry and
had received assurance of support
from numerous delegates. Dr.
Learoyd also spoke in laudatory

is now being completed. The
tramway will be about two miles
long and will connect with the
company's concentrating mill and
About 50 men will be employed
when operations are in full swing.
As mining proceeds, further development work will be carried on
and the copper deposits of this
promising property will be thoroughly explored. Previous development work has been instrumental
in blocking out a considerable tonnage of copper ore of good grade.
Tlie Bonanza lies about 2 miles
from Anyox Smelter, near the
head of Granby Bay, about half a
mile from the shore.
Plans Ready New Community

Chamber of Mines Need
Ore Samples For
A letter has been sent out to all
mining districts of the province by
the British Columbia Chamber of
Mines asking for samples to be
forwarded for display purposes at
the Vancouver and New Westminster exhibitions. It is hoped
that this distriot will comply with
the request. A copy of the letter
is herewith published.
"From August 8th. to 18th. next,
we shall be holding the Annual
Exhibition at Hastings Park and
shortly afterwards another at New
Westminster. At present we are
busily engaged in making our new
headquarters attractive and useful

"We are very much concerned,
however, in getting together the
best collection of British Columbia
mineral specimens that can be obtained. Some of our members
have already been good enough to
send us specimens and we have
given these the best position obtainable in our surroundings.
"We realize that many of these
samples have been packed to the
railroad by prospectors and fully
appreciate the splendid work they
have done in endeavouring to get
the public interested in their mineral claims. We hope they have
reaped many benefits by attention
being drawn to their properties
through displaying specimens at
our headquarters and other exhibitions.
"As all mining men are aware,
mineral specimens lose their freshness very much from one year to
another and would ask you particularly to send us in new samples.
"Through the many exhibitions
we have had of mineral samples
and the publicity given to the
Mining Industry generally by the
British Columbia Chamber ol
Mines, the public are now fully
aroused to the possibilities and
necessity for proper development
of our mineral resources and are
ready and willing to invest their
money in properties which have
the approval if the Government

well recommended by a certified
registered mining engineer, or other
competent mining man.

Large Sum
Sir Henry Thornton, president
of the Canadian National Railways, before the House committee
on railways and shipping, said that
it was proposed to spend $10,000,-

a three-year program.
Sir Henry stated that he thought
the new hotel to be built in Vancouver would pay.

Should it be possible for samples
to be collected in one district or
neighborhood and deposited at a
certain point, they could then be
forwarded by freight to lis, charges
collect, and in this way much expense would be saved. At the
same time we think this would
create a spirit of competition in
the district which might be of
benefit to all concerned.
"We should also be glad to receive any photographs you may
have of interest to Mining men and
would ask your generous co-operation in all these matters.
"You will remember there is a
splendid Challenge Shield offered
annually for competition among
the six districts presided over by

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral looations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants.
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon which development work has been done

Tallest Chimney On
The tallest reinforped-concrete
chimney on the American continent
was erected in 1927 at the plant of
the Home Copper Corporation,
Noranda, Rouyn distriot, Canada.
It is 422 ft. 6 hi. high from the
base to the top of the shaft, and
18 ft. in diameter inside the lining
at the top. This height exceeds
by 13 ft. 6 in. the previous record
height of 409 ft, of two reinforced-
concrete chimneys built by the
same designers and erectors at

from London, England, discoveries
likely to be important for the Canadian beet Bugar industry have been
made at Oxford. A means has been

the year, and it is even believed
that a method of treating the resulting effluent in such a way as
to free It from poison has also
